    queen is better than most of those names
    According to who?

    Queen cannot do what The Platters can do, you do know this, right? They can't do what The Doors do, right?

    Queen trying to do Gloria? Queen trying to do Voodoo Chile?

    What Queen puts out is boring as fuck.

    yeah but the reverse can be said. can hendrix try to do bohemian rhapsody? can the doors do Don't stop me now? music is a matter of taste, so if queen isn't what floats ur boat, that's fine. but when we're speaking about objective talent, not about preferred style... purely as a VOCALIST, mercury is more talented than the guys you're bringing up. he also has more gritty performances (I Want It All, Headlong, Dragon Attack). He's not a one dimensional diva.

    How did The Rolling Stones get so big (far bigger than Queen) with Mick Jagger as the lead VOCALIST? How can Janis Joplin be the Queen of Rock? Who is looking for the kind of voice that Mercury has in rock & roll? Vaughn Monroe is considered one of the greatest vocalist ever he'd suck as a rocker. Sinatra can't do rock & roll.

    Queen is just too fluffy.

    Like I;ve told you before, you never really seem to pick up on things. Dylan does something different and as we have seen he makes it work. Think Howlin' Wolf, Joe Cocker, Louis Armstrong...ok? They have a style that just grabs ya. HELL NO....it's not your classic American Idol stuff, but it's not suppose to be.

    Dude, I;ve never seen anyone who needs things so deeply explained to them like you. You can't tell I prefer a gruffer approach to rock than what Freddie Mercury brings? Wow~~~~~

    Bob Dylan has a unique style, he is an original and his place in Rock & Roll on a much higher place than Freddie Mercury.

    find a list that calls dylan a better rock and roll vocalist than freddie mercury. basically, find anybody that agrees with you on this. i looked around for 10-15 minutes and looked at 20+ rankings, all of which had mercury easily ahead of dylan, many having him #1.

    i get that your opinion differs, and that's cool... but its yours alone, not some objective fact

    Where did I ever say Bob Dylan was a great vocalist or better than anyone? Show me. What I said was what he is trying to sell he does it as well as anyone and his record sales prove that out.

    This is not Bob Dylan.




    Not stick an acoustic guitar and a rack harmonica on Freddie Mercury, and he's trying to sell Rainy Day Women....hahaha~!~

    so after about 30 minutes of searching and not finding anything, you give up your argument that bob dylan is a better vocalist than freddie mercury. cool

    be honest, of all the lists you looked up just now, in how many of them was mercury #1 overall? be honest, avante. because when i google "greatest rock and roll vocalists of all time" and click on the lists on the first couple of pages, he's #1 in quite a few of them

    I didn't look up any lists for just singers. I look at songs. A song has a lot more going on than just the vocals. Dean Martin can sings circles around most rockers so what, I don't care for his songs. Those country singers would destroy the rockers, so what.

    Freddie Mercury can sing but the songs he sings suck. I;m guessing teenage girls like Queen and their songs.

    The thing is you STILL haven't got what I;m saying, wow~~~~~ Do you really think anyone thinks Bob Dylan is a better singer than well...anyone? Dude, Dylan can't sing, that isn't real obvious? BUT...it's his combo of lyrics, guitar/harmonica and the way he sells his songs. I love his sound, that nasal delivery. He can't be mistaken for anyone else. I prefer his sound to that of Freddie Mercury when it comes to rock and roll....ok? I don't want an opera singer doing rock songs, ok? I don't what perfection....YUCK~~~~

    You really have to be told all that?

    Rock and roll guy, rock and roll...ok? Now if we are talking soul. R&B...NOW....the vocalist means everything.

    Let me guess, you don't get any of that do ya?

    Do you really think there is anyone in the world who thinks Bob Dylan is a better singer than Freddie Mercury or ayone else? Dude, why not pay attention to what is being said, ok?

    ONE MORE TIME

    Tony Bennett can sing circles around Dr. John...but....no way he can sell the stuff Dr.John trys to sell. Same with Bob Dylan, his vocals are PERFECT for what's he's seliing.

    See where I say.....Same with Bob Dylan, his vocals are PERFECT for what he's selling.

    Now think, ok?

    I;ve never seen so many total morons in one place before, its actually weird. It's as if this place is a magnet for dummies. Nobody ever picks up on anything, wow~~~~ You have to actually get out a crayon and draw pictures, sheesh~~~~~~~~~~

    How could anyone think Bob Dylan is a great vocalist? Are you kidding me? What I'm saying is what he's trying to do with his style is working, his success has proven that. He is an original and unique. And a legend and one of the great rockers. His music will totally outlive anything Queen ever did. And I and others would rather listen to him than that wimpy/faggy Freddie Mercury shit.
