More comments about Lauri Ylonen
He should be number one. He owns the stage and gives the best performance I have ever seen - over and over again.
Oh come on this man has twice (or more) the charisma of jared leto, the confidence of freddie mercury and a very very very very unique voice
I think Jagger should be number 1. I know others wouldn't agree because some prefer Freddie Mercury, Robert Plant, James Brown etc and that's understandable. But Mick is still surely top 5 in that scenario. But Jared Leto? Come on people!
Who even is he?
He inspired rock artist of 80s and up!
Jared Leto and Bon Jovi tied for first/sencond place and Robert Plant is at seventh? WTF?!
Robert is deffinetly the best frontman of all time. With his beautiful, unique voice, his charisma and his undeniable ability to put on a wonderful show and interpret the Led Zeppelin songs with such passion that you would think he's singing them for the very first time, he is truly a ROCK GOD.More comments about Robert Plant
ronlunaMore comments about Axl Rose
One amazingly talented individual. He seriously has no competition with these others. His vibe, energy and overall compassion for music is flawless.
I am in love with Jared Leto, so whatever list he is on, I will vote for him!
He seriously can't be compared wit others... He's unique.. Just like their band... Just like their music... UNIQUE.More comments about Jared Leto
He sings with such feeling and passion.
Hes a songwriter, singer, multi-intrumentalist, poet, political activist. etc.
Pure genius. No one has better lyrics. His voice is up and down the scales. Simply amazing. Soothing songs like Aerials or songs like Chop Suey! where he pours his heart out in the end. The best.More comments about Serj Tankian (System of a Down)

Axl rose is steven tylers love child which he is ashamed of how can he be above the deom on screamin
Absolutely amazing voice. Should be at least number 5. Just shows what the world of music is coming to with him in this position.
Should be at number one, this is absolutely ridiculous, jared leto? Whats with the obsession of him? Jonathan davis? Influential on metal but not for his stage presence, at 64 steven tyler is still enertaining crowds, look at videos of him in the 80's and he was in his late 30's early 40's, without him there is no axl rose or energetic glam frontmen, he knows how to enertain a crowd, plus aerosmith is amazing, so stoked to see them on tour this summerMore comments about Steven Tyler
Ozzy should definitely be higher on the list
who else bites the heads off live animals on stage
Ozzy is arguabley the greatest and Eddie Vedder, chester from linkin park, sting, and jon bon jovi are ahead of him? Ugh that makes my stomach hurt knowing theres people who believe that
I thought for sure Jim would come in at #1. I've never seen another frontman with his prescence and charisma.
Anyone who has studied rock music will agree that Jim Morrison was the first (and still one of the best) "frontmen" - as we now know the term.
Bon Scott was a true frontman of rock n roll as well as Brian Johnson. Jim Morrison was great too, him and Bon went too soon RIP
Look at some AC/DCs live performances with Bon he is awesome on stage!
Bon Scott is the best frontman, he had a great voice, he brought plenty of energy, and he put on a show. Some of these singers just stand there at the microphone and shake their ass.

