Who was the lead singer in these popular Sixties rock bands?

Do you know your 1960s music from the Stones to the Shondells to the Spoonful?

There are many who say rock & roll peaked in the 1960s. We can understand the sentiment. A classic album arrived seemingly every week and new frontiers were explored in guitar pop.

There were colorful characters, too, from guys dressed up in Revolutionary War uniforms to sharp-dressed singers in suits. It wasn't always about the front person, either. Some bands were named for their drummer or keyboardist. That's a hint.

Let's see if you can remember the singers from these popular Sixties bands. If you lived through the era, there's a good chance you had them on your wall. Good luck!

Hi, guys. It's good to be back on this site and taking quizzes again. As you can see from my scoring from this quiz, I'm a little rusty from not doing any quizzes on here for a long time now. Otherwise, I would have done a whole lot better. I thought that "Googling" the questions on "GOOGLE", I would get them all right, but I got #'s 5, 13 and 14 wrong. The answers I got from "GOOGLE" told me one thing and it was a totally different answer on here. For instance, on #5, I chose "Dave Davies", and it was actually "Ray Davies". And on 13, I logically thought that "Paul Revere" was the lead singer, but it was in fact "Mark Lindsey". Same with 14. Instead of "Manfred Mann" being the leader of the group, it was actually "Paul Jones". Go figure.

where are the monkees?
The Monkees were not a "regular" band. PT, MN, MD and DJ did meet up someplace and decide to form a band. {Like the Stones, The Byrds The Beatles, The Animals, The Turtles, Paul Revere & The Raiders The Doors, etc.} The 4 were brought together to form a fictitious band for television. The band was spun off from the tv show. Without the show, chances were slim and none that the 4 would have met up. Peter & Mike might have, since they both were traveling the music circuit, but Davy and Micky being performers first, {music was a secondary gig, even though Davy had recorded an lp;} music was not their top priority and only means of support, as performers. Of course, the opposite is true for P&M, they had never acted before, and music was their sole means of support.
That first sentence should read: "...they didn't meet up someplace..."

Also, three Monkees often sang lead. Only poor Peter was limited, but has a few good moments. (Excluding reunion albums, "Auntie Grizelda," "Shades of Gray," and a couple of tracks on "Head" spring to mind.)
He also "dueted" w/Micky on "Words." "Wrote and sang "Do I have To Do This All Over Again,?" "Can You Dig It?" are the two Head tracks you were thinking about. You're right harlow1313, "Poor Peter. He was The Monkees version of Ringo.
