    Ian McCulloch (Bunnymen) is an outstanding front manů.and has the ego to go with it

    Freddie for me is in a league of his own as a front man, great voice, charismatic and has the crowd in the palm of his hand, others have it or parts of it but no one to that extent

    Brilliant but his conversion to trumpism is somewhat saddening

    His Sex Pistol days were long behind him since then.

    Hard to compare them , different times . Morrison was always wasted , doing crazy **** on stage and didnt give a **** . Freddy was a total professional , took his craft seriously and did gigs in massive arenas and stadiums . Morrison was dead before he'd hit his peak , Freddy had hit the top before he died .
    Freddy was probably better all round but i prefer Jims music

    That's a bit if a myth re Morrison. The Doors did 100's of shows with zero drunken crazy sh$t.

    Not one for the super cool gang but Brandon Flowers has to be one of the best front men of the modern era.
    Every gimmick hungry yob,
    Digging gold from rock and roll
    Grabs the mic to tell us,
    He'll die before he's sold.

    Siouxsie Siuox has to be in with a shout as best front person. PJ Harvey is up there as well.

    Special shout for Terry Hall who just used to stand still while everyone else acted like a frontman.
