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!
