But for one example off the top of my head:

Yeah, but I'm pretty confident Onslaught can still bring it live, which is the only thing that matters for the vast majority of these old bands anyways. They've ceased to be creatively vital, so they focus on the classic shit, nothing wrong with that. A few (Maiden, Motorhead, Exodus, some others) are still thankfully putting out amazing new stuff, but at least 75% of all band whose heyday came in the 80's haven't been doing much exciting stuff in recent years.
