    there are a lot of bassists that sing. one cool example... ever hear victor wootens track "Me and my Bass Guitar"? its amazing how he can play an incredibly intricate bass lines, and rap/sing over them. The man is truly amazing. Personally, I have dabbled in singing. (once sang "under the bridge" with my band back home) i prefer not to though, because I would rather concentrate on my playing. I also am not nearly talented enough to sing and play bass at the same time. at least not the way i prefer to play it ;) I am only one example in millions of bassists worldwide though, and many are (unlike me) talented enough to sing and play at the same time.
  5. Its very hard to play a rythem and beat instument at the same time as singing. Same goes with drums.

    two words 'THE EAGLES', they all bloody sang lead vocals at some point :) very cool, and i don't think there was one song where one wasn't singing backing!

    anyone heard of Rootjoose (english band), the bassist in that sang loads, was pretty much the frontman
