Sometimes, a band can survive their entire career without a line-up change...looking at you Radiohead, Coldplay, U2....others have members leave, hello Oasis, or get kicked out. See The Clash.
Meanwhile some bands just decide that it's time to pack it in. Call it a day. Stop the train and get off. There could be any number of reasons for this; you grow apart, you don't have anything else to say, you can't stand each other anymore...that sort of thing.
And when a band does break up, many fans ask the same question: "So when are you getting back together?!?!"
And many times band do! For a variety of reasons...and many reasons that come back to money.
Anyhow, this is the first of a series we did a number of years ago on bands that had reunited.
Now something to note about this series.
Some bands have since broken apart again or gone off in an entirely different direction.
And some are no longer together because a member has since passed on.
This is "The Reunions: Part 1"
