Living Colour - Blues
Living Colour had an album in 2017, Shade, that was more of a throwback to Stain, but with more of a blues vibe. I have a good handful of tracks that I keep from it. Vernon's been busy with the blues lately with his album Mistaken Identity and has some nice guest appearances with Joe Bonamassa and Alvin Youngblood.
some things are stickier than others

In 2019, nearly every older band that can play and get paid will be playing. There are a few holdouts (The Smiths...) but for the most part deciding to stay broken up isn’t a thing bands are doing a lot these days. Unless they have lost a major member to health reasons or death of course.
Foreigner and Yes have no original members and they are still going. Then there is the low end stuff like Bobby Blotzer's Ratt Experience or whatever. These shows aren’t always bad though. Well, Ratt is always bad but I saw just Carl Palmer from ELP playing with dudes 1/3 his age and it was a legit fun time.
Nearly all metal acts are still going, the good ones anyway, which is a thing that makes me feel good about metal in general. Sticking by one’s guns, or whatever. Empire of the Clouds is one of my favorite Maiden songs released like 40 years into the band’s existence.
