The Five Greatest Frontmen of all Time, according to: Me.

Ok so my boyfriend was watching me write the last post and we started talking about the previous list - while we're watching Queen at Wembley (fucking epic concert, damn it!) - and bingo, when we saw Fred come in the stage, it dawned on us: while the greatest bands come from the UK... not all frontmen do. Bingo, another post. Sorry, I couldn't leave it for later...

Let the arguments begin.

Freddie Mercury is the greatest frontman of all time. Period. No, I don't want to hear any arguments that try to take this man down. He is and will always be the greatest. He controlled the audience like no other. He was larger than life. He rocked your balls out. All hail Freddie.

Now... so first place is his. But... what about the other four greatest frontman of all time? Who would I choose? It took 15 minutes. I had them all in my head. Join in the fun and write down yours. Here are mine:

1) Freddie Mercury. You bow down everytime you hear his name, dammit!

2) Mick Jagger. This man is the original Energizer Bunny.

3) Bono. He sings and saves the world. Try to Trump that one.

4) Jim Morrison. I honestly think that if Sex had a smell, it would smell like Jim.

5) David Lee Roth. Second in command of being larger than life. Mid-air splits? Yes.

So those are mine. You are totally entitled to your list, but if Mercury isn't on your list, there might be help for you. Call your doctor today.

If it's a matter of how well they captivate an audience and have their way with them (and sheer stopping power), I'll go with the usual suspects:

- Prince: Ever seen 80K people dance their ass off in unison?

- Michael Jackson: People rolling out on stretchers minutes into the first song

- Bjork: Simply hypnotic.

- Frank Sinatra: Is it really necessary to explain?

- Axl Rose: All of Madison Square Garden a giant mosh pit.
