Back in the day Robert Plant, easily..

These days Geddy Lee (although I always preferred the music of Rush)

Never been a big fan of Gillan to be honest.

He's barely done any wailing since Hemispheres.  After Moving Pictures, he toned it down considerably and his 80's/90's/00's output has been much more accessible, vocal-wise. 

I love his singing in every era, though.  I've always thought him better than Plant.  He gets my vote.
In blood, he's writing the lyrics of a brand new tune.

I'll vote for Geddy... but David Surkamp from Pavlov's Dog is the best "squeaker" in my opinion.

I don't even care much for LZ, but I prefer Plant's voice over the other two by miles.

Indeed, don't think I've ever heard these guys 'squeak'

If they did, it would have been in the privacy of their own home, and never committed to vinyl.

That's Gillan, in'nent it. Good voice that could easily stretch into the stratosphere. And he still got it, too.

Plant - Gillan - Lee, but each one perfect for their bands and songs.

No one squeaks.
Gillian is my favourite singer, especially when he sings Jesus in 'Jesus Christ Superstar'.
I like Plant, too. Geddy does not sing, I agree LOL

Oddly enough, Plant is the only one of the three whose voice actually annoys me (though I do still like quite a bit of the stuff he sings). Between the other two, I'll have to give it to Gillan for making far better use of his range.
