Thread: Best female lead singer?

    Best female lead singer?

    I'm sure most would say Debbie Harry or maybe Stevie Nicks.

    My personal favourite would be Delores O'Riorden

    Actually youíre right with all of those additional caveats, but Pauline Murray certainly improved the punk scene from an attractiveness point of view. It also helped that Penetration had some great stuff as well...was gutted when they split up

    Sandy Denny of course!

    Re: Best female lead singer?

    Martha Reeves, of Martha & The Vandellas, Gladys Horton, of the Marvelettes, or Carolyn Gill of the Velvelettes. Loads of great female singers from the 60s soul era! In the rock world it has to be Janis Joplin and Grace Slick

    Kate went to the same high school as my wife.

    A fantastic voice. And Coming up for Air is a great record. Still have it on vinyl.

    No one went for the souful ones like , Amy Winehouse ,or one of our best ever sellers Sade ?

    Re: Best female lead singer?

    Lots of good singers mentioned so far. However you can hardly say, for example, that Janis Joplin was better than Sandy Denny or vice versa as they had completely different voices singing in different genres.

    Re: Best female lead singer?

    Stevie Nicks, Natalie Merchant of 10000 Maniacs, Linda Ronstadt when she was with the Stone Poneys, Janis Joplin.

    Mavis Staples is right up there too, also don`t forget our own Dusty Springfield and what about Elkie Brooks in her Vinegar Joe days.

    Are we just talking about singing here? Because then we have to get into Billie Holliday, Ella Fitzgerald, Aretha Franklin, Mariah Carey and Christina Aquilera and maybe people like Sarah McLachlan, Adele etc. Not all neccessarily my cup of tea, but deserving of respect.

    Shout out to: Patsy Cline, Bessie Smith, Chrissie Hynde, Karen Carpenter, Liz Fraser, Stevie Nicks, Madonna, Carole King etc etc

    I thought the OP was looking for leads of a band or group. Let`s be honest this is a list with no end to it.
