We’ve closed the books on our Best Male Singer poll, and we’ll tell you who was voted the winner by our readers and contributors tomorrow.
As with our earlier polls, we received a ton of votes — nearly 250 names were submitted this time around. It was a varied field, but in the end we had one clear winner.
So check in for our top crooner.
The Best Male Singer poll was or third, following our best guitar player and best album contests — won by Jimi Hendrix and Pink Floyd’s Dark Side of the Moon.
And we’ll keep it going. After the first of the year we’ll ask you for your list of Best Female Singer.
Like our earlier polls, we’ll keep it wide open, allowing entries from any genre and any era. Our philosophy is that these should be wide-open contests under the theory that great guitar work, great singing and great music transcends genres.
We hope you agree, and we hope that you keep reading and participating.
Until then, Happy Holidays to all.
