6. Lead singers are tough to replace because so many times that Singer defines the band

Sure Jimmy Page could put an album out using Plant-Wannabe David Coverdale but in the end Coverdale never had that charisma that Robert Plant brought to the stage.

And I know for some of these aging bands hoping to make a few more dollars out of their name, the show must go on. So if the lead singer isn't available or can't tour then what better way to solve the issue than to do a Judas Priest - find a lead singer from a tribuate band that does your music and have them replace the lead singer. Sure it was good when Yes needed a fill-in for Jon Anderson after Anderson had life threatening illness. But what sucked was that Anderson recovered, his voice was amazing as ever but Yes stuck with the tribute band singer.

So to be honest I have no viable answer for this question. Other members can be replaced for the better but the lead singer will always be tough shoes to fill.
