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?

|Wall Of Voodoo||Stan Ridgeway||This guy was obviously the brains of that outfit. A fantastic lyricist, who only needed a drum machine and a synth. anyway, his material after he left W.O.V. is far more interesting. - princejellyfish|
|Wham!||George Michael||He was doing fine prior to his arrest for sexual misconduct involving a male officer. He's still performing today, but he's half the performer he was both with Wham! and solo. - MOR|
|Wham!||Andrew Ridgeley||Andrew only recorded one solo album, and apparently was at odds with the record label over the direction of it, which is unfortunate, because he's a very good singer in his own right––kind of a "hard rock Buddy Holly" kind of sound. Andrew was better off in Wham, even though his vocals never got to be showcased as George Michael basically dominated the group. - Lisa|
|White Zombie||Rob Zombie||White Zombie kicked and had some great songs, but the members had lives they wanted to lead and challenged lead singer Rob Zombie to go solo. Needless to say that's exactly what he did, he released "Hellbilly Deluxe" in 1998 and since then has released many more albums and enjoyed a long career as a musician. - IcedEarthaholic|
|White Zombie||Rob Zombie||1 Album is all he released and it tanked! - Celeste|
|Whitesnake||Steve Vai||Let's face it, no one would know his name if not for his solo stuff! - GlamRockNinjaLord|
|Winger||Reb Beach||A virtuoso guitarist who was stuck in an extremely crap band. Should have left the day he joined. - Matt|
