Most Boring/Least Charismatic Frontmen/Singers on Stage in Rock MusicEven though I like most of these bands their frontmen don't have much of a stage presence or charisma to them. Even thought stage antics are really not what music's about, it's cool to see the bands frontman get really into the show and act out. I tried to keep my entries (not all) to bands I have personally seen. I understand some of my picks may have just had an off night.
The Top Ten
I was dragged to his concert by my girlfriend at the time. He is so boring. The funny thing is his fans. They SO overreact to anything he does. Anytime he even barely moves the crowd went wild. Kinda sad and lame at the same time. He did seem more into the music at his shows when he was with the Smiths though. - THC13
One of my favorite bands. I have personally never seen them live. I have seen recorded performances by them and Nick Blinko just stands there with his head down the whole time. He does suffer from schizophrenia so maybe he has a lot of anxiety up on stage? - THC13
The cool laid back persona thing doesn't work for me. I find it boring. - THC13
I like Smashing Pumpkins...recorded. They sounded god awful live (at least the show I saw was). Billy was a very boring frontman. - THC13
I saw them with the same ex girlfriend that dragged me to see Morrissey but I had a lot more interest in The Cure. I really like their Boys Don't Cry and Seventeen Seconds albums. Unfortunately they didn't play anything off those albums at the show. Robert Smith was very boring. - THC13
One of my favorite bands ever but Gilmour is boring on stage. I think Waters has more charisma then Gilmour.Their shows (sound, lighting,projections)in general seemed fun though.
I like Agent Orange but Mike Palm is another boring punk frontman. Just stands there. The pit was still wild for "Bloodstains" though. - THC13
Sound amazing live but Frank is pretty boring to watch. Still a great show. I mean come on, it's the Pixies right? - THC13
Even though they are one of the best sounding live bands I've ever seen, Joey was a boring punk frontman. He just takes his "singing stance" and occasionally pumps his fist in the air. Still had a lot of fun at their shows. Biggest mosh pit I've ever been in. - THC13
Not surprised by this one yeah he probably was more energetic when he was younger.
The reason I have him on the list is because for being a metal singer who doesn't play an instrument he kinda sucks on stage. He just paced back and forward on the stage like a old decrypted zombie on meth. I'm sure he was better in his younger years.
