This week’s offering is an hour of artists who either left or took time away from their respective groups to concentrate on solo material. Many of these artists made themselves known through their solo work, many of them failed due to it, some of them had no other options and a few of them just do it for the fun, see if you can tell which ones do which.
Enjoy the noise!
