Happy Birthday today (July 16) to Ed Kowalczyk. The former Live singer is 46. Other rockers celebrating include current Soil/ex Drowning Pool frontman Ryan McCombs (43) and Police drummer Stewart Copeland (65).

Ed Kowalczyk and the band Live achieved worldwide success with the 1994 album Throwing Copper. The album featured a string of hit singles including the song “Lightning Crashes” and would go on to sell over 8 million copies. It stayed on top of the Billboard Mainstream Rock Tracks chart for 10 consecutive weeks. Other singles from the album included “Selling the Drama”, “I Alone”, and “All Over You”. The band has sold over 20 million albums in the U.S. and had their most success with Kowalczyk on lead vocals. He left the band in 2009 and has since launched a solo career. In 2016 the original Live reunited for a tour and the band is working on a new album. Great to see this great band back together. Cheers to Ed Kowalczyk on his birthday today!
