A quarter billion album sales - he's terrible.
He’s either the world’s best bad singer or the world’s worst great singer.
He’s such a mess, technically, and a large proportion of the time it sounds like he can’t be bothered. But those other times? You get this:
(Which, incidentally, is an example of the “technical mess” as well as the greatness; there are ghastly misfires of pitch and support in there, but they hardly seem to matter, the expressive focus and nuance is so breathtakingly good.)
They both did this video spur of the moment after the 9 hour recording session for Live Aid.
"When YouTube prankesters created a "silent" version of the Dancing In The Street video that removed all the music and vocals and just left in some fake squaks, shuffles and the odd grunt apparently coming from the performers, one of the clip's biggest fans was none other than David Bowie himself.

Mick is one of the greatest ROCK singers of all time. I can't imagine so many incredible songs The Stones put out with someone else singing. Plus Mick is by far one the greatest front men ever. He is Mick FREAKING Jagger.I think an easier way to pick this one apart; look how many people have tried to mimic Mick’s vocal style and how many have stolen his stage moves.
From Scott Weiland to Maroon 5, his stage moves are certainly celebrated far more than his vocal capabilities.
