: Here's an odd one. For a project, I've been
: asked to come up with a list of about 18
: singers who had distinctively rough or raspy
: voices. Think of Alex Chilton's opening line
: on "The Letter" as a good example.
: Others I've come up with include Rod
: Stewart, Bonnie Tyler (who some said was the
: female Rod Stewart), Joe Cocker, Nat King
: Cole, Louis Armstrong, Bob Dylan, Hurricane
: Smith and 1970's onward Marianne Faithfull.
: Can anybody else suggest some more vocalists
: who had a bit of a rough edge to their
: style? Thanks in advance for your answers.
When he wanted to, the late Richard Manuel (of The Band) could 'rasp' with the very best.
