Sometimes the life of a rock star can be too much to handle – even for a rock star. When money, fame, and rock music come together they can often change things for the worst. Some of the biggest bands in music have had to deal with this first hand when members had to make a difficult choice regarding another member’s position in the band.

Fortunately, some individuals are able to find success outside of the group; however, others have been left permanently broken. Here are 10 rock stars who were kicked out of their own bands.
