Re: Who had the best solo career?

Phil Collins was pretty huge after Genesis.

Rod Stewart form Faces.

Van Morrison from Them

Paul Simon from Simon and Garfunkle

Michael McDonald from the Doobies

Peter Frampton

Eric Clapton (would have to be the biggest)

Re: Who had the best solo career?

Phil Collins is really a solid candidate, isn't he? As for Clapton, I would have to say that I'm not at all sure that you could ever consider him not being a solo artist, since he tended to (whether intentionally or otherwise) so dominate any band he was a part of that he got solo-artist-scale name recognition regardless.

Re: Who had the best solo career?

Outside of Derek and the Dominoes or Cream, I cannot listen to Clapton.

Now onto the List:

1. Gabriel
2. Sting
3. Macca
4. Frampton
5. Ozzy

Top success goes to:
Tina
Sting

They all exploded with greater fame and riches after their previous bands imploded....
