    10cc carried on after Lol & Creme went their own way.

    Adam and the Ants became just Adam Ant after the formation of Bow Wow Wow.

    English Beat split into General Public and Fine Young Cannibals.

    UK and Bruford (the latter did exist for one album prior to the departure if Bruford and Holdsworth).

    Must be several other examples?

    Two of the four members of Panic at the Disco split off to form The Young Veins, but that group had a couple of other members too so maybe it doesn't count.

    The same objection may apply to when Duran Duran temporarily divided into constituents of Arcadia and the Power Station.

    There are probably more examples of two bands that combined to make one band.
    This is a tough one.

    Yes didn't so much split as send out delayed-release spores, with ABWH in 1989 and again with ARW a few years ago. Neither of those variants consisted mostly of people who had just left Yes - it was Anderson plus people who had been gone for a while.

    I think Saxon could qualify, guitarist Graham Oliver and bassist Steve Dawson parted ways with the group and formed their own group now called Oliver/Dawson Saxon while singer Biff Byford and guitarist Paul Quinn remained with the original group under the name Saxon.

    The Stills-Young Band and Crosby & Nash

    (which is different only as a matter of degree from citing the solo careers of Paul Simon and Art Garfunkel)

    Marriott wanted to recruit Frampton into the Small Faces.
    The other three disagreed. Marriott left to form Humble Pie with Frampton and the Faces dropped the Small and recruited Rod and Ronnie, to replace Steve.

    If that counts, then consider that Jay and the Americans carried on after Walter Becker and Donald Fagen peeled off to form Steely Dan.
