Rock's Ugliest Frontmen
By counterfieter at 13:20
Some bands get by on good looks and talent, others just have to grit it out and hope the wind changes...
Easy ladies! It's Leslie West from the aptly named Mountain, never mind Whole Lotta of Rosie, what about Whole Lotta of Hans Christian Andersen....
Be good and don't go to jail, otherwise you may have to bunk up with this beauty, his name will be D. Boon (from punk funk legends The Minutemen) and your new name will be Candy.....
Is it a swooping pterodactyl? A ravenous velociraptor? No its Geddy Lee from Rush...
What about the voice of Geddy Lee
How did it get so high?
I wonder if he speaks like an ordinary guy?
(I know him and he does!)
from the Pavement song "Stereo"
Biff from metal band Saxon actually looks like a Saxon after a particularly vicious going over from a Norman lord, "out of my path varlet!". In that get up Robin Hood would surely have vetoed his joining the gang.
If the warts don't get you going how about the Nazi cap? What no takers? Having a warty Nazi fetish must be pretty rare but don't worry I'm sure he still gets plenty of "jailbait".
Once Mark Hollis' career with Talk Talk faded he found work as an extra in "Shameless" playing a drunk junkie with tourettes.
Ok so technically John Bonham was not a frontman but I am trying to get to ten pictures OK? Whatever he more than earns his place with this striking combination of Long Distance Clara, a Zodiac Bear and a fly fisherman.
Dez from Black Flag. I don't know whats worse, the blood or the face like a gerbil post fun with Richard Gear.
Often considered the "thinking woman's crumpet", I think of him as the "thinking man's complete bender".
What a sorry excuse for a band look! Like the cast of "Glengarry Glen Ross". These guys are here for the ugliness of their cold cold souls. They once sued an eagle sanctuary for having the website "eagles.com", they lost and now have to settle for "eaglesband.com"...sad really.
Special bonus freak!!!
Punk madman G.G. Allin distinguished himself by covering himself in his own shit, vomiting on stage and waving his unpleasant appendage about much to the audiences disinterest. The phrase "trying to hard" springs to mind, as does "ugly troll". Still about 100 times more credible than The Eagles or Sting mind you.
