The Contenders: Page 5

81 Angus Young Angus Young Angus McKinnon Young is an Australian guitarist of Scottish origin, best known as the co-founder, lead guitarist, songwriter and sole constant member of the Australian hard rock band AC/DC. When performing live he does his own version of Chuck Berry's "duck walk" and has also spun on his side while more.

Although he doesn't sing, Angus is practically the man up front and the image of AC/DC.

Best frontmen does not have to mean best singer.

Why is he on the list he's the best guitarist in the world

He's not the frontman, Bon Scott & Brian Johnson are.

83 Peter Gabriel Peter Gabriel Peter Brian Gabriel is an English singer-songwriter, musician and humanitarian activist who rose to fame as the original lead singer and flautist of the progressive rock band Genesis.

Eccentricity incarnate. I would even go as far as to say that he is the most flamboyant front man in history.

Are you mad, how is Gabriel 129?!?!?!?
As well as having a spectacular voice, whilst lead of Genesis he would completely own live performances with his crazy costumes, stories and 'dancing'. Absolutely one of the all time best

85 Brian Johnson (AC/DC) Brian Johnson (AC/DC) Brian Johnson is an English singer and songwriter. Since 1980, he is the lead singer of the Australian rock band AC/DC, with whom he was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2003. As of April 2016, Johnson is not participating in the remainder of the Rock or Bust World Tour due to hearing more.

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

Cut Brian some slack. He had some huge shoes to fill in replacing bon Scott, the greatest frontman of all time, and for the past 37 years he's done an amazing job with the band. He sings on back in black, the 2nd best selling album of all time

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.

maynard could easily be in the top spot. he has one of the greatest voices the world has ever heard, if not THE greatest.

the way he moves on stage, really gets you in the mood. and a haunting voice - gouchesweat

Why is he so low he should be in top 5 at least has so many vocal styles top 5 not in order,Maynard James Keenan,Serj Tankian,Josh Homme,Chris Cornell,Robert Plant
