Axl Rose Says He’s Not The World’s Greatest Singer, Humble For Once

By Nadia Noir

Back in the day, Axl Rose of Guns ‘n’ Roses fame had a reputation for being quite a diva. But the rock and roll singer recently rebuked scientific assertions that he’s the “World’s Greatest Singer.”

Rose contacted Spin and gave them a list of singers he thinks are better than him.

“Big thanks to all the fans and media for the props reacting to the Spin top vocalists article.”

“From what I could tell, the original article was for the most part only talking about the professionally recorded vocal range of the singers they compared calling the entire group “The World’s Greatest Singers.” It’s very flattering and humbling to be included in such an illustrious ensemble.”

“If I had to say who I thought the best singers were, I’d say first that I don’t know there’s a definitive answer as in my opinion it’s subjective, and second that my focus is primarily rock singers.”

“That said, I enjoy Freddie Mercury, Elvis Presley, Paul McCartney, Dan McCafferty, Janice (sic) Joplin, Michael Jackson, Elton John, Roger Daltrey, Don Henley, Jeff Lynne, Johnny Cash, Frank Sinatra, Jimmy Scott, Etta James, Fiona Apple, Chrissie Hynde, Stevie Wonder, James Brown and a ton of others (predominantly 70′s rock singers) and would rather hear ANY of them anytime rather than me!”

“Peace!”

“Axl”

Who do you think is the World’s Greatest Singer?
