Public Image Ltd.'s ever-changing structure allowed a large number of people to pass through its ranks. This listing is based on data found on the Fodderstompf website, especially the members and discography sections. "Most of the people involved were dislikable little shits," Jah Wobble observed of the band's formative years, "including meself."[1]
