    If you chose Brian Johnson listen to Highway To Hell. I love the Back In Black and beyond but he is the reason ACDC are viewed as a joke band. Bon was pretty adolescent but has Brian Johnson written more than 2 or 3 songs not about shaggin

    Whoever considers AC/DC a joke band needs a good kick in the ass ASAP.

    Totally agree.

    And Bruce Hornsby was a good replacement for Brent (wasn't a big Vince fan though).
    "You're no help," he told the lime. This was unfair. It was only a lime; there was nothing special about it at all. It was doing the best it could.

    Janet Weiss replacing the drummer before her in Sleater-Kinney was a great replacement choice

    Considering that I don't acknowledge Bernie Torme, Brad Gillis, or Jake E. Lee as "replacements"... yes he was:D

    They were comparable to sluts he banged on the road... whereas Zakk was his second wife. Well third if you count Iommi..
    Come on..........Brad Gillis was amazing on "Speak of the Devil"......absolutely amazing.......Jake E. Lee had least one half-way decent album with Oz to his credit.....and he was excellent when seen in concert.

    Even though Blink 182 is a joke band, Travis Barker replacing their first drummer is worth mentioning and made a huge impact.

    i have to mention the british group marillion, who replaced their scottish singer fish with steve hogarth... thus giving the band a new lease of creative life and turning them from a 'prog' band into a truely progressive band. without this change the band would not still be making music today.

    Roger Waters, Pink Floyd - Many fans (myself included) love the Syd Barrett stuff, but Waters' is the one who turned in the classic work. I realize Waters didn't "replace" Barrett, as they were both in the original lineup, but Waters took over as principal singer and band visionary. I also acknowledge David Gilmour's contributions, but Waters is the one who really stepped up and led the band to glory...

    i thought you were talking about Paul Westerberg!

    For singer's I would also say Brian Johnson.  AC/DC was one of the rare bands that had successful albums with both of their singers.  Bon Scott and Brian Johnson were both great frontmen to the band.  The Razor's Edge and the Live Album were my introduction to AC/DC and I still love those albums.

    I can't think of any other bands that made albums that memorable after replacing the singer.  It's the best case scenario for having to do that.

    For musicians.. I dunno.   I think the singer is the hardest one to replace.  It's pretty hard finding a good front person.  For musician I'll go with Dave Grohl.  Would nevermind have been the same without him pounding the shit out of his drum kit? :)

    The obvious choice, of course, would be Paul.

    Bruce is probably the only one who'd be on this list twice. He replaced Paul Di'Anno after Killers, and he replaced Blaze Bailey when he rejoined the band.
