April 22, 2014, 3 years ago
STRYPER’s MICHAEL SWEET goes One On One with Mitch Lafon and talks about his I’m Not Your Suicide solo album and Honestly: My Life And Stryper Revealed autobiography. The two also discuss writing for a solo album compared to a Stryper album, the upcoming Michael Sweet/ GEORGE LYNCH (Ex-DOKKEN) album, the bullying Michael endured as a child, the ChildHelp charity, losing his wife to cancer, Jim & Tammy Faye Bakker, ANTHRAX's Scott Ian, CHARRED WALLS OF THE DAMNED's Richard Christy and his time in the band BOSTON.
Sweet will release his new solo album, I'm Not Your Suicide, and his new book, Honestly: My Life And Stryper Revealed, on May 6th. He has posted an excerpt from Chapter 30, found below:"Despite knowing that I needed to get out of this band, I felt guilty for letting Rob, Tim, and Oz down. Mostly Rob. Actually, that is the only reason it took me so long to do it. I didn’t want to let them down. I wanted out, I just didn’t know how to go about it."
The book is available for pre-order here.
Sweet recently checked in with the following update:"I've spent the past several years pouring my heart and soul into an autobiographical book. The name of the book is Honestly: My Life And Stryper Reveled, and I'm very excited to report that it is now available at MichaelSweet.com.
It's a pre-sale campaign with all sorts of extras like a chance to win an ESP guitar that I used to make the upcoming solo album to coincide with the book, autographed bookmarks, an instant download of a chapter from the book and an unreleased song from the new album featuring Tony Harnell of TNT.
I've told all the stories of my life in this book, good or bad, and I've shared with you the most honest account of my life in and out of Stryper. I hope you enjoy it and I'm eternally grateful for your undying support and belief in all that I do.
Below is a video of me talking more about the project and here is a link to purchase the book and CD.
God Bless you all - Love & Respect."
