When does the SINGING lead tone emerge?

Is there any credible singing lead tone before Jeff Beck and Eric Clapton of any real note?

I don't mean buzzy distortion or growling guitar like Link Wray and others but gain used for a more singing lead tone (like early Beck and Clapton did for example)

Who were the first guys to do this and preferably do it well?

Thanks!

Its origin was the sound of nails getting hammered through the flesh of Jesus.
Upon this sound, the sky seperated and Wotan the Father came riding on Sleipnir down from Valhalla, handing a hammer to a soldier, and his words wereth heard all over the world: "YOU HAVE UNLOCKED LEVEL 2! USE THIS HAMMER, TO CRUSH YOUR ENEMIES IN RYTHM, MAKE THEM SING IN PAIN!".
The soldier took the hammer, and felt immediately the unbending POWER running through his veins.
No one knew that day, that the world will never be the same again.
On this day, Heavy Metal was born.



No, seriously, I have no idea.

Aside from Jeff Beck, the guys I think of as really vocal-sounding all hit it in the 70s. Brian May, Santana...

The first real use of singing overdrive was in Chicago, with the advent of melodic distortion and controlled feedback from artists such as Howlin' Wolf and Muddy Waters.


Then you had the British Blues invasion with Jeff Beck, Clapton, Paul Butterfield, and Peter Green.

The American 60's rock movement brought Jimi Hendrix and later, ZZ Top, et al that sealed the deal.

No, but I prefer threads to be about "humor" in general. Not exactly mine, or my strange sense of it.
