Recently for those of you who doesn't have the internals of lennox cups previously known as the common unix printing system. I think people just call it cups now. The acronym doesn't isn't really used and there's not many updates recently and it's going to be an interesting history cups because i think the lead developer michael sweet worked on it for a fair while and then in two thousand and seven apple released Macos ten and they shipped with cups because it's a unix like operating system. They used cups to implement their printing system over there and they hired michael sweet. The cups developer To continue working on it to keep maintaining it while it shipping apple's desktop operating system. And apparently he left apple at the start of twenty twenty two other interesting things. And it's been noted..

"Printing guy for lennox and i've known for a long time oversee chemical but it was just funny saying quote from him in an article about apple on the register. He just jumped off the page at me. So that's one eight point two so all we all doomed are apprentice. No longer going to accept jobson get papajohns and stuff as a result of this source. Everything guide to carry on his normal well. It's open source code. So i think everything's gonna be fine. They've they've Made an announcement that they can do. Ten pre folks of the of the cups repulsed the trees so they can continue using it and yet either. Everyone's gonna just move over to the new a tree or it will just be temporary and they'll figure something out and moved back to the to the main re poke depending upon whether apple decided to polyphony ground still maintaining it all over. Maybe they'll develop print. I mean it's not like the two cups made it all horrible impropriety. And you know. They couldn't is still open source and still all these years. Even while apple were very stewards of that project. There was still open printing. The old limits printing and people maintaining living drivers. So it wasn't. It wasn't a catastrophe. A lot of people thought it would be an apple hired. Michael sweet side. Yeah i just thought it was an interesting article and it's actually a disaster toil. Yeah cool martin. What's next well good news. The ross reply compute macho for is now available. The yes i these widely known. I think among sort of like the consumers of raspberry pi products but the compute modules in the past basically cut down versions of the raspberry pi that device manufacturers can imbed in their electric's to give it some smart some compute power maybe some. Gps power and through its pins exposes lanes to other devices and peripherals that it can integrate with and the last one was obviously the compute module. Three which was derived from the raspberry pi three and this is the refreshed addition the is essentially a raspberry pi full on this. Cut down many bold that you can use to make you know televisions and smart cars or whatever it is you want to create. I remember some years ago. You and i m wc and we had some industrial Control like blade things and inside. Those were compete modules. At what generation. They were then it would have been like probably to something like that..

"Your life go do it now now. As the principal songwriter we're talking about the sunlight the way which is still classic striper Sondhi guys played in this day and probably the best stripes on that. You didn't write. How did that come into play? Gio guys submit it to you and say what do you think of this. Did you Kinda have approval over everything. No is actually wrote that Song Yeah exactly exactly yeah. I think it's one of our heaviest songs best song I'd argue. That and I said the best on that you never wrote. Oh no no no no no totally. It's one of those things where the way it worked back in the day and it still works to this. Thanks is songs often are submitted. Committed and often don't work you know like back. In the day for example there was some songs that were submitted that were very almost i. I WANNA say almost like like Elton John. Sh- really good but more so would fit Elton John Album or songs that might fit this style album or songs that might fit that style album. And you've got to really be careful as you know being in a band about the style of Song you're doing is got to fit who you are and what you've you've built you know and it's got to be have that striper sound to it ness strap striper style to it. If it doesn't why are you doing it. It can't be the mentality and I've heard this said among spans before like. Hey man you know as long as you know five of the songs good what does it matter what the other five songs sound like like you got to laugh at that. That's one of the most ridiculous things anybody can say they need to all be great and then it all fit within the album. So that's very important thing and you know it. It's hard being in the band and being a guy that makes those decisions because a lot of times uh-huh you have to outvote the popular vote. You know. It's gotta be what's best for the album especially as an producer. Yeah that's something that a lot of people don't even for myself I self as as we've matured songwriters and work with different people you know. Sometimes you gotta take yourself out of the equation like you mentioned what's best for the song what's best for the album exactly best the band no doubt about it like you know you fast forward to in God we trust. There's a few songs on that album that I wish we hadn't allowed to be on the album. You know and It's one of one of the songs is coming to the ever life and it. It's it's it's just not that it's not as good a song as the rest. It's just that in. My opinion doesn't fit with the rest you know and it was it was uninspired. It was hard seeing. That is the singer is. It's very difficult to go and sing a song. If you're not feeling the song you know you gotta be. He's feeling it in like a passionate about in an excited about it in if you're not you got a question whether or not it should be on there. So that's that's an that's an example of one that I feel maybe should not have made