    No need for comparing nor arguing, and yes it's shallow, but who is or was the most effortlessly cool musician or singer in your opinion? Personally, I couldn't narrow it down to one only but off the top of my head I would say
    Lemmy
    Iggy Pop
    Ian Brown
    Jimi Hendrix
    Keith Richards

    Jimmy Page in his prime

    The violin bow, the double neck guitar, the outfits, the mystique, his looks. He had everything. He was amazing.

    And I'll tell you right now who's the uncoolest of all: Jack White, because he constantly tries his hardest to be the coolest. Hey Jack, it doesn't work that way!
