    Bruce Dickinson or Rob Halford.

    And before anyone comments about my age, and how their careers started before I was born, their bands released albums during my lifetime.

    Freddie Mercury is most likely the winner here but I must give honorable mention to Robert Plant and Kurt Cobain.

    Tough choice . . . Tops would be Mercury, McCartney, Plant and Steve Perry.
