One person that comes to mind when thinking about this subject is Tarja Trunen, former vocalist of the Finnish heavy gothic symphonic metal band Nightwish. The band is pretty good without her, but with her amazing voice she does phenomenal with her solo career.

With the mention of Belinda in mind, it also must be mentioned that she had occasional help from one Charlotte Caffey, who was also a Go Go to those who don't know. I might want to dive into Viola sometime, however. I liked "Mad About You" and maybe a couple of other singles, but by the time of Live Your Life Be Free, it was time to stop wishing for a full decent album that returne to better days. It was the New Pop kid in me keeping up until the 90's.

The Go Gos debut and even Talk Show are decent memories, and I still have the later today (thanks to the Dollar used bin I go through for the reunion after not having the album for years).

Good idea Carpe, but this already exists

I am with you on my man JT.

I suppose I would put EL-P in there, as he was originally in Company Flow. Aceyalone of Freestyle Fellowship. GZA and Ghostface of Wu-Tang Clan, whilst Raekwon, ODB and Method Man are either pretty close or on par (selected albums of course).

Going really old school, Simon was much, much better off once he ditched Garfunkel. Dude was dead weight.

I disagree with Misfits. I enjoyed Danzig's first 3-4 albums but I much prefer Misfits (with Danzig of course).
