Top 10 Backing Vocalists in Rock and MetalMetal_Treasure
The Contenders: Page 2XW
He's their bassist. I like his vocals more than the lead vocals, especially on "No You Don't" and "Fox On The Run". The song "Restless" was sung by Steve Priest. - Metal_Treasure
John has very good backing vocals. Especially in Can't Stop, Sir Psycho Sexy, Venice Queen and Knock me Down.
By the way and snow are two of my favorites, great background vocals - Flea does a good job too but not as good.
Go and listen to Venice Queen and he will instantly be your number one choice.V1 Comment
He did lead vox on 'Vote With A Bullet' by Corrosion of Conformity. - Metal_Treasure
A massive jerk, but Crosby essentially invented the concept of "high harmony" that enhanced whatever the lead singer was doing, and making the overall sound much better.
He sings alone the song "In These Arms". Not bad. - Metal_Treasure
Neil was young and still a little shy about singing the amazing songs he was writing even back then, and often let Richie Furay, Stephen Stills, or Jim Messina take the lead vocals, and just contributed to the background.
"On The Way Home" and "Do I Have to Come Right Out and Say It" are among Buffalo Springfield's best songs written by Neil, but with Richie Furay as lead singer. When BS has a reunion concert, Richie still sings lead, but you can tell that Neil's backing vocal adds a lot. It is an exceedingly rare treat when Neil performs those numbers himself at one of his own concerts.
He started as a guitarist and backing vocalist for Thin Lizzy but continued with a very successful solo career. - Metal_Treasure
He's a virtuoso guitar player and backing vocalist but he sang all vocals on some of his albums. His singing isn't as impressive as his guitar playing but is OK (some popular lead singers sing worse than him, haha). - Metal_Treasure
He was the bassist for the Eagles until 1977 I believe, he had a beautiful voice and could hit some insane high notes, most notably on "Take it to the Limit", I wouldn't say top 5, but he deserves a spot on the top 20 - VintagePetRaptor
