Kerrang! have shared their 50 Greatest Rockstars In The World Right Now for 2015. M. Shadows comes in at #44.
#44 M. Shadows
Last year: 16
If 2014 had been blessed with two Greatest Rockstars lists, with the second arriving in last June, M. Shadows would probably have found his ranking brushing the Top 5, such was the spectacle of Avenged Sevenfold’s debut Download headline set. Unfortunately for M., though, he’s had to wait an excitement-cooling eight months, during which Avenged have largely retreated from view to work on the follow-up to 2013’s Hail To The King. Consider M.’s slip to the mid-40’s, then, more a temporary place to put his feet up for a while and focus on new material.
