Mark Brown of the Rocky Mountain News spoke with No Doubt guitarist Tom Dumont about nagging rumors that lead singer Gwen Stefani will branch out to a solo album. Dumont said, “People have been saying Gwen is gonna leave us for years now. We all have a healthy, honest attitude about it. It would be healthy for her to go off and do her own thing outside the band. It’s easy to fall into a rut when you play with the same people for years. The worst thing you can do is (violate) that cliche — if you love someone, set them free.” Rockymountainnews.com has since removed the article.
