    Many, many more candidates; very impressive compilation. I thank one and all; a spur-of-the-moment question well answered--the overall impression is of the guitar-playing lead singer, or of the lead singer not being an active instrumentalist, but clearly bassists are well represented also .

    The Teardrop Explodes - Treason (It's Just A Story) (1981)

    Julian Cope. Probably one of the top five progressive New Wave/Punk bands.

    It would be interesting to find out which of the Italian Progressive bands had lead vocals/bass.

    And how could I forget about Richard Sinclair. Caravan, Hatfield and the North and Camel. With Mark Sandman he's definitely my favorite.

    another famous one not yet mentioned, Peter Steele from Type O'Negative, also famous because he used a chain as a bass strap.

    A few more, although in most cases lead vocal duties were shared with at least one bandmate.

    Burke Shelley - Budgie
    John Lodge - Moody Blues
    Nick Lowe - Brinsley Schwarz/Rockpile
    Jean-Jacques Burnel - Stranglers
    Ronnie Lane - Small Faces/Faces
    Chris Hillman - Byrds/Flying Burrito Brothers
    Jim Dewar - Stone the Crows/Robin Trower

    Richard Sinclair is wonderful! Can't believe I forgot him. I'm a huge fan of Caravan, and Hatfield.

    This one starts out with Richard on guitar and vocals, but when the full band kicks in his wonderful bass lines really drive this tune along with the beautiful melody.
