Response to Lithos (Reply #8)

24. Excellent list, Lithos!

Might also consider McCartney - Beatles to Wings to Solo. Granted, Wings was NOT a bigger band than the Beatles, but a famous band nonetheless. Who could possibly top having been in the Beatles? McCartney would fall into the band-to-band category.

Same thing for John Lennon. Band-to-band. Beatles to Plastic Ono Band.

As would Robbie Robertson and the guys. From Dylan's backup band to The Band in their own right.

There's also the Traveling Wilburys:
George Harrison from the Beatles.
Jeff Lynne from ELO.
Tom Petty from himself and the Heartbreakers.
Dylan. Well, from Dylan.
Roy Orbison. Well, from Roy Orbison.

But definitely Timothy B. Schmidt. From Poco to the Eagles.
