Axl Rose Says He Wouldn't Call Himself the World's Greatest Singer
Posted by Jeremy Thomas on 05.28.2014



Remember that list that was published recently that called Axl Rose the world's greatest singer? Axl himself has responded to the list and it's remarkably humble for a man of the Guns N' Roses frontman's reputation. Rose told Spin that while he found the recognition both flattering and humbling, he wouldn't put himself at the top of the list.

Rose told the site, "If I had to say who I thought the best singers were, I'd say first that I don't know there's a definitive answer as in my opinion it's subjective, and second that my focus is primarily rock singers. That said, I enjoy Freddie Mercury, Elvis Presley, Paul McCartney, Dan McCafferty, Janis Joplin, Michael Jackson, Elton John, Roger Daltrey, Don Henley, Jeff Lynne, Johnny Cash, Frank Sinatra, Jimmy Scott, Etta James, Fiona Apple, Chrissie Hynde, Stevie Wonder, James Brown and a ton of others (predominantly seventies rock singers) and would rather hear any of them anytime rather than me!"

The original list had taken Rolling Stone's list of the 100 Greatest Singers and ranked them according to vocal range. Guns N' Roses are in the middle of their residency at Las Vegas' Hard Rock Hotel and Casino and are reportedly working on a new album.
