Subscribe to Loudwire on
We don’t know how they do it, but some of rock and metal’s greatest singers are just gifted beyond gifted. Take a listen to these 10 Rock + Metal Singers Whose Voices Never Aged.
The late Ronnie James Dio was simply a force of nature. With a singing career that spanned over 50 years, Ronnie’s voice always held up and remained stronger than the great majority of his contemporaries. Even when the heavy metal icon was battling cancer, Ronnie sounded phenomenal on Heaven & Hell’s The Devil You Know album and subsequent tour. If we’ll have one everlasting memory of Dio, it’s that his voice never once showed a sign of weakness.
Another five-decade veteran is Led Zeppelin legend Robert Plant. Nobody could keep up with Plant’s charismatic style during Zeppelin’s high points and the frontman continues performing to packed houses to this very day. Plant’s solo material showcases his still golden voice and even when he busts out some Zeppelin, it’s clear Plant hasn’t skipped a beat.
Beyond straight-up crooning, it’s a whole different beast for vocalists to stay strong over the years when they employ a more extreme style. Overkill’s Bobby Blitz has somehow prevented his vocal cords from shredding apart these last 30 years with his freakishly high and powerful shrieks. Check out Overkill live in 2017 and Blitz’s voice will be as piercing as ever.
