    Big fan of Chris Cornell. Also like Maynard from Tool, A Perfect Circle, etc. Phil Anselmo is really good

    Of course McCartney/Lennon, but I never could say one stood out while on stage so I didn't put them in. I'll throw out a couple more not mentioned.

    -Geddy Lee, just love the voice and obviously Rush is an acquired taste but easily one of my top 5 favorite bands

    -Anthony Kiedis, great voice for one of the best of the 90's bands and still kicking a$$ today

    -Sting, when he was with The Police

    -Roger Daltrey, don't think I saw his name somehow

    -Meatloaf, now I only am a fan of BOOH 1, but such heart he put into singing

    Waters/Gilmour (hard to pick one over the other, like the Lennon/McCartney debate)



    Maybe not A-list front men but need honorable mention

    Steven Tyler

    Alice Cooper

    Ronnie Van Zant

    Paul Rodgers

    Gavin Rossdale

    Kurt Cobain

    Michael Stipe

    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

    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!
    Congrats on making SBIII's mother****er list!
