Sure. You’re correct, Mike Patton is universally recognized by his peers as one of the greatest vocalist/frontman in the history of rock music. Ok.

Yes, he kind of is. He might not be a big star but he's recognized as one of the greatest vocalists in rock music by people familiar with his work (peers included). I won't bother with sources, if interested, try google.

This topics and articles that pop up saying axl or anyone for that matter have anything more than a 4 octave range are stupid. Nobody can sing anywhere near 5 or 6 octaves it’s physically impossible.

Axl can hit (maybe) a low eb below middle c (think demon “long time” in TWAT And the highest I’ve heard him is an a high e ... so the 3rd e above middle c.

when people start throwing around this or that person have a 7 octave range. That’s like being able to sing the entire piano range. Impossible period

Naff question, but where would Meatloaf fall here I wonder. He hits some pretty high notes on the bat out of hell album. 
 

(bat out of hell was one of the few rock records my parents had, so I listened to it a lot back in the day)

Lol I remember when I was younger, back with dial up internet and information and videos not being immediately accessible, looking at the back of the Appetite CD and thinking that the guy with the low voice on ISO must have been that mysterious looking dude with the black hair a.k.a. Izzy :lol:  Naive kid me thought that is was Axl on the high parts and Izzy would duet with him whenever they needed a low voice ha

I thought the same thing! It just sounded completely different... and I was 11 without internet😄

Ya he still doesn’t have a 7 octave range.

the devil “long time” in TWAT is the lowest and the “anything for you” at the end is highest 

 

4 octaves not sure what imaginary note in aint it fun they refer to having him hit 3 additional octaves higher but whoever wrote this is an idiot

We know the list. But what does it say that Axl sucks now and keeps touring! It’s awful.

 

Never thought McCarthy was a great singer.. I prefer Lennon, and some will claim Harrison. So he could be the third best singer in a band of four. Okay.
