Own voice found

Visiting online forums related to British musicians, it's to be expected that I encounter Americans who describe themselves as 'Anglophiles'.  I presume the reverse happens in the fan communities of US bands, though I doubt that's as forgone a conclusion as it was in, say, the 1950s and 60s, when 'American' was automatically exotic compared to the rather austere post-war UK.

That led to an additional thought: British vocalists of that era frequently adopted Transatlantic singing voices, but off the top of my head, I can't think of a single modern singer who still does. When did that happen?
