What a let down!
Alex Kapranos better than Robert Plant...??? Claude, are you feeling alright???

I agree with Jagger at no.1, more or less, but not with Gahan at no.2. It's too much.

Jagger at 1 is a fair call but with Stan, Gahan is an error and Alex mother fucking Kaprnaos!!!

Have you seen FF live?

Lord have mercy on us...

"The Best British frontmen"

Springsteen is American.
Otherwise there'd be room for Iggy Pop, Lou Reed, Jim Morrison and many others.

Gahan is an amazing frontman, so, erm, nyer to the haterz. Sheesh. I'm 34 and I've just used the word haterz. I'm off for a lie down.

Yay to Sean!
Gahan is a proper stage animal. Passionate, spirited, inspired.
Watch Depeche Mode live and tell me ;-)
