Ten Pairs of Ex-Band Members Who Reconnected To Become Self-Titled Bands

The history of rock and roll is filled with bands who have broken up because of fighting among their members. More often than not, it has been the conflict between the two group leaders that eventually brought on the band's demise.

The most obvious example is the clash between John Lennon and Paul McCartney, the great songwriting team responsible for most of the best hits by The Beatles. The two, after pursuing solo careers, never did another collaboration.

Stephen Morrissey and Johnny Marr, the songwriting partners of the Smiths, experienced a similar break up after the group's Strangeways Here We Come album. Now thirty years later, the two still have not reunited for a collaboration.

Fortunately, numerous band leaders have managed to record together after their group broke up. Here are ten such former band partners who reunited using their own names rather than that of their previous groups.

Richard Barone and James Mastro

These two led the eighties new wave band the Bongos, but in between records with their group the duo released an excellent self-titled album.

David Crosby and Graham Nash

These two rock icons made of half of CSNY, but since then have made numerous records on their own.

Chris Difford and Glenn Tilbrook

Squeeze's songwriting tandem split the group after albums with hits like "Tempted" and "Black Coffee In Bed", deciding to release a record just on their own.

Marilyn McCoo and Billy Davis Jr.,

This husband and wife charted with "You Don't Have To Be A Star" just a few years after the demise of the Fifth Dimension.

Kevin Godley and Lol Creme

As members of 10cc these guys gave the band an edgy, avant garde appeal before splitting from Eric Stewart and Graham Gouldman to score the hit "Cry."

Gary Rossington and Allen Collins

Two years after the plane crash that killed Lynyrd Skynyrd, the two surviving guitarists formed a new self-titled band.

Roger McGuinn and Chis Hillman

After all of the Byrds left the nest, these two founders reunited for a self-titled album.

Stephen Stills and Neil Young

Like their two former partners in CSNY, these two ex-Buffalo Springfield legends got together under their own names to release the sparkling disc Long May You Run.

Paul Kantner and Grace Slick

These two Jefferson Airplane steadies collaborated with their self-titled band and released the Sunfighter album 1971.

Jimmy Page and Robert Plant

Walking Into Clarksdale, released under their names in 1998, was proof that these guys could still create great music together even long after Led Zeppelin.
