Soul’s Best Screamer?

When I say screamer I don’t mean a powerhouse gospel styled shouter

I mean an actual scream

The contenders:

James Brown: as Eddie Murphy once said, to James a scream was a lyric

Wilson Pickett: in the liner notes of one of my Pickett CDs someone said that “James Brown screamed screams, Wilson Pickett screamed notes”

David Ruffin: he didn’t do it nearly as often as the other two but he used it to devastating effect to perfectly punctuate a song. I also think that no matter how well you can sing a proper Ruffin scream is a whole different talent

Who else comes to mind?
