there's been a few 'album' threads recently so how about one for solo albums by ex-band members. or even ones released while they were still in the band. the rule is they had to have come to be known for being in a band, rather than a solo artist
here's a few of my favourites ...
Donald Fagen (STEELY DAN) - The Nightfly
David Lee Roth (VAN HALEN) - Eat Em And Smile
Mitch Easter (LET'S ACTIVE) - Dynamico
