1)Jon Bon Jovi - 45 yrs. old and runs the show like he's 25. 2.5 hrs of energy everytime he plays. stands the test of time. great vocals.. Understands how to keep his fans and get new ones. Worldwide star
2)Steven Tyler - Born to be a rock front man. Also stands the test of time. great vocals... Great show everytime
3)David Lee Roth - probably the best during his time with VH. Best showman ever... so good Eddie couldn't deal. Only problem is he doesn't stand the test of time like JBJ or Tyler.
4)Robert Plant - laid the groundwork for what a frontman and a rock star should be. One of the greatest bands of all time.
5)Bono - Worldwide star... great show everytime.
6)Mick Jagger
7)Ozzie - Sabbath! Crazy Mo fo Rock star.
8)Elvis - wasn't around during his time... but you can't leave him off your list. Most recognizable name in music... origininator
9)Sammy Hagar - Great vocals... great show everytime.
10)Roger Daltrey

Has anybody forgotten about Freddie Mercury? The most incredible and bravest man of rock? I wonder what would have become of him if he was still alive today. God, he was a legend!

So, I'm basing my list on bands I've seen live myself. So that's why there's no Mercury or Lee Rooth etc.

1) Jon Bon Jovi (Bon Jovi)- no explanation needed, he's just THE frontman.

2) Joey Tempest (Europe)- still has a great voice and knows how to work the crowd!:D And I have gotten a thumbs up from him during a concert so :) He's really good at interacting too.

3) Robert Pettersson (Takida)- I wanted to put him first but because of the fact that he fronts a fairly unknown band and that they don't play for 10 000+ crowds, he got third. Truly great frontman, loves to jokearound, perfect at interacting and getting the crowd pumped up.

4) Alice Cooper (Alice Cooper)- He's the man :-P The best ever at his "thing", that's why he's in the top 4.

5) Anders Fridén (In Flames)- He got 50.000+ people jumping, headbaning and screaming their lungs of. And at this occation his band where the opening act for Iron Maiden, it says it all.

6) Tobias Sammet (Edguy)- Funniest frontman around!:D Loves to joke and knows how to work the crowd.

7) Chris Cornell (Audioslave)- his voice is just amazing!!! Better live than on record. Doesn't say much but he's a joy to watch live.

8) Chad Kroeger (Nickelback)- really good at interacting, great voice, loves to tell stories but he's working the crowd too good sometimes...

9) Till Lindemann (Rammstein)- he doesn't do much, but everyone who's been to a Rammstein concert knows, he's just Till.

10) James Heitfield/Bruce Dickinsson (Metallica/Iron Maiden)- Both are great frontmans and I couldn't decide on which one's the better :-P

Tom Petty was incredible at the Santa Barbara Bowl last year. Low key show compared to BJ but very witty, perfect timing and great, great music.
