I'll probably get a yellow card for this but in the early years Alice Cooper was the name of the band not the lead singer (Vince Furnier). Having said that, as a band I suppose you could argue that it should have gone in the As!

Vince later took the name as his own hence why I've gone for an early record.

Errm, I'm not handing out yellow cards (and they're not my rules anyway) but is that a band or a person?

She is a singer, but with a decent vocal talent (apparently she can sing an octave higher than they write for!).

A personal favourite of mine where I think that the cover version is better than the original: Cliff Bennett and the Rebel Rousers - Got To Get You Into My Life

Stretching the definition of a band here but I'm confidant it's a valid choice. Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young - Teach Your Children

A similar stretch of the definition but there was a (rotating) band of musicians behind Arthur. The Crazy World of Arthur Brown - Fire

Talked yourself into this one Paul (it should have been in the "A"s), but as it is a great track I'll make it half a yellow card!!! :-D
