Everybody hears Cedric as a ST now, Yu-Sheng is still better placed as a HT IMO... though I've never got what was all the buzz about him being the "highest-voiced man ever", or with Hitchcock and the other guy who always got compared to him... all of them sounded like fairly normal tone wise, with their tessitura suggesting them as HTs.. I even had trouble think about that other guy (whose name I can't remember.. was it Cook?) as a HT for a while, after hearing his (very normal-sounding) speaking voice and relatively strong lows.

and I'm honestly puzzled that anyone hears him as a LT. That would put him in the same category as Paul Simon, Freddie Mercury and Morten Harket? You could probably make a more convincing case for HT than LT. Meh, I'm not that bothered about voice subtypes anyway *goes back to looking at pretty photo*.

I do not agree. Regarding voice type he reminds me of LaBrie. An ST with some extra weight in the middle of his range.
Both of them can sing in the 5th octave while still keeping a lot of their chest timbre, while most lower placed voices (not range wise but voice type wise) start to change the colour and weight of their voice a lot up there.
Not really... Also, Bellamy doesn't belong in that category.
Ray was right when he said that there is way too much voice type discussion here. The voice is a very flexible instrument, and there's honestly just too much overlap to strictly classify each voice type. Remember, even in the classical world where natural voice placement is vastly more important, it's far from unheard for singers to switch from, say, lyric tenor to dramatic tenor, or even baritone to tenor. Adam Lambert is simply a tenor with enough vocal skill to sound convincingly lower and convincingly higher when need be.
