    I remember hearing that a Mick solo album was basically pulled from circulation when, after several weeks, it sold about 2 THOUSAND copies.
    This was around the height of his physical fitness mania and I heard it sounded like aerobics music.
    I assume this is the album you refer to.
    Makes one wonder how much of the Jagger/Richards partnership actually involves songwriting.

    Pete Townshend’s Empty Glass. Better than some Who albums. Better than most albums IMO. Plus there is a Telecaster for the win!

    There's some nice playing from Jeff Beck on it!

    Bits and pieces of them were. Kinda like the Michael Jackson stuff, it wasn’t ever the whole of “Toto” just a Lukather and a couple Porcaros, maybe a Paich.

    I would not have expected them to have solo records in their hay day but rather during one of the many breaks or lineup shuffles they had. Plenty of time for solo records. By the time Toto came around, the session work died down for them...by choice I’m sure.

    My only recollection of it, aside from the space it occupies on my self, is that Richards is quoted at the time of saying something to the effect of:

    'if Mick quits this band I'll kill him....'

    I believe this was Micks fourth studio record which came out in the early 2000s. I can’t remember the title offhand and I’m not sure I ever heard anything from it.
    Cheers,
    Geoff
