    JWO Solo Album? Should He Do It?

    I'm REALLY jonesing for this.

    Yes, Jamie has a reputation for humility, modesty, being a team player.

    But I'd love to encourage him to get in the studio with acoustic guitar and lift up that soulful voice.
    If James Taylor, John Mellencamp, Brian Adams, etc. can do this: Why not JWO?


    How about it? Anybody with me?

    Diamond? Any thoughts?

    "Anyone Else"?

    Jwol !

    like Steve, i would buy TWO copies! thats a no brainer-

    This has been thrown around for a long time-
    But if it took the FIXX 10 years to get an album together- and fine tuned,
    one person's personal ideas might take longer to get recorded- since its ALL YOU (one person!) i can see it becoming a painstaking process... and trusting others to do drumz/vox, etc and really liking it (or telling them NO thats not what i had in mind..) its lots of compromising i m sure.... and JWO is so lighthearted and polite- dont think he could tell someone NO!

    I'm pretty sure he still teaches guitar, gigs with the Fixxies, and maintains a family, so i question how much free time would he have to complete it? And does he have access to all the recording equipment nearby?
    (the comeback here is , "well Cy has done it a few times!")

    Maybe we can con Nick Jackson and SWT to pester him into doing an EP and see how the process goes...

    He is too important of a guitarist to not try and leave his own mark on this world......

    Whatever he chooses- We will understand.....

    I would buy it too. No doubt.
    One day i started collecting stuff he just played guitar on as a guest like Brian Eno, Depeche Mode, Steve Nicks, Cindy Lauper, Daryl Hall, ... It is so much fun to figure him out. So individual, one recognizes him immediately.
