I had a discussion with some musician friends over the weekend and we tried to come up with our top 10 singers from the classic rock era.  Obviously if we were talking new rock you'd have to include Myles Kennedy of Alter Bridge and Brent Smith from Shinedown.  But coming up with a top 10 of classic rock singers, not necessarily "frontmen," was easier said than done because it's so subjective.  I've included some songs here but they're not meant to be representative of the artists best stuff.  Here goes nothing -
