View Full Version : Top Ten Rock Front Men

I remember hearing Chris Cornell's list and on it was Ann Wilson of Heart and exotix and I were sorta chatting this.

My definition of "front man"/"Front woman" means you have to have: good voice, stage presence, and sex appeal. My list excludes the virtuosos like Hendrix or dual leads like the Beatles to make it easier


1. Robert "golden god" Plant...Super cereal he's The Man, he's so much the man I don't even have to say what band he's in
2. Ann Wilson of Heart
3. Chris Cornell Soundgarden/Audioslave
4. Jim Morrison (I considered him as #2 but sometimes he didn't show up)
5. Axl Rose (hateful mutherfucker but good front man)
6. Eddie Vedder (I was in middle and high school during the 90s)
7. Jerry Garcia (controversial since he's not sexy, but he's 100% cool)
8. Zach de la Rocha of Rage Against the Machine
9. Chris Robinson of the Black Crowes
10. TIE: Ozzy and Ronny James Dio

Honorable mention goes to Jack Black of Tenacious D


** When I was a good Catholic girl going to Catholic school, surrounded by rap culture in Detroit, there was this one long hair (aside from Mr. Freeze) at my high school named Alexei. One day I was in the library and so was he (punishment) and he wrote on my hand:

Your head is humming and it won't go in case you don't know, the piper's calling you to join him.

I thought this was satanic and got all freaked out. But then a week later we were hanging out and he gave me a CD of good music. I went over his house and we watched The Song Remains the Same and I expanded my mind for the first time.

That started me on my love of Rock and rock knowledge. I have the most dog eared copy of Hammer of the Gods in the world.

1. Robert Plant
2. Johnny Rotten
3. Jim Morrison
4. Steven Perry
5. Axl Rose
6. James Hetfield
7. Vince Neil
8. Kurt Cobain
9. Bon Scott
10. Ozzy Osborne


Front men only. Not necessarily my favorites. Vince Neil is a POS, but he's a good front man for Motley.

Chris Cornell is the only guy I've seen on this thread so far who would make my top ten.

Probably, I haven't thought about it much yet.
