Here We Go Again! The 10 Greatest Frontmen in Rock

The July issue of the UK’s Classic Rock Magazine has a feature on the 10 greatest frontmen in rock. According to Blabbermouth they are:

01. Bon Scott (AC/DC)
02. Freddie Mercury (QUEEN)
03. Robert Plant (LED ZEPPELIN)
04. Dave Lee Roth (VAN HALEN)
05. Steven Tyler (AEROSMITH)
06. Ozzy Osbourne (BLACK SABBATH)
07. Axl Rose (GUNS N’ ROSES)
08. Bruce Dickinson (IRON MAIDEN)
09. Roger Daltrey (THE WHO)
10. Phil Lynott (THIN LIZZY)

Not too sure about Bon Scott getting the nod here. Personally I think Freddie Mercury set the bar pretty high but as usual this is so subjective it’s tough to really argue about it one way or the other but really Bruce Dickinson? Run to the hills buddy and make way for Mick Jagger for crying out loud. He almost single-handedly invented the position!

  1. Where is Jim Morrison. He made The Doors. Without him they would have went nowhere. SO you know he is a good frontman.

  2. well actually in the magazine…i believe jim morrison is at 11 so thats good. I’m a huge AC/DC fan but i might put Robert Plant at number 1…phil lynott is not top 10

  3. I’m a huge AC/DC fan and seeing Bon get #1 is great. I know alot of people are going to say he shouldnt be #1 and, even being a huge AC/DC fan I was going to say that too, but after thinking about it, I agree. He released 6 albums, all of them AC/DC classics. All of these 6 albums are quite underrated. When AC/DC staretd getting famous, Bon died. If he did not die, he would have been the greatest rock n roll frontman of all time.