Roger Daltrey is the best frontman of all time.. The very best voice. See Woodstock - See Me, Feel Me. You will agree. No contest!
Roger is really underrated on this list along with sting, eddie vedder, dave grohl, billy corgan, jim morrison and steven tyler.
the best front man of all time by far, just an amazing guy with amazing talent, amazes me that he's not in the top 10
Best there is in my opinion. Very entertaining. Every show is different and he brings everybody in. Doesn't matter if it's 1000 or 60 000 people. Legend!
Should be top 5. Amazing talent. Everything he touches turns to gold. He also seems to love his fans and we all love him back!More comments about Dave Grohl (Foo Fighters)
John Lennon was a great songwriter, possibly the best ever, but was he really the Beatles' frontman? The four of them were about equal partners.
John was a great man, who just wanted peace, and he was a great frontman. What is wrong with you people? He wrote many Beatles songs, and he had a great solo career also. He is in hall of fame. 48th place, really?
John was a Great musician and personality. He was a fighter. He was a fire. He was a bright. He was a TRUE! And he always live in my heart and hearts of many other people.
No one else runs around like this guy and still sings perfect
Agreed. This list is bogus. It;s all about popularity. Saw him live, he was jumpin all over the place. Put on a truly awesome show
Has one of the greatest and most powerful voices in rock n' roll history, and he still has it even in his later years.
OMFG! matt should be in the top 3 4 sure. listen to the scream aim fire album. that shows off his singing voice and his guitar work!
good looking and talented...
Ok I am going to say right now, any spot other than top 3 is a plain insult to this guy. There are few frontman that have ever lived that had as much vocal range as Perry. The guy was an amazing vocalist to say the least.
He's just amazing, he has an incredible stage presence and an amazing connetion with the crowd. Also he has the most beautiful voice.
well for a start he looks the way a frontman should do... scrummy! d=
One of the greatest frontmen and entertainers of all time, no one can do a show as 'Diamond' David Lee Roth! Split leaps, kicks, and his one and only voice is what a real Heavy metal frontman is made of! Ladies and gentlemen, I give you the originall, the one and only: David Lee Roth!
A frontman should be charismatic, able to draw the spotlight to himself, while commanding the attention of the audience, and Diamond Dave was a master at it.
David Lee Roth got the crowd going evertime he put on a live show doing high flying ariel spin kicks doing and split leap off the drum stage.
This man is legendary when it comes to performance live.
OzzyVanHalenMore comments about David Lee Roth
Yes, He is the best at anything. I'm happy that he is in this list.
his voice is awesome)))
Hope he'll be the best))
wish good luck to other guys))
He just should be far the first ever!
Gackt is best frontmen, singer, compocer, musician and like a person forever.
LuciusMore comments about Gackt
Absolutely the best frontan ever, what a voice, what a personality, what a charisma! Better than anyone from this list
Epicness pervades his every character, from his voice to his stage presence.
Absolutely great frontman, one of the best ever, he is perfect connection the largest emotions, awesome timbre of voice, great passion, peaceful messages, sense of humour and great charisma

great frontman, admired by many japanese artists like yasu of janne the arc
he is the frontman of the notorious band in japan l'arc~en~ciel.
see you at 2011 world tour, with the greatest band in the world with hyde, the best frontman ever!
ronlunaMore comments about Hyde (L'Arc-en-Ciel)
I love this band He is great one best of the rock vocalist in recent years. He would be in my top 10 of all time
he is amazing and a great live performer
Elvis deserves way more than to be where he is. He wasn't called the "World's Greatest Entertainer for nothing" and he's been dead for 34 years and he's still making more money than a large percentage of the people on here.
If you have never seen jarvis in action, you have really missed something unique!
Gerard Way is an incredible artist with an unique voice, he gives so much emotion through his songs and we all LOVE his sassiness! He deserves to be in top 10 of this list, cause he is a pretty good frontman of an amazing band and he shows it every single time when he is on stage with his great energy!
Definitely needs to be higher up in the list! The way he performs with such energy and enthusiasm is amazing. LONG LIVE My Chemical Romance!
You people should see how the crowd reacts to him every moment that he is on stage. Its magical. No one else like him in the music industry.More comments about Gerard Way
What a frontman should be... The role model for others.. Complete charisma and magic energy with hair and tats to boot.. Give it away now
Anthony has his own style he is best funky vocalist ever his rock his energy his charisma he is simply the best of all time

JOURNEY's new Frontman AP brings a new JRNY feel..

so humble, very impressive..
he deserves to be on the list.

