Bassist/vocalist Richard Page of Mr. Mister.

Page has also done the Ringo Starr & His All-Starr Band tours.

I heard somewhere that Ringo Starr hires All-Starr Band musicians to perform live in the group if they've had big hit songs.

Both "Broken Wings" and "Kyrie" by Mr. Mister were number 1 hit songs in North America.

Bassist/vocalist Hamish Stuart of The Average White Band with "Pick Up The Pieces" and "Cut The Cake".

Bassist/vocalist Graham Gouldman of 10cc with "The Things We Do for Love" and "I'm Not In Love".

Some really good ones on there.  But it's not close.

And Geddy wouldn't have changed the analysis.

Well, I didn't really count backup singers into the mix, and I know Squire has probably done lead vocals, but he wasn't the lead singer of the band he's known most for.
