In your opinion, who do you think is the better vocalist? Not just the best voice, but quality of music. I'm sure everyone here has heard atleast one song from Queen or Journey, if you haven't here is a sample. As my favorite band is Queen, I'm a little biased, but I say Freddie.

Queen (Freddie Mercury) "The Show Must Go On"

Journey (Steve Perry) "Wheel In The Sky"

I like them both for different reasons, but the nod goes to Freddie for me.

I don't care for either band. I like a few songs by both, but I hate that style of music.

In terms of singing, I'll go with Mercury.

I love Queen and Journey, but I HAVE to give my nod to Freddie. He put so much passion into his song. "Bohemian Rhapsody", "We are the Champions", and "Dont Stop me Now" are some of the best songs ever...

Freddy Mercury was an Opera quality singer, one of the greatest performers in rock n' roll history, and a great composer. There are few other frontmen that can touch him.

Freddie – fantastic voice, and the only front man I can think of who can get away with going onto stage in just a pair of underpants. And I share my birthday with him.
