On the recommendation of @nadasurf, I’ve been listening to and loving The Well of Sound. This episode on Bob Seger is especially great: 

Already famous, Seger was recording backing vocals with other people for some project. He was holding back, trying to blend. The producer was confused and wanted that Seger sound.
“Oh,” said Bob. “You want The Mountain.”
So he gave them The Mountain.

Bob Seger has a nickname for his own voice and it is The Mountain.

I could spend all day trying to come up with a nickname for Bob Seger's voice and not think of anything as perfect as The Mountain.
