    I know there are a lot of other great metal frontmen, but I'm really looking for who people think is better between these two. I only put other up there, well, because I know people will want that option :p So who do you think is the greater metal frontman?

    Dio was a better singer than Ozzy, but he never gave any real feeling. He never tryed.

    So I'll go for Ozzy between the two of them.

    But Dani Filth (Cradle of Filth), Jason Mendonca (Akercocke) or Ihsahn (Emperor) are all better than both.

    I'm amazed nobody has suggested Phil Anselmo. Are you all forgetting one of the greatest metal bands of our generation? Phil can sing AND scream and has an amazing stage presence.

    Phil Anselmo???, Dimebag Darrell would be rolling over in his grave if he heard that.

    First off, Phil Anselmo is no Rob Halford.
    Second, Who cares about Phil anyway? Didn't he get all whacked out on drugs before being kicked out of the band?

    Third, Phil Anselmo is a has been, Rob Halford is still kicking ass with his band in tact.

    I will admit Phil had a good voice back in the day.

    I have to admit I was never a huge JP fan. I enjoy some of their songs, but when it comes down to it Pantera was always one of my favorites. I wonder what Phil is up to these days...
