I quite like Noel Gallagher I do
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.

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.
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?
Slash is a good album. Not got the new one yet.
Haha I believe my feelings on Noel are well known
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.

Uppercut: Maybe I just need better strippers
There was some decent tunes amongst Albert Hammond Jr.'s stuff
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.
