Well what do you think is a better term other than frontman?

Ah, but there are loads of good lead singers who are not good frontmen. What happens then?

PS: I'm not going to bother to make a list, but I do feel Freddie Mercury belongs on every list. Honestly, if you've never seen footage of the man performing, YouTube up a few live Queen shows.

I'm not sure! (he said, as he lowered his Tim Horton's cup featuring charismatic snowpersons).

It's actually a very good question. There is a difference between someone who has a flair for the dramatic, like Bono or Freddie Mercury, and singers who are perhaps more introverted, but equally moving. Thom Yorke maybe fits the bill there, for example.

Getting back to Freddie Mercury, he was simply the best. So much passion and heart. I only have one Queen album, along with an ancient concert video on VHS...I really should listen to more. But, you only need a sampling of his work to realize that he was truly something special.
