Top 10 Music Acts that Were Like an Extension Of a Previous ActMetal_Treasure
The Top Ten
Rainbow was like an extension of Deep Purple - two Deep Purple members were in Rainbow (Ritchie Blackmore and Roger Glover) and continued the experimentation with heavy metal started in Deep Purple.
But later a Rainbow keyboardist became Deep Purple keyboardist (Don Airey) and a Rainbow singer became a Deep Purple singer (Joe Lynn Turner) - Metal_Treasure
In my opinion, the Dio fronted Rainbow was better than Deep Purple at times.
They're a fusion of Nirvana and Sunny Day Real Estate. - Martin_Canine
This is a famous example of this. By the way, this is a great list. You have some very good ideas! - Metarock
This is the most well known story on this list (famous previous act - Nirvana) - Metal_Treasure
In a way, I almost like the Foo Fighters more than I like Nirvana. - Metarock
An extension of Creed, a better version - Metal_Treasure
Creed minus Scott Stapp. - thomwim
Technically, they were an extension of The Yardbirds. This is an example of the extension being bigger and more famous than its root. - Metarock
An extension of Sepultura - Metal_Treasure
An extension of Slipknot - Metal_Treasure
Reincarnation of Sepultura AND Soulfly - Metal_Treasure
Extension of Free
In their early years they were like an extension of Necrophagist but currently there aren't ex-members of Necrophagist - Metal_Treasure
An extension of Soundgarden and Rage Against the Machine. - Metal_Treasure
Yes, in terms of quantity. But for me Cornell's voice was the most distinctive thing in both bands, or at least for me it was. But your comment is correct and is accepted. - Metal_Treasure
Jason Bonham is the son of Led Zeppelin drummer John Bonham - Metal_Treasure
Actually, LZ was just an extension of The Yardbirds, and in fact the entire LZ lineup was called "The New Yardbirds" at their first couple of gigs.
Yes. And the name Led Zeppelin was created by The Who members as a joke... - Metal_Treasure
After Joy Division singer Ian Curtis passed away, the members decided to keep going with a new sound and a new name. - Gg2000
A version of the early Helloween dominated by Kai Hansen (before Kiske) - Metal_Treasure
An extension of Necrophagist (via Obscura) - Metal_Treasure
Kind of a second Metallica, although not exactly. I find that Megadeth are not that similar to Metallica. They both have thrash metal roots, but Megadeth seems to have a more aggressive and faster playing style. - Metarock
A continuation of Metallica. Sorta.
After Oasis split in 2009, four of its members (except Noel Gallagher) regrouped to create a new project. That project was Beady Eye. - Gg2000
Lostprophets minus Taylor Swift. - thomwim
I think 2 members of the group Yes were there.
