I'm trying to write a summary for a current event article on Coldplay's tour of France, so...
Does anyone know how you would translate "frontman" into French?
As in, the main person/leader in a band?
Chris Martin, the frontman of Coldplay, is charming, charismatic and sometimes funny.

    Thanks for the context
    We could have made fools of ourselves and suggested "homme de paille" for:
    front man A man who serves as a nominal leader but who lacks real authority.

    I am sorry to say this, but I believe that there is no completely appropriate translation of frontman, but frontman can also be used in French!;)
