Toss up between Keith Morris, Dez, and Rollins.

Keith Morris just has such a great voice, as evidenced by OFF! and the Circle Jerks. Like his most recent stuff a lot more lyrically than anything else. Would have loved to have seen where they would have went had he not stopped singing for them.

Dez was totally creepy and had the best voice of the three. Probably my favorite going on skill alone.

Rollins outcreeped Dez by leaps and bounds and managed to bring Damaged songs to a new level of intensity. Did My War, which was awesome performance wise, but spotty overall as an album. I could give less than a shit about most Flag after that, but it's a personal preference thing. Kind of feel like he ruined Black Flag in some ways, and made it better in others.

Although I am a fan of Rollins the person, (spoken word, work ethic) I am not overly impressed with his vocals. I don't think he ruined Black Flag or made it better. From what I have seen in docs and read, Ginn was taking the band in that direction, and Henry was just along for the ride. Henry also sounds a lot like Dez in my opinion.

I voted Ron Reyes. I like the raw, not caring, somewhat snotty, but not so harsh delivery he had.

That being said, it is not like any of them sucked. All left a big mark on music.

my vote is for ron reyes, too. he was the perfect, snot-nosed cretin to sing the early stuff. keith morris would be a close second. again, he had that snotty delivery. i never really dug dez's voice. he fronted the band at a really important time and i love those records. he was just never one of my favorites. rollins, of course, did some great records during his stint. just thinking about anyone other than him singing the stuff on "slip it in" and "my war" seems ridiculous. regardless, kira was their best bass player. no offense to chuck dukowski...
