Sam Cooke the great link ?
So I was checking out the faithfully tutorial and Ken mentioned how much of an influence Sam Cooke was on Steve Perry. So I looked him up and checked out a few of his songs and WOW!! This guys licks, ennounciation and melodies are littered throughout a lot of the great singers from Soul, Rnb and even hard rock and metal. Probably about 90 percent of the stuff that really appeals to me as a student of singing.
