Popular bands that have never had any line-up changes


Recommended Posts

I was reading about the singer of Night By Night leaving the band and recently the singer of Crashdiet left. I swear 75% of my favorite bands have changed their lead singer at one point or another.

 

Is there a popular band or a classic band that has all it's original members or that no member has left at one point in the band's existence?

 

 

Not trying to be stupid, but off the top of my head Steel Panther was the first band I thought of.

Very cool topic of discussion.

 

And I have been thinking hard about this and I really don't have any band in mind that hasn't had at least one line-up change.

Close.

 

Bassist Tim Gaines did not participate in the recording of To Hell with the Devil, and for a short period of time prior to the release of the record he was replaced by Matt Hurich. Hurich was not with the band more than a month, although he was outfitted with a yellow and black striped bass and a racing costume. Brad Cobb played bass on the album.

TORA TORA? Hardly call them popular, but I'll take it. So far we have two. There has to be more.

I think AEROSMITH and RUSH too

 

according to wikipaedia... re: Aerosmith

"However, drug addiction and internal conflict took their toll on the band, which resulted in the departures of Perry and Whitford in 1979 and 1981, respectively; they were replaced by Jimmy Crespo and Rick Dufay"

John Rutsey played drums on the first Rush album ...

 

Richie Supa and Jimmy Crespo both played on 'Night In The Ruts' instead of Joe Perry; Rick Dufay replaced Brad Whitford for 'Rock In A Hard Place' ...

Led Zeppelin

 

Messrs Plant, Page and Jones have played as Zeppelin with Jason Bonham on drums - does that count as a change? Or are we only taking about recording line-ups?

The Beatles didn't change their line up for the whole of their recording career ... Pete Best and Stuart Sutcliffe left/were fired before their first album was released.

With regard to the one change, the four core guys in Bon Jovi were together for a billion years. Not sure what's happening there now (did Sambora get kicked out?) but aside from the bass player, they've had the same line-up forever.

 

And Pink Cream 69. Their only change ever was from Deris to Readman.

The Police kept hold of the same three members throughout their time with A&M - their original guitarist, Henry Padovani, appears on their debut single, but was ousted after Andy Summers joined the band (and before their debut album was recorded.)

 

They were only together for 8 years, but they were ALWAYS on the radio when I was growing up :)

It depends if you believe the conspiracies or not....

Depends on whether you are talking under the SP moniker or all their various names over the years.

While its been the same four guys through Metal Shop, Metal Skool and Steel Panther names, there was a different drummer in their Danger Kitty guise.

    • Yeah, at the moment he's the only option for me here. A few guys I'm not really interested in and although EM was everywhere a few years ago, he definitely appears to have settled down recently. If anything, wouldn't mind seeing his name pop up a little more these days, though it's fine as is. 
    • I've been a bit let down by recent albums but the genuine anticipation I feel for new material from these guys means they must have done something right through the years. Would absolutely love it if they unexpectedly hit another homerun. 
    • Classless Act - Welcome to the Show Out of This World - Out of This World Within Temptation - The Unforgiving  The Black Sorrows - The Chosen Ones Horsehead - Onism i-TEN - Taking a Cold Look (Rock Candy remaster) Touch - Touch (Rock Candy remaster) Spys - Spys/Behind Enemy Lines (Renaissance double album reissue)

    • I have no real opinion on the band's schtick. I do have an opinion on their earlier albums - they contained a lot of good songs. The last few... not so. Hope they can pull something out here but expectations aren't high
    • There’s bound to be an ADV fan somewhere 😂
