Top 100 rock vocalists : 4 Freddie Mercury

4.  Freddie Mercury (Queen)

Now I class Queen as a rock band, I don’t care what anyone else thinks.  They are.  Fact.  Freddie Mercury was an ideal lead singer.  He had charisma, personality; he could play, sing and captivate his audience.  He was recently voted the ultimate lead singer.  He doesn’t quite win this countdown but a top 5 spot  is most certainly worthwhile.
