Jimi Jamison is an interesting case. He has lost a lot, and managed to get a fair amount of it back. His voice is a LOT more raspy, and a good amount of the high range is gone also. He's done a very good job getting that tone back and sounds a lot better than he did around the Survivor Reach album, but don't kid yourself.

As far as singers, you can "lose" in several ways. Range is the most obvious, but you can lose clarity, depth of voice (aka power) and tone also.

As far as singers who have lost very little, that list begins and ends for male singers with John Farnham. Danny Bowes of Thunder would be fairly high on that list also.
