Interview With Live’s Ed Kowalczyk: He Alone. The Same, But Better

Parting from Live in 2009 (a departure not free from drama and its fair share of finger-pointing), vocalist Ed Kowalczyk has struck out on his own. After a bout with flagging inspiration and disinterest, Kowalczyk released a solo album, Alive, in July of 2010. I recently spoke with him …
