    Wow, Jim Morrison and his 5 year career vs. Steven Tyler and his 50 year career. I'm surprised at the early results!

    Early death helps cement a legacy. I was surprised Cobain wasnt in here for that reason.

    Robert Plant vs. Geddy Lee
    Roger Daltrey vs. Ozzy Osbourne

    Paul McCartney vs. Sting
    Steven Tyler vs. Jim Morrison

    Mick Jagger vs. Steve Perry
    John Lennon vs. Bon Scott

    Freddie Mercury vs. Bono
    David Lee Roth vs. Jimi Hendrix

    Honestly, I think some people voted ln favorites and genre familiarity...not objectively on the best frontman. I am very surprised and confused by some results of the first round...here are my picks and where they are different.

    Robert Plant vs. Peter Gabriel - Golden God of course
    Geddy Lee vs. Ray Davies - Yeah it's Rush
    Roger Daltrey vs. David Bowie - I don't think it's fair to call solo artists frontmen
    Ozzy Osbourne vs. Bruce Springsteen - Springsteen objectively, for me.

    Paul McCartney vs. Ian Gillan - a Beatle over the long time frontman of Deep Purple? As a musician sure as a front man though....???
    Sting vs. James Hetfield - Honestly a toss-up for me
    Steven Tyler vs. Don Henley - Drummers aren't really frontmen
    Jim Morrison vs. Sammy Hagar - Definitely Sammy. He does a lot more than scream and curse on stage

    Mick Jagger vs. Phil Collins - No contest
    Ronnie James Dio vs. Steve Perry - Toss-up? Dio kicks ass though
    John Lennon vs. Brad Delp - Brad Delp lost because he was put up against a Beatle. See McCartney vs Gillan....
    Bon Scott vs. Paul Rodgers - Bon Scott I think,

    Freddie Mercury vs. Lou Gramm - No question
    Axl Rose vs. Bono - I'm not a huge U2 fan but I think this depends on your interpretation of "frontman"
    David Lee Roth vs. Robin Zander - This is a Van Halen forum
    Jimi Hendrix vs. Brian Johnson - I don't think Jimi counts as a frontman.... he's not really fronting a band he is the band to me.

    Daltrey losing to Ozzy is worse.

    Layne Staley and Chris Cornell are far superior frontmen and singers from that era.
