    Default DLR #21 in Gibsons.com Top 50 Frontmen

    With their votes, the Gibson.com readers crowned Freddie Mercury the Queen of all Frontmen. While many of the readers’ choices are reflected in the overall list, a few didn’t make the cut – Green Day’s Billie Joe Armstrong, Metallica’s James Hetfield, KISS’s Paul Stanley and the late, great Ronnie James Dio.

    And at least one choice caught the Gibson.com editorial staff off-guard. Who knew that the readers had this much love for Jim Kerr of Simple Minds? You certainly took his advice and didn’t forget about him.

    1. Freddie Mercury (Queen)

    2. Bruce Dickinson (Iron Maiden)

    3. Marc Bolan (T. Rex)

    4. Bon Scott (AC/DC)

    5. Robert Plant (Led Zeppelin)

    6. Brian Johnson (AC/DC)

    7. Mick Jagger (The Rolling Stones)

    8. Bono (U2)

    9. Robin Zander (Cheap Trick)

    10. Elvis Presley

    11. Jim Kerr (Simple Minds)

    12. Jim Morrison (The Doors)

    13. Paul Stanley (KISS)

    14. Ronnie Van Zant (Lynyrd Skynyrd)

    15. Bruce Springsteen

    16. Axl Rose (Guns N’ Roses)

    17. Angus Young (AC/DC)

    18. Ronnie James Dio (Rainbow, Heaven and Hell)

    19. Jimi Hendrix

    20. Roger Daltrey (The Who)

    21. David Lee Roth (Van Halen)

    22. Steven Tyler (Aerosmith)

    23. James Hetfield (Metallica)

    24. Ozzy Osbourne (Black Sabbath)

    25. Billie Joe Armstrong (Green Day)
    "I could call it anything, but the only word I can think of is Brown. It's just a warm sound. Warm, big, majestic" - Eddie Van Halen on his Tone

    "Van Halen is definitely a ladies band, and I´ve got the Polaroids to prove it". - David Lee Roth

    WOLFGANG did the IMPOSSIBLE, he brought back VAN HALEN, DEAL WITH IT.

    This survey is crap. What -- did they poll with a sample size of 6 people?

    Of all the bad lists we see around here that could be the all-time worst. That Top 10 is laughable.
    .

    .
    VH with Dave ('78-'84) - The best years....the "real" VH.
    VH with Sam ('86-'96) - Incredible era....."We have renamed this town 'New Halen!'.
    VH with Gary ('98) - Fucking disaster. WTF was that??
    VH with Wolf/Dave ('12-'15) - Amazing comeback. Smokin' album and tours.

    At least Freddie Mercury isn't an absurd choice for #1. That one has at least some sense behind it, even if I wouldn't personally put him at the top.
    Van Halen will rock your face off!

    Am I reading this right??? A stupid pole with no mention of Kurt Cobain...

    Well, fuck me...

    Mike Patton should be on there somewhere.
    If you have nothing nice to say about Eddie Van Halen, you're at the right website. - Me (A few years ago)

    "People take Van Halen much more seriously than we do" - David Lee Roth (1980's)

    "I don't sit on the end of your bed while you're trying to make a living" - David Lee Roth (1988)

    "For some reason people love to complain about everything. The internet has made it easy for people to do that. Shut the fuck up and get a life, or show me how good you can do it."- Edward Van Halen

    "A lot of people ask me which Van Halen singer was better. You can't compare them. It's like asking which guitarist is better. Nobody is better than anybody. Every player is their own person."-Edward Van Halen

    "I do like Eddie Van Halen as a player. He gets it right quite often." -Paul McCartney

    They should have put that list back out for a re-vote.
    Taylor Swift is nice to look at. Adele can sing.

    Emperor Brett - "I can't believe you guys are analyzing song-by-song Van Halen III? What next, analyzing the script of Stroker Ace looking for some shred of Citizen Kane?"

    David Lee Roth did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it!

    Preferred pronouns: he/him/his

    Ok, I'll go there. If Billie F'n Joe is on this piece of shit list then Anthony Kiedis should be there far ahead of him. Why not just put the frontman to the Offspring on there as well!!

    Where's Eddie Vedder??

    I've never gave a shit about Kurt Cobain or Nirvana.

    Pearl Jam are relevant and way cool across the globe.

    Also...Diamond Dave should be 1. At least top 5 in this gay poll.

    Elvis at #10? Ha! Should be #1. No one has ever captivated an audience like The King.
