Since we're on a John Lennon Thread, I'll add that it was George, not John et.al., whom I would consider the soulful singer of the Beatles. IMO, none of them were really great singers, but it was George's singing that reached down, yes, into my soul. 
George is best singer next to Paul. As I said before in the question, it's not about "John can sing with soul/ emotions/ things like that" but, everybody does it in different way. Everybody's got different voice, George too. He sings like this, John sings like that, Paul sings like sth. else. In short, will disagree with popular point that just few singers can be soulful.

Doobie Brothers met Nancy Sinatra. She said "Hello, Brothers!" They said "We came here to meet our idols - The Muppets". Nancy stood like tool when they passed her by.

I found these back in 2010. 3D Read Beatles bios, got interested in Beatles' family history, checked Beatles boards & smb. mentioned Alfred sang 2 songs. Lousy singing ofc but curio.

The older I get, the more I realize that the mark of a good person is someone who acknowledges their mistakes and tries their hardest to be better. I think John was a great example of someone like that.
It's good for John & people around him. You didn't meet him, many fans here didn't meet him. Then it shouldn't matter what John was like, if he tried to be better etc. We musn't care. People bash Mike, fairly-not fairly, praise Brian, fairly-not fairly, but in these cases it's valid thing to do. BBs fans mainly praise Brian not due to good personality traits but music talents. Mike's bashed due to saying negative things about Wilson brothers, lame jokes, stage banter, can't play instrument etc. Nobody generally studies these 2's characters. To make it easier to read/ get, I'll say this - if smb. is good, it's good for them & immediate friends/ family. Likewise if smb. is bad person, bad for them & fam/ friends.