they Rock every concert venue..
75 sold out tours 2008,
Platinum REVELATION album,
what a feat! all in ONE year!
what more this 2009..
really, AP's very promising!
the way he moves on stage, really gets you in the mood. and a haunting voice
maynard could easily be in the top spot. he has one of the greatest voices the world has ever heard, if not THE greatest.
i think he needs more credit. he has one of the best, if not THE best voices that fans of progressive rock and metal have ever heard, and you are just deaf if you can't realize that.
a great vocalist and frontman of bands D'ERLANGER, DIE IN CRIES and BUG. He was with hide of X-JAPAN in the band YOKOSUKA SAVER TIGER as a vocalist.
NOBODY can beat his style... Mixture of arrogance+ charisma... Totally badass... His walk his talk everything tells me he is the best frontman ever!
You can't have more charisma as a frontman than this GOD!
He captured everyone in audience with his power voice and vocal abilities. He may not have been flamboyant as some of the others on this list, but he didn't need to be... His presence said it all. RIP Layne
i have no words.
he is the best.
rest in peace. we all miss you A LOT.
Layne is GOD.
Kurt is great too, but Layne had much more of an impact. AIC FOREVER.
he is so amazing! and energetic.
pretty much pelle is god.
the best frontmen ever
given to the fans 135468798%
just the best
Passion and Emotion pretty much describes what he brings to the table. Seeing some of these rankings shows the average 'age' to be young. I'm not old, but respect what has come before. Seeing some of this shows that people really haven't listened to a ton of music that are voting.
He should be #1!
He really gets the crowd to interact, he even "flies" to the audience at one point in the show! THE best singer to DATE! His voice is SO cool!
He can really sing! And a great entertainer!
Paul is without a doubt, the best frontman I have ever seen. Critics of Kiss have obviosly never been to one of their concerts. Pure Energy... These guys will blow you away!
I can't believe he's so low in this list! Should definitely be #1! Nearly 60 years old and still sexy as hell! One of the greatest, and certainly most unique voices around!More comments about Paul Stanley
Tren is the voice of the depressed genius. He is amazing live and in the studio and his persona is an inspiration to many.
trent reznor is on this list because he is the only member of NIN who is responsible for their success.
Attitude and skill. Vicious guitarist!
Sexy as Muk. And Jared Leto, I guess. Actually scratch that, Cornell is in his very own category. Right up there with bassist Zach Longhi.
Indeed, he is good... a lot
Dude, just listen to Slaves and Bulldozers, or anything by Soundgarden and you will realise that Chris is the greatest frontman ever.
Wonderful Voice, very enjoyable to hear the passion he puts into his lyrics.
Best Frontman ever... both SlipKnoT and Stone Sour...
I love Corey Taylor! Slipknot Stonesour. Two hit bands at the same time. Talk about not wasting your talent. He busts his ASS to make his music. One of the front men of all time.
The Greates Frontman of all time. He has deep and thoughtfull lyrics. No one puts more emotion into music like Thom.
He can doing a solo with sings!
Superb vocalist and composer, underrated though!
Fred Durst is truly a hero to us all
He is the toughest frontman ever.
Brad, has a great voice and puts on a great stage show.
Unappreciated by hipster and angsty teens, Jason Wade is the closest thing to Kurt Cobain since Kurt Cobain, and he does it without ripping off grunge like Chad Kroeger.
Great frontman and a rarity as he was a bassist... and a great one at that!
Great range and singing much better than many of the guys up here.
Bret should be in the top ten, not only does he have a great voice but he puts on a great show
Why is toshi all the way down in this list he should at least be in the top 20's he is amazing. A voice that makes everybody feel the song and makes you want to listen to it all day! His voice can hit every note amazingly his voice is powerful! If anyone comes down further on this list vote for toshi or post it on facebook so other people or x Japan fans can vote for him!
The most bright person of 60-s surely
The man has an amazing stage presence and puts on one hell of a show.
THE original charismatic front man of rock. Jim Dandy was the pioneer for guys like David Lee Roth, Axl Rose and Jesse James Dupree.
In all honesty, if you've seen him live - you'll know what it's like to be truly in the palm of a frontman's hand. The entire band are amazing, but Pelle steals the show with his charismatic and entertaining show.
If you ever listen to Jeff you will hear that his vocals are surpassed by none. Just 10 seconds of his amazing voice is enough to crush you.
STAR OF THE SHOW EVERY TIME
hes the only good member of a crappy pop-rock group.
are you people forgetting the main dude in the indie rock band world vote vote vote rock on kooks!
This man is incarnation of rock'n'roll, his solos played 20 metres above stage are INCREDIBLE! Their every show is unique.
Brad was just amazing! The power, the skill, that voice! He truly was the nicest man in rock n' roll! R.I.P.
