Ed Kowalzcyk, former lead singer for Live, played the entirety of the band’s classic perfect album ‘Throwing Copper’ at the sold out Belly Up Tavern in Solana Beach, CA on April 1, 2015. Ed played guitar and sang stripped down versions of every song on the album in order, with “no Spotify shuffle” as he put it. It was incredible to feel the intensity and passion coming through his voice, even though he was less animated than he was in the past while performing with the Live band. He had assistance on various guitars from Zak Loy, so it wasn’t all acoustic and mellow. The video wall added depth to the performance and everyone in the sold out crowd was mesmerized and singing along to what is truly one of the all time classic rock albums. One fan observed that listening to Ed deliver his personal, passionate vocals was like a conduit to heaven. Music certainly has the ability to connect people on a primal level, and this show was one of those experiences.
