Debut Albums From Singers Of effective Bands7062685
Each morning the birthday area of the local newspaper prints what they are called of the famous people who were born on that particular day, and there is almost always a leading musician listed among them. In some cases the editor finds it necessary to mention this guitar rock band name, because the musician probably is not known to many individuals who might be aware of group.
Yesterday the paper listed Steve Vai, an esteemed although not widely recognized guitarist. For some reason none of the bands Vai worked with accompanied his name, although that information may have helped music fans more clearly identify him.
His most famous collaboration cane through rock legend Frank Zappa, but Vai caused many noteworthy artists during the decades to come. My first review of Vai came through David Lee Roth, once i purchased the former Van Halen singer's first solo album Eat 'em and Smile.
Steve Vai stood a huge role because album, nevertheless it still wound up with a lukewarm reception. Most fans of Van Halen, like myself, were disappointed by Roth's first solo effort.
He had not been the first singer of the great band release a a eponymous debut that did not live up to expectations, and listed here are ten others.
Mr. Bad by Freddie Mercury
Queen's front man took a disco approach to his first release without his three mates, so fans of vintage discs just like a Night In the Opera and Sheer Cardiac arrest were certain to be a little disappointed. The album has some tracks that have aged well, such as "Man Made Paradise" and "Living By myself."
Self-Titled by Ian Hunter
After the final two delightful Mott the Hoople records, Hunter did manage to score popular by himself with "Once Bitten Twice Shy." Some of the other songs here, however, meet the standards his band had established.
The night time Fly by Donald Fagen
"New Frontier" was a huge hit and most of the songs have endured, yet in general this collection pales for the discography of Steely Dan.
Beatitude by Ric Ocasek
It appears like something his band The Cars may have done, only it clings too closely to an alternative wave sound which was already fading.
I can not Stand Still by Don Henley
Those who liked both the rock and also the country phases with the Eagles probably felt some regret when the singing drummer filled his first disc with mostly unremarkable pop tunes like "Dirty Laundry."
Self-Titled by Eric Carmen
Carmen played power pop like "Go All the Way" with the Raspberries, simply to do a complete one eighty simply by himself on songs including "Never Gonna Just fall in love Again."
Schemer Dreamer by Steve Walsh
The energetic stage leader of Kansas broke out on his own to produce an album with just seven songs, one of these was a cover of Elvis Presly's "That's All Right."
Daltrey by Roger Daltrey
Busy with starring in the rock opera Tommy and singing a lot of the songs for your Who, Daltrey probably had little while to spend with this solo release.
Pictures At Eleven by Robert Plant
He'd enjoy much success as a solo artist afterwards, but this initial release sort of went over like a lead zeppelin.
Face Value by Phil Collins
"In the Air" was a huge hit, nevertheless the record veered a lot of from the work Collins did with Genesis during the early years.
