Those singers you enjoy,....that don't really have a great voice?

There have been successful singers in almost any style that realistically did not have a "golden" voice.  Perhaps guilty pleasures.  Who are yours?


Tom Waits

I like Bob Dylan's voice

Some would say Lucinda Williams does not have a great voice, although I would disagree
