Best looking musicians

I am new here so I hope this is the right forum, instead of IMHO, but I've been listening to a lot of music lately, and have eclectic tastes in men.
Who would you say, are the top 3 most attractive men in music? Lets go from 1980 to present.
My list:
1. Bret Michaels (young)
2. Sylvain Sylvain
3. Nikki Sixx

I know this is about male musicians but I had to mention Maria Brink of the group "In This Moment". Holy shit she is hot.


ETA: Here she is.

Legends and very attractive IMHO
I know mileages vary and all that, but I don't think I've ever heard anyone mention Lemmy when talking about attractive people

Jim Morrison (before he grew a beard and acquired a spare tire) should be on the list somewhere.

Ninja'd. I thought exactly the same thing. Lemmy? I mean, he was awesome and all that, but handsome?

Oh, she certainly has! I have been in love with her since the early 1970s, when she first hit it big on the American charts.

Agree with most so far. Olivia is gorgeous, David Bowie, Barry Gibb, Jim Morrison, Sting (Lemmy? um, no).

I would like to nominate Jeff Buckley. Love those brooding looks.

If we're doing most beautiful female musicians, I think those are Shania Twain, Shakira and Cheryl Cole.

Kudos for the shout out to Syl Sylvain (ex-New York Doll). I thought he was just about forgotten.

Ok, with all this Olivia Newton John talk, I feel safe nominating a woman. Do you know Gabriella Quevedo? She's quite a guitar player, as well. (Understatement of the year!)

Heck yeah. Even after hearing him tell hilarious stories about how gross he is, he's still hot.
I don't really like new country music, but Luke Bryan is nice to look at.
George Michael was ridiculously pretty, in a good way.
And Gavin Rossdale. 'Nuff said.

Obviously Olivia Newton John is good looking. She's got those Max Born genes.

Yeah, the "horny successful rock star" vibe can overcome physical unattractiveness, for sure!

I'm sorry - I have to go back further than 1980.

Robert Plant (Led Zeppelin) was BEAUTIFUL in his prime (early to mid '70's). Unfortunately, not so much now!

Surprised how many posts it took to mention Robert Plant

I've always had a bit of a thing for Roger Waters even his younger, geekier look

I absolutely adore Jack White

Bjork and Liz Phair.

I'm not into dudes, usually, but ever since I was a grunge-loving junior high-schooler I wanted to look like Eddie Vedder and Kurt Cobain. And of course, there's always young Frank Sinatra.

A female friend of mine felt that Roy Orbison was the hottest man in history. I don't know what to believe anymore.
