Once should be enough.

One is twice too many times.

why exactly did Dave Mathews start a solo career? he was perfectly fine in DMB, and they're still together, Dave included. is there REALLY that much pressure to have EVERYONE start a solo career? what was his train of thought?

"huh, i don't get enough recognition in a band that is NAMED after me, i should start a solo career"

Dave, we love you just the way you are. Don't blow it with a solo album.

The band was one bad argument away from a brake-up between 2000 - 02 but Matthews never stopped writing music. A handful of songs written just didn't fit in his full band setting and those grew into a full album. So really the solo album was more of a desire to just keep putting out music than any sort of pressure or boosting of his own ego like you make it out to be.

DMB was taking a break so he decided to record a solo album, fools. Anything wrong with that? The result was a fantastic album. Not HOF worthy on his own though.

Steve Miller's in solo, so it might happen.
