I wanted to know, Who owns a band name? And do fans care about seeing original band members. Tell me what you think: Is it a real Smashing Pumpkins reunion? Would you see Styx without Dennis DeYoung in the band? Do you care who's in Little River Band?

A detail I had to leave out: at one point, the Little River Band website blocked all Australian IP addresses, because hardcore fans were calling the current LRB frauds in comment sections.

Also, LRB has hardcore fans.
Do you remember Player, the soft-rock band that had a big hit in 1977 with "Baby Come Back"? There are now -two- touring incarnations of Player, the result of a Dec 2018 legal settlement that strikes me as oddly self-defeating.
Player 1 is Peter Beckett, who sang and co-wrote "Baby Come Back." Player 2 is bassist Ronn Moss, the long-time bassist, who, well, was the long-time bassist. Let me also say, this is what pop bands should look like.
