I was just thinking this the other day. It needs to happen.
If they make a solo album it's really just them with different musicians. I guess there are some solo albums where the artist does everything, but that's a rare exception.
I like what Sterling Morrison brings to The Velvet Underground, I would be interested in hearing what he has to say on his own.
If he had gotten clean, a solo album from Brian Jones would have been our best way to separate the myth from the musician.
I don't know if he did a solo album, but I wouldn't mind a Nicky Hopkins solo LP. Or better yet, a greatest hits double LP of songs he where he played his amazing piano....
Michael Stipe is my final answer.
Did not know that. Any good?
Here you go. It’s pretty good!
I thought of this one as well.
Brent Mydland of the Grateful Dead. He actually made an unreleased solo record circ 1982. I wish it was released.
I've only heard one song from Ike Willis's solo album, it was decent music in the Zappa 80's rock style.
Richard Manuel of the Band. He had solo live albums but never a proper studio one.
That would have been great.
Danny Whitten. The Crazy Horse self-titled doesn’t count.
Pete Cosey. We could easily have ten cosmic guitar albums by now
After my Tom Petty post before, I had the thought to check to see if Mike Campbell has ever done a solo album - he has not.
Jeff Hannaman,well Seeds Of Horror could qualify.
I’d love to hear outtakes and jams with the Van Halen bro’s.
That would be amazing. I’d be happy with one cosmic guitar album by Pete Cosey.
That’s a good one. He seems a perfect candidate for doing a solo album. Maybe he’s not much of a singer??
Alan Myers, former percussionist from the band DEVO ( 76' through '84' ).
He was a total jazz head at his core...and I would have loved to have heard some of his earlier works before joining up with the band.
While in the band however, he contributed some remarkable drum work...and became known as 'the Human Metronome' due to his incredibly rock solid timing.
A real talent, and so sadly under appreciated and overlooked.
In his post-DEVO days he played for a few other eccentric / alternative bands including one he brought together himself of a small gathering of friends who liked to play interpretive 'art jazz' sporadically.
There have been small bits and pieces released that are 'out there' , but Alan being the modest personality he was never issued a proper solo album.
So wish he did....
What about John McVie
Is that already happening? I don't know what's been officially said, and maybe it's partially on hold for now because of the pandemic, but he's been fairly active when it comes to releasing singles and collaborations this year. I've been assuming (hoping) it's leading up to something.
