Comments (0) Add to My Stories He's one of our most beloved rock stars famous for his huge mouth, snake hips and distinctive vocal style.

But Mick Jagger has come only ninth in a poll of the greatest voices in rock.
It was the high-pitched rough-edged wail of Led Zeppelin front man Robert Plant that won the title after he came first in a vote organised by digital radio station Planet Rock.

But despite the surprise placing for Jagger, the top ten names in the 40-strong list, unveiled on air yesterday, featured several other British rock heavyweights.
Freddie Mercury came second, Paul Rodgers of Free came next while Who frontman Roger Daltrey came fifth.

The only female voice on the list was that of Janis Joplin.

The Greatest Voice in Rock Top 40 was compiled by the station's DJs, presenters and listeners, plus musicians, rock critics and experts such as Tony Iommi from Black Sabbath, Phil Manzanera from Roxy Music, Ian Anderson from Yes and Led Zeppelin biographer Mick Wall.

Planet Rock Programming Director Trevor White said: ‘It’s great to see Britain has produced the top three greatest rock vocalists of all time.'
But despite Plant's enduring popularity with fans and his peers, he refuses to go back on tour with Jimmy Page, John Paul Jones and Jason Bonham for a Zeppelin re-union.
