Martin Turner is was the lead singer/bassist for Wishbone Ash from 1969-1980 and again from 1988-1991, and is currently the lead singer for his own incarnation of the band, Martin Turner's Wishbone Ash. Turner has an interesting voice, possessing a very tenorish upper range, and a baritone-sounding lower range, yet I've yet to hear him go below the lower 3rd octave. However, he does have some effortless high notes in many WB songs, and even shows off some falsetto scat singing in "Handy," which is fun to listen to. I saw him last summer, and while his higher singing isn't as strong as it once was, he still is a pretty good singer. And he's also a wicked bassist.
