Thread Name: Deep voice vs falsetto
Subject: RE: Deep voice vs falsetto
Pop music is most R&B /Jazz-based, and the lead vocals have to be light, they have to bounce off the beat, and they have to cut through, all of which are difficult to manage with a full chest deep voice--Add to that the fact that the full bass voice takes a while to mature--whereas, the kids(who, let's face it) drive the pop music market like the younger performers--

Rock and Pop harmony groups do use bass(though it's not a full chest voice), and let's not forget that Elvis and Jim Morrison sang in the Baritone range--so it is out there--
