Craig Adams left and re-joined the Mission.

I can't remember his name but the original bassist is back with Ratt... problematic in that I am now the one who has publicly raised this!

 

Juan Croucier. He was in an early formation of Dokken before he joined Ratt in the early 80's...

I'll include myself in this category - was once kicked out of my own band over some petty squabble I can't even recall entirely.

I only found out I'd been sacked at a meeting to discuss my reinstatement some weeks later.

I missed about half a dozen gigs while another mate got brought in to cover.

World managed to keep on turning though luckily eh.

Glen Matlock? Sacked by the Sex Pistols in early 1977, rejoined in 1996 for the Filthy Lucre reunion tour as his replacement Sid Vicious was somewhat unavailable having died in February 1979.

I think he was also considered as a hired hand on NMTB??? In the end Steve Jones recorded the bass, I think simplifying the parts a bit from what Matlock had.

Around the time of the Filthy Lucre tour Lydon said that much of the animosity between Matlock and Lydon was stoked by McClaren anyway. Now is that something we could imagine Malcolm doing?

Paul McCartney, died 9th November 1966, replaced by a lookalike early in 1967.

Opinions vary as to whether or not this constitutes a reinstatement, but John Lennon apparently thought it was, so that's settled.

Next question, please?

In a similar vein, Nikki Sixx.

Replaced by Matthew Tripe for an album and a tour, then reinstated when he 'got well'.

Allegedly.

Yep, it's Jones on bass apart from the already recorded "Anarchy in the UK". They even put something 'subsonic' contributed by Sid underneath "Bodies"!

I was sacked from Last Three Standing because I didn't find the continual pink torpedo jokes just hilarious.  I rejoined them for a gig, then left of my own accord.

Of course, having an inferior but more outrageous bass player suited McClaren just fine. One can wonder though, if, with Matlock remaining, they could have evolved out of that first phase like several of their contemporaries instead of imploding.

sorry for thread diversion..........

I don't think so. I think the basic issue was that Jones and Cook were kind of 'power pop' (coun't find better word, sorry) and Rotten wanted to do something experimental. Matlock was in the same mind-set as Cook/Jones.

I don't think Rotten would have done another album based on rock&roll riffs.

He actually played on all he studio recordings, too.  Such was younger and prettier so was the 'face' of the earlier live stuff and publicity material.  

If that's the reason, I'm definitely not going to look for a google image of Hugh.

Agree, listen to The Professionals (Cook & Jones) and it’s along the same theme as The Sex Pistols whereas PIL, aside from Public Image, well much more experimental.

Ali McMordie from Stiff Little Fingers. Original bass player who stayed untill they split. Came back when they reformed but left a few years later and was replaced by The Jams Bruce Foxton. Bruce stayed for about 15 years (I think) and when he left, Ali came back.

I quit my own band after the guitarist, drummer, and keyboardist had quit and come back at various times. For a moment. Then I rejoined. It was a political statement. They never could have got on without me.
