An often used songwriter & musician. Here's his solo album from 1985. Including some interesting names. And good songs. Not very hard rockin', but if you're into the Danny Spanos stuff, the softer side of rock with good songs, you'll like this one.

Talkin' bout a rare one. A hard to get shining pearl here. I guess the norwegian pop rock duo brought in Mick Ronson to benefit from his involvement and success with Dalbello. This album might be described as close to Dalbello, but also a bit Edie Brickell & New Bohemians, good pop rock songs. Mr. Ronson didn't just produce, but are highly involved on most tracks here, on guitar, organ, backing vocals, synth, even tambourine. Definately one for the fans of his work, and the collectors. Enjoy!
