Singer leaves - there goes our chance....

I was listening to Riot - Fire Down Under today, thinking what a fantastic album it is and how good Guy Speranza was. That, inevitably, leads to the "what if he'd stayed" question which led me to think that Riot are probably the best example of a band on the very brink of the 'breakthrough' that had it snatched away due to the singer leaving.
Back then Riot had an almost unstoppable momentum, especially here in the UK, and it seemed just a matter of time until they joined the big boys on the A List.

Icon are another, to a lesser extent, to suffer the same fate. Can anyone think of some more that we're SO close to the major breakthrough - but due to the singer leaving it just evaporated before their eyes?