it on the album. We might have should've said well. Let's come up with something better than this song And there's other other songs over the years to probably from every album but that's just an instant example of The flip side of that coin. When you talk about side to recommend side lied one had all the big hits calling you free honesty side too strong as well? But it's almost like there's three rockers. A real commerciality soon and another ballad young is that on purpose. Are Those the best songs had or did you say listen. We've got to have a certain amount of rockers A Guy Holding on very poppy which is also part of striper. I persona as well. Is that calculator. Does that just kind of what came out of you guys at the time. I think it's just what comes out. you know we were listening to myself as a writer. I was listening the two priests every bit as much as I was listening to journey so I loved that side of music as well. loverboy journey. He sticks You know Gosh So many bally's survivor. So many Balaji kind of bands that have more about. I love that and I think that came out in my writing came out in our in our albums We didn't sit down and say okay. We gotta have this in that and we don't have this and we don't have We didn't do it that way. We just Kinda wrote the album and it came out as it came out but oddly enough we were on this ballad kick for a while you know with you. Know soldiers under the command with els devil with in God. We trust their ballots And then we're on this. We got to have the book in heavy tracks. And you know I always I'll tell you my favorite songs on the devil. My my favorite heavy track on that on that album is more than a man with easily hands down in my opinion the best song on the album in terms terms that heavy and for so many reasons and still to this day live. That's one of the best songs that goes over the best live and then my favorite pop song album is the one you just mentioned which is holding on but nobody really knows about that song it never got the recognition or the light of day that calling calling on you got and it should have. I'll tell you this when you guys played it live when you did. Health Devil in its entirety. Christie was crying during holding on. What does he really does? He like that one as well. He loves it he loves it so they said there's a contingency of your fans who love that song allow. Well it's got this special unique mix of edge in pop in you know I it and that's the that it goes for calling on you that goes for Always there for you that there's so many songs another one that I it kind of takes a back seat. That's one of my favorite songs on soldiers under command. End is waiting for a love. That's real that's a real poppy slash metal track to and it's got the Combo of both when you as we we start to wind down here when you guys did that tour playing to Helen's entirety. What songs were fun to play because like we said you played to hell call on you free all the time more than a man but like you mentioned? There's a bunch of songs that you never have played or maybe never played live at all. Well Yeah Holding on which we played rarely a AH. We didn't play too often back today. That was always a fun one to play when we started playing it recently in Japan and here in the states it became one of my favorites. I reminded reminded me of how cool it is. What a great song is more than a man always we? That's probably from day one every night and and I love that song. There's something about it never gets old. It's got such powerful Christian lyrics really does it really cheesy. They're not cheesy. They were Jesus in your heart. It's time for you to start giving God the glory like you know. It's a fine line for for a band writing Christian lyrics to and not be cheesy but that one I felt it'd be just so powerful total like you just wanted to put on the armor of God and go fight some Satanists or something no doubt about it man for sure. And that's that's one of my favorites and then another one that I always loved playing and we don't play it very often was rocking the world. Great Soon I I love playing that Song Live and you know I don't know why we don't but it's just in the old days we used to all the time and I'll never forget the feeling at such an energy live and people loved it great chorus Great Hook great breakdown to sing along in the middle you know so yeah yeah yeah man no doubt so here. We are thirty three years later. The legacy of the devil as as your biggest record. I think it sold two million albums. uh-huh I mean that's probably your highest seller. I would imagine. Well you know what's funny about that and I wish we could go and and we could We just need to take the time and money to do it and really rallied tally. The numbers because two million was the certified cutoff. Okay but since then it's sold a lot a lot more so I'm not even sure where we're at with that album but far beyond that far beyond two million And you know well it's interesting because striper I think we've we've kind of done the numbers on all the albums over the years uncertified. We're we're sitting in AH ten million market plus which Kinda crazy to me for a band like us because Who would have known who would have thought that aband- four nobody's from Orange county singing about God would ever accomplish such a thing and it's really mind blowing? Yeah just googled. Something here says the devil went on and received a Grammy Nomination and was certified platinum on January six nineteen eighty-eight selling more than two million copies. So that was to certified platinum and eighty eight thirty years ago. Sure there's got to be another million in there somewhere. Oh Yeah it's it's quite a few more and I've asked someone to help me. You put together those numbers in. We haven't talked to in a while but I would love to know the facts on those numbers to be. Okay here are the hard sales also be amazing last couple of questions for you So you mentioned that next year you might WANNA do Michael sweet electric ban full band. Show what do you have coming up over over the next over