Male Greats

Like the great female artists of the long and great Rock era, that same period also had its share of male artists.  And what a cast they were.  Elvis Presley, Bobby Dylan, Paul McCartney, John Lennon, Bruce Springsteen, Elton John, and yes, this list CAN go on and on.  Where bands were concerned, there were plenty of great frontmen that led bands.  Singers like Robert Plant (Led Zeppelin), Steven Tyler (Aerosmith), Mick Jagger (Rolling Stones), Jim Morrison (The Doors), Freddy Mercury (Queen), and Steve Perry (Journey) were essential singers.

There are all kinds of male performers.  The inimitable ones.  The lyrical ones.  The flashy and showy ones.  The punkish ones.  The angry ones.  Singers.  Songwriters.  Singer/Songwriters.

Great performers like Leonard Cohen, Elvis Costello, Dave Lee Roth, Lou Reed, David Bowie, Rod Stewart.

I can’t even think straight, there are so many great male performers and singers.
