Bands Who Do Not Share Lead Vocals
#11
"She's So Fine" was not Jimi on vocals. Noel Redding. And I am trying to think of the vocals of the songs of the Band Of Gypsys album. Think Billy Cox had a lead in there somewhere.
You did surprise me with the Sabbath and I must now get the disc to listen.
I forget wh Wrote:Was going to say Rush. Call me Mr.Picky, but does the (largely) instrumental "Grand Finale" from 2112, count? Has the spoken words:-
"Attention all planets of the solar federation / We have assumed control / We have assumed control - I always assumed that was delivered by Neil Peart.....No, you`re right...I`m being picky.

Talking of power-trios, The Jimi Hendrix Experience...can`t thing of any non-Jimi lead vocals.
Free? Back to Paul Rodgers again. With a voice that good, who else would dare try.
Yeah we will try to completely ignore the delivery of rap on Roll The Bones from whomever is responsible as well.

Biggrin Heh heh. Yes. Sounds wise.
Re Sabs, Ward also sang on "Swinging The Chain" from the "Never Say Die" album. Ozzy was really playing up at this point, so it was probably less a matter of choice, and more a case of "needs must" by then ......."Ozzy`s gone AWOL again, so who`s gonna sing this?!

Trevor Rabin sang vocals more than a few times once he joined Yes but Dire Straits is a good one.

Deep Purple the exception. Re the albums Burn & Stormbringer, David Coverdale & bassist Glenn Hughes often shared lead vocals in the same song (ie "Hold On"). Sometimes Glenn would sing on his own too (ie "Holy Man").
I quite like that particular Purple-era...although it ultimately proved a little too "funky" and soulful for Blackmore ("shoe-shine music", he called it) who bailed out to form Rainbow.

Yeah that Steven Tyler's always hogging the lead vocals in Aerosmith songs. I'm gonna get that guy one day.
But to clarify, I was hoping we could think of songs and groups that the no other members sings lead. Shared vocal phrases are ok. I'm just saying for instance John Paul Jones or Jimmy Page may have sung harmonizing vocals in Led Zeppelin, but neither they nor Bonham sang part of or any lead vocals in any song. Plant was the voice of the band with absolutely no exceptions.
But we can have some fun with it.

Oingo Boingo, Blind Faith

There always seems to be an exception about this. Bands can have gone 30 years or so with one lead vocalist and their first album will have two of them. Jethro Tull and ELO for instance.

Cool

I think Ian Curtis sang all the Joy Division songs ... Andrew Eldritch all of The Sisters of Mercy songs, though Gary Marx might have sang one or two songs in the early days. Peter Murphy/Bauhaus, Siouxsie Sioux/Siouxsie And The Banshees ... Dzjeez, how did I get in this goth-mood? Unsure
