What are some good, male solo artists?

It's kinda vague, so if it helps, I really like Bruce Springsteen, Andrew Bird, Elliott Smith, Patrick Wolf, Sufjan Stevens, and I like Bob Dylan and Damien Rice too, though I haven't listened to them all that much. I don't really like Bright Eyes, Jack Johnson, or Jason Mraz too much.

Thanks. =]

Update:

Thanks, I've only listened to John Lennon's album Imagine before, but I like his stuff a lot. I'll check out some of his other stuff too. =]

    John Hiatt -- very gifted singer/songwriter who has had a number of his songs become big hits -- for others (e.g., "Angel Eyes," "Thing Called Love," "Sure as I'm Sittin' Here").

    Don Henley -- IMO he's the best of the Eagles, and his solo work outshines most of the Eagles' material.

    Webb Wilder -- nothing fancy, just good, straight ahead roots rock.

    Marshall Crenshaw -- see comment on Webb Wilder.

    You should definitely check out Leonard Cohen especially his first album Songs of Leonard Cohen, and I would also recommend John Lennon's album Plastic Ono Band.

    Bryan Adams and Chris Cornell come to mind as excellent solo artists.. if you wind up looking up Chris Cornell, also look up his work in the band Soundgarden (especially the song "Black Hole Sun"), and his theme for Casino Royale, the 2006 James Bond picture.
