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!
