How Many Original Members Are In Your Favorite Band?

It’s funny how people wanted to debate “how many original members” were in Guns N’ Roses.  Are they talking about Traci Guns (who the band was partially named after)?  What about Ole Beitch?  They were both original members.  Oh, you’re talking about what YOU think are original members.  Well that group was together about ten years.  At this point most of the current members have been in GNR longer than Slash.  More after the jump.


I guess if you want to get down to brass tacks, this version of GNR has two original members, Axl Rose and Dizzy Reed (original keyboardist).  Not enough “original members for ya”.  Well, then you can’t go see Shinedown, Alice In Chains, Puddle Of Mudd, Chevelle, Buckcherry, Slayer, Megadeth or 3 Days Grace.  They’re all down to two members.  Three Doors Down seems headed the same way.  Whoopsie.  I forgot a big one.  Metallica only has two original members. Volbeat is down to three. I could literally go on for DAYS.

At the end of the day, what matters is “does the current band play the songs I know and love the way I remember them?”.  That’s about it.  If you want to go see bands that only have “all the original members”, then you’re going to spend a lot of lonely nights at home.
