This summer, Rolling Stone asked artists – including Bruce Springsteen, Jim James of My Morning Jacket, Alicia Keys and many others – along with journalists and industry insiders to name their favorite singers of the rock era. Those ballots were recorded and weighed according to methodology developed by the accounting firm of Ernst & Young, which then tabulated and verified the results for Rolling Stone.
