OH, I forgot to mention MORRISEY!

I shot this shot from the guitar pit at a Garbage show a few years back...

I give chicks no breaks in music... the ones i mentioned (and others) are great in comparison to anyone else... you are either a rock n roller or you suck... and there is a lot of leeway, but I don't

Agneta Fältskog from ABBA. She's back. This is the first single:

While I'm thinking about it - last night I saw that 'Runaways' movie with Dakota Fanning and Kristen Stewart and it wasn't half bad. Kinda heavy handed at first, but the sight of Fanning dressed as a stripper singing 'Cherry Bomb' to a Japanese audience is too good to pass up. Fanning all growed up now, and Stewart wasn't nearly as annoying as she has been in her mainstream stuff.

This is good and nice rack on the guitar player.

Love when HFCers post this video. They do a great job with the song, and yes, there are some very nice visuals going on!

Maria del Mar fronted National Velvet... saw them live in a large club back in the day. They were opening for the London Quireboys...

That show was scary loud but super clean. I have to say that mixer was TOPS!

I / we had the pleasure of opening for Maria's post NV project called 'Hassenpfeffer'. She is something else let me tell you!

so many. Ann Wilson, Amy Lee, Holly Cole ( killer torch jazz singer), Allison Goldfrapp, Little Boots, KT Tunstall, Gretchen Wilson, Liz Phair, Alanis Morissette, Shakira, Amy Winehouse, etc.

These two have gotten most of the playtime lately though, I love em both.

Pinks latest album is killer. It's basically a rock album.

and it's no secret I'm enamored with Gaga's voice.

There are so many female artists from the 40's-70's that I wish I knew more of.

Karen Carpenter was definitely a once in a decade pop singer in my opinion. She possessed very thick vocal chords and had superior tone quality. Like a great guitar tone compared to plywood.

There is no doubt that black singers, and Italians to some extent have more, thicker or something in their vocal chords by nature than results in a fuller sound. It's nearly like you have to double up some in the studio to get that rich and fullness. Of course there is an overlap like with any genetic benefit with others. But this benefit is not the exclusive property to a good singer make, but an important one. Plain old tone, thin or not, can be just as important.

Example. Justin Timberlake. Sings songs written for singers like MJ, but for this reason he sounds inferior to me. He is not singing to his strengths imo and comes off sounding thin, unlike the rich, broad note sounding R&B singer he idolizes and was the in thing when he was coming of age.

I prefer the timbre and tone over strength and fullness, and the type of music is probably by far why I like certain singers over others.

EDIT: Substituted R&B for soul

I'm not sure how much of a racial advantage there might be for some vocalists, but proper training helps immensely I think. Christina Aguilera and Lady Gaga both share the same vocal coach and have been trained since young. I do like girls with big, full voices.

as far as R&B goes, These girls have always been near the top of my list.

I am 100% sure of racial differences in vocal power and thickness of pipes. But that does not make someone a better singer. I wish it was o.k to actually say that different races had varying vocal strength and tone traits without fear........ where is the Japanese Aretha? Maybe 1 every thousand years. Not hard to find in the USA.

Listening to Aguilera is like fingers on a chalk board. I just don't like the tone of her voice, the belting and acrobatics (forgot the term). They are emulating R&B and I bet there are 1000 black girls at any given time that can smoke Aguilera for the effect she is reaching for. She has looks and technique, but tone quality is poor imo, and it goes back to what she is trying to emulate.......she is at a disadvantage from the start.
