Musicians With The Best Faces

Added on by Patrick Hosmer.

Ladies and gentlemen, Jim “Soni” Sonefeld from Hootie & The Blowfish. Doesn't this guy make you want to go back to college in the 90s? To Ithaca? He makes that shit look real fun.

No one combines Criss Angel, Vin Diesel, Eli Roth and Adam Duritz better than Daughtry. Starting at the top left, you can see the spectrum of emotion his face (and hands) can convey.

How much does this guy look like a bassist? Congratulations, Mike Dirnt from Greenday. You invented Bass Face. 

The most effective way to tell if a musician has a "Best Face," is to turn the sound off. I did that with Fred Schneider of The B-52's and he immediately turned into a complain-y old geezer who was always surprised at everything. So basically he became Fred Schneider. 

Step aside, Mike Dirnt. This fucking guy is the new hotness in the Bass Face Industry. This is the only picture on the Internet of Andrew WK's bassist. He looks like one of the crazy axe-wielding chiefs from Gangs of New York. Kewl.

What's so fucking funny, Eddie Van Halen?

This guy did the chorus in Coolio's Gangsta's Paradise and you only saw the side of his face. I've never seen a chorus sung harder. It's like he was forcing that chorus out through his pores. 

You can just shut up, Chad Smith from Red Hot Chili Peppers because you are Will Ferrell. I don't even want to hear it, Frank The Tank. You're fucking Frank The Tank.
