for a monthly Facebook contest at a little local spot. The subject was “Who is the greatest lead vocalist/frontman of all time and why” in 150 words or less.
Bragging rights to who guesses the subject first. We spent the cash already.
“I won’t be a rock star. I will be a legend.” More prophetic words were never spoken. As an entertainer, he was flamboyant, decadent, outlandish, ridiculous, ironic, vivacious and stone-cold bombastic. As a vocalist, he was impressive with over a 4 octave range and no formal training. He wrote 10 out of 17 of his band’s greatest hits. To prove he was well rounded, as a musician he mastered the piano as well as guitar. The man, the myth, the legend…???
I really wish we would come across more of these challenges to offset our beer budget.
