bands and success with a 3rd lead singer


Recommended Posts

OK, so we know it is rare when a band loses it first singer and they decide to carry on with a 2nd singer. success it hard to come by. you have a few, most notable would have to be AC/DC and Van Halen and Bad Company. Now, how many bands still have success even when they get to their 3rd lead singer? Journey is on their 3rd lead singer and still making good music and still selling album. lets see how this next one sells but it could be a monster. what other bands are on a 3rd singer and still successful? I think the Bad Company with Hart on vocals was fantastic but it just didn't grab the public at the time. I guess you can say now that Foreigner is on their 3rd singer.

Deep Purple - The MKIII era with Coverdale and Hughes was very successful.

 

Riot - With Tony Moore with the 'Thundersteel' release was probably their best seller in the US.

 

Rainbow - With JLT they were on the radio more and found much more commercial success especially in the US.

 

Anthrax - With John Bush 'The Sound of White Noise' disc went platinum and they continued to release great albums and tour consistently for the next ten years.

 

MSG - With Robin McCauley they had their biggest hit in the US "Anytime".

I thought Journey was up to their 4th or 5th lead singer... Fleishman, Rollie, Perry, Augeri

 

6th actually

 

Fleishman > Rolie > Perry > Augeri > JSS > Pineda

I thought maybe John Bush had a brother that I didn't know about. :lol:
