1. Steve Marriot
Who else? Just like Terry Kath in my guitarist list, there’s only one person comes to my mind when talking about underrated rock vocalist. Every time he sings with his raunchy and impressively strong, it likes hearing his heart sings out instead of his mouth.
Best cuts : All or Nothing, 30 Days in a Hole
2. Eric Martin
When mentioning Mr. Big, it is always about Paul Gilbert (guitar) and Billy Sheehan (bass). Both are highly recognized by their peers and fans for their proficiency at their respective instruments.. Yet many people forget that Mr. Big are band that play songs, not instrumental. And there is Eric Martin, with the peculiar and raw rock voice inspired by Marriot, Rod Stewart. As with most of singers on this list, this guy can sing hard rock and slow ballad both as great. Compare aggressive “Addicted to that Rush” and romantic lullaby of “Promise Her The Moon”.
