best frontman, one of the craziest performer, a multi-instrumentalist, a very cool person, a great lyrist (his lyrics are beyond deep blue sea), a heartrob even if he has a wife, he rocks the stage with his amazing vocals and also he has a great sense of humour that the audience love. - ronluna

He can SING so beautifully, He knows how to rocks with guitar, He always able to amaze us with ballad performance till rock music. He is capable to WRITE songs, He has been a LEGEND till now. I believe there's no other frontman like that... EVER!

lyrics that touch the heart or make the blood run in excitement, voice that quakes whether high or really low, looks that can make even guys swoon -- he's the best frontman EVER.

HYDE is amazing! I love his voice and his songs are really touching! he is the greatest frontman ever!

53Paul StanleyStanley Bert Eisen, known professionally by his stage name Paul Stanley, is an American musician, singer, songwriter and painter best known for being the rhythm guitarist and co-lead singer of the rock band Kiss.

Why so low? I have no idea! Paul Stanley #1 no doubt about it! The charismatic, sexy, charming, talented, energetic, upbeat front man of KISS! A living rock legend. His wailing vocals are sub par and are like that of none other! He's pushing 60 for heaven's sake! BUT he can put on better shows than anyone or any other band I've ever seen, when you go to see a KISS concert you know you did the right thing with your money! Paul Stanley's uncanny ability to go from high range vocals to low is magnificent! As a front man he does more than just sing! He plays rhythm guitar as well as song writing! HE is the heart and soul of KISS. His singing will knock your sock off! Just listen to Love gun, or any other KISS song and you'll see what I'm talkin' about! And boy do the women go CRAZY over this hunk of a man!

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!

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!

Paul Stanley is one of the best singers I've ever heard, his voice is like a opera singer on crack!!

54Corey TaylorCorey Todd Taylor was born in December 8, 1973. He is an American musician, author, and actor best known as the lead singer and lyricist of the Nu-metal band Slipknot and hard rock/alternative metal band Stone Sour.

Best Frontman ever... both SlipKnoT and Stone Sour... - skt

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.

55Billie Joe ArmstrongBillie Joe Armstrong is an American musician, singer, songwriter and actor who is best known as the lead vocalist, primary songwriter, and guitarist of the punk rock band Green Day, which he co-founded with Mike Dirnt.

This man is a genius. His songwriting is brilliant, he's a fantastic singer and guitarist, but most of all he is the best showman I have ever seen. He has a way of holding an audience in the palm of his hand, with a lot of sexuality, a lot of fun and a whole load of talent!

Absolutely Amazing! Especiallly at live performances!

Billie has so much energy and passion, and he's great at interacting and involving the fans!

This list is ridiculous. Billie deserves to be in the top THREE. His lyrics, passion, energy, is timeless. This man has done it ALL live, even performed naked on stage before. His spot number need to be higher. Really, no frontman is able to compete in the same level as Billie, when it comes to the band performing live.

He really deserves 2 be much higher...

Brian Johnson, Bon Scott, Axl Rose, Dave Gilmore, Mark Knopfler, Freddie Mercury are the best and that wasn't in order but seriously come on Brian Johnson has been the singer for ACDC for over 35 years and still going strong surely he deserves a bit of respect

60Chris CornellChris Cornell is an American rock musician and singer-songwriter, best known as the lead vocalist, primary songwriter and rhythm guitarist for Seattle rock band Soundgarden and as former lead vocalist and songwriter for the supergroup Audioslave.

Dude, just listen to Slaves and Bulldozers, or anything by Soundgarden and you will realise that Chris is the greatest frontman ever.

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.

Gotta git chris up the list.. Although I wouldn't pick him for greatest frontman... his singing is easily top 5
