I have a live DVD of this band from a New Year's Eve Show in LA from about 5 years ago. Lonnie Jordan, the original keyboardist and singer of most hits is the only original member. He owns the name and the band he has assembled is quite good. The only negative is Lonnie gets a little long winded with stories between every song. To me, it seems to kill the pace and the energy at times. Their are 3 or 4 other original members and they have a band as well, but cannot use the name, so if you see Low Rider, that's the remaining members. I've seen videos on Youtube and they're really good as well.

I have seen the current War once live and have seen Lowrider countless times on The Blues Cruise. Lowrider has Howard Scott, Lee Oskar, and Harold Brown from the original War while Lonnie Johnson is the only original member in the current War lineup. Lowrider is awesome and plays with passion. They perform at least four times on each Blues Cruise and I make a point to catch every set. War is now just a cover band and, in my opinion, not worth going to see.

It's too bad that lawsuits and bickering caused the split happened to "why cant we be friends".

The only reason I saw War was because they were touring with Cheech and Chong...the real reason I went to the show.
