Im probably alone among my rock-critical peers in my affection for Wanderlust, last years solo debut by Mr. Gwen Stefani. So unless youve spun the record yourself, you might not be aware that nobody outside Nashville is writing better power ballads right now. Give this dude a mentor spot on American Idol and hell stage a heartland invasion that Steve Perry could admire. With Endless Hallway.
