A spinoff from the other thread. Typically seen on the nostalgia circuit, these are bands who tour and/or record despite having only one or sometimes NO original members. I can't help but feel- except in the case of openly revolving-door bands and bands which revolve around a frontman- that it's nothing but a cashgrab. Why else have there been bands touring as T. Rex when Marc Bolan, who practically WAS the band, died 40 years ago? Nobody thinks of T. Rex and sees a drummer from a later lineup and a bunch of little-known musicians. It's somehow even worse for lesser-known bands- the average person in the street may know the name and a couple of their hits, but not know the members. How are they supposed to know that this band they're seeing lack most or all of their original members? There's been speculation for a while now that Kiss may soon be playing with no original members. I KNOW they're playing characters but it's bad enough seeing people other than Ace Frehley and Peter Criss playing the Spaceman and the Cat, I couldn't imagine anyone else apart from Paul Stanley and Gene Simmons as the Starchild and Demon. I know Paul's voice is shot to pieces now, but why doesn't he just call it a day without embarrassing himself and the millions of Kiss fans out there? So discuss, list more examples etc.
