    No release date as of yet but QOTSA's 6th album approaching. Pumped for this, apparantly their trying to recapture the sound of their first album - which would be great. Era Vulgaris disappointed me because it just sounded so unfocused and was jarring to hear it played loud.

    Didn't sing lead on enough stuff. It was like having Pele in your side and playing him in goal.

    Any fans of Alice Cooper on here? Just listening to Welcome To My Nightmare (70s version not the re-released album of the same name) and it's really rather majestic. The title track is outstanding and a far cry musically from the likes of School's Out - would highly recommend.

    Just check out Only Women Bleed - very Beatles-like.

    Must admit my enduring aural association for Alice is the alright-as-it-goes pop-metal of Poison, which was released at a crucial junction in my formative years, so I've always had him & the band he took his name from lumped in with the Bon Jovis and Def Leppards of this world. Probably unfairly, but, as someone once observed, the trouble with first impressions is that you only get to make one.

    Meanwhile, a new musical topicette: solo albums by guitarists.

    I don't mean albums from the frontperson or co-frontperson who happened to play guitar too, rather those by guitarists whose role was mainly playing the axe. I suppose Richard Hawley (former Longpigs' axeman turned Scott Walkeresque crooner) is the current heavyweight champion of this genre, his solo output far outstripping (IMHO, obvz) his former band's.

    I also own albums released by Johnny Marr, John Squire, Mick Harvey & Bernard Butler that range from interesting-to-fans-of-their band to rather good, actually. If one were to generalise about them they tend to be more introspectove affairs than the work produced by their former bands with a (predictable) focus on the music rather than the lyrics.

    Thoughts? Recommendations? Ones to avoid?

    No love for Noel? For shame.

    Nah, sort of have him & Harrison on the cusp as they used to sing a bit too.

    Mick Ronson (Bowies former axeman) Slaughter on 10th Avenue is worth a listen, just for the title track alone

    Of course yer Velvets Mr Cale was the one who first rearranged Hallelujah into the phenomenon it is today.

    Been wrestling with my better nature, but, **** it, can't help myself.

    I think you'll find he was The Velvets' bassist/viola player.

    I suppose you could say Clapton is another example; started off as The Yardbirds' guitarist & wasn't really the singer of any group 'til Derek & The Dominoes.

    I guess it's partly a reflection of who buys albums still. Yer yoofs are probably more attuned to procuring their music via downloads and such, whether legitimate or not.

    This is only me summising and is based on no research, but I bet those thirty-plussers out there are the demo most likely to still buy physical music from record shops and, once one reaches a certain age, one's taste tends to become, if not set in stone, then certainly less liquid so one tends to stick to what one knows.
