    Would or Would have?..please, advice...

    I need a little help, please.

    I used to play in rock band, but I quit some time ago. So I am not member anymore. And my old band is on tour right now and will record new album after that.

    What is correct to say?

    If I stayed / had stayed in the band, I would be on tour right now.
    And I would record new songs after that.


    or

    If I stayed / had stayed in the band, I would have been on tour right now.
    And I would have recorded new songs after that.


    Thanks much for help.

    Thanks very much for ​your help.
    Both these versions are correct: "If I had stayed in the band, I would be on tour right now, and I would be recording new songs after that."
    or "If had stayed in the band, I would have been on tour right now, and I would have been recording new songs after that"

    Dear chefoliver
    Thank you, but there's no need to post a message of thanks. Simply clicking on the "Thank" button is the preferred method of showing your appreciation, and avoids clogging up the site.

    Yours Aye
