Many artists move from group to group.

Sone examples include:
David Coverdale (Deep Purple, Whitesnake, Coverdale/Page)
Ronnie Janmes Dio (Elf, Rainbow, Black Sabbath, Dio)
Neil Young (Buffalo Springfield, CSNY, solo)
Sammy Hagar (Montrose, solo, Van Halen)

Paul Rodgers was previously mentioned but his band "Peace" was omitted. "Peace" was his band after the first Free breakup and didn't record any full length albums. In addition, Rodgers has another band called "The Law" with Kenny Jones and they released one really good album.

You left out The Law with Kenny Jones.

Rod Morganstein--awesome drummer with the Dixie Dregs and Steve Morse Band. Also did stints with prog rock outfits Platypus and Jelly Jam (one of many Dream Theater side projects). Brilliant musician who also played with . . . Winger?!?!? Oh well, I guess sometimes you gotta' put food on the table! Maybe he woulda' made a good input for the "sellout" thread.

Vivian Campbell (one of my top 10 guitarists)--founding guitarist of the criminally neglected Riverdogs. Also did stints with Thin Lizzy and Whitesnake. Joined Def Leppard in '92. Whoops--there ya' go agiain--trying to make some money!

Captain Ogre says:
Jeff Procaro, Jim Keltner, Klaus Voormann, Narada Michael Walden, the already mentioned Aynsley could go on forever with people that played with other people

Sticking to musicians that were a core member of their band, not just a guest or studio musician, Clapton is the best answer I've seen so far

Tommy Bolin is a better one. Not even including his "session" work:

James Gang
Deep Purple

RE Bolin: almost a crime NOT to include his session work, LOL ! Just the other week I picked up Alphonse Mouzon's Mind Transplant and *whew* --- ya think his workouts on the jazz classic "Spectrum" by Billy Cobham were sumthin' !!!!
