    Are there bands that you would like or would enjoy more if they had different vocalists?
    If so, who are they, and who would you like to see as the replacement singers?

    Here’s one to get some riled up.

    Rush

    While I’m a fan, I would have liked them more with GL sticking to bass and adding a really good vocalist.

    I thought Geddy's vocals got better as he got older - "Snakes and Arrows", "Feedback" and "Clockwork Angels" he seems to have mellowed out.

    A band that could use a better vocalist?

    Gretta Van Fleet. Replacement? Anybody...

    I'm with you on this one. I can still take James on recordings, but live it getting tough. As for someone else, maybe Lance King or Nils K. Rue

    That was going to be my next post. I’m a big DT fan; He’s adequate, but he’s the weak link, IMO.

    David Lee Roth should sing for every band with distorted guitars besides Slayer.

    All new bands should be fronted by Luke Spiller. He's the damn truth.

    I kinda agree, I don't mind Geddy's studio voice, but his live voice sounds like he's tone deaf. Fellow Canadian Rik Emmett might make a good substitute.

    Gonna disagree to a point...
    I latched onto Rush with their debut album with Rutsey on drums. It was different sounding, and Lee's voice contributed greatly to that sound.
    So to me, it's like saying Jon Anderson held Yes back.



    Or what TF does Lou Reed have any business doing with a microphone?
    I dunno… it's so subjective that my opinion doesn't matter a [email protected] anyway.:p

    But... just to throw my hat in the ring, how about GnR… cuz Axl Rose is a d!ck.
    There, I said it:rolleyes:

    Not a Motley Crew fan, but might be tolerable without Vince Neil.

    Totally on board with this. The last two times I saw Motley I left five songs in.
