Madmen of rock/metal

These frontmen are the insane jesters of rock/metal. Whether it be their humour, stage antics, lyrical ideas, or just plain weirdness.
1Devin Townsend

Crikey. Where to start? Posing half naked on his album 'Infinity', singing about Olives and imitating a hillbilly ho-down in 'Triumph'. And that doesn't include the live Strapping Young Lad D.V.D where apparently he cuts loose..
2Mike Patton

He may have mellowed out a bit lately, but the General still has some weird shit to his name: youtube.com has a video of Patton interrupting a MTV host while she's trying to announce the next band. Also invites crowds to indulge in spitting on him. Lyrically he reached some pretty strange heights as well.
3Jim Martin

While i'm talking about Patton, how weird is the former Faith No More guitarist Jim Martin... During a live video of Midlife Crisis, Martin stands dead still smoking a cigarette while he's wearing two pairs of glasses over each other. Also note how he NEVER exposes his face. Not once have I seen it.

Ulver/Arcturus frontman Garm is the Norwegian jester. He changes names almost as much as he changes vocal styles. The song title 'Porn piece or the scars of cold kisses' should give you an idea of what runs in this man's mind.
5Syd Barrett

Barrett was the mastermind behind early Pink Floyd and while his work was creative, when it came to live performances he would sometimes play one chord to the sheer horror of his bandmates. Definately a weird man.
6Jeff Buckley

Despite his clean cut looks and passionate music which suggests a fairly straight forward man, Buckley was very weird on stage. I own a D.V.D of him and his humour is quite brilliant. One liners are timed to perfection.
