How about Be Bop Deluxe... nope... Rocket Cathedrals.... great guitar, btw... glare Boston... technically they had two lead vocalists on one of their tours, Fran Cosmo and Brad Delp. Did Geils ever have another vocalist on those sucky later commercial albums I never bought? I ...don't... know...

You're just trying to confuse us, aren't you, Jackass?


Years ago i was working at am employee lunch counter at Sears. I had the honor of serving Fran lunch a few times. He would sheetwall to eat . HA he said he had to sheetwall because he blew all his dough.He had been in ORION THE HUNTER. Fran is still vital of course but when i heard he was singing for Boston, i was stoked. Good dude. I think he's learned his lesson and he's wiser with his $$. His son is following his footsteps today.

You could argue that Yes is one, in that the lead singer in which ever line-up you look at didn't share lead vocals... Jon Anderson sings lead on every album but Drama.
The Fratellis are another with Jon Fratelli being the lead singer.
I think most of the obvious ones have been said so I can't think of any more.

CAKE is easily a one-man-vocal show, with some backing and harmonies. John McCrea deadpans every song on every album...

They're still great.

And I will argue that Trevor sings lead on two songs on both 90125 and Big Generator as just a few examples.

Not sure if I already said this, but with Bright Eyes, for better or worse (depending on how you feel about his voice) Conor Oberst pretty much always takes lead vocal

Snake, history will never know what she did. No one will ever learn the truth. Her story... her debriefing... will endure only in your heart. Everything she did, she did for her country. She sacrificed her life and her honor for her native land. She was a real hero. She was a true patriot. ~ EVA re: The Boss (MGS3)

I don't know if it's been mentioned, but in Radiohead Thom Yorke handles most lead work, although Ed O'Brien does add backing vocals sometimes. Also, Led Zeppelin had Robert Plant mainly singing the lead, with the other members occassionally chipping in with background.

The Animals, I'm pretty sure Eric sang all their songs.
I'm not so sure about the Yardbirds, I think Keith sang all as far as I know or remember hearing, but I could be wrong.
I wish Procol Harum would have done the same for A Salty Dog....
