AXL = G.O.A.T. ???

The readers of have voted Guns n' Roses frontman Axl Rose the greatest lead singer of all time, over such icons as Freddie Mercury, Robert Plant, Ronnie James Dio, John Lennon and Bruce Dickinson. says, "Forget the caricature of recent years and think back to the late 1980s -- he was dangerous, lean, angry, confrontational and controversial. The hot-headed, horny ginger stepchild of Steven Tyler and Robert Plant, a born rock star who made being fashionably late a lifestyle choice and started riots in the process."

Other singers to make the Top 30 are Paul McCartney, Jim Morrison, Mick Jagger, Roger Daltrey, Geddy Lee and Stevie Nicks. --Sal Cirrincione
