Many people will probably say "Oh well, another Led Zeppelin vs Who poll, is he going to do a Jimmy Page vs Pete Townshend Poll or a John Paul Jones vs John Entwisle Poll ?" But I had done this because they have many things in common. Both were sexually attractive Shocked, both had blonde hair Shocked and both had many stage moves. But also, they have different voices. So who's the best. Robert (Baby baby bay-be) or Roger.

It's tough--  they're both magnificent and both lost a big part of their range later on;  but because of Plant's historical mastery of American Blues phrasing and what he continues to do with his solo career, I give it to Planty.

I love Zeppelin at least 3 times as much as I love the Who, but I've got to vote for Daltrey here, because he doesn't do Plant's annoying habit of scat-sing/moan/babybabying as much.  And Daltrey pulled off some screams that have never been topped.

I vote Robert. They have really lots of things in common. They used to be good friends, LZ and Who, didn't they? The only thing I really love about Daltrey more than about Plant is his dancing :))
It doesn't feel so very bad now,
I think the end is the start.
Begin to feel very glad now.

Roger Daltrey's voice is incredible. Who's Next might be my favorite album when it comes to vocals. Robert Plant's voice has a tendency to annoy me in its higher registers although he too has his fair share of great moments.

Tough poll...but not a tough decision for me. Daltrey's early recordings are damn fine, you can really hear the young boy in his vocals...then all of a sudden we get Quadraphenia, Who's Next...and wow! The vocals explode, more mature, thoughtful, with power.
And also for me, I never had a problem following along with The Who's lyrics, not so much with Zeppelin.

A very good question. Can't choose now.

Daltry by a small margin. Both are legends in their own leather trousers.

Honestly can't choose, so I'm going to vote for PLant because he has less votes, and I'm going to get to see him live in August.Headbanger

I think Planty's singing is my favorite thing about Led Zep, since Jimmy Page is the most overrated guitarist ever, John Paul Jones is a good musician but he's always at the back and Bonzo is too drunk. LOL

Same here, but that doesn't make it bad. Tongue

Plant has never, to my knowledge, sung with this fury, at this intensity.  This song is to me a microcosm of rock music at its very best



Have to say though that Plant was a more influential voice for rock, especially high singing in rock.
