    "Best" I guess would be Jagger, Morrison, Mercury, Ozzy and Plant in some order.

    My personal favorites (in order)

    1. Bon Scott
    2. Ray Gillen
    3. Roger Daltrey
    4. Joe Lynn Turner
    5. David Lee Roth

    Gary Moore
    David St. Hubbins
    G. G. Allin
    Billie Joe Armstrong


    Nah...

    too many to count really....

    Elvis is really a solo but youd have to count the 50s rockers....Vincent, Cochran etc

    in the classic rock era Bowie, Jagger, Daltrey, Plant, Mercury

    followed by Rod the Mod, Eric Burdon, Hendrix, Van Morrison, Jim Morrison, Ray Davies, Springsteen, Iggy Pop, Bolan, Prince, Tyler, Elton John, some of the punk brigade - Hynde, Bono, Johnny Rotten, Joe Strummer

    followed by Marriott Phil Lynott, Rose, Cobain, Mustaine

    not sure about Lou Reed Billy Joel or Joey Ramone

    dont think Gene Clark or Keith Relf were really commanding front men

    +1 on Chris, not so much on Eddie.

    I'll be at the 2/15 Soundgarden show in LA. My level of anticipation is off the charts having not seen them together in 15 years!

    LOL !!..are you people kidding me with Jagger...I mean kidding me !!...the guy can't even interpret his own songs that HE recorded because he is too interested in acting like an ass on stage...none of the songs sung live sound anything like the original b/c it has to be all about him and his stupid "chicken act" moves....

    Can't argue with the top choices, but having seen the live a few times - Ian Astbury has to be in the discussion.

    I'd pick Mick, Plant and Ozzy as my top three . . .
