    I hope I worded the question right, I've been wracking my brain for some time trying to figure it out <_<

    I saw Johnny Rotten with Sex Pistols and Public Image Ltd (twice).
    Adrian Erlandsson with Paradise Lost and At The Gates.
    Jon Dette with Anthrax and Iced Earth.
    Ozzy, Geezer and Clufetos with Ozzy and Black Sabbath.

    I didn't know that band ever performed under that name.

    I think he did. He made a big deal out of it wanting it to be a real band. That said, I think it was both advertised as Bruce Dickinson and Skunkworks or one of the two.

    The only musician I can think from the top of my head of is Tim Owens, with Iced Earth and his "Tim Ripper Owens" solo act. I've seen so many bands, many of them relatively obscure, that it's wholly possible that I saw dozens of musicians with different acts - looking at the live musicians Owens played with, I guess I must have seen some of those elsewhere-, but I don't really feel like doing the research right now.

    So, Myles Kennedy with Alter Bridge and Slash.

    Only two bands, but the musician I've seen the most live is Steve Harris. Maiden x4 and British Lion x4.

    I didn't count this since I didn't pay attention when BLS played :p Same goes for Ritchie Faulkner with Lauren Harris, and Iced Earth's bass player with Fury UK.

    Guess the only one that springs to mind is Gus G. Seen him a couple of times with fire wind and once live with Ozzy's solo band. Also saw him with dream evil too

    Steve Harris with Maiden four times and British Lion two times was the only one I could think of... Until I remembered I actually saw Judas Priest live and can add Richie Faulkner with Lauren Harris and Judas Priest to this list.

    That said, I've been a fan of a lot if musicians as they have moved on to other bands but I don't think I've actually seen them live in different constellations. If you don't count tribute bands, cause in that case I've seen John Norum, Ian Haugland and Mic Michaeli from Europe in one at a special occasion show

    Faulkner was special though. He really made an impression on me and I still remember seeing him from afar looking cool as hell with Lauren so when Judas Priest announced him as their new guitarplayer it came as no surprise at all. I just knew he'd make it into a bigger band.

    Not to mention Steve having his beady eye on him too.
