I actually don't think it's all that difficult with one person, and here's why:
When I first tried to beat him all I wanted was his tail, so I spent an hour or so playing him solo, just trying to get his tail, and learn his moves and how he fights. He's really not too bad if you just take your time and read your moves, much like other bosses. You'll die if you get too greedy attacking and don't have stamina to run away or block when necessary... just like other bosses. For the most part though, even with the mid-roll, you can beat him solo with patience.
Now... if you want the tail, I think it's absolutely easier to accomplish with 1 or 2 people helping you. Also... for his fire attacks, if you have the Silver Pendant..... it makes this fight slightly easier I think, just like Manus.
FYI... I think all of the bosses in the DLC are slightly more difficult than many of the normal bosses in the original portions of the game. The reason behind this is that I think the new bosses are all aggressive, and all deal high damage, and have high HP (although the more I fight the Sanctuary Guardian the easier it gets.... almost laughably easy if you have a strong weapon). Many people just tank through the game with Havel's armor... but I think these bosses, at least at lower levels, require more skills in the sense that the player has to manage their stamina a little better than normal. This is double for Kalameet and Manus with their "magic attacks".
