Yes, the title is true. The alternative band Live, is essentially dead. One of my favorite 90s bands, I was notified that about a week and a half ago, that singer Ed Kowalczyk had left Live permenantly (he is still alive though, so don't get the wrong idea from the title), while the rest of Live is on a two year hiatus. When I heard this, I wasn't at first to depressed, since I haven't listened to much of them in about a year. I then heard their 2008 live album, and quite literally almost cried when my favorite singles came on.
This is why I would like to use this blog post to mourn the loss of a great band, and can only hope that one day that "Live" one day decides to live again.
Live's most well known single, Lightning Crashes
, from 1995
Live's final single, Forever
, from 2008
As far as my site
being updated goes, I have a newish review up, for a CD you've probably not heard of. I have also heard the new Mighty Mighty Bosstones CD, and will review that and probably something else this weekend.
