Evanescence’s famous frontwoman Amy Lee spoke in a recent interview with Lazer 103.3 radio about the earlier days of the band and revealed the regrets she had about those days.
As you might remember, Evanescence’s fame started with the first album they released back in 2003, Fallen. This album is one of the best-selling albums of the 21st century and peaked a number three in the US Billboard 200 charts.
