Who is the best rock’nroll Frontman?

You know who I’m talking about, he or

she is the one that sets the stage on

FIRE in the group. So who is your

favorite rock Frontman? Let us know
why, if you want, 
or you can even rank

your top 10 or more.

(Bands who don’t have a dedicated

frontman, such as the Beatles, probably

don’t qualify)

D C Cooper  -  Royal Hunt (1994-98, 2011-present)

 

I just discovered this band and singer recently, and I have to say, his voice completely blew me away! He can sing with both power and restraint, has a range that just won't quit (very much like Geoff Tate), beautiful tone and timbre, great phrasing and breath control, all coming from the diaphragm. He may be the best "unknown" singer in rock or metal, though I'm sure there are a lot of metal-heads who do know of him. The band is phenomenal, too. All of them are great musicians.

It's a hard choice, since every generation has so many standouts. So here's mine for the genre of music I enjoy listening.

1. Jim Morrison - The Doors.

2. Bruce Dickinson - Iron Maiden.

3. Ronnie James Dio - Elf, Rainbow, Black Sabbath and Dio.

4. Geoff Tate - Queensryche and Operation Mindcrime.

5. Eddie Vedder- Pearl Jam

Jim Morrison was the MAN! Great number 1 OscarE!

Paul Rodgers  -  Free, Bad Company

 

Great set of pipes, this one. Led Zep and Deep Purple both tried to recruit him, however, their second choices turned out pretty good!  LOL!
