Continuing a grand TDPRI tradition of taking one Bad Dog thread and turning it upside down in another... What bands have replaced band members (due to everything from "creative differences" to unfortunate death) with 'just as good' or better folks? My picks: #1: Voivod. Denis "Piggy" D'Amour's untimely death at 45 from colon cancer left a void in the band that seemed impossible to fill. Enter Daniel "Chewy" Mongrain. #2: Iron Maiden. As enjoyable a vocalist as Paul Di'Anno was, Bruce Dickinson absolutely MADE the band for everything afterwards (except for that brief, forgettable stint with Blaze Bayley). Got any more?
