Just about every famous band has featured a lineup switch at some point. Even Rush, whose lineup has been static for 39 years, had a different drummer for their first album. But every now and then we see a band whose lineup gradually erodes. The switches pile-up until, one day, the longest-serving member joined a decade after the band originally formed.
It's crazy to think that any band could continue after that. After all, if you saw them before and after, you'd be seeing two entirely different bands with the same name. Nevertheless, it does happen because the legal ownership of band names can be a weird, tumultuous thing to even think about.
Plus, there's still money to be made off those band names. These are ten you might want to think about before you decide to buy tickets to see them next time around.
