    American Idol in the 60's?

    If the TV show American Idol was around in the 60's or 70's...What classic rock stars wouldn't have made it past the judges because of their "questionable" singing voice.

    ....Joe Cocker

    Must agree, Bob Dylan, Joe Cocker, Janice Joplin.

    Some odd answers to this one, every one of these singers are unique in their own way, nobody is perfect, especially musically, I can't sing to save my life, but I get the beat, which to me is the main thing.
    Bob/PKB

    I'm not saying I don't care for these singers, just that I don't know how successful they'd have been auditioning for a 1970's American Idol.

    Boy.girl bands ain't my thing, it seems these shows focus on producing crap like that, sign of the times.

    I'll take your word for it, as I've never watched more than a minute or two while channel-surfing. :0

    Bob Dylan and later Tom Petty

    Good ones Elmo. TU

    I'm going to go with Janice Joplin. It took me a bit to appreciate her sound and her music.


    Oh and hi Coach! : )

    Coach

    Hi Colleen...always nice to hear from you. Good answer! TU

    Edith Bunker.

    Coach

    Don't know if Edith qualifies as a "rock star" PP but definitely a questionable singing voice. "Songs that made the hit parade!!!" ha ha

    Screaming Jay Hawkins

    Jimi, Smokey, Stevie W, Michael J, Tommy James, Cass Elliot,Linda Ronstadt to name a few and don't forget Marvin,Otis, Jim Groce etc.etc.etc.

    Coach

    Not sure if I agree with all of those but thanks for your input!
