The Stranglers - Only JJ Burnel left and they will do one more tour (delayed.)

Jet Black is still around but doesnt play with them, Dave recently passed and Hugh left the band 30 years ago, so surely they are deserving of this thread.

The Hollies no longer include any original members. Tony Hicks has been on all their releases and Bobby Elliott has been on nearly all of them, spanning nearly 60 years. But neither of them were original members.

Are we talking bands that still exist in some form, or bands no longer touring or in existence?

Ronnie was one of the plane crash victims.

Guitarist Gary Rossington is not only the sole founding member still in the band, but the sole founding member still alive.

I was thinking Fripp and Crimson. Then again, he was the only founding member in the band a short time after the debut album.
