W. Axl Rose 1

Well, this list is pitifully short. Still, this megalomaniac should not be #1.

W. Axl Rose 5

Axel Rose was the greatest rock frontman since Jim Morrison: an antisocial, drunken, white-trash loser with a hair-trigger temper who was lucky to hook-up with a group of drug-addled but highly talented musicians who never would have achieved commerical success on their own.  Axel's antics got ever stranger and more extreme (posing in a straightjacket and swimming with dolphins in music videos, punching out journalists, fighting cops, walking offstage in Montreal and starting a massive riot, promoting Charles Manson...) until he he'd completely aliented his bandmates and most of his audience.  He then settled down to work on his 'comeback' album, which is still unfinished after over ten years, and yet has already cost more than any album ever made.  Axel alone was more entertaining than all the rap star millionaires, geriatric retread rockers and bimbo divas of our time put together.

"Mythologically speaking, the band cannot be touched: first gaining fame by opening for Metallica, then disintegrating at the apex of their popularity. And in the moody, unpredictable Axl Rose, who has spent the last 12 years working on a mysterious record called Chinese Democracy, Guns N' Roses had the perfect lead singer: a self-destructive, antisocial jerk who never wrote a song about global warming."-Joe Queenan

  Good with the GNR lineup from back in the day.  Not so much anymore.  I don't think Chinese Democracy is ever coming out.
