They play the Bass and sing...it's multi tasking on the bottom end in a rock and roll band and the following are my choices for the 7 best Bass Playin' Lead Vocalizing Rock Dudes;
7-Phil Lynott with Thin Lizzy-*he wore Chuck Taylors too...very cool
6-Greg Lake-Emerson Lake and Palmer
5-Roger Waters-Pink Floyd
1-Paul McCartney-you know...that Beatle guy
Paul is my number one choice and his place in history as well as his influence on so many others cements him there. I'm always curious to know what you think. Tomorrow on The List-the 7 Essential Albums of the 80's!
Hi Dan, I enjoy your lists every afternoon. But just few comments about this one. When you played the songs representing the Bass playing Lead singer guys, when you played the Floyd and beatle songs, you played songs where Gilmour was singing lead and Lennon was singing lead. I think this might have confused some people. Thank you. Keep up the good work.
