Michael Sweet on Sweet & Lynch: "We’re different"

Stryper frontman Michael Sweet insists that Sweet & Lynch, his project with ex-Dokken guitarist George Lynch, is more than just a stopgap formed with the intention of making money.

Sweet was approached to make an all-star record by Serafino Perugino, president of Stryper’s record label Frontiers and the architect of several such conveyor belt-type collaborations, a recent example being Revolution Saints, who pooled past and present members of Whitesnake, Night Ranger and Journey.

The singer understands why fans are wary of projects that mix and match musicians who would not usually work together, but he excludes Sweet & Lynch – completed by bassist James Lomenzo (Megadeth, White Lion, David Lee Roth and Ozzy Osbourne) and drummer Brian Tichy (Whitesnake, Ozzy, Billy Idol) – from that phenomenon.
