First example Journey. Great band. Wheel In The Sky is fantastic song. But if you ever have seem them live, lead singer Steve Perry grates on you after a while.

Second example Santana. The first time I saw them in the fall of 1978 lead singer Greg Walker was great. The second time I saw them in 1981, lead singer Alex Ligertwood was a big step down.

Third example is sure to stir up a debate. Black Sabbath was awesome with Ozzy Osbourne. Ronnie James Dio was a much better fit in Rainbow with Ritchie Blackmore.

Fourth Example Rainbow. As mentioned previously, Dio was tremendous with Rainbow.  Graham Bonnett was a huge step down from Dio.

And one more. The Grateful Dead. Jerry Garcia was a shitty vocalist. Bob Weir should have been the lead singer on more songs.

Tito Santana was flattered that he was offered to replace Greg Walker, but he had been offered the AWA and WWWF World Titles, and decided to continue his career in wrestling.

Black Label Society.  Zakk Wylde should stick to the guitar.

Geddy Lee of Rush is the poster child for this thread, and I love Rush.

There's a Canadian band called Our Lady Peace who have a decent sound but the lead singer sounds like he's constipated or something.

I saw a band open up for Ace Frehley last year called Seven Second Stare (I think that's it) who had a good sound and a lead singer who was embarassingly obese and untalented.

I absolutely disagree with both of these, especially the second one.  I still think Sabbath was a way better and much more rounded band with Dio.   Don't get me wrong, I loved the Ozzy stuff....but Dio burned him in every possible way.

As for my choice....Megadeth, easily.  There are times when Mustaine's vocals fit the music very well, but he's just gotten worse over the years to the point of embarrassment.

On the flip side...a band with a fantastic lead singer but is wasting that talent playing generic cock rock is Shinedown.

When I think of Sabbath, the songs that come to mind are Paranoid, Sweet Leaf and Iron Man. That's Ozzy. I couldn't name you one Dio Sabbath song. Probably a generation gap between the three of us.

You can't name any songs off of "Heaven and Hell" or "Mob Rules"?  Seriously?

Queen + Paul Rogers. How can you replace Freddy Mercury? And in this incarnation, Brian May took on more vocal duties, and his very weak voice is no good for stadium rock.

Same here. I love the Dio stuff 1000x more than the Ozzy Sabbath, and I even think Dio sang the Ozzy songs better...
