Yeah, that was me. I knew I'd probably offend someone when I said that, but we all have our opinions of Bob. He's a major influence to many people for his songwriting - but probably not to anyone who calls themself a singer first and foremost. He will never be in the same class as Pavarotti or Celine Dion, who are singers first and foremost.

Technically, he had limited range, sang flat most of the time, slurred his words often - and was extremely nasal. Could he still deliver the message with conviction? Absolutely! However, he'll never make the list of "Top 100 Singers of the 20th Century" although he'd probably make that top 100 list of songwriters.
