Doug: Today's question doesn't require much background, so I'll cut right to the chase. This is a multiple subject Face-Off, by the way. Can you think of bands that had two lead singers in the group at the same time, or in some cases two singers who were perfectly capable of carrying the band? Got one or two in mind? OK -- simply tell us which singer you preferred/enjoyed more on a given bands discography, and why.
Some nominees for consideration:
- The Beatles: John Lennon and Paul McCartney
- The Who: Roger Daltry (who sang far and away most of the band's mainstream hits) and Pete Townshend
- The Eagles: Don Henley and Glenn Frey
- Chicago: Peter Cetera and Terry Kath
- Journey: Gregg Rolie and (of course) Steve Perry
- The Cars: Benjamin Orr and Ric Ocasek
- The Monkees: Davy Jones and Micky Dolenz
- Three Dog Night: Cory Wells and Chuck Negron
- Earth, Wind, & Fire: Maurice White and Philip Bailey
- The Beach Boys: Brian Wilson and Mike Love
- KISS: Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley (duh... can't believe I left them off! I'll have to surrender my KISS Army card! Thanks, Erick!)
Have fun, and be sure to throw out some other favorite groups!
