    I need your help everyone. I have a question. My hubby is a guitar player and I am a bassist. He seems to think that labels don't sign mixed groups for example a female bass or female guitar player with all the rest boys. If you all could, name me some famous rock or country groups that are this way. Thank you!

  4. A Perfect Circle, Bif Naked's band is mixed, David Usher's band, Lenny Kravitz's band, David Bowie's band. A lot of solor artists with backing bands seem to have both sexes. This might be because a lot of these bands are chosen purely for each member's skills as a musician, whereas other bands tend to also be people that work well sociall. For example a group of guys who hang out together start a band, or a group of girls do the same thing.

    Well, moxnix, perhaps because she asked for female bassists/guitarists. There's only a bijillion bands with female lead singers...
