Can you name any bands that have been together at least 25 years and have NEVER had a lineup change. The bands must be in original form from their debut album and never had any personel change over the years. I wouldn't count bands like Cream, Led Zep, or the Police because they were never actually together for 25 years.

The only ones I could come up with are:

Cheap Trick
U2
ZZ Top

I was tempted to add Zebra, but they occasionally use a substitute drummer when Guy Gelso can't make a gig.

I thought Theodore left for three years to study with the Dali Llama.

Also don't forget Alvin's time in rehab for that poppy seed addiction.

Nope. The current lineup has been together for 34 years, but Neil Peart did not play on their debut record. John Rutsy was their original drummer.

I forgot that Alvin Messiah period. I stand corrected. As for his poppy seed addiction, I will leave that as his private business but i will say that it was his most productive period.

No they have replaced Tommy Skeoch who came and went a few times. Dave Rude replaced him in the band.

Well, U2 is definitely one of the only ones I can think of. But it would be interesting to see what bands haven't had any lineup changes even if they weren't together for very long.

I mean Rush has been the same since about 74 or 75. John Rutsey didn't last too long.

The Police was originally Sting, Stewart Copeland and a guy named Henry Padovani. So they couldn't even count... IF you want to be technical that was the lineup on their first single. There are lots of bands that had lineup changes before they made it. Like The Beatles with Pete Best.

Then there are also bands who like R.E.M. who had the same lineup for several years, and then Bill Berry left for health reasons, they never replaced them, I believe they just had a stand in live drummer, but I hear Bill's back now... I don't remember what year he left, but I bet they had close to 20 years with the same 4 guys.

I'd love to hear more from others.

I know they had a drummer die in the 70's, so they must of had changes.

Remember Joe Perry left in the '80s for a while and the band recorded "Rock in a Hard Place." I saw Aerosmith on that tour and it was truely one of the worst concerts ever.

Nope. I just bought a "Best of" CD of theirs and this is from the liner notes:

Coming together on an extremely hot southern Sunday afternoon in June 1962, in one permutation or another guitarist Stever Cropper, keyboardist Booker T. Jones and drummer Al Jackson, Jr., first with bassist Lewie Steinberg and from 1964 forward with Donald "Duck" Dunn, ended up playing on 95% of the recordings issued by Stax and its Volt and Chalice subsidiaries through 1969.

Red Hot Chili Peppers original Lead Guitarist Hillel Slovak died of a drug overdose...he was on the first few albums

"Hillel and Anthony developed serious heroin habits early in their careers that ultimately led to Hillel's death. During the European tour supporting The Uplift Mofo Party Plan album, suspicions of his drug problems began to haunt the band. Hillel was temporarily fired for his drug use. Unfortunately, these suspicions came to public light when Hillel relapsed, resulting in erratic behavior and botched performances. Slovak was found dead of a Speedball overdose on June 25, 1988, shortly after the band returned from the Europe tour. He was twenty-six years old. Hillel is interred at Mount Sinai Memorial Park Cemetery in Hollywood Hills, California."

Pearl Jam Changed Drummers after a couple of CD's
