Top 5 On Friday - Week 226

This week's topic came from Russ

Top 5 band members that are neither the lead singer or the lead guitarist. (feel free to tell us why you chose them too!)

1. Keith Moon of The Who- A great combination of skill and showmanship.

2. Clarence Clemons of Bruce Springsteen & the E Street Band- In addition to his wailing sax, Clarence is arguably the heart and soul of the E Streeters.

3. Michael Steele of The Bangles- Along with her musicianship and songwriting skills, I also like Michael's wry sense of humor (which she displayed in the Behind the Music episode on The Bangles)

4. Jerome Benton of The Time- The best mirror holder in the biz!

5. Valerie Smith of Josie & the Pussycats- She played the meanest tambourine this side of Davy Jones!

I like your nods to the ladies. Michael Steele also had some great vocals for the band too.
