Better Now - Collective Soul
Few people know what it’s like to be “better now” more than Collective Soul front man Ed Roland. The band most known for its mega hits “Shine,” “The World I Know,” and “Heavy” took a devastating hiatus in the early 2000s due to record label issues and an affair between the band’s guitar player and Ed Roland’s wife. Ed and the band used the time off to good use, and with “Better Now” they announced their presence back on the scene. The song brought the band back to prominence with Collective Soul’s signature positivity and, of course, a brand new guitar player.
