Generation X Billy Idol Billy Idol is remembered better today than Generation X is. I think he's done pretty well for himself. [Ed.'s note: Billy Idol was never a member of X, which is a totally different band from Generation X.] - Tim Kramar
Genesis Peter Gabriel The singer who left before Phil Collins got the gig. - Michael E Cormier
Genesis Peter Gabriel Peter's career wasn't really going all that well, commercially, until the release of his solo album 'So'. Genesis did better with Phil Collins, who has now also gone solo -- except Collins basically sold out. - Eric
Genesis Phil Collins He did pretty good for awhile after he left Genesis (better than they did without him). His last few albums are pretty bad though. - ChuckyG
Genesis Mike Rutherford Found side success in 1985 with Mike + the Mechanics, but in 1982, as a solo artist, released an album called 'Acting Very Strange' that produced a Top 40 hit in Canada called 'Maxine' - whistledog
Genesis Steve Hackett The lead guitarist ("Nursery Crime" to "Seconds Out"). Hacket went on to make better Genesis albums than Genesis (Just compare "Duke" with "Spectral Mornings" and you'll smell what I'm cooking. - royal pfizbin
The Germs Belinda Carlisle The Germs' first drummer for a very brief period, under which she was known as "Dottie Danger," Carlisle later became the singer for the Go-Go's. - Alan the Ottoman
Girl Phil Collen After Girl broke up, Phil Collen joined Def Leppard as their rhythm guitarist and has remained with the Lepp crew for over 31 years! I'd say he's better off... - GlamRockNinjaLord
Gong Steve Hillage A perfect example of how much fun you could have in the "70's if you managed to disengage yourself from the un-workable concept of the "Hippy with a vision". (Attn Ozric Tentacles fans! This is your heritage calling!) - princejellyfish
Guns N Roses Michael "Duff" McKagen Another one who did the right thing by getting as far away from Axl as possible. - Celeste
Guns N Roses Slash Getting the hell away from Axl has allowed him to grow--sort of--as an artist. - Agrimorfee
Guns N' Roses Slash Slash finally left GNR in 1996 after disagreements in the band caused him to be toxic to himself. - Celeste
