Unique voices in rock music! Part two

Any masterpiece creates a unique, inimitable and incomparable sound that makes you shudder from the first minute. In today's article, an interesting selection awaits you, namely, "Top 10 unique voices in the history of rock!" Let's go!

Ian (Ian) Gillan

Ian Gillan

The incomparable Ian Gillan performed a great many timeless rock and roll anthems! His unique voice can rightfully be called golden in the violent 70s. The vocalist's extraordinary range allowed him to move freely from powerful aggression to prohibitively high frequencies, which became the hallmark of Deep Purple. His voice is not just a mesmerizing sound. It embodies an entire era that has given rise to the trends and traditions of hard rock.

Speaking about Gillan himself, we note that his vocal abilities have become specifically recognizable. They are unique. Deep Purple fans know that Ian is considered one of the strongest rock and roll masters of chest vocals. You can study the entire history of world music, but you will find only a few among talented musicians who, having devoted most of their work to heavy guitars, successfully and easily manage to compile styles, harmoniously combining classics with hard rock. And Ian Gillan is the same case.

Noddy Holder

Noddy Holder

Noddy Holder is one of the main favorites in the top reference rock vocalists! His velvety and so exciting voice has forever remained the hallmark of the legendary Slade and the golden rock and roll of the 70s. Just remember the famous "Ooh La La in LA"

It is enough to listen to the first verse to conclude without exaggeration: Holder really has a signature sound, and this is an indisputable fact. It is unlikely that he can be confused with someone else ... It is not for nothing that after leaving his solo career he was awarded the Order of the British Empire for success in show business. And in 2007, he was among the top three celebrities who were awarded their own star on the Birmingham Walk of Stars.

Robert Plant

Robert Plant

The voice of Robert Plant is something unimaginable, as if from another world! No one can recreate such a timbre and sound that for many years the performer has fascinated his fans and just music lovers with good taste. Only he can scream angrily or perform a composition so softly that a shiver involuntarily runs through his body ... Without exaggeration, Robert Plant's voice is one of the most significant in the history of world rock!

Millions have tried to imitate him, but even truly talented followers have not been able to come close to the manner of performing the legendary rock icon. Indeed, with such a wide range and such a masterful ability to hit extremely high notes, and seemingly without much effort, there are not so many vocalists. His trademark "howl" has become the gold standard not only of his era, but also of modern followers. However, the original does not tolerate duplicates, so it is unlikely that there will ever be a second one ...

Robert Plant: “I wanted my voice to be tenor saxophone. I wanted to be Coleman Hawkins. I wanted to be Dexter Gordon…”

Ronnie James Dio

Ronnie James Dio

Ronnie Dio is rightfully considered one of the outstanding rock vocalists of all times and peoples, and this is not a private opinion of fans of the legendary musician, but the point of view of the world's leading publications and the singer's colleagues. In an interview, Tony Iommi admitted that it was a great honor for him to perform with the icon of rock and roll side by side, on the same stage. He called Dio a star out of stars, a great talent, a real professional, and his voice was magical and incredible.

Even Ritchie Blackmore admitted: "Ronnie's voice is wonderful and truly unique, and the whole rock and roll world will miss him greatly."

And the legendary Scorpions dedicated their famous ballad “Send Me an Angel” to the iconic vocalist at one of their concerts, recognizing that Dio was the greatest musician…

Reviewers of the latest Dio albums on Allmusic believe that, unlike most other rock vocalists, Ronnie has not lost his voice with age, which already speaks for itself!

Freddie Mercury

Freddie Mercury

The incomparable and inimitable Freddie Mercury was the owner of one of the most recognizable and unique voices not only in the history of rock, but also in world music in general! The artist perfectly mastered the subharmonica technique, which is very popular in throat singing. It was she who allowed the singer to completely control his voice. Curiously, Mercury himself never considered his vocal abilities to be something incredible.

In an interview, Brian May recalled: “Once we were rehearsing “A Kind Of Magic” before performing at Wembley, and Freddie suddenly rested: “You play too high, I can’t take it like that!” We tell him that we play as always, in the usual key, and he has already sung like this a hundred times, to which he said: “Well, to hell with you, sing it yourself!” Roger and I sang, and then he mocked our bleating for a whole year!

Freddie became the greatest rock star of all time. His immortal masterpiece "Bohemian Rhapsody" was recognized as the "Best Song of the Millennium", and the single "We Are The Champions" even after so many years remains the main unofficial anthem of the winners of various competitions. In September 2016, one of the asteroids of the main asteroid belt was named after the cult performer.
