    What a tough choice. I'm going to list two groups of five because I can't decide. There are certainly others I can't think of off the top of my head but here we go.

    Mikael Akerfeldt - Opeth
    Jerry Cantrell - Alice in Chains
    Maynard James Keenan - Tool
    Dio - Dio / Sabbath
    Phil Anselmo - Pantera

    Bon Scott - ACDC (1974 to 1980)
    Till Lindemann - Rammstein
    Chuck Billy - Testament
    Rob Flynn - Machine Head
    Bjorn Strid - Soilwork

    James LaBrie - Dream Theater
    Tarja Turenen - Nightwish/Solo
    Liv Kristine - Leaves Eyes/Solo
    Geof Tate - Queensryche
    Dave Mustaine - Megadeath

    I could probably add another 5 that would be equal with my 4'th and 5'th on the list. Much of it depends on the type of music i feel like listening to, so it's somewhat subjective, even in my own mind. ;)

    I was driving today, thinking about this thread. I wished I had room for Paul Stanley And Michael Sweet. I let my list be, but I'm glad they got mentioned.

    Oh yeah, she was great there too! I prefer Leaves Eyes as a band, but she was just as good in both groups. ;)
