I cant believe that Ronnie James Dio is not on any list here.
The guys vocals surpass any that are on the list alive or dead.
I could go on and on about him but will just say that his voice and lyrics are amazing and will,if not already, put him into a catagory all by himself at the top of all.
There are alot of great artists with great skills,but most either fade away or become crap after so many years.
There are many others I like but I just wanted to add in DIO

I second that. Beatles were the best ever.

I bet we all could also compile a "worst band of all time" using only names from above. Taste is a funny thing. I know. I'm one of the few with it.
