    Why don't we give the back up DANCERS some credit, too? I mean, the stage show wouldn't be complete without them, would it?

    Backup is exactly that ... BACK - UP!

    And it's not the backup singers that make these talentless hacks sound good ... it's the PRODUCER on the mixing boards.

    all the commonly used suspects were listed. one extra to characteristic: Alice in Chains' new singer is black. there is also Hed P.E. And the undesirable Brains were between the founders of the hardcore scene, the entire band became black. 24/7 Spyz is an all black metallic-ish band. And body count number turned right into a metallic band fronted by Ice-T. ok, some human beings beat me to Alice in Chains, 24/7 Spyz, and undesirable Brains. Candiria is fronted by a black guy besides.

    Because they the reason you listen to the music. Because they aren't as talented, or else they would be the lead singer.

    the lead singer is louder than the back up singers so the lead singer is more noticeable.

    because they're in the backround. if ya want more attention then the lead singer, kick him out of the band.
