This is a comprehensive timeline and listing of past and present members of Fishbone, a U.S. alternative rock band formed in 1979 in Los Angeles, California, which plays a fusion of ska, punk rock, funk, hard rock and soul.

This list only includes official members of the band, not various session or onstage musicians who have filled in for departed or absent members.

Fishbone first assembled in 1979 with John Norwood Fisher (bass); his brother Phillip "Fish" Fisher (drums); Angelo Moore, who sometimes uses the stage name "Dr. Madd Vibe" (vocals, saxophones ranging from sopranino to bass, theremin); Kendall Jones (guitar); "Dirty" Walter A. Kibby II (vocals, trumpet); and Christopher Dowd, who sometimes uses the pseudonym "Charlie Down" (keyboards, trombone, vocals). The six founding members met while in junior high school in Los Angeles. The band became a seven-piece with the addition of guitarist/keyboardist John Bigham in 1989. The first founding member to depart was Kendall Jones in 1993, followed by Christopher Dowd in 1994 and Phillip Fisher in 1998. Walter Kibby left the band in 2003 but returned in 2010. The current line-up includes founding members John Norwood Fisher, Angelo Moore, and Walter Kibby; plus John Steward (drums), Rocky George (guitar), and Jay Armant (trombone). Paul Hampton, formerly of The Skeletones, was announced as the new keyboardist in July 2013.
