    For me, Goth should be Robert Smith of "The Cure."

    There are some interesting choices here, it’s not about your favorite. I think to be the “face” of something you have to be a single person that people of the general public would recognize (as opposed to the general TDPRI demographic).

    Some examples:
    1. Sorry Halford, Iommi or Hetchfield, my mom has no idea who you are, but she sure as hell knows who Ozzy is.
    2. I couldn’t pick Peter Tosh out of a lineup, but recognize Bon Marley’s face from the millions of T-shirts out there.

    Well, unless your mom is much cooler than mine, that's probably because he
    bumbled around like a drunken groundhog in a recent reality tv show. I have a hard time believing any of those are more of a "face" than this:

    Reminds me of a joke:

    Norm Macdonald: "Also in entertainment, the play “Hiroshima,” a tribute to the victims of the first atomic bomb, with music and singing by Yoko Ono, opened in New York City this week. One tearful Japanese survivor of the attack who attended the premiere called the play, quote, “the most horrifying experience of my life!”

    Not a singer?


    On second thought, maybe you're right...

    That was hysterical. I found the SNL transcript online from this episode (from 1997!). Never heard it, thanks for sharing.
