    Default hoarse

    Is it right to define Rod Stewart´s voice as hoarse? Can I say Rod Stewart was that singer with a hoarse voice who recorded Young Turks?

    I think of "hoarse" as applying to voices that are over-used or the person is sick.

    I would suggest "raspy" as a quality of a voice that is always that way.