the next year before that quote striper starting a new album in January. You probably written ten great songs for it already. I haven't yet and that's the scary thing and I always freak myself out because I always wait last minute. I work well under pressure. And that's what helps me to deliver but man dude. I haven't ridden one song. And then we start in a little over a month so I'm thinking okay. I better get to work here and we're going to turn that in in probably April April. May I'm going to do solo show stripe he's GonNa do striper shows lot of striper shows a lot of Solo shows. I got this son. Bomb thing with Tracy Tracy guns that. I'm going to be singing on sometime next year. It was supposed to be this year and wound up getting pushed back a little bit due to schedule conflicts and And then I'm going to still keep working on a another album it you'll hook stra full links and then I'm also talking about the next solo album in how to who achieved achieve that. So I'm just GonNa keep doing what I what I'm doing people ask me if I'm going to do another sweet lynch album. I really don't know I want that to be the. You know a dual joint effort. I wanted us to both work the same. I want to go toward the same. And if that's not going to happen I don't WanNa do good so it probably won't happen but you never know Just look at it this way. I got to write off a bucket list. Check off a bucket list playing with George George Lynch One of my favorite guitar player. So there you go There's a lot in store man. I'm I'm fifty six years old. I've got at least a little more time left in. Let me and I'm going to try to crank out another ten solo albums in another ten or eleven stripe problems if I can..

"Just memories of of the songs sure Abyss to hell with the devil. First of all I mean back in those days even this day. I'm a big believer album. Has To have an intro and a business perfect and it's a great way. Probably Open the concert at that time frame. Because you get the little opening the synthesizer piece going into this classic title track. Tell so both of those. That is a thing that we we wanted an intro. We wanted something that sounded like hell like the abyss. You know and the keyboard player that played on that album which has guy by John Van Venta Grin. He played on sleep. Played all of me. And he was the guy that Helped US create that that one minute long or a little over minute long long a piece and it's perfect because it really does sound like hell it sounds like those little creatures making the sounds. It sounds like demons. Yes and it has that eerie creepy hellish sound to it so it was perfect We Bang that out pretty quickly and then how about a two. The health developed. Sounds like from what you mentioned before. It sounds like a roberts sweet Phrase that is I mean rob came up with the title and help him the lyrics Eriksen in you know I wrote the music to the song and Kind of finish the lyrics and you know. It's that straight ahead anthem. Perfect anthem anthem. Power Rock metal kind of track. And that's the Song we've finished mixed that we went to the car in popped in the cassette player player and listen to and looked at each other. Like WHOA. We got something here. That's the one that solidified that it's also to like. I said as a fan when you hear that as a as a service always at great opening tracks and that one was like you know you always kind of and you know this is as you you know you put on the new van Halen record or the new priests record you know when something comes out of the gates was such power you just like yes. Oh you're back. My lad is back totally I mean. That's the first impression right sure and even then even though we live in a much greater elastic attention span. Dow How You know that's why people just in my opinion don't buy full albums and they just listen to one song or stream two songs or what have you. The attention span can't can't handle a fooling album is still important even then to grab them and keep their attention. You know And that was the first impression that first song so it was a big deal. S- talk about The next song which was the first single calling on you interesting to me because I wanna know kind of what was the time line between the record coming out because it came out October. Twenty four hundred eighty six. When did it start was calling on you that broke Okon on? MTV I it was the relationship between striper and MTV at that point it was it was calling on you and I remember all the conversations between management the label of the difficulty level of trying to get MTV to play our stuff. I just remember and we did everything we could get them like. Even hiring the company Wayne is him who did the Bon Jovi videos? And you know we we. We did everything we could to make it that much easier for. MTV The playoffs because we knew it was going to be a hurdle in a mountain to climb and it was is and it seems like everything we did always came back with comments we in the video and then it will come back. Oh we don't like this or can you change that and we're not happy about this and we would have to actually re editing things and and it began to feel like it was just the striper thing. I don't know that that's true or not. I can't confirm that but it felt that way and then it was funny because once they would finally approve it in the video would go up. It would go wind up going to number one in beating out poison poison and Motley crue and Bon Jovi. And all these other videos at number one go to number one and and I think that was the final thing to make. Say Wow okay. MTV What are you what are you going to say the next time around and then we would submit video and then they would still complain. It was just. It was a never ending battle. But it's so amazing. Because you know I I can't remember I mean nowadays to be on rock. Radio is still very very important and I'm sure it was back then too but you'd never heard striper on the radio. Oh but you guys are all over the video channels and MTV and much music in Canada so it was almost like you superseded the radio by taking