|Lennon and McCartney included on Greatest Frontmen list|
[Posted by Dave Haber on Wednesday, 03/31/10 11:46 am] [Full Blog] [Tweet] [Facebook]
Q Magazine's The 100 Greatest Frontmen issue hits the shelves today, with 36 pages of exclusive new interviews, pictures, and essays from the 100 greatest singers, showmen, and performers that have defined the world of music.
John Lennon and Paul McCartney, "Rock's ultimate double act," have been chosen by Q readers as two of the 100 greatest frontmen. Though Lennon and McCartney are not your traditional egotistical rock stars, their masterful partnership "ushered in an era where musicians controlled their own destinies."
Housed in a special slipcase cover, swaggering Mancunian Liam Gallagher tops the countdown, voted for by readers of Q Magazine and users of QtheMusic.com. In the issue Kasabian's Tom Meighan talks about his experiences with the ultimate rock and roll star, "He doesn't come offstage and have a fucking back rub while he's cuddling his pet poodle. The attitude stays."
Elsewhere in the list Bono offers up his advice on being a frontman, Damon Albarn reminisces on the finest moments from his multiband resume, and Matt Bellamy shares his experiences at the helm of the Muse ship. Expect to see pioneers such as Morrissey, Ian Dury, and Kurt Cobain too.
