I celebrate six big years of podcasting with part 1 of my conversation with guest Brian Salvatore as we discuss our favorite solo artists. I've also got the Bonehead of the Week and music from Bob Mould, Ryan Adams, Mike Watt and Stephen Malkmus and the Jicks.

Show notes:

- Recorded via Skype

- Brian contends that Bob Mould's work in Sugar is better than Husker Du; Jay vehemently disagrees

- Jay: Elliott Smith went in a different direction after Heatmiser

- Are Josh Homme or Dave Grohl considered solo artists?

- Jay: Lennon and McCartney both made great albums on their own, but also some clunkers

- Jay: Michael Jackson became probably the biggest artist of all time

- Ozzy's early solo work was terrific

- The ridiculous story behind Sabbath's Born Again album

- Paul Simon's still going strong

- Phil Collins was huge in the '80s

- Brian: Mike Nesmith's early solo work was excellent

- Jay: Nick Cave forged a dark path after The Birthday Party

- Brian: Ryan Adams made a classic album and several good ones

- Mike Watt's soldiered on over the years

- Jay: Stephen Malkmus has been consistently good since Pavement

- Brian prefers the later Pavement albums

- Bonehead of the Week

Music:
Bob Mould - A Good Idea (live)

Ryan Adams - Shakedown on 9th Street (live)

Mike Watt - Against the '70s (live)

Stephen Malkmus and the Jicks - (Do Not Feed the) Oyster
