True  it is  the  NME - but  still ......no  Little Richard , Bono , Axl , no  Rob  Halford , Bruce Dickinson  or  Michael  Stipe . Do  Bowie  and Elvis  count as  front men or  solo   artists  ? I guess  the  list  is  a  reflection of  the NME 's demographic .

Ah you mean the top 20. Do they deserve to be there?

"Do they  deserve to be there ?" Well in terms  of  stage craft  and stage  presense  then IMHO the  answer  would  be  a  "yes" - all of them  have more  charisma than  Robert Smith ! 8 -) Isn't the  job  of   a  front  man  to  be  a  conduit between the  band  and  audience ? Also  surely  Alice Cooper  and Ozzy  should  make  the  top  20 .

Well... Bono can be really quoted as being very professional in this aspect. He knows how to please his audiences. If he's being honest (with himself and with the audiences themselves), that's another story. Bruce is quite good with his job too. Axl... not really. Rob Halford... well... let's include Gene Simmons then.

And yes, Robert Smith is a good frontman. It's just another kind of cup of tea.

I  agree with you  on Bono , he  does  take himself far  too seriously and is  on an  ego trip

The daughter of my ex-boss was living in UK when they were in the Achtung/Trabant days and rumours were that he was high on heroin most of the time back then. Even if he quit, he is still tripping. A lot. One particular scene that annoys me is one in Rattle & Hum where he is reciting the lyrics of "when love comes to town" to BB King like if he was Shakespeare proof reading something...

Stage presence and charisma doesn't mean to jump like a monkey or scream ARE YOU READY TO ROCK all the time there's a pause. I just read the comments on that poll... fans are funny.
