: I was gonna post this as a polling question, but that's getting real played out the last couple of days. But, if you looked at Keith's lead vocals over the years, on what songs does he sound like a legit singer? And not a third rate Dylan knockoff. Obviously, he's done some great songs, but his voice wasn't carrying the song, or his bad vocals made the song better.
My favorite KR vocals: "You Got the Silver", "Happy", and the first verse of "You Can't Always Get What You Want". For BG vocals and duets with Jagger, "19th Nervous Breakdown", "Connection", "The Last Time", and Sweet Black Angel". His vocals went downhill fast beginning in the early 80's. A bit too much hard liquor, coupled with the chain smoking probably didn't help much. Some vocalists sound good with a harsh rasp, but unfortunately Keith isn't one of them.
