The majority of his stuff was written by Jim Steinman, who is doing theatre now.

If you have heard of him then you know there is no argument, hands down, MOST dramatic metal singer ever......


KING DIAMOND

There is NO ONE more dramatic...No one.

Freddy Mercury, RIP

If overly dramatic stage antics or performence is part of the criteria, then there's not a singer alive or dead that could come anywhere close to GG Allins shows.

Bruce Dickinson.

He's actually an airline pilot now.

Really.

I wonder what in-flight music is on the music system on his flights?
CJ




Wow.

I grew up with Maiden, saw them 3 or 4 times, etc.

Bruce Dickinson an airline pilot?

Yep

"Dickinson has long been the renaissance man of rock - not content with selling 50 million albums, he wrote two novels and represented his country with fencing swords. Now he is a commercial pilot, working as a first officer for a new British charter airline called Astreus: hops to Portugal or the Greek islands in the summer, ski trips in the winter. He had a private pilot's licence for years, which is not so unusual among the wealthy and famous, but what is he doing flying these monsters? The answer is that it's even more of a rush..."

Wow, read the link, he seems like a very down-to-earth human being. Someone to go have a beer with (not before a flight though )

MM & AC & KISS for the gay Showiness

Axel Rose is probably the biggest prima donna for the genre

I can't believe it took this long for someone to mention KISS. Nobody in the history of metal or Rock and Roll does a stage show like theirs. You want theatrics? GENE SIMMONS! Done! Shut up fools!

David Surkamp from Pavlov's Dog, a band popular in the 70s. Vocals so high, dogs would howl. Pomp-rock histrionics of the highest (or lowest) order.

Did somebody say "Barbah o Debil"? From the most gifted performer in the world, Buh-weet?

Alice Cooper was my first thought as well. Flamboyant, and controversial (at the time)
