If you’re a dude, there’s definitely a band you wish you could be the lead singer of. The ones where you belt those notes out as high as you can while driving alone in your car. It’s great to play air guitar like Hendrix or Stevie Ray Vaughan, but it’s just a little more rewarding to know that you can hit the high notes like Steve Perry, or rock it like Vince Neil did.
With the bubblegum rock bands that are around these days, it’s hard to relate to the crap their singing about – let alone trying to sing auto-tune!
Unfortunately, we can’t turn back the hands of time, but if one of these bands were ever holding auditions for a lead man to do a reunion tour, you bet your ass we’ll be there faster than you can say “Hey Jude!”
Kurt Cobain – Nirvana
Alright, so we wouldn’t really trade places with him now, but in the early 90′s, when at the peak of his popularity, there isn’t anyone we’d rather be. He basically created the whole grunge rock fad that came during that time, sparking thousands of college kids to rethink what they were really doing in school. Of course, he read into his own beliefs a little too much, but that’s a sad story we don’t want to get into.
