10 Greatest Singers In Rock Music History

2. Mick Jagger - Rolling Stones

What do you think of when you think of a good rock singer? Well, if you're thinking technically, you're probably going to go with a male singer with a slight bit of grit in his voice and having just enough of a sinister edge to make him seem alluring to the mass public. Congratulations to you all, because you've basically just described Mick Jagger in a nutshell.

Although the Beatles may have reached the big time first, Mick Jagger was the first one to introduce us to what constituted a rock and roll frontman. Being as much a fan of the blues as rock and roll, the grit in Jagger's delivery feels more like he belongs in the bars in the Mississippi Delta, as he's trying desperately to reach the back of the bar. Even when paired with amazing female counterparts like Merry Clayton on Gimme Shelter, this guy has enough soul in his voice to last more than a few lifetimes.

And that danger still persists today, since Jagger takes to the road and still manages to deliver the hits just like he did back in the day. As much as the Stones have their fair share of lowlights, there was a reason why their disco years didn't work. You've already got the perfect rock and roll frontman at your disposal, so why try to mess with perfection?
