Ed Kowalczyk the former lead singer of the band ‘Live’ is being sued for two million dollars using the bands name to promote is solo shows. Former Live guitarist Chad Taylor, bass player Patrick Dahlheimer and drummer Chad Gracey has hired new singer Chris Shinn and continue to perform. But they’re angry that Kowalczyk named his solo album Alive and is advertising his shows as “Ed Kowalczyk of Live”. 

This is not the first time bad blood has come between the members of Live, according to recent article in classic rock magazine; The latest court papers state for “an injunction plus $2 million in statutory damages for claims of trademark infringement, false designation of original and trademark dilution.”

Ed Kowalczk said in 2011

I had come to the end of a chapter in my life and wanted to spread my wings beyond what I had been doing. The allegations levelled at me were all absolutely untrue. I have no plans to work with those individuals again. The spirit of Live is alive and well in my performances and my new material.

Meanwhile Taylor said

Ed will no longer be the vocalist for Live. He is no friend of mine or the lifelong fans of Live.
