I’ve played Frankie Cosmos shows where the promoter or whoever sees that I’m the lead singer, and then they go up to David, the bassist, and are like, ‘So, do we pay you?’ And he’s like, ‘No, you pay her; she’s the boss.’ Those are moments where I’m just like, ‘I’m clearly in charge.’
Frankie Cosmos
I know the lead singer of System of a Down, and I record violin tracks with him.
David Alpay
I ended up starting guitar because I didn’t want to just be the lead singer.

Grace Chatto
I would have wanted to be a rock star, a lead singer, if I wasn’t a model. I’d go touring in a bus with my band. In my next life, that’s the plan.
Kate Moss
The lead singer for Deerhunter, Bradford Cox… I don’t like saying people are geniuses or whatever, but I just think that dude is so good at every single thing he does. He stays within his genre, but I think he does so well experimenting with stuff.
Blake Anderson

The lead singer is such a prominent thing, where drums are more of a supporting instrument.

Tony Kanal
When we did a lot of that Motown stuff there were four of us on the front line. When we started the evening we’d start from one end of the band and just go along. The lead singer would change all the time. That’s the first time that I actually managed to put it into a record.
Roy Wood
I was a Skynyrd fan all along. But I was also the brother of the lead singer who passed on. I just didn’t want to do anything that would harm the band’s name.
Johnny Van Zant

Rick Nielsen
It may take me a long time before I feel ‘ready’ to tour as a lead singer. I may never be ready… we’ll just have to see.

Richie Sambora
I’m not comfortable as a lead singer. Maybe I could do it in the studio, but I wouldn’t have the confidence to play shows.

I like the bad-boy types. Generally the guy I’m attracted to is the guy in the club with all the tattoos and nail polish. He’s usually the lead singer in a punk band and plays guitar. But my serious boyfriends are relatively clean-cut, nice guys. So it’s strange.
Megan Fox
I think it gets boring (for the audience) for the lead singer to have a guitar hanging on them all the time.

Suzi Quatro
A lot of the new people they choose on shows like ‘American Idol’ and things like that – I don’t ever hear lead singers. They always seem to choose to pick people that are great singers, fabulous singers, but they’ve never got the voice that makes a great lead singer.
