Personnel changes in bands

All non-Smiths music chat goes here.

Postby Cracked Pleasures » Thu Jul 13, 2006 8:42 pm

In long-existing bands, we often see that certain band members get replaced by new faces.

A few examples:
- no band swapped personnel more than BLACK SABBATH. With Ozzy, Dio, Ian Gillen and a few short-termers, the band has had 5 people alone on vocals + a lot of instrumentalists.
- metal bands seem to very frequently swap staff: also IRON MAIDEN, MOTORHEAD (only Lemmy on vocals is a constant member), JUDAS PRIEST (Rob Halford was temporarily replaced by Jesse Owens who used to sing in a Judas Priest cover band), MAYHEM (half of the original line-up is dead), AC/DC and MARILYN MANSON replaced staff numerous times
- French cult band INDOCHINE saw several personnel changes, only singer Nicola Sirkis remains from the original line-up
- THE WHO only has 50% of their original line-up left: Pete Townshend and Roger Daltrey. Keith Moon and Entwistle both died and got replaced
- INXS searched the replacement for Michael Hutchence through a talent show on TV
- With Peter Gabriel on vocals, GENESIS was a psychedelic rock band. When Phil Collins took control of the vocals, the band turned into a mainstream act.
- punk pioneers THE DAMNED employed almost 20 musicians in the history of the band, singer David Vanian being the only original member who never left the band
- ...

The only big bands that existed quite long (> 10 years) without personnel changes that I can think of, are ABBA, The Beatles, U2 (25 years with the same line-up !!)




What do you think are the best and worst replacements in music history?



as for worst, it's an easy one for me: Echo & The Bunnymen without Ian McCulloch. I have nothing against Noel Burke, who replaced him on one album after Ian left the band, but without my idol Ian I cannot consider the record to be Echo & The Bunnymen. Luckily the new line-up was limited success and released only one album until Ian re-joined them...

also, I think Black Sabbath without Ozzy on vocals is not really Sabbath. Again, objectively seen the replacements did a good job (mainly Dio gained a cult status through the band) but it just doesn't feel right to see a different vocalist for Black Sabbath.

as for good ones... a harder one to think of,
Keep it flaming your desire, always rising higher - Aim for stars and hit the sky
(Echo & The Bunnymen - Evergreen, 1996)

Mike Patton replacing Chuck Mosley
John Frusciante "replacing" Hillel Slovak (R.I.P. :( )
Dave Grohl replacing Chad Channing (Yeah I looked that up)

Those were important steps

Yes I do, I think he lifted the band to do great things. I think you see that when you look at the periods with or without him in the band. But it's a sad replacement, he wouldn't be there if Hillel was still alive. With him they would have gone on to do other great thing I'm sure. But it would have been a different band.

I think what I'm trying to say is that they recruited someone who later turned out to be the biggest talent in the band. Same goes for Mike Patton.
