April 12th, 2010 by Rolling Stone Leave a reply »

Last week, inspired by Thom Yorke and Atoms for Peace’s performance of The Eraser in New York, we asked for a rundown of your favorite solo albums by artists known for their work in bands. After nearly 100 votes, many from Pearl Jam fans, Eddie Vedder’s Into the Wild soundtrack beat out Yorke and solo LPs from members of the Beatles, the Strokes and the Velvet Underground. We can think of some pretty major ones left off the list — Iggy Pop’s The Idiot stands out as one glaring oversight — so be sure to let us know which of your faves didn’t make the Readers’ List below:

1. Eddie Vedder – Into The Wild
2. George Harrison – All Things Must Pass
3. Lou Reed – Transformer
4. Paul Simon – Graceland
5. John Lennon – John Lennon/Plastic Ono Band
6. Julian Casablancas – Phrazes for the Young
7. Thom Yorke – The Eraser
8. Lauryn Hill – The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill
9. Pete Townshend – Empty Glass
10. Chris Cornell – Euphoria Morning
11. Keith Richards – Talk Is Cheap
12. Ian Hunter – You’re Never Alone With A Schizophrenic
13. Jerry Cantrell – Boggy Depot
14. John Cale – Paris 1919
15. Albert Hammond Jr. – Yours To Keep
