Geddy Lee - singing, playing the bass/keyboards and foot pedals - all at the same time. Gotta go with the best live show I have ever seen - Rush.

Freddie Mercury and Angus Young spring to mind. Any interesting others?
Did You mean Bon Scott?

What's your criteria?
Charismatic showman? Powerful vocals?

To add a few progressive bands

Genesis - Peter Gabriel
Uriah Heep - David Byron
Deep Purple - Ian Gillian
Renaissance - Annie Haslam
King Crimson - John Wetton, Greg Lake

There once was a little band from Memphis--Bill Black on bass, Scotty Moore on guitar, DJ Fontana the drummer and a pretty good "front man" ( which I take it is the new small talk for singer)...

In terms of shows played, hit songs, longevity of a single act, and plain energy and appeal... no one comes close to Mick Jagger.

You may like other frontmen more- but objectively, he's held his group together longer, produced more hits over a longer period, had more tours, and sold more tickets than any other performer.

Bob Dylan has had similar longevity- producing more hit songs and more recently so- but he is essentially a solo act and so not the frontman for a single band.
