    This is not for lead singers who have fronted multiple bands, but artists whose NAME has fronted the band. Solo projects more than welcomed, as long as they've also had their name attached to a different album.

    For example:

    Bob Seger-
    Bob Seger System
    Bob Seger
    Bob Seger & The Silver Bullet Band

    + Jimmy James and the Blue Flames, if using a stage name counts, I don't know if it does.

    He's been billed as Bob Dylan and His Band for a while, so that could be one.
