The Top Ten
1 Lead Singer

The most noted member of the band the lead singer, or vocals, has majority of eyes on them, and they have to constantly train their voice to keep an audience hooked on the band.

Lead singers are the ones that have most eyes on them and have to constantly train teir voice to the likings of people everywhere. These are the most noted members of te band.

Yeah lead singer is the one who comes out to be identity of a band!

Lead singer are always identified band.

2 Lead Guitarist

The talent and skill that is put into a great guitar player can sometimes get them more noticed than the lead singer.

Best position and most skill required. Also sounds the coolest.

I was a lead guitarist for many years oh how I miss the babes...

Guitarist is one of the needed person in the band!

3 Drummer

The drummer not only has the best seat in the house, but controls the tempo of the music, and is also responsible for keeping everyone else on tempo.

Best seat in the house, between the bass and the guitar, yes, we love the rev and lars

Even though you're secluded in the back the drummer adds heavy beats to songs.

Least Obnoxious member of the band, most chilled

4 Bassist

Usually the most underrated member of a typical four or five piece band, but can still be just as important.

As important as drummer. Look how people move its heads, always is following the the bass lines.

One of the most important members of the band, it connects the band.

Generally the guy with the most brains, most knowledge of music Theory and most talanted

5 Rhythm Guitarist

More important than lead guitarist because this guy lays down the riffs everyone knows from the songs. However if you aren't going to have one the lead guitar CAN cover it, although you can't have solos with a riff which would make the song stronger.

Usually the lead singer can be the lead guitarist, but there are many bands with an extra guitarist.

6 Keyboardist / Pianist

Usually kind of underrated but add flairs and more emphasis on the tune making them valuable.
