so I can think of Black Sabbath and Funkadelic as having the most members throughout the span of their careers. With Funkadelic taking the cake, I don't even know that many people. Any other bands you can think of. And I was also wondering if there has ever been a band to go on with none of it's original members.

Without a doubt not the most, but it's seemed Elvenking has had it's fair share of member trade-offs.

I still enjoyed the Wyrd/Heathenreel days. Now they're not that great.
