Well since we've had a thread on distinctive vocalists, it inspired me recently to list some vocalists who actually have simular voices rather than those who stand out amongst the crowd. Here's some of mine:

John Lennon- Liam Gallagher.
On the last two Oasis albums, Liam's voice has deviated from the grouchy, scratchy John Lydon-esque vocals in favour of perfectly rounded, clean Lennon style vocals. If you get the chance, listen to a song called "Born on a different cloud" which not only did he sing but also wrote. Teh resemblance is mind blowing to say the least.

Neil Finn- Darren Hayes
Yep, as much as i'd hate to say it, they do have simular voices. Maybe not so much now, but back in the earlier days of Savage Garden, there were some simularities. I was listening to the radio one day and they were playing "To the moon and back", when the song stopped the and DJ started talking, he said "and that was Crowded Hou-....sorry Savage Garden." Ever since then I saw how the mistake was made.

Eddie Vedder- Scott Stap
Eddie- original. Scott (from Creed), unoriginal, boring and over rated, but still sounding like Eddie Vedder. However, he has a big climb to reach Eddie's clarity in song writing.

Freddie Mercury- George Michael.
When I was younger (about 8 years old), I thought the song "Another one bites the dust" was in fact a song by George Michael, not Queen. My father made sure Santa declined my usual income of presents that Christmas.

Eric Clapton- Paul Weller.
Although not a clear match, there's some simularities in the way they "wooooo-oooo-ahhh" and ablib during their songs, not to mention their very dry and rusty blues vocals.

Paul Dempsey- Pete Murray.
Musically there's a discrepant fluxuation, but vocally, quite close.

Any you can think of?

They really take this Beatles-adoration too far, the Gallagher brothers. At first they sounded fairly different, but more and more they seem to spend their time trying to imitate everything about John Lennon. Liam has the attitude, the glasses, beard + hair, singing voice...didn't he even call his son Lennon?

He does sound like JL though.

If you ever get the chance, have a listen to Julian Lennon's song 'Valotte'. The resemblance between his vocals on that and his father's songs is absolutely eerie Eeker

Anselm,

You're exactly right on that observation. I remember the first time I heard it. The resemblance between father and son was haunting.

As well he should've! Wink

Agreed. Definitely a resemblance there. I actually heard the song before I was informed that it was in fact John Lennon's son.

Interesting.....the late George Harrison and his son Dani share an almost identical appreance. Like Paul said at the George Harrson Tribute concert:

"It's like we all got old and George never got older".
Phil Judd and Roger Waters, well, maybe. (To me)

I cannot possibly comment on the John Lennon - Liam Gallagher, as I don't wish to use the c word. One is an incredibly talented singer song writer, and the other one is an angry mop, with a burberry coat on.
Unfortunately for me, Oasis came at a time when I thought "If just one more person tells me how great Manchester is, I shall have to blow them up".
Phil Campbell (White Buffalo) and Eddie Vedder

I didn't think it was possible for anyone to sound like Eddie, his voice is so distinctive, but if you didn't know their songs, you could easily get them confused. On that note, if you are a Pearl Jam fan, then I really recommend White Buffalo's "Last of the V8 interceptors".
