William Whitfield "Whit" Crane IV (born January 19, 1968) is a founding member and lead singer of the rock band Ugly Kid Joe, which formed in 1989 and disbanded in 1997, reforming in 2010.
During Ugly Kid Joe's inactivity, Crane went on a year-long tour with New York hard rock band Life of Agony before forming Medication with ex-Machine Head guitarist, Logan Mader. Due to a series of internal issues, Medication disbanded in February 2003.
Over the years, Crane has performed guest vocals on several songs, including Reaching Out by Mark McGrath of Sugar Ray (from the Lynn Strait tribute album Strait Up), Born to Raise Hell by Motörhead (also featuring rapper Ice-T) and Voodoo Brother by Glenn Tipton of Judas Priest.
Crane's filmography includes Ellie Parker, in which he has a cameo appearance as an acting student, and Motörhead's 25 & Alive: Boneshaker, where he appears as himself.
In 2006, former Ugly Kid Joe bandmate Shannon Larkin asked Crane to join a side project he formed with members of Godsmack (minus Sully Erna) called Another Animal, as primary vocalist. Crane accepted, and the band released its self-titled debut album in 2007. In support of their debut, the band went out on tour, opening for labelmates Alter Bridge. However, they have suffered poor record sales, and the future of the band is currently unknown.
In 2011, he performed with metal tribute band Hail! in Istanbul, Turkey. He still makes regular appearances with Motörhead - the latest being at the O2 Academy, Glasgow on the 9th November 2012 singing Killed By Death.