advantage of this way more important born medium at that time. Yeah we had to be creative and the sad truth of the matter is whether anyone wants to admit this or not is we are in word. Discriminated emanate against. And there's no other way to put it and we still are in because of who we are because we sing about God 'cause we throw out bibles in we are a quote unquote Christian band. You know I don't like that label. Everybody knows that already. But that's what people refer to us as soon as and because of that were discriminated against with radio with videos with numbers with opening hang up for other bands with you name it across the whole board and that's just the way that it is but do you think like for the amount that is the quote unquote held you back. It's also been not advantage in a lot of ways but it has made you stand out like like. Do you think people like you because of it as many people don't like you because of it I think so. I think I think that it has shown integrity Freddie and perseverance in and gained US respect because it and then at the same time Because of what we stand for I think it's a very a powerful thing and and I think most people not all but most people even if it's just internally in silently respect that in applaud that it But but at the same time it also opens the door for us to be the laughingstock in DB spat on and mocked at and booed at and. And 'cause we've experienced all that as well right right. was there a time when calling you and free were on the Dallas Charts at the same time. I believe I believe that calling on you and free were on at the same time And I could be mistaken. It could've been free and and honestly but there was a time when we had two videos in the top ten countdown and that is absolutely true and all three of those videos went to number one calling on you. Free and honestly in. That was quite astonishing gene for a ban. That wasn't getting any airplay other than just MTV airplay which was probably way more valuable. Yeah it was really mind blowing. I mean look was there you guys you guys look great. I mean that's exactly what bands at that time frame. You know one thing. I always said about other Christian Christian rock band but other the band's saying about Christie lyrics before striper you know God bless them but Petra and the Daniel Band and those guys looked like people's fathers. You know kind of like like nerdy guys. Mustaches kind of balding guys look like you know. Look like you're in Van Halen and I thought that you can look cool and play you. You know heavy metal about Jesus as well. Yeah totally man. I'm you and I think the reason for that S- is we grew up an L. A.. Street Scene Club obscene Seeing van Halen and yesterday today and smile and quiet riot and all these bands. And that's those who are roots which we were a house band with radic is already for years. Mickey rat is at the time and you know we we were there. We were in it. We were raised in it. Brought up in it and cut our teeth on it and you know that's who we were so when we became we changed all the lyrics and we became striper. We didn't know any other way. We just continued being who we were in terms of our looks our attitude in our sound. I mean that's it's all that we knew that translated. I think it's one of the reasons why you guys were such a perfect band for the MTV era honestly still probably is. Is that your biggest hit to date in terms of charting. Yes it is. It's the one and we literally at that time. Saw The power of the song we we went from clubs in theaters into arenas during that tour so on the to how was it L. Tour which lasted over a ear or close. Yeah just over a year we wound up going into moving into arenas and and I'll never forget the the power and the feeling we know that it it. It literally happened overnight and we saw the fan base just explode and go from you know hundreds to thousands In the blink of an eye once again to you mentioned like and there was. I'm sure you did but I never saw it straight for opening for anybody like you. Had METALLICA ALICA. Open for Ozzy and Bond Jobe Ovid for kiss and but you guys never had that tour he basically just did this all on your own getting two arenas we built it all on our own. We did I mean in the early days we open for few bands like Bon Jovi came through town. We opened for Bon Jovi. We Open for anthrax. We open for Zebra. There were a few bands but never on a full tour is what I mean. No never on a full tour in the early days. Yes but then once we got into tour mode we headlined headlines. And you know every all bands open for us. I mean we had hurricane open for us so we had t and t open for us. loudness open fresh. We had white lion open for us And trickster open for us on and on and on and on and We were very fortunate enough to build the name. Aim The brand to the point where we were able to bring in The tickets in the butts into the seats and and headline really cool. Okay next next up onto health. The devil is the way written by Fox but before we talk about that Song I got a message to share from you from our friends at the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. They want everyone to have a happy and safe holiday. I do too and I know you guys know about the risks of driving drunk you get in a crash. People get hurt killed Spent time in jail. We'll get arrested so many bad things can happen but let's take a moment to look at some surprising statistics that you might not know. Almost twenty nine people die every day in alcohol vehicle crashes. That's one person. Every fifty minutes five zero and even though drunk driving fatalities of fallen by a third and the last three decades drunk driving crashes still claimed more than ten thousand lives each year. Many people are unaware that driving while high could be just as dangerous thinking about that in two thousand in fifteen forty two percent of drivers killed in crashes tested positive for drugs not so harmless after all is it and get this from two thousand seven to two thousand fifteen marijuana you want us among drivers killed in crashes doubled so.

