    i never really catch the in-between-songs stuff, i'm rarely in a position to be able to see or much of a state to be able to hear/follow :D john grant really stood out for me but maybe that was time-of-the-day-front-of-the-stage as much as anything.

    Another vote for Skin here, simply awesome in the mid 90's.
    Also a big fan of Robb Flynn from Machine Head.

    Actually Laurel Aitken was incredible on the couple of occasions I saw him. Totally owned the stage - one time he was on before The Selecter and Pauline Black isn't too shabby on the stagecraft herself, but Aitken made her look like an amateur.

    Easy - Freddie Mercury

    The first gig I ever went to was Queen in 1976. Spoilt every other gig for me because nothing else has really come close.

    Kaka Tim Crush the Saboteurs!

    Of those ive seen - buster bloodvessel of bad manners. My old ska band supported them in the late 90s. He comes on stage and the whole crowd is chanting "you fat bastard" - he starts egging everyone on, whipping up the chanting then calmly takes the mic and says "thankyou for noticing me" - this is followed by a solid hour of stomping, hi energy, larger then than life, oversized magic.

    Little Princess Orchestra, of Andre St Hackney, managed to have both the best male and female presence on stage at the same time. No footage taht i can find but heres some recordings nonetheless.
