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.
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.
