To me, frontman means someone who only sang, not sang and played an instrument.

Joey Ramone
Johnny Rotten
Iggy Pop

Glad to see lots of people appreciate Iggy.

Hard one because different guys are great for different reasons.

For showmanship I would say
David Lee Roth. super fun, although he used to get so drunk he forget lyrics
Axl. Very dynamic performer during the GNR hey day, although not sure about now
Alice Cooper. He gave us the carnival freak show in the form of a concert; god bless his soul

For pure vocal skills

Steve Perry. Brilliant vocals, both live and in studio
Rob Halford. His four octave range is not just a studio thing, he belts it out live as good as anyone
Sebastian Bach. That guy can really howl. Great voice

Frontmen :
Ian Svenonius (Nation Of Ulysses, The Make Up, Weird War, Chain and the Gang)
Kurt Cobain
James Chance (the Contortions, James White and the Blacks)

Frontwomen :
Kim Gordon (Sonic Youth)
Lydia Lunch (Teenage Jesus and the Jerks)
Kathleen Hanna (Bikini Kill)

I dislike the androcentrism of this question.

For vocal skills:

Layne Staley (though William Duvall is brilliant)-Alice in Chains
Jesse Hasek-10 Years
Pete Loeffler-Chevelle

For awesome live performances:

Layne Staley-Alice in Chains
Jon Foreman-Switchfoot
Chino Moreno-Deftones

EDIT: had to change it to Chino, I saw Deftones a few weeks ago and was absolutely blown away, he was like a wind-up toy.

Bruce Dickinson (He's over 60 and he can still climb up scaffolding and hit the high notes. Whilst Britney Spears is over 20 and can't do that and struggles to proform (if you can call it proforming live)

Robert Plant (listen to Stairway and you'll see what it is about him. He's indescribable)

Least but not least

Chuck Billy (Testament, first time I've ever seen a air micstand in my life. Not just a good frontman, but gone through alot and a nice guy.)

Robert Plant can't sing his own songs anymore. He can't hit the high notes.

Haven't heard him recently but is he a Billy Joel?

Billy Joel - Accepts that he can no longer hit those notes and sings them the best he can now.

Well, when they were going to do their reunion thing, Plant needed all the songs to be dropped by 6 or 7 semitones just to be able to hit them.

The most important point in yoga for a beginner is to breathe correctly during the postures. In yoga you breathe in nyc asian escort (http://www.nycescortsasian.com) and nyc asian escorts (http://www.nycescortsasian.com) out through your nose in order to allow yourself to breathe more deeply. Breathing helps you get relaxed and it also helps you move more deeply into the poses. If you feel an area of nyc escort (http://www.nycescortsasian.com) tension in your body, you can direct your breathe to that spot to help it release. If, at any time during a pose, you find that you cannot breathe deeply, either ease up or come nyc escorts (http://www.nycescortsasian.com) out of the pose.

While I have at least 10 favourite vocalists across different genres, from prog rock to thrash metal, I can make do with 3.

Matt Bellamy from Muse
Bruce Dickinson from Iron Maiden
Paul Rodgers from Free and Bad Company

I'm sad to see Paul Rodgers has so little mentions.

+ 1 For Bellamy. When he's on stage he's the ultimate rock star. Whether you're pushed up against the rails or at the back of the stadium you can't help but watch this guy the entire time.

My personal Favorites Are:
1 - Axl Rose
2 - Kurt Cobain
3 - Steven Tyler - Mick Jagger

I don't know which one to choose but I think It' Steven Tyler because I've liked Aerosmith for so long!

Mick Jagger definetely belongs up there and even at his age , he's still rocking like he did in his heydays.
