Thanks for helping me get my first Freddie post out of the way, Levee. :D

Saturday is the 16th anniversary of Freddie's death. Miss you, Freddie. -_-

This is very hard.....I would usually go with Lennon or some member of the Beatles, or Elvis, but there is one that comes ahead.

I think Jimmy Page circa 1969, on the black and white footage of him at the Denmark gig is him looking the coolest ever.

I have a long list, but Zep members are interesting people, and Janis Joplin.

Sorry, I keep bringing up Janis but she is my second favorite artist/band second to Zeppelin.

Don't apologize - Janis is awesome! I listened to "Ball and Chain" the other day for the first time in ages - man, that girl could wail. God bless 'er. ^_^

Hendrix and Zappa definately had style. Dylan comes and goes as he pleases.

Then there's Thom Yorke, Jonny Greenwood, Ed O'Brien, Colin Greenwood, and Phil Selway.

I found a link to Little Girl Blue just about 10 minutes ago. If you go to the last page of the Rer Caption Chatter thread it's there, I'll pm it to you. It was the first time I'd ever heard it and I was blown away.

Suzanne, thank you for that picture. She's with Grace Slick of Jefferson Airplane right?

I agree with the previous two, split by gender:

Coolest female: Janis

Coolest male: Keith

(Boy, I wish we could still use titles with our avatars--I used to be able to give Janis the "Full Tilt" props . . . :'( )

I have to say, Roland Kirk practically defined cool. But I was thinking in terms of rock music, myself.
