Best "Hair Metal" Singer

I am listening to some Skid Row this morning, and was reminded how good of a singer Sebastian Bach was in his day. So who else in your opinion were among the greatest of the hair metal singers?

Poll attached, and can be revised per suggestion.

Would Queensryche be considered "Hair Metal"? If so, Geoff gets my vote.

And deserves a place on the poll in place of Slaughter

He's an incredible singer. But I think Queensryche is just outside of the hair metal years. And good for them.

Yeah, I thought Dream Theater and Queensryche, so it would be James Labrie and Geoff Tate respectively.

If they don't count, since they don't embody that "Hair Metal" stigma, I'd have to go with Bach. Leagues above everyone else talent-wise. Don't think so? Pick up Frameshift: Absence of Empathy. He is at the top of his game there. Too bad he got in a pissing match with the creator/musician because it is one of the best albums of the last decade. I would have loved to have seen future collaborations between the two.

Wikipedia told me that they would qualify.

"Glam metal is a sub-genre of heavy metal music that arose in the late 1970s in the United States. It was a dominant genre in popular rock music throughout the 1980s and early 1990s."

Bach has done some work on Broadway as well.. He does have a pretty incredible voice.

I asked the mods to change Lita to Geoff Tate. Feel free to vote him.

I really don't see how Queensryche can be considered glam in any way.

Rage For Order, released in 1986, introduced a much more polished look and sound for Queensr˙che. The album featured keyboards as prominently as guitars, and the group adopted an image more closely associated with glam rock or glam metal than with heavy metal.

Edited to add:

But there is nothing glam-sounding about that album. It's just pure metal.

I think just a bad choice for an album picture. The whole album art had kind of a gothic feel and I think the pic was trying to reflect that.
