Keith Richards rates the 20 Best Singers of All-Time, according to Keef. Pretty interesting. It's not my Top 20, mine would be far different, though I'd pick some of the same singers that Keith picked, like the one and only Aretha Franklin "The Queen of Soul." I Love Aretha and she is one of my favorites of all-time, I don't know if I'd make Aretha # 1, though I can see it and would not argue with it or Keith at all, though I think my # 1 spot on the 20 Best SIngers of All-Time would probably go to "The Chairman of The Board," Frank Sinatra. Keith left out Mick Jagger but put himself on the List at the number 20 Slot of The Best Singers of all-time. I Love Keef, but he would not be on this list for me, but on the 20 Best Rock Musicians of All-Time? Yes! And who the Hell is Toots Hibbert in the number 7 spot? Never heard of him. Not on my list. 

Yes I've heard of Jimmy Cliff, and I like him, not on my Top 20 Best Singers List. Nor Tom Waits, another singer I like, just not part of the 20 Best Singers of all-time. Willie Nelson I can see. Though Willie is not a great singer, he is damn good, and his style and delivery, I can see as a top 20 singer. Bonnie Raitt is great, as is Elvis Presley, who I'm sure would be # 1 on the List of millions of hardore Elvis Fans in America, England and around the World. Warren Zevon? Damn good singer but not on my Top 20 List. Aaron Neville, top 20? Yes, he's an amazing singer. Great voice and great delivery, with his own unique sound. Mavis Staples, another great singer and good choice by Keith. Buddy Holly, one of the founders of Rock and a great performer, just not on my Top 20 Best Singers of all-time list. Muddy Waters, one of the greatest Blues Singers of all-time, I guess he can go on the list. Otis Redding, Best 20 Singers All-Time? "HellYeah" !!! And I guess Smokey Robinson too.
