Sometimes a lead singer gets kicked out of a band, or leaves when their head gets too big for them. How well did they do on their own?
Comments & Submittor Name
|F.M.||Ben Mink||F.M. had moderate success in Canada during the late 1970s and early 1980s. After their split, Ben Mink went on to work with k. d. lang as her cowriter, penning numerous hits, as well as performing on other people's records such as Rush ("Losing It", from 1982's "Signals") and playing guitar on Geddy Lee's solo album from 2000, "My Favourite Headache". - P Smith|
|F.M.||Nash The Slash||These Canuk's scattered, and went back to their day jobs long ago, but the most talented and persistent of the trio is still making his voice heard. Nash never takes himself too seriously, but STILL goes full-bore with artsy-fartsy concepts that "kick ass"! - princejellyfish|
|Faces||Rod Stewart||Faces had one big American hit with "Stay With Me" before Stewart's solo career. - oldrock|
|Fairport Convention||Richard Thompson||Thompson was shy and quiet within the band, but was a certifiable genius on guitar and as a songwriter, with a breadth of knowledge of styles that gave the band a rich texture that made them unique among folk acts (i.e. they were interesting). The band eventually broke up, and for a while Thompson recorded with his wife Linda, including the classic album, "Shoot Out The Lights". After their split, Thompson became a frontman on his own since the mid-1990s recording a series of folk/rock records of brilliant songwriting, performing and humour. - P Smith|
