Check your egos at the door...

I came up with a list today featuring my top 5 bands with more than one lead vocalist.  It's not necessarily a list based on historical contributions to music and pop culture as much as  it is a list devoted to bands who used multiple vocalists to their advantage.  And the winners are: Cream-Jack Bruce and Eric Clapton Allman Brothers-Dickey Betts and Gregg Allman Fleetwood Mac-Lindsey Buckingham, Stevie Nicks and Christine McVie as of 1975 and prior to that Bob Welch, Peter Green and to a lesser known extent Danny Kirwin and Jeremy Spencer. Beatles-John, Paul, George and Ringo...you know, The Beatles And number one on my list...The Eagles.  Glenn Frey and Don Henley get most the credit but Randy Meisner, Joe Walsh and Timothy B. Schmidt have all sung lead on hit records.  The deciding factor for me when it comes to placing  The Eagles ahead of the other competition on this list...The varied styles of the singers.  Vocally, they have been a very versatile American Band. So there you go...that's The List!

Awesome list. But what about Crosby Stills Nash and Young or even without young?

I know you have Queen on the 3:00 3-peet but they should also be on your "List". Freddie ruled the roost but Brian and Roger contributed plenty. Just my 2 cents.

Dan, I think you nailed it with the Eagles... they happen to be my favorite band. When I was growing up, I never realized that all these songs that I loved were by the same group, because of the shifting lead singers. Love them!
