My first poll!
I love to watch Ozzy ... not for the music but for his interpretation of a Rock fromtman. I am curious to see your opinions and other suggestions!

No freakin contest. Jager by light years.

Ozzy bother's the hell out of me. He walks around like he is some robotic thing screaming " We love You " 435 times a song. I like the music but I didn't like him as front man.

Showmen huh? I'd have to add David Lee Roth in pre-1984 Van Halen. He was a real showman in those days! I'd also have to add Jim Morrison. He was the show for the Doors. I saw Mick in '89 and Ozzy in '86. Although I liked the Ozzy show better, Mick was the more entertaining front man.

I gotta go, caveat about my limited exposure to both live, with Jagger is more an entertaining, epitome of frontman...

Definitely Morrison, if he were an option.

Well I wanted to put a third option as "others" but somehow that option just disappeared.

Anyway ... I forgot tovote Smile

So I went for poor Ozzy ...... I have put him in the lion's den so it is my responsability to help him out.

I feel sympathy for the man he sticks in the modern show biz thing as I do with my daughter shopping! I always have syphaty for the people who don't fit in.

By the way - and at the cost to destroy my own thread ... a "nice one" ....
- I have seen just now at the video on demand section here the 10/31/80 show and LOVED IT ... is this the show used for the Reckoning album!? The first tune an instrumental is awesome!

Longtime fan of Ozzy here. Tribute with Randy Rhoads is one of my favorite live albums, Randy was amazing too.
Check out the shirt the Oz man is wearing in this clip of Suicide Solution, it is 100% rock and roll with the OZZY emblazoned across his chest.

I don't think any of the acoustic tracks from that show are on Reckoning, though it is primarily composed of songs from that run (Radio City Music Hall) and the Warfield run earlier in the month.

Also, is Mick Jagger really that great? Truman Capote supposedly once said that he was about as sexy as a pissing toad, I always thought that was a funny Mick quote.

No, he is not. Without studio effects, his voice kinda sucks.
He stole all his moves from Tina Turner and James Brown.
Once described as a "rooster on acid".
He was a good frontman in the mid 60's but then got progressively more like a parody of himself. I like watching his coke feuled antics on Gimme Shelter and Ladies and Gents, but now he comes across as an old queenish buffoon.

Yes, Roger the dodger is prime time. Still lays it down.

Um, Cheese... I don't think Mick is good because I find him sexy... is that what you are judging this on?

Tizi... problem fixed. You have to physically press update before you submit post, for every poll option... it's a poorly contructed mechanism.

Agree totally .... the poll is about the "Rockest" frontman and my first option was Ozzy! Nice video.

Koch thanks for the suggestion I will pay mor attention next time with the poll.

I've had the same problem occur Tizi. You can always go back, "edit" your poll, and add more options later... which gives me an idea...
I should set up some poll, and then weeks later add a new, more popular option, then go on about how it lost Twisted Evil Very Happy

Dude, "Queenish bafoon" is fucking hilarious........I was watching that VH1 documentary a few days ago on the guitar player from Pantera that got shot, I think his name was dimebag darrell...ANyways, they were insinuating that the lead singer Phil Anselmo was to blame because he was so influental to his fans(the backstory is that anselmo was kicked out or left and made threats to dimebag and some other [CENSORED] I dont really remmeber and someone, a fan of Anselmos shot dimebag right on stage in front of everyone.).

My point is, the footage they showed of all of the early concerts was completely out of control. Anselmo combined with those furious riffs from dimebag turned those crowds into a furious smashmouthed mob......They were so fucking into it it was incredible looking. Ive never seen anything like that live, so maybe that dude qualifies as the nastiest frontman Ive ever seen.

Jagger by a mile. Daltrey would be next. Ozzie is pathetic. Morrison and his little annoying band sucked.

Howling Wolf
Part front man, part crowd inciter, part holy roller tent revivalist, Wolf would run, jump, get in your face, flop on the floor in appearant seziure, roll his eyes back in his head, all while having to plan his tours so he was near a VA hospital 3 times a week so he could recieve dialysis. A show hardly went be with out a stabbing, shooting or major brawl. Hia entire band, except Hubert Sumlin (a different story), had to carry guns. Finally had to open his own club in Chicago
as no one else would book his riotus act, the only other artist in his league was Little Walter.

I can't beleive none of you have 2nd'ed my nomination of Iggy. Ever seen an of the footage of the Stooges live?? He was a freakin nut!!! Pure energy, total rock and roll animal.

and if he was not such a douche, Axl Rose....

Phil Anselmo doesn't have the longevity though, his voice is shot now. He seems pretty deluded and wacky too judging from interviews.
Sko is right though, they were a popular enough metal band to get big crowds and pits, one of their concerts I saw I counted 7 mosh pits in the crowd.
As far as Jagger, I just think that quote is telling and I like the golden age of Stones, and not much beyond 71.

Hmm, both of these singers are from different ends of the spectrum.


I would throw in Paul Stanley.

Iggy would beat most of these people though.

I also have to throw in Wayne Coyne from the Flaming Lips.

He washes that white suit after each show in a hotel bath tub. That is hardcore. Also he got that idea about the blood from a pic of Miles Davis after he was beaten by police.

Maynard from Tool. This show a fan came onstage and Maynard takes a second to see if he is a threat and does some ninja [CENSORED] on the guy and tackles him. He them puts him in a head choke and continues singing the song to the dude, who is now pretty happy with the situation. Maynard then stradles the guy and kind mocks having [CENSORED] with him...AWESOME

NSFW

Rollins? He was punk for a bit. I love the Onion and the excellent pop culture review arm of the Onion, the AV Club, and they said the funniest thing about Rollins in a recent issue I had picked up in a review.

Some guys I know were in a band that was briefly half famous. They had a mini-tour in California and were invited to stay at Rollins' studio -- which was sort of like a guest house or something. My friend said Rollins drove over one morning in a BMW, woke them up, and said something to the effect of, "I just made $36,000 while you guys were sleeping."

There is a "devil's advocate" argument I have heard bandied about saying that Black Flag would have been better off without Rollins.

I liked them better with Keith Morris (later formed Circle Jerks) and Dez Cadena (think that was his name) Circle Jerks were awesome, and funny.

hey dogstarz,

This just dawned on me as I was scrolling through, but...

(fwiw, Miles was "loitering" on the street in front of his own gig, was told to move along, gave [CENSORED] to the cop, got clubbed in the head and was arrested, and a small media circus ensued as he was released)

have to do with Wayne Coyne?

Not saying the guy's not a fine frontman, but I'm missing the connection here (apart from the fact that they both, y'know, have blood on them). Seems like a rather peculiar homage. Do the FL have a song about this or something?
