All I remember is this (my life was kind of focussed on other stuff around 1991-92 so I wasn't up to the minute at the time):

1990: Stevie and Christine announce they are leaving the group

1991: Rick leaves too

1992: The 25 Years box set comes out with two newly recorded tracks featuring Mick, John, Chris and Billy. It turns out that Chris's reluctance is to tour rather than to record.

1993: Dave and Bekka are announced as new members. A promotional picture appears featuring the (soon-to-be) Time lineup but without Billy - Chris and Bekka are holding fake beards to their faces. According to Billy in the Penguin Q & A he had left at this time to pursue his solo career (releasing Coming Home in 1993).

1994: The band play at the World Cup concert - I actually saw this on TV, a four song set. The lineup includes Billy but not Chris. I heard later (I think from Billy maybe in the Q & A) that he'd been persuaded back. With Chris's reluctance to tour I can well see why Mick would have wanted a familiar face back rather than to be solely fronted by the two new members.

I think we all know the rest.

I wish Mick would just say definitively that the group does not exist anymore. Then we can edit Wikipedia and get rid of all this crap about the surviving members of the 2018-19 lineup comprising a current configuration.

Thanks to Mick and all erstwhile members for the good times.
