And the Greatest Singer of ALL TIME Is…
…Axl Rose? Really?
That’s the conclusion to be drawn from the metrics that went into this chart which details vocal range. No one has a greater range (low to high notes) than Axl. In his prime, he could reach down to a B-flat-6 and scream up to a F1.
Before going any further, let’s ponder this with a listen to “Welcome to the Jungle” paying attention to Axl’s vocal calisthenics. At his peak his range was greater than that of Mariah f**king Carey.
Take some time to study this chart. It’s instructive to note the singers that finished near the bottom. And who knew that Tom Waits had that kind of range?
