    Journey,the philipino singer. Foreigner,some new guy,Chicago, no Peter Cetera,Roger Hofgson,Supertramp,splintered. Then theres Roger Waters,no Pink Floyd. Dennis De Young,then theirs Styx,with gowan singing. There are plenty more. I am jus sick of these watered down groups coming to town,and we have to listen to replacement singers.

    There are currently two Black Flags on tour. One of them kept the name and the other is just called Flag. Neither of them has Henry Rollins.

    Theres a big market for these over the hill bands. They can`t sell records anymore,so its their main source of income. Saw Simple Minds last night.Original singer and guitarist, so pretty close to original band,

    right, but they don't need the original members to tap into it.

    original lineup or not, seeing a band 10,20 or 30 years past their prime it immediately a sub optimal experience for me.

    But they were at their most popular with Rollins in the band. My fave era of Black Flag is the Keith Morris era.[​IMG]

    I begrudgingly agree, 82-84 hole and the 2 guitar My War bootleg/demo is my favorite

    that said I have 0 desire to see Black Flag with Rollins nowadays

    The Rollins Band records with Chris Haskett are the best thing musically Hank ever did by far. I never got Black Flag.
    There are 2 Queensryches now, which kills me but I will say that The Misfits with Michael Graves were awesome

    With the exception of Pink Floyd, every band you mentioned sucked regardless of who was singing. Add to it the fact that they're all pushing 70, and who really gives a shit what they do?
