Paul Stanley is a rather open book on social media and decided to share who he thinks are the best lead singers of all time.

He wrote via Twitter, “The best lead singers of all time? How about 11 off the top of my head…”

The man also known as Starchild then rattled off a very interesting list of great singers. Whether they’re ranked or not isn’t really known, but it’s always interesting to find out where rock icons stand on highly debated topics like this.

Stanley’s list is as follows:

  • 1. Robert Plant

  • 2. Steve Marriott

  • 3. Freddie Mercury

  • 4. David Ruffin

  • 5. Rod Stewart

  • 6. Paul Rodgers

  • 7. Janis Joplin

  • 8. Steve Perry

  • 9. Brad Delp

  • 10. Brian Johnson

  • 11. Lou Gramm

  • 12. Ann Wilson

  • Here's Stanley's exact tweet.

    (Note: Stanley lists two singers at number ten, but he doesn’t clarify whether that means it’s a tie.)
