Michael Sweet returns to TIJ to celebrate his 10th solo album, “Ten,” and the 33rd anniversary of Stryper’s most popular album, “To Hell With The Devil!” Michael talks about the album’s controversial album cover that got them banned from some retailers, and ultimately had to be replaced. He also talks about the power of MTV, and how Stryper went from clubs to arenas overnight with virtually no radio play. He speaks about the songwriting and creative process, the many bass players during that era, the inventive black and yellow stage costumes, and the stigma and discrimination they faced as a Christian rock band.
