Michael Sweet, the voice of Stryper, has made a pretty good living in music all these years. He has recorded solo albums, fronted the legendary band Boston on tour as well as T&N, a unit that features the members of Dokken sans Don. He always appears jovial and comfortable in his faith. Hard knocks have not beaten him down. Not even when he lost his beloved first wife to cancer, on which the anniversary of her passing was also the date of our scheduled interview.
