I have to admit that I didn't know who Grace Slick was.  But, after a quick 
Google, I see she was in Jefferson Airplane / Starship etc.
And yes, Somebody to Love, White Rabbet, We Built This City etc. all prove 
that she had a great voice.

> SHE had the best voice in rock I think...well, at least female voice.

Hard to choose between Grace and Janis Joplin.

> Neil's is unique, but it took years for it to grow on me

Neil is currently my 2nd favourite rock artist (after The Who).  His guitar 
playing, songwriting, and just his whole attitude towards music is 

But his voice... hmmm.  It's certainly an acquired taste.  As much as I love 
his music, I would never vote for him as the Greatest Voice in Rock.
