Are there any ?
Ready ? Go !!
Belle and Sebastian
Bay City Rollers
+ every scottish and welsh band ever.
although Mercury got British citizenship before he formed Queen.
get your woad on marginalised UK nations, it's WAR.
Are there any successful bands based in the UK with Italians , Spaniards , German or any other origin apart from English, Scottish or Welsh lead singers ?
but what do you mean by "successful"?
for MEGA successful bands/artists I can think of a couple of singers born abroad in places like South Africa and Indian but I don't think you want to hear about Cliff do you?
Ash? (Not actually sure about that one)
and by the way by "successful" I meant bands who are signed to a decent label , playing good venues etc.
and they would be a NYC band...
If Antony & the Johnsons can be classed as British then so can Interpol dammit.
as frank turner was born in bahrain...
same for Frank Turner
Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds
is the best example surely...
Or was she Scottish?
I was thinking it might be the other way around.
Cant believe no one's mentioned that one yet......unless I'm wrong (likely)
only one i could think of
they are based in liverpool
but have two singers
one is Bulgarian born Mira Aroyo
at a stretch...
The Pretenders , I think you're right , I think Chrissie Hynde is American
more more more !!
Haha jokes....great minds all that
