    Re: Album Oriented Rock (AOR)--A dying radio format.

    I briefly had a blog titled "Heading for the Light" after the Wilbury's song.

    Rev, you have outdone yourself this time. I listened to the Wilburys' song twice in a row, and again after listening to the rest of the tracks.

    I am thinking long and hard about "best rock vocalist ever". I will weigh in on that later.

    Right now I want to add my favorite Wilburys track:

    What if this is as good as it gets?

    Oooh. Best rock vocalist. Someone is going to say Freddie Mercury, to which I would say mechanically speaking an argument could be made.

    But I would say Aretha, Ray Charles, Robert Plant, and really Elvis are all better contenders.

    Best rock vocalist? I'd go with Paul Rodgers with honorable mention to Lou Gramm.

    I might go with Roger Daltry or Eric Burden, but I'm too Medicated to think about it much. Chris Cornell gets an honorable mention along with the uber-copied Bowie and Vedder.

    Re: Album Oriented Rock (AOR)--A dying radio format.

    I like all of the above suggestions for rock vocalist, especially Paul Rogers. I also love Ian Astbury, Ozzy and Chris Robinson, but I have to give my vote to this guy from Seattle.

    Geoff Tate.

    Ozzy has a great voice, one of the things that always gets lost in the other stuff.

    I like Paul Rodgers as well-

    Daryl Hall's voice is awesome.

    I would like to also give a late nod to Roger Daltrey as well.

    Chris Cornell has to be in the conversation and I personally like Rod Stewart when he sings a rock song.
    I was in the ORG once, best 6 months of my life.

    Perhaps not a "rock" vocalist, but I have to throw my vote in for Sam Cooke. If there's been a better pop music voice in the last 100 years, I've not heard it.

    Re: Album Oriented Rock (AOR)--A dying radio format.

    The Wilburys whole first album, "Vol. 1," is pretty great, top to bottom. I've always loved "Heading for the Light."

    And this is just an excellent thread.

    Like so many artists, Rod gets hit because of his latter work.

    You can't be young and edgy forever...

    Love Rod's stuff all the way up to the Motown Song. That was the end lol...

    Another guy who takes a load of undeserved grief is Phil Collins. Guy is the most successful artist of the 80s behind Michael Jackson and people practically stoned him.

    If Rod Stewart or Paul Carrack were to sing the phone book in lieu of an actual song, I'd still be all ears. IMHO, as Rock vocalists, they were that good.

    For clarification, I previously stated that John Waite was/is one of the best Rock vocalists ever. It is impossible to determine the "best," due to different genres, even within the scope of "Rock" music. Nobody has suggested any duds here.

    As for Phil Collins, when he was on--Genesis and AOR solo material--he was awesome. For some reason, though, he tried to re-invent himself as the next Celine Dione later in his career, which, IMHO, the quality of his music sank faster than a brick in the Atlantic Ocean. Thus, the backlash.
