News : Alice Ranked As One Of NME's "Best Heavy Metal Frontmen."
The 10 Best Heavy Metal Frontmen
By Katie Parsons
These Top 10 metal lists are getting harder and harder. How can you possibly pick just a handful of rocking gentlemen to represent the best that metal has on offer? Yes, there are also frontwomen, and most definitely there are also over 100 great chaps that aren’t on this list. Cutting it down was a tough one. The criteria? Amazing performers, distinctive voice, memorable style and working with a ‘metal’ band (not hard rock, grunge, punk or hardcore). RIP Ronnie James Dio.
10. Alice Cooper (Alice Cooper)
Horror rocker, freaky theatrical metal king, fashion icon (kinda) and… Wayne’s World actor! Go Coop! He’s 63 years old and still rocks like a hurricane. He’s survived and won over multiple rock genres and still sounds amazing. Legend.
