If you’re a key member of a successful band, the solo bug will bite. Here we salute some of the most notable artists who found life after the band.
The British rock group founded by Genesis' Mike Rutherford have released albums like Acting Very Strange and Word of Mouth.
Released on 2 April 1991, ‘Word Of Mouth’ was another confident and eminently well crafted pop-rock LP from Mike And The Mechanics.
Peaking at No.9 in the UK Top 40, ‘Beggar On A Beach Of Gold’ deservedly added another gold disc to Mike + The Mechanics’ awards cabinet in 1995.
