The Best British frontmen (Part 1 of 2)

Pulling the plug on the pre-election heave, we take inspiration from the 100 Greatest Frontmen Poll in Q Magazine. Their verdict? Knuckledragging slack-armed oik Liam Gallagher was number one. Bollocks to that, we say. Here's our first instalment:

20- Jim Kerr, Simple Minds

19- Ricky Wilson, Kaiser Chiefs

18- Jaz Coleman, Killing Joke

17- Paul Smith, Maximo Park

16- Damon Albarn, Blur

15- Paul Weller, The Jam/Style Council

14- Marc Almond, Soft Cell

13- Brett Anderson, Suede

12- Robert Plant, Led Zeppelin

11- John Lydon, Sex Pistols/P.i.L.

Dunno what you've got in store for tomorrow but Robert Plant deserves the TOP FIVE at the very least...!

It was a fucking fix that Liam got that, he had an advert in for his new clobber range.

I read Q only for its reviews, anything else burns my eyes.

Liam Gallagher is a waste of space. I can just about understand a category of people liking Oasis, but him as the best frontmen of ALL TIME is just ridiculous. Of ALL TIME???!!!In the world?

I am so, so with you Stan.
