A discussion I was having with friend and fellow music enthusiast Jeff Knapp led me to this fine topic; who is the greatest front man in music? One could go in many directions, who was the most energetic, who was got the crowd involved, who held the crowd captivated not only during live shows but on video as well as just listening to them. Well, I’ve given all that a lot of thought and this is my top 25 front men (and women). Let the debate begin!!

25- Wendy O- The Plasmatics

24- Keith Morris- Black Flag/ Circle Jerks/Off!

23- Morrisey- The Smiths

22- Grace Slick- The Great Society/Jefferson Airplane

21- Ian Curtis- Joy Division

20- Greg Graffin- Bad Religion

19- Cherrie Currie- The Runaways

18- Corey Taylor- Slipnot/ Stone Sour

17- Jeffrey Nothing- Hatrix/ Mushroomhead/ Purgatory

16- Henry Rollins- State of Alert/ Black Flag/ Rollins Band

15- Perry Farrell- Janes Addiction/ Psi Com/ Porno for Pyros/ Satellite Party

14- David Lee Roth- Van Halen

13- Rob Halford- Judas Priest/ Fight

12- Bruce Dickenson- Iron Maiden

11- Robert Plant- Led Zeppelin

10- Layne Staley- Alice in Chains/ Mad Season/ Class of 99

9- Mike Patton- Mr. Bungle/ Faith No More/ Fantomas/ Tomahawk/ Peeping Tom

8- Eddie Vedder- Pearl Jam

7- Mick Jagger- The Rolling Stones

6- Ozzy Osbourne- Black Sabbath

5- Jim Morrison- The Doors

4- Maynard James Keenan- TexA.N.S./ C.A.D./ Tool/A Perfect Circle/ Puscifer

3- Iggy Pop- The Stooges/ Kill City

2- Freddy Mercury- Queen

  1. Philip H. Anselmo- Pantera/ Down/ Superjoint Ritual

Oh did I leave your favorite singer off? Maybe your favorite front man should try a little harder and maybe they would have made my list.  We could go round and round about this, but this is my list so deal with it!
