  1. (music) The lead singer of a band
    • 1988 March 4, Renaldo Migaldi, “Fetchin Bones”, in Chicago Reader[1]:
      It's rock and roll, a frenetic chock-a-block pulse dressed up in fuzzy guitar, all of which functions as a perfect setting in which Fetchin Bones' frontperson and secret weapon, Hope Nicholls, can gyrate and snarl in a manner that suggests a cross between Patti Smith and Janis Joplin.
