At least one member of the MusicRadar team considers Jack White to be the world’s greatest living guitarist. And if we’re talking pure charisma and star quality, those of you who have seen him perform live in The White Stripes or The Raconteurs will surely agree that artist born John Anthony Gillis is a mesmerising frontman with an onstage intensity to rival anybody else in this list.
White’s haunted, explosive delivery has more in common with Frank Black than the other, more traditional singers you’ve nominated, but he’s more than capable of giving melodies a more delicate treatment when required:

"Of all time, Roger Daltrey. Of today, Jack White. It's got to be one of the two, they both sing with great passion and emotion and there's nobody around who can replicate them." (From Lewis via Facebook, thanks)
"Of today I would have to say Chris Cornell and Alanis Morissette! After Robert Plant and Chris Cornell, would be Jack White!" (From Judi via Facebook, thanks)
