The lead guitarist from The Cars (who knew they had a "lead" guitarist?), Elliot Easton released a really good neo-pop album in 1985, Change No Change. Featuring material written by Easton and Jules Shear, it sounded more like The Rembrandts than The Cars, and Elliot acquitted himself on vocals nicely (imagine a flatter version of Robin Zander or Elvis Costello). When The Cars broke up, Easton turned up on various albums as a guest, produced a few, and formed Elliot Easton's Tiki Gods for some one-off projects in the '90s.
