Now I’d like to believe the name isn’t a poke at the behaviour of former +Live+ bandmate and lead singer, Ed Kowalczyk, but I just can’t help but feel that it might. Just as Ed; though he claims otherwise; seems to have done by titling his recent solo debut, “Alive”…
And so, Chad Taylor, Chad Gracey and Patrick Dahlheimer’s side project for the proposed 2 year hiatus took the driver’s seat after Ed Kowalczyk; without the band’s knowing; obtained sole publishing rights to +Live+ songs, subsequently initiating a full disbandment (nice one, friend!). Good thing transgressions don’t factor into my music consumption!
Sans singer, they recruited Candlebox’s Kevin Martin…

I can't remember the right order, but these are the songs Ed performed in Groningen:
Hit songs of Live (in order of release):
The Beauty of Gray
Selling the Drama
All Over You
The Dolphin's Cry
They Stood Up for Love
Songs from 'Alive' (in track order):
The Great Beyond
Drink (Everlasting Love)
Just in Time
Fire on the Mountain
Which means Ed did all songs (except one) from his solo album, "Alive". Ed's performance of Live's 9/11-song "Overcome" was a huge surprise (since he doesn't seem to include it a lot lately), but well.. 9/11 was less than one week away, so I pretty much guess that's the reason why he performed it.
Highlights for me definitely were the tandem "All Over You"/"Selling the Drama" (the 4th and 5th song of the setlist), "The Great Beyond"…
