I'd have to say John Wetton was my favorite singer in the genre. I will assume that I'm not correct and that any further guessing on my part will be fruitless.
Where would rock 'n' roll be without feedback?

Demis Roussos - 999


I would never have guessed the number 1 and it's one reason I don't like the person's music very much.

If Derek Shulman is on the list, I'm sending a nasty letter to the editor.

The singer fits the song. Can't imagine Anderson singing "Man-erg" or Hammill singing "To be over" :roll:

It wouldn't be my choice but I thought number 1 would be Jon Anderson Peter Gabriel

It is indeed disappointing not to see Lee Jackson in the top 5

It amused me that Thijs van Leer was even in the list

He doesn't actually do much 'singing' anywhere....

Certainly the number one Prog yodeller though!

Well, of course the answer is Jon Anderson. It can’t be anyone else. So let’s have a look at that list.
