The Jewel Case: Frontman Takes Five (09.13.18)

Sep 14, 2018

This week's theme? Glad you asked: "FRONTMAN TAKES FIVE"- we'll be taking a look at songs where the regular lead singer steps back from the mic and lets another band member have a moment in the spotlight. Sometimes there's a good reason why the bass player doesn't get a mic, but there are other examples when the song becomes the band's biggest hit. We'll be hearing both sides of the spectrum, and it's gonna be a hoot. Ringo wants YOU to be there. You don't want to disappoint Ringo, do you?
