This topic would be incomplete without mentions of Roky Erickson and Don van Vliet.

So mentioned.

The Lizard king, and the inventor of crazy stage antics:Jim Morrison

Jim Morrison is up there, Robert Plant is there too. but for me it has to be Maynard James Keenan of tool. I've seen them several times and every time that guy does something different.

I recon Anothony Kedis from the Red Hot Chili Peppers would be the best. But thats just me

Freddie Mercury is the greatest, of all the great frontmen, Freddie is the most godlike. I was there during live aid '85 and I urge you all to watch radio ga-ga of live aid...

Freddie...That is prolly the only good choice I have seen so far...

But...people...seriously...all of your choices...come on...Tom D.? Are you serious? Billy Joe?

The best of the best of the best...Musician, Song Writer, poet (in rock) Front man, vocals, of alllllll time, to this day...

Is Maynard James Keenan of Tool/APC/Pucifer

I will debate that all damn day.

John Lydon, of course....tha man is a god....and we have the same birthday....

I know its already been said, but I have to...again.

Jim Morrison, The Doors.

Hands Down. In my opinion, no contest. Based on his Charisma alone, he was an excellent frontman. Add in his dark poetry, his testing the limits, and that luscious curly hair? Hands Down.

david lee roth & eddie van halen end of discussion

posted on Sep, 25 2008 @ 12:41 PM
In general I'd say Plant and Freddie M.. Jagger looks like an epileptic on stage, it's too damn distracting. Best voice Steve Perry and Freddie M..

Personally I'd say overall Robert Plant and that kid from Hanson.

Haha, this is like discussing the best politician of the cold war.

but i'm going to go ahead and say gene simmons. in terms of crowd interaction at live shows and as being a band leader. no one can touch the man.

the best ive seen live would have to be michael hutchence
he oozed everything a front man should have...voice, charisma and worked a crowd like no other.
