A friend of mine and I were talking about htis the other day. trying to think what group has had the most members pass through it over it's history. It's kinda of a subjective question with alot of variables. Were they an official memeber, just filling in, recorded only etc...
A few bands came to mind,Rainbow,Jethro Tull,Santana. I dont know how accurate all of this is, I am sure there are some people missing, because I am not sure what constituted being a member of a band when these list were formed.

How about the list of people who have played for Frank Zappa. The list is to long for copy and paste.

That's quite a list. I'm not a big liner-not reader, and under the "take it or leave it" column, there's definitely some Zappa I can leave, so I'm not all that familiar with some of the albums.

Anyway, Clapton? I hadn't realized that. And I knew about Terry Bozzio, of course, but didn't realize Dale played with him too . . . would she have been "the charming Mary, from Canoga Park?"

Droogie, you didn't know that Dale played with Frank???

Wow.


Dale is Mary, and did the fantastic "Music" monologue.

I don't have the numbers in front of me but I'm pretty sure Parliament/Funkadelic takes the most members title....

How about Russ Freeman's band, The Rippington's? He decided the only way never to have the band break up was never to use the same lineup, and over a quarter of a century about about two dozen releases he pretty much has one stellar lineup after another.

I don't know if this really applies, but in the 70s and 80s Chuck Berry would hire new local musicians as his back up band for each gig. Apparently there were times he wouldn't rehearse with the new guys behind him, he would just start up the song, and make the musicians keep up with him.

Without doing the research, I would assume Mayall's Bluesbreakers have had a hell of a lot of lineups.

Not that they were around for a long time, but Barefoot Jerry was never able to keep the same line-up for more than 7 shows. I saw them a dozen times and there was always a new player.
