    They seem to be popping up at clubs and state fairs nationwide....

    Steppenwolf with John Kay.

    Brian Howe and Bad Company with the original drummer maybe.

    The Yardbirds minus Page, Beck, Clapton, and Relf.

    Marshall Tucker minus all but 1 original member.

    Lynyrd Skynyrd....well....I'm not touching on that one...

    Journey minus Steve Perry

    ...ah, the glory days!

    And let's don't talk about The touring version of The Beach Boys....how can you have The Beach Boys with no Wilsons?

    LMFAO! :D

    To be honest... could it a better gig than playing with Status Quo? :D

    Reminds me of a joke from The Simpsons, where they had a poster for a concert of some kind - in big letters, they had the main act as a Moody Blues tribute band, and then underneath in small letters, the supporting act were The Moody Blues :D

    I went out with friends one night to see and Australisn artist named Ian Moss. His band "Cold Chisel" were HUGE in Australia. There would have been maybe 30 people in the room.

    At the pub around the corner and within walking distance, a "Cold Chisel" cover band were playing to a packed pub of 300 people.
     
  11. King Crimson's only original member if Robert Fripp (Who is right now thinking about quitting...)

    Opeth doesn't have any original members. Not like it matters much.
     
  14. Aren't Captain Beefheart and His Magic Band touring without Captain Beefheart? :confused:
     
  15. Canadian icons April Wine are still touring North America, and although the current lineup includes guys who were all with them at some point in their heyday (70's and early 80's), only Myles Goodwin is an original member.

    Traffic - You'll have to take this one up with the big guy upstairs!

    Temptations - Same deal. Also they filed a suit against Dennis Edwards, so he can't use the name or even say "Formally of...."
