* John Rich was originally a Type B in Music/{{Lonestar}}, where he traded lead vocals with Richie [=McDonald=]. Lonestar has not had an official bassist since Rich was fired in 1998; several different bassists have backed them on the road without being counted as official members, and they usually use a session musician in the studio. Although Rich no longer plays bass, he has become a Type C for his work as one-half of Big & Rich, as well as several songwriting and production credits.

* Rodrigo González from German punk rock band ''Die Ärzte'' who is both type A and B. This is justified since all three members write and sing their own songs (Rod plays guitar while singing his). Farin Urlaub and Bela B. - the founding members - also like to point out that he is a virtuoso bassist. But the thing Rod is probably best known for is sitting hours at a time during interwiews and [[SilentPartner not say a single word]].

* [[MindlessSelfIndulgence Lyn-Z Way]]: Type C. Her marriage to [[Music/MyChemicalRomance Gerard Way]] has overshadowed her abilities as a bassist to the point that "fans" often show up to her band's shows only to see if her husband is there.
