This Weekend I’ll Mostly Be Listening to… Bands with 2 versions on the go August 27, 2016

There was a piece in The Guardian about bands that split in half SLF, Yes and UB40 are mentioned there but of course there are others. Boney M at one stage had more than 2 versions going. There were two versions of the Wolfetones touring, Queensryche are another band that had two versions going. Black Flag had two versions going for a period. There were numerous versions of Hawkwind, Faust, Barclay James Harvest, The Beach Boys. Naturally there were all sorts of court cases over which version of the various bands had the right to use the Original name….. and it cost many of them a fortune too.

Always amused by the two versions of Queensryche. Hawkwind not so much.🙂 Didn’t know that about Black Flag! There’s also been sort of two versions of the Damned at times too.
