If the Peppers had to happen in order for his stuff to get out there then so be it.
Jerry Garcia: Garcia
Essentially a "real" solo album where he plays all the instruments except drums.... LOve the pedal steel!
Most of the album ended up the the Dead's repertoire for the duration.
Most of Jerry's solo albums had a few real strong cuts mixed with some weaker attempts...
Most of Richie Kotzens 20 something solo albums. Quite a few where he played all the instruments. Strange he is mostly knows from having been in Poison for a couple years and Mr Big for a few more.
Adrian Belew - Lone Rhino
Niandra is great! John has several of my favorite solo albums and is perhaps my favorite solo artist (Young Neil is up there too, but he’s better known solo than as a band member). Most days, I’d put the Empyrean at the top of the list, personally. Also love the Will and Shadows Collide.
Others, off the top:
Eddie Vedder - Into the Wild
Chris Cornell - Higher Truth
Syd Barrett - Madcap Laughs
YEA! Forgot about this one!
My favorite cut...
Izzy Stradlin's releases. They are all good
Dan Baird: Love Songs for the Hearing Impaired and Buffalo Nickel
Graham Nash: Songs for Beginners
Jean-Jacques Goldman: Chansons pour les pieds
Eddie Hazel (from Funkadelic)- Game, Dames and Guitar Thangs
Pops Staples - Don't Lose This
Already mentioned before, but this one.
I'm on my 3rd copy.
His first album I bought and liked, but never followed through on any others.
They are all good, I think. Here's just a couple of them:
Izzy was always the coolest guy in GnR. Maybe the only cool one. I dunno I guess Duff was maybe alright. But Izzy wrote the best songs in GnR. And right at the height of their popularity, he got sick of the BS, said screw it, and just walked away.
Ben Weasel - “These Ones are Bitter”
Dunno how much of a solo album this is as his more famous band Screeching Weasel (a major player and influencer in the 90’s pop punk scene) was usually him and a revolving door of other people, but it doesn’t change the fact that his last solo album from around 10 years back or so is literally the best thing he’s ever done. Top notch songs, massive hooks, great introspective lyrics, much more musically intricate than any of the official SW albums. Worth a look if you dig anything with strong melodies and huge guitars:
you guys talking Keith, I always preferred Main Offender over Talk Is Cheap:
