        His singing was brilliant for the stadium rock genre.

          I thought he was great. It seems like most people who detest him have a dislike for most or all of the high-voiced guys of that era like Geddy, Rik Emmet, Brad Delp, etc.

          I love all that stuff.

          <div class="message">Dokken has no album called <i>Storm of Dragons</i>. If they did, the songs would all be about this one dragon who got his heart broken by a mean female dragon. The riffs and solos would be killing, though. <img src="http://img3.harmony-central.com/acapella/ubb/smile.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Smilie" class="inlineimg" /></div>

              Definitely Yes!

              What brought up the question?
              Who do you think are the best male singers?

                The OP may or may not answer, but I'll throw in three that are amongst my current favorites:

                Russell Allen of Symphony-X
                Jorn Jande of Jorn, ARK, Masterplan, etc.
                Roy Khan of Kamelot


                But I also listen to stuff like Aretha Franklin, Tony Bennett, Sam Cooke, etc.

                  Love him. Some people make fun of Journey and call it bubble gum, but the Infinity and Evolution albums were rocking to me.

                  He's definitely up there as one of rocks great pure vocalists. I'm not saying he's Ann Wilson or Freddie Mercury, but he's up there, lol - (was going to include my all time fave Robert Plant but he had the raw gritty bluesy thing rather than the pure clarity of Perry, Wilson and Mercury)

                    I'll step out on a limb here and say Perry was better than Freddie Mercury.
                    Freddie didn't pull off half the stuff live that he did on the records.
                    Perry did it all live, and then some.

                      I'm going to be the voice of decent here and say "no"
                      He's good, but Journey doesn't particularity do it for me.

                          Yes - at his peak he was all that - and maybe two packs of Ho-Hos within his genre (pop/rock).

                            I don't know man, bluesy?
                            Ray Charles had piano talent AND his voice was/is great IMO. You could feel his pain or joy in each song he did.

                            How Steve Perry hit those high notes and his tonal quality, the airyness to his voice is unmatchable...
                            I dig Don Henley as well.
                            Peter Gabriel is probably my all time favorite.

                            Mercury had a great voice as well but it was different to me
                            than a traditional singer. His lower range was weaker than the mentioned above. Great Rock voice, no doubt.

                              I also dig Roland Orzabal-The real singer of Tears For Fears, not Curt.

                              They were totally underestimated IMO..
