Rockers With Lungs

In the earlier years of Rock, there were plenty of female vocalists with power-lungs.  Among the noteworthy:

Janice Joplin (Big Brother and solo)
Gracie Slick (Airplane)
Aretha Franklin (mostly solo)
Lydia Pense (Cold Blood)
and of course,
Linda Ronstadt (Stone Ponies, but mostly solo).

Today, not so much.  But for my money, one stands out: Grace Potter (and the Nocturnals).
