    Although I still enjoy a lot of R.E.M.'s later material, there was a big drop off after Bill Berry left.
  8. As soon as I saw the thread title I made a mental bet with myself that someone would say Pete Best within the first three reply-posts. I win !

    Kansas when Steve Walsh left. Vinyl Confessions had a couple of nice tracks, but it had their worst-ever leadoff single and wasn't even close to earlier heights. The band actually fit Elefante's voice better with the more AOR-oriented Drastic Measures.
