QUEEN frontman Freddie Mercury has been voted the best rock singer ever in a poll by the makers of hit videogame Rock Band.
Mercury beat Mick Jagger and Kurt Cobain in a survey from Electronic Arts to find the ultimate fantasy rock band.
Jimi Hendrix was voted best rock guitarist, narrowly beating both Guns N’ Roses’ Slash and Led Zeppelin’s Jimmy Page.
On bass, the Red Hot Chili Peppers’ Flea got the nod over Beatles’ star Paul McCartney.
The final place went to The Who’s legendary drummer Keith Moon, who bagged 10% more votes than second-placed Phil Collins.
The poll, which ran on website GigWise.com to celebrate the release of Rock Band from EA, also quizzed fans on their best rock album, best ever gig and most outrageous moment in rock history.
