    He probably wouldn't qualify but to me it's Greg Allman. A southern rock, soul singer if you might.

    If the soulfulness of the vocals are what we are looking for

    Terry Reid
    Rod the Mod
    Paul Rodgers

    ...and Freddie Mercury, judging from "Somebody to Love" alone.

    And yes, Simpy has a great voice for soul. Shame about the music.
