Collective Soul, the multi-platinum rock band, responsible for seven #1 hits starting with 1993’s anthemic hit “Shine” and onto “December,” “The World I Know,” that led to a duet with Elton John, a song on the hit Twilight soundtrack, and eight acclaimed albums.
Collective Soul—Ed Roland [vocals, guitars, keyboards], Dean Roland [guitars], Will Turpin [bass], Jesse Triplett [guitars], and Johnny Rabb [drums]—staunchly and proudly remain a rock ‘n’ roll band through and through.
“We’re an honest rock ‘n’ roll band,” affirms Roland. “We’re not going to pretend like we’re something else. We’re not chasing anything. We are proud of our accomplishments and what we do. We pride ourselves on playing rock ‘n’ roll. So, let’s fucking rock.”
Following the release of the group’s ninth full-length album See What You Started by Continuing (which captured #1 on Billboard’s Alternative Albums Chart and garnered praise from USA Today), the boys made a collective decision to record more than 160 shows over the course of the next two years. Re-energized by the addition of Triplett and Rabb, the gigs saw Collective Soul firing on all cylinders.
Returning from the road, they cherry-picked the best performances from that marathon of touring to comprise Collective Soul – Live. Fittingly, they introduce the collection with a live version of their biggest hit 1993’s “Shine”—which would be crowned #1 Album Rock Song of 1994, win a Billboard award for “Top Rock Track,” land on VH1’s “100 Greatest Songs of the ‘90s,” and notch Dolly Parton a GRAMMY® Award for “Best Vocal Performance” on her 2001 cover.
