Taste of Fort Collins: 5 Things to Know About Collective Soul
Townsquare Media's 'Taste of Fort Collins' brings Collective Soul to Old Town on Saturday night, June 6, 2020. Here's a fistful of thing to know about the band.
Three-day weekend passes are now on sale for Townsquare Media of Northern Colorado's event- the 24th Annual Taste of Fort Collins. One of the headling bands that weekend will be Collective Soul.
Let's take a look at five things you may not know about the band.
They started out on in Stockbridge, Georgia on an independent record label with their first album Hints Allegations and Things Left Unsaid, which featured 'Shine.' After that, they were signed to Atlantic.
Founding member, Ed Roland, was reading 'Fountainhead' when the band was kicking around names, and he liked the quote, ['I knew what I was doing. I wanted power over a collective soul and I got it. A collective soul.']
Collective Soul is known for hits 'Shine,' 'December,' 'The World I know' and others, but their 1999 single 'Heavy' from Dosage, spent 15 weeks on top of the Mainstream Rock charts, which set a record at that time.
From their 7th album, Aterwards, the single 'Hollywood' became the theme for the TV hit show.
Collective Soul played at the 1994 incarnation of Woodstock, just in time for their huge hit 'Shine,' and then again at the 1999 Woodstock, where they played hits including 'Heavy.'
