All of Slade are still around.

From the '60s, the closest I can think of are The Hollies: original bassist Eric Haydock died a few years back, but the classic 1966-1968 line-up of Allan Clarke, Graham Nash, Tony Hicks, Bernie Calvert and Bobby Elliott are still around (bassist Bernie is the only one no longer making music).

Ahhh... got one: Manfred Mann! The 1963-1965 line-up are all still around:

Manfred Mann, Paul Jones, Dave Richmond, Tom McGuinness, Mike Hugg.

Beat that! winking smiley

until Dusty Hill died ZZ Top must have been one the longest running and still active bands (1969-2021)

I believe so. I remember reading this before he died. Saw them in 2018 in Virginia.

While they are all still alive, Bill Ward has not been a part of Black Sabbath for some time now. Not sure if you meant bands that still tour with all original members or just bands who's original members are still breathing.

For the Pistols, Sid Vicious anyone? Who, incidentally replaced original member Glen Matlock, so I'm not sure if this one really counts.

Kills me every day that every member of Guns N Roses is still alive and they don't play together. They've missed the opportunity to really cash in on in but still, clock's tickin boys.

All the members of KISS are still around but don't play together.

All the members of Aerosmith are still around but Joey doesn't tour with them anymore.

For awhile it killed me that John, Mick, Jeremy, Danny and Peter Green from the original Fleetwood Mac walked the earth and never played together again.

Black Sabbath as mentioned, but don't play together. All the members of Cheap Trick too. Up until yesterday I was pulling for a CSN reunion. I think all the original members of Dire Straits are still alive? Same with the famous lineup of Jethro Tull. I think all of the Raspberries are also still alive, same with the Sex Pistols. Genesis as mentioned, same with the Police, and REM. Simon And Garfunkel. Slade. Talking @#$%& Heads. And Television. Triumph. Zebra.

U2 may be the biggest band I can think of that still and has only toured with their original members. Pearl Jam is the closest other I can think of that just have a different drummer, but the original one is still alive and they have played together recently. Weezer also with a different bassist. Phish I think are all original too?

Weird Al Yankovic still tours with the same band he's had since 1982, his entire career.

I'm glad you mentioned Weird Al. Yes a great band he has had for a long time.

Seen in this way, then also the Scorpions.

I think The Kinks are the oldest band that could possibly reunite in their 60s lineup. Altough not the original one since Pete Qauife died in 2010 but with John Dalton on bass.

Thank you.

Curious if anyone can come up with a band earlier than Manfred Mann where all key members survive?

Re: OT Bands still all with us original members

Simon & Garfunkel (if they count as a band; but who really knows who played in their backing band anyway…)

I wonder how all the members of Little Boy Blue And The Blues Boys are doing. Three of them alright, at least.
