During a recent interview with the “Sally Steele Rocks!” show, singer Dee Snider touched on what makes great “frontmen” in rock topic, after a fan tweeted and praised the late Ronnie James Dio as the second-greatest singer following Freddie Mercury.
About this topic, Snider replied the following:
“How do you differentiate a Dee Snider or an Alice Cooper or a Robert Plant or a Bon Scott… Or a Chris Cornell, who just stood there, but he sang perfectly every night.
”So I was just trying, in a social media Twitter discussion, to explain the differences. And people were up in arms: ‘How can you possibly say that Robert Plant isn’t a great frontman?’
”And I love Robert. And I was just trying to… You can’t put me and Robert Plant in the same category. So how would you explain what Dee Snider does on stage and what Robert Plant does on stage. And I was trying to do that. But people got upset.”
