The '80s wasn't short on its fair share of cheese. Even though we may look back fondly on the music and retro styles, the era of spandex and neon plastered clothes don't really hold up as well in retrospect. However, some of the greatest performers to ever grace a stage ended up standing apart from the patted fluff of the decade.
Whether it was through the interesting vocal range they brought to the table or from the way they moved the crowd, these bands gave the golden age of rock and roll a run for its money in terms of giving an audience a show. From one song to the next, these men and women lit up the stage every time they were in the spotlight, making every single concertgoer feel like they were in the front row.
There have been plenty of frontmen who are just looking to play a couple of their songs and call it a night, but each of these guys showed that it's what you do with your stage time rather than what you play.
Some may have loved them and some may have hated them, but every one of these singers grabbed the audience by the throat and refused to let go.
I'm just a junkie for all things media. Whether it's music, movies, TV, or just other reviews, I absolutely adore this stuff. But music was my first love, and I love having the opportunity to share it with you good people.
