    Besides Jack Bruce. I also mean straight blues. Does anyone know of any bassist that played the blues but also sang lead vocals or co-lead vocals? I've been really considering giving singing a shot while playing bass because I can't find anyone at my young twenties age rage that wants to play solid blues or even sing blues. And I will feel so cool once I can start to sing along while I play slow walking blues haha. Thanks!

    Hmmm...great question. I'm at a loss to think of anyone beyond Jack Bruce, so I'll be following this too!

    James Dewar - Robin Trower.
    Check out "Bridge of Sighs"
    There's some great bluesy singing and playing, although Trower was known as a rock guitarist.

    Check out Danielle Schnebelen from Trampled Under Foot, one of my favorite singers these days.

    Me! Ha ha, just kidding but I'm working on it too. Blues is a good place to start because after a while the fingers can just go on automatic pilot making the singing and playing together a lot easier.

    Yes, Motorhead usually throws a Blues tune on many of their albums.

    Here's one I'm planning cover in my Blues band. :bassist:
