Top 5 Frontmen of All-time

Who are the greatest frontmen of all-time? This is the question some co-workers and I tried to answer one rainy afternoon. After a heated discussion and bouts of whiteboard flailing, we came up with a solid top five and a few honorable mentions. We were trying to get at the best true frontman, so there were some criteria to follow: They couldn’t play an instrument, have their own name in the title of the band, or be a solo act. To make this list, they needed a sense of style, a big personality, and an even bigger ego. This is one of the most unique jobs around, and these guys truly make the world of rock and roll go round. So without further adieu, the list…

  • David Lee Roth
  • Mick Jagger
  • Bono
  • Steven Tyler
  • Robert Plant
  • The Six Spot: Freddie Mercury, Roger Daltry, Ozzy, Jon Bon Jovi, James Brown, George Clinton, and Johny Rotten.
