RIAA 5+ Platinum Bands FrontmenDirections
Name the frontmen (and women) of bands with at least 5 RIAA album certifications. I am looking for the most well-known frontman/woman – occasionally I accept multiple answers for one band. But a frontman/woman who has barely been with the band is typically not counted. Band and total RIAA certifications shown. I didn’t include bands where frontman’s name is in the name of the band (i.e. Bon Jovi). I also didn’t include bands that didn’t have a designated ‘frontman’ but rather split vocals among multiple members typically (i.e. Fleetwood Mac).
Chris Cornell fronted Audioslave and Soundgarden, I guess certifications aren’t added up to the total?
Correct only Soundgarden appears as they had the requisite 5 certifications.
Who the F are Casting Crowns
if there are any frontmen/women missing who were the lead for a significant amount of the band’s time, let me know. please refer to directions for some notes regarding who I accepted. If I add them I will delete your comment.
Unless lead singing duties were shared, this is a glaring omission: Chicago.
there was a lot of sharing of lead vocals for them.
The Wallflowers are listed on Wikipedia as having achieved at least 5 million albums sold.
