Granted, the Somewhere Back in Time tour was a nice step up for him, but generally in the past 10 years Bruce's voice live (and even on album, especially A Matter of life and Death) has really dropped off.

3) James labrie circa Images and Words was an absolutely amazing vocalist that totally ruled. But I think he's always been one of the worst live vocalists out there. I've never heard someone who could just sound... out of tune. He's had his ups and downs, and on Score/The Octavarium tour he really turned things around for a while. But overall I've never heard a singer so capable of making me cringe live.
I'll agree that Dickinson has dropped off a bit on his range as well. The reason I mentioned it for Dio and not him is because I felt that Dio being in his late 60s and still doing well was more impressive. The reason I say Bruce's voice has never been done better is because that voice represents all that is metal to me and it fits the metal image perfectly.

I'll agree with you on LaBrie he is horribly inconsistant live. I'm not sure if it's studio magic or the option of being able to do multiple takes but he's always sounded great on CD. Which leads me to believe he can still do it vocally. But the shorter sets that DT does live now and dropping the whole "evening with" format leads me to believe that at least live he's deffinately not what he used to be.

Fa sho. Each time I've seen Origin it's been in a tiny little bar here in Lawrence, and their bassist is just mind-blowing.

And I don't ever trust someone whose last name has 4 consonants in a row!

Favorite metal singers:

Rob Halford
Bruce Dickinson
Michael Kiske

Guitarists, I can't really think of off the top of my head, it's a much more difficult question to answer for me. I'm not sure what to take into account; overall playing, performance style, quality of solos, songwriting strength, etc make it harder for me to consider than singers.

In no particular order, a rough top 15 Singers:

Nils K. Rue (Pagan's Mind)
Charles Rytkonen (Morgana Lefay)
Floor Jansen (After Forever)
Ville Laihiala (Sentenced)
Marco Hietala (Tarot, Nightwish)
Fernando Ribeiro (Moonspell)
Alan "Nemtheanga" Averill (Primordial)
Mika Luttinen (Impaled Nazarene)
Ralf Scheepers (Primal Fear)
Tobias Sammet (Edguy)
Marcel "Schmier" Schirmer (Destruction)
Jorn Lande (Jorn, ex-ARK, Masterplan, etc.)

Guitarists would be a lot harder, so I'm going to refrain for now.

Generic wouldn't really be that bothersome as long as it were awesome. Unfortunately, of those guitarists, riffmaster Iommi is the only one I feel I would truly tip my hat to as awesome.
