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.

Sir, the contents of my mouth just blew all over my keyboard, desk, and part of my monitor. For the record, it was slightly chewed Keebler cookies and coffee slurry.

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.

not necessarily my favorite singers, but they are depending on what day it is, but in their prime all of them where in a league of them all.
