Guns N’ Roses Frontman Axl Rose Heads Up ‘Greatest Singers’ Chart
It’s fun to debate with your friends the merits of some of music’s biggest artists, but a new chart from ConcertHotels.com
attempts to quantify what makes a great singer, and they rank Guns N’ Roses
frontman Axl Rose
at the top of their list.
The list is primarily focused on the singer’s vocal range, and Rose, with his five-octave pipes, heads up the list. The chart lists Rose as going from an F1 on ‘There Was a Time’ all the way to B flat 6 he hit on ‘Ain’t It Fun,’ putting him right at the top with such pop stars as Mariah Carey and Prince. But while Rose had the largest vocal range, he fell short of Carey, Prince and Christina Aguilera for hitting a high note on a song.
