    You've seen some awesome bands..........probably showing your age mind!

    Slayer and Pantera are the only ones that come to mind, who've lost a member.

  10. Of the bands I've seen live that fit this criteria, I'm glad I got to see the original lineup of the death metal band Decapitated perform.

    Why? Because not long after I saw them live, the drummer got... wait for it.... Decapitated.

    And I'm always going to regret never getting to see Slayer with Jeff Hanemman live.

    I saw Pink Floyd with Dave Gilmour and Roger Waters performing together, not sure that'll be happening again any time soon.

    Oh and Lost Prophets, lol.

    I saw Ray Charles in one of his last shows, and I also got to see Dave Brubeck in one of his last.

    haven't been to too many concerts, but I did see STP with Scott live once. Probably won't see that again.
