Axl Rose Voted Greatest Leader Singer
Axl Rose has been voted the greatest lead singer of all time. The Guns N’ Roses front-man topped the survey carried out by website Musicradar.com, beating off competition from the likes of late Queen star Freddie Mercury and veteran Led Zeppelin rocker Robert Plant, who were placed second and third placed respectively.
The website commented: “Think back to the late 1980s. Axl Rose: dangerous, lean, angry, confrontational, controversial.”
Also featured in the poll were Ronnie James Dio, the Black Sabbath star who passed away earlier this year, and late Beatles legend John Lennon, who rounded out the top five.
