On-stage they are world-famous, flamboyant showmen that have defined generations, inspired millions and created the soundtracks to our lives.

Off-stage they are frequently destructive, controlling and angry with highly complex lives who struggle to hold down relationships and often abuse drugs and alcohol.

A key ingredient of any frontman is an intense appetite for success and adulation - the power of money and prestige that allows demons in and raw emotions to come out. This series of programmes is about the extraordinary individuals who have followed this path; boys, often from small town America, who have gone onto dominate the world – outraging, upsetting, entertaining and inspiring.

Many frontmen are fired by drugs, alcohol, sex, wealth and fragile egos. These fuel volatility, corruption, suspicion, paranoia and ill health. There are lawsuits, arguments, debts, touring verses family, celebrity verses the mundane, shared history, managers and the pressure to keep churning out the hits. These are the stories of the greatest frontmen in history.
