We hear the words used all the time, rock star. There have been a lot of them, but which one do you really think embodies that term the best? Steven Tyler from Aerosmith comes to mind, as well as Jon Bon Jovi.

Id have to say Ozzy, Alice Cooper, ACDC, Meatloaf and Dio and so on.... considering Alice Cooper has been around for just over 40 years, Ozzy been aroun for about 40 years, meat has been around for nearly 40 years and so on and they are awesome and legends so....

I love old time rock but I guess this is not what this one is about so I would say Gene Simmons from Kiss and Ozzie Osbourne. When I think of Rock stars I think of them first and formost. I watch Gene Simmons family jewels all the time it is great to be able to see into the life of Him and his family. I have tried to watch the Osbourne's but I didn't really find it as tastful as the Gene Simmons one.

The Rolling Stones are not my favorite group but Mick Jagger and Keith Richards have to be the quintessential rock stars.

Both of the above you mention are fantastic. I also loved Kurt Cobain, I love Billy Idol and agree with Winterrose that Mick Jagger is too. There are just so many to choose from eh! Ellie :D

Alot of the bands from the 80s, in my opinion. "Rock" is so much different today than it was back then, when it was good. I'd say Bon Jovi...Jefferson Starship...Boston...REO Speedwagon..Warrant...ToTo...i could go on and on!

From my generation, my pick would be Mick Jagger. From my daughter's generation, I would say Slash.

for me it would be Mick Jagger. The man is a legend. He is still around after 30 years. The Rolling Stones was one of the best rock groups of all time.

Each has different qualities, so choosing one to represent the embodiment of Rock Star wouldn't be fair!
