Once a brand has been established, it is to their advantage to continue that brand. Van Halen, Guns N' Roses, Drowning Pool, AC/DC, even Motley Crue are or have been in the same situation. One member leaves the band, either by quitting or firing or in the tragic cases of DP and AC/DC death, and the rest of the band is left with the decision of continuing under the same name or creating a new brand. It is better, publicity-wise, to continue under the same name.

I do not hold anything against Crashdiet for continuing without Dave, and in fact I think they honor his memory more by doing so. The music they are creating is spectacular and they are still gaining new fans, and introducing more and more to Lepard's legacy. If they were no longer performing as Crashdiet, some of those connections would be lost.

I think by continuing in the Crashdiet honors dave better than if they changed the name. The main thing is what would dave have wanted the band to do in the event of his death. Im sure he would have wanted them to keep on rockin.

it's difficult to find the right words on this opinion. I would say that Peter, Martin and Eric have to decide what is right and what is wrong. We all we're dissapointed when TUR came out, and we thought that is the end of Crashdiet. But now I feel that they creatin' some new aggressive stuff, which can be in Dave Lepards mind. But otherwise Dave Lepard is history. He isn't still around here, so it's stupid to compare every song to Dave. And to compare the new singer to Dave is just crap. I think they want to step out of Dave Lepards boots now, and I have the feeling that they can make it now, with the new stuff. I wish you all the best.

I tell you honey it feels alright

wouldn't even cross my mind"

Thanks for the opinions guys,

Yea I totally agree it has been tough for these guys to get away from the legacy that Dave has, but I did not find TUR to be a bad album and to me it is comparable to RIS. It is a little harder which is not that good to me, but it still has catchy tunes and awesome lyrics, so to me it is only a few steps off of RIS.

Also, I prove that because they continued using Crashdiet as their name they have introduced me to Dave Lepard, so very good point there.

Anyway, I can't wait for the new songs to come out and I can't wait to see who the new singer is!

Take it Sleazy!

So it seems the majority feel the same way as I do and support Crashdiet and continue to love the band, but there are just a few oddballs that despise the band now!

Nice to know. By the way I can't get enough of the new track, and I have no idea what people keep saying about Power Metal?

ive no issue with them using the name.

providing they dont sell out, and keep making good music.


People complained about Van Halen when Dave wasnt in it, but theres equally as big a fanbase for Van Hagar, as there is Van Halen.

Same thing about Power Metal...really. I wonder why?
The part "avoid disappointment expect that you'll loooose
before you condemn me try walking in my shooooes" feels so familiar to me while it's a totally new song with a new voice. It sounds like just...Crashdïet and so much more close to the first album than TUR was 8-)

i personally think them continuing with the same name and so on is a tribute to dave (r.i.s), they're still crashdiet.maybe they were better when he was alive, who knows they'll have to prove us wrong/right won't they.

bret left poison? Finally, or no, was that an example? Hahaha, well who gives a crap about poison.

this discussion about comparing members who left/died in bands will never end, it is only the personal opinion that counts, if the majority of the fans wants a new singer to the band name crashdiet, then fine, go ahead, but i will not personally like the whole idea.

and if they change the name, fans will follow, why shouldn't they, martin, peter and eric are great musicians. But keeping the name is wrong for me, and perhaps for some other, but as i said, i totally understand if the majority wants the band to keep the band name, and create music under daves name...
