A new lineup? Or false advertising?
On August 13, Guns N' Roses take the stage for their first U.S. concert in four years at the annual biker blowout in Sturgis, South Dakota. It's not much of a wait, if you consider the fact that GNR fans waited 15 years for the anticlimactic "Chinese Democracy," the band's first full-length since their also-uneven 1993 effort, "The Spaghetti Incident." But GNR noobs beware: The only original member left from the band's classic “Appetite for Destruction” lineup is vocalist Axl Rose. Everyone else—Slash, Dizzy, Duff, Adler—is gonzo.
GNR is hardly alone in their continued use of a band name that has little to do with their current lineup. Here are 10 bands still touring with only one original member—or in some cases, no original members at all. Click through it and let us know if it's worth it to buy a ticket, or if it's a sonic rip-off.—Scott Thill, Special to Metromix
