    The bassist and singer from Scäm Luiz - I forgot his name.

    Bootsy (he's not exactly a singer, but you just HAVE to include him).

    Glad someone included Pinnick finally. I think I agree with your 3 and add Victor Wooten now that he has a solo career.

    I agree about Bootsy too...I don't think you can count saying "Aww yeah, baby!" and "Comin' to get ya!" 50 times in a row as singing. ;)

  18. What about Paul McCartney? I'm surprised that only one other person said his name.

    The guy from MxPx is Mike Hererra.
     
  19. I agree with all of those, but you left out one very large person.... FAT MIKE
