From Jim Morrison to Dave Grohl, Robbie Williams to Chris Martin and Liam Gallagher to Joe Strummer, readers of Q' have been voting on who deserves to feature in 'The 100 Greatest Frontmen.'

The editors point out that 'if anyone knows what this frontman lark is all about it's Bono' - and returning the compliment Bono has written his own 'Top Tips To Being A Frontman'. Here's some highlights, for the rest you'll need to pick up the new Q which is just on sale.

'Lie about your height even if you're 5'10" like me.'

'Don't imagine the audience doesn't know who you really are - they really do... in a very intimate way. You live in their ear after all, must next door to the brain, down the hall to the bedroom of their heart...very, very intimate.'

'Be unreasonable in your expectations of yourself and your audience.'

'Never tell a journalist that you're really shy underneath it all.'

'History is made at night and electrically. Generally speaking all great encounters with your audience will occur by the light of the moon or some artificial equivalent. Live at night when you are performing. But try the morning for writing.'
