Thread: Key non-original members of Legendary or classic bands

hotlantatim - 10/21/2010 at 02:55 AM

Watching some stuff on youtube, got me thinking about non-original members of classic bands that made a huge mark on those group. Love to hear some of your favorite non-original members from established bands....the ones who helped them make some of their best music.

For me in the Allman Brothers, I think of Warren Haynes & Chuck Leavell as the most important non-originals. Chuck's tenure was short but made a huge impact on the band while releasing some of their most memorable & highest charting material. Warren has helped them stay relevant over the last 20 years recording some of my alltime favorite ABB tracks.

Some others:
Steve Gaines - Skynryd
Ronnie James Dio - Sabbath
Steve Howe - Yes
Ritchie Blackmore - Deep Purple [DOH! meant Roger Glover who may fit the bill in Rainbow too]
Lindsey Buckingham - Fleetwood Mac

Next...

Yeah, I meant after they were established. Yeah, many bands had rotating members before their first album or before anyone heard of them.

Okay, maybe not. But he certainly contributed to each. The piano solo on "Get Back", the 1975 Stones "tour of the Americas". Yeah, I'm throwin' him a bone, but I believe both he and George Martin deserve props for their work. Just trying to broaden the scope of the thread!

Although Brewer isn't listed as a member of the SBB on bobseger.com, he does tour with the SBB, and played with Bob when he was inducted into the RRHOF. Here's a pic of Bob with Don on drums from Bob's Facebook page.

I'll agree that the Rabin-era Yes music has not stood the test of time too well. There are a few tracks from the Rabin lineup that are among my favorite Yes tunes, namely, It Can Happen, Changes and The Calling.

I saw them on the 90210 tour and the Union tour and he impressed at both. He's a heck of a guitarist but his studio style and production were too 80s.

David Clayton-Thomas (Blood Sweat & Tears)- Joined in 1968 after Al Kooper left and sang all the hits.

Martin Barre (Jethro Tull)- Replaced Mick Abrahams in early 1969 and has been in the band ever since.

Gram Parsons (Byrds)- Joined in 1968 and quit in 1968 but his six month tenure changed music permanently.

Norton Buffalo (Steve Miller Band)- A colorful member of the band played harmonica

Bowzer (Sha Na Na)- He was not at Woodstock because he joined in 1970. Became the most recognized and famous member.

Frank Sampedro replaced Danny Whitten NEIL YOUNG & CRAZY HORSE circ. 1973 and has been there ever since.

Tom Coster replaced Gregg Rollie on keyboards in SANTANA circ. 1972. Was the band's musical director and Carlos' right hand man for a few years. Like every other member he eventually left.

Bruce Johnston joined the Beach Boys after Brian Wilson went off the deep end circ. 1967. I believe he is still an active member today.

Rick Grech joined TRAFFIC during the John Barleycorn tour in 1970 and remained in the band for a few years. Jim Gordon of Derek & The Dominoes eventually joined too.

Jim Messina joined the BUFFALO SPRINGFIELD though rather late in their two year career but was on hand for the recording of their final LP. Jim will be present for the Springfield's upcoming reunion show.

Erik Brahn joined IRON BUTTERFLY in 1968 following the release of the debut album, but was on hand for their most famous track "In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida."

I have read differently. Jeff Lynne joined the Move and then they decided to start the ELO concept. One way or another Jeff Lynne was a founding member of ELO from the very beginning.
