So well said, Rell! I definitely think Paul is underrated. Of course I'm biased, but he was able to scream with the best of them, and get that gravelly sound to his voice that we all love so much. I personally rate him #1 for rock singers, followed closely by John, and then Robert Plant, Roger Daltrey, and Freddy Mercury (I'm obviously partial to Brits). His ability to record a song where his voice is so pure and then immediately switch gears and go into his full on, screaming-gravelly voice is unparalleled, in my opinion.
