Who's the frontman of this band?

Joe Lynn Turner, though he was just a hired gun there (iirc). Malmsteen was the figure of the band though.

Was Jeff Scott Soto also the frontman? How 'bout Boals, Edman, Vescera, Levén, Lande, White and Owens? (Is it scary that I've memorized damn near every one of Malmsteen's band 'mates'?)

Yes, all of them were frontmen of Yngwie's band at some point. Some of those names just were damn forgettable frontmen, whereas somebody like Bonnet was one of the more memorable frontmen of the band.

I think that you are considering 'frontman' as what I consider 'figure'.

Maybe if Freddie had those awesome sideburns he'd be ahead?

The list is good, but I think that Mercury and Jackson are top 3.

Mercury already IS top 3, he always will be.

Jackson doesnt beat Jagger or Turner, imo...

I really can't see Brown and Elvis above Jackson and Freddie.
When I think in frontman/showman, MJ and Freddie come fast in my mind.

Imo:

1. MJ/Freddie
2. Freddie/Mj
3. Elvis
4. Brown
5. Jagger

The rest of the list is very good ... Vedder deserve a spot in the top 15.
Good job, btw!

I see Freddie at 3. Brown revolutionized the role of the rock frontman and Elvis did just as much to the extent that no else in history has managed to. The two of them define rock frontmen.

Freddie was also incredible, but simply not as good at those two. And I would welcome MJ at 4.

Did you used to be Liar on the old forum?

Brown and Elvis are interchangeable as the top 2, and Merc is #3. That's been set in stone.

Cause I remember having this exact same argument with him on this topic (Merc vs. Brown).

Mercury is one of the 3 greatest frontmen in rock. That's hardly an injustice.
