Our friends over Pigeons and Planes just published one of their most ambitious and surely discussion-friendly lists to date. They have ranked the 50 best lead singers of all time and laid out some pretty hard and fast rules. No one on the list can be better known for their instrumental work (Jimi Hendrix for example), no one from a band where other people singer (The Beatles, Beach Boys, etc...), and no solo artists (sorry, David Bowie and Elton John). Click below to read the list.
