I sorta get what you're saying, but in the MHR genre, a lot of singers "shout" a lot more than this. Not saying that I dislike him as a singer (and I know that some on here really rate him), but Graham Bonnet's vocals always struck as very "shout-y." Sounds promising. Not fantastic, but definitely promising.

My personal favorite Southern Rock act. I will also say that, when I played (hacked) a little guitar in my younger years, it was often the tone these guys had on tracks like "If I'd Been the One" and "Back Where You Belong" that I sought.

Definitely. but it wasn't the norm. Even on the Stars song, we have Eric Bloom's silky smooth voice. And the likes of Phil Mogg, Phil Lynott, Louis St. August, etc. had styles that didn't incorporate soaring, shouting, screaming, screeching, raspiness, gruffness, operatics, etc. But those acts were certainly in the minority. Many/most of the really big acts at the time (whether Sunset Strip a

Dave, I'd say you're bang-on in terms of ranking them on their success levels, but IMHO, those rankings have very little to do with quality. I'd take pretty much every B & C grade act (and probably some of the D's as well) over Crue (and maybe Ratt too).

I've seen the video, and I own the LP. I never got from it what you did. I just saw and heard a singer giving an impassioned (and silky smooth) performance. And his part of the song is a highlight for me. I love the juxtaposition of Dokken's voice alongside the likes of Dio, Halford, Shortino, and Tate. Having said, all of this, I should point out that I wouldn't even consider putting Don

I dunno, I think he had all the power he needed. When I listen to tracks like Tooth & Nail, Unchain the Night, Dream Warriors, Lightning Strikes Again (about as raspy and abrasive as he ever got), I hear about as much power as is necessary. In fact, any time I've ever listened to any of their classic, early stuff, I've just never thought that the vocals lacked power whatsoever. Guess i

Again, I thought the thing that made him stand out was how clean his vocals were, alongside the Dios and Dubrows. It was one of the times that his vocals had a pretty strong nasal sound, though.

I definitely think of DD as being a better vocalist than VN or SP. I might be talking out of my butt, but in my mind, the primary thing that made DD different from almost all of his peers was that his vocals were always smooth and clean. Dokken's heyday came at a time when many of his peers sang in really high registers, the operatic style of singing was big, so many singers had gruff/gritt

In addition to the three you mentioned, Mark Free (stoked to see him on so many lists!!!), Lou Gramm, Ron Tabak, and perhaps Robbie Lablanc (so cool to see his name mentioned as well!) and John Elefante.

Cool. Yep, you got it exactly, DJ Kona! :-) Realistically, I probably wouldn't create a 50-song playlist for many artists. If I really want to just hit highlights, then 20-30 would often be just about right in a lot of cases. Some exceptions (for me) would be Kiss, Priest, Journey, Harem Scarem, and Rush, as well as some of the non-MHR stuff like the Beatles, Tom Petty, etc.

It's probably a case of splitting hairs and over-thinking things, but in my mind there's a difference between a playlist of 50 songs with no filler and 50 songs that are all "favorites." It would be really easy for me to make 50 song playlists for quite a few acts which would never once have me thinking that I'd like to skip a track. I genuinely enjoy pretty much every track on a

I wondered a little about KD because of the fact that they don't have that many albums out. I guess it's probably important for me to point out that for me, they are a band that can pretty much do no wrong. I know that some of the folks on here feel that way about acts like Thin Lizzy, Whitesnake, Magnum, Uriah Heep, etc. For me, I just love the sound of this band, and I enjoy the substantial

I could do a 100 for quite a number of artists and legitimately enjoy every song. 50 would be relatively easy for a lot of the bands that I really like... 100 tracks: Kiss Journey Judas Priest Rush Harem Scarem Queen 50 for sure: Outfield Saxon Scorpions Van Halen Bon Jovi Dokken Survivor AC/DC Stryper Dare Def Leppard Foreigner Heart Axel Rudi Pell MSG Killer Dwarfs

I'll spin it today. I owned a g/h compilation from the time we had our DJ service, but I'm afraid I never really played it either, with the exception of one or two of her big hits from time to time.

Cool to see the lists. Some personal observations... A few acts got more mentions than I would have expected: Pretty Maids, Night Ranger, Y&T... Not that the don't deserve it, but I didn't expect to see Toto on so many lists either. I think they were on more lists than Journey, Foreigner, Survivor, and Styx. Somehow I really didn't expect to see Kiss on so many lists. I'm not sur

I know exactly what you mean about recent years. Personally, I've enjoyed music from every decade from the earliest years of rock 'n roll, and I really I love the '70s and '80s (probably safely described as MHR's "classic years"). But the past decade or so has been like a breath of fresh air for MHR. I think most folks on here are quite familiar with my opinions and my love for s

Definitely melodic and rock, but somehow in my mind, they're in a different "category" than your typical, traditional MHR act. Maybe it's because they were labeled an "alternative" act during the '80s? I know it's silly, but around these parts, folks often place an "OT" before posting about non-traditional MHR acts. I would think that they'd qualify. I dunno, may

I tend to like 'em. I think everyone's definition of "ballad" might vary a little, but I'm simplifying and basically just thinking tracks with a slower tempo... A few of my favorites that come to mind include: Dare - Calm Before the Storm, Belief, etc. Signal - Loud & clear Khymera - The Greatest Wonder Lionville - II The Storm (both) David Zaffiro - The Other Side

As many of you know, I have a really hard time with lists - mine often go over the maximum allowed. However, in this case, I am locked in and have been for quite a while now. The first three could be a little interchangeable, based on my moods, but these are definitely the top 5.... Journey Kiss Judas Priest Rush Harem Scarem