"See The costumes. Yes great wins especially for tells. The devil was a place in L. A.. That was like a costume makers some a friend of the family. How did that work back in those days? I wish there was a place place in La. That made our costumes that would've made life a lot easier and a lot less expensive. We used to early days for the beginning of striper Iraq's regime and then even the first strike for a photo shoot. You know we made a lot of our close so what we would do is we would anything. We couldn't find find black and yellow which was almost nothing we would find in black and white and we would diet yellow so we would have these big lots of yellow die on the stove and we would be different closed in there. We did that for years man and we would buy carpet shaggy real fuzzy like carpet and we painted yellow yellow black in wrap it around our legs and we did stuff like Dat. We made our own clothes and I gotTa say if you go back and look at those clothes sometimes. They were cooler than the new close. Yeah and I mean and then we started spending. You Know Ten grand a guy to have ray brown make our clothes who made clothes for everybody in that period. A whitesnake Bon Jovi. You name it and ray was. He was the dude he was the guy But you know it came with the price and I guess you get what you pay for. And that's when we had we got into the towels Adele of devil in God we trust against those were all ray brown a not not against the law. Actually against the law was a floor. She make clothes for white lying. She was his competition. Basically Gotcha so there was a certain. I know you could go to to kind of get the hot rock and roll clothes made. Oh yeah and I mean we'd go befitted and you know measured but in all that stuff we have to go to three or four times and you know an invalid literally to have two outfits made per guy it was you know eight to ten eight to ten grant we dropped forty fifty grand beazely. Hey and when you were in those on stage for five times a week I don't care if you have two outfits or not GonNa get smell either way too. Oh yeah and it's like you know you're pleading. Your pleading with certain band members are on top of. I'M NOT GONNA name names. Certain Band members are on top of that other members members are like. You're pleading with them to please wash clothes if we had a tour last year at one hundred fifty. Gigs drummer were the same clothes. Every show like no like three or four versions of the same outfit. You gotTa wash those more often than my God. Yes when you're on a bus again I won't name names but someone in the vanity wears the same clothes and then puts them in a in a junk funk right an extra bunk yet and when you walk by that bunk you think something's dead in there and and and you basically basically it gets to the point where you don't even go back there you know it's to stay away from that area and and let's talk a little bit the cover because when I bought the record I remember about it first day. Sam The record man in Winnipeg Manitoba Canada. It was the ABC ABC. Cover that that. Most people know which is black with kind of this really cool updated striper logo with a triangle in the back and it looked really really cool. I thought it was great. Little did yeah. I know that there was another cover. That was a million times cooler. That was that was banned. I guess from you guys. Yeah I know man well. It's it's that controversy that follows striper and people think were out to achieve that on our own and we're always trying to do things to create controversy in this just not true I mean I mean sometimes it is. I'M NOT GONNA lie. Sometimes it is but sometimes it's not and without album cover the title. Obviously he was a controversial move. But the album cover itself really wasn't we were just trying to depict You know the imagery to go along along with the title. And there's four angels you know basically it tackling Satan and then pinning them and put him back in hell. That's what it's supposed to look like. And there's a chain being ripped off of Satan's neck and thrown off in the distance and it's a Pentagram and you if you kind it looked closely you can see that and get that but at the same time I can understand why some people in the Church would be up in arms over that and they were certainly in in all the Christian bookstores decided they weren't going to carry that album cover because of the Pentagram in the foreground a yes or no read it right underneath the logo. Go Up and to this day when I post a picture of that. I get comments to this day if I post it on right now. Some would say what's to do with the Poona Graham. Wow Oh yeah and it's like people still don't get it and it's like well look at the chain that's that's attached to the Pentagram is kind of a leading to toward Satan. That's broken and you can kind of see and make out that. That's something that was just ripped off of his neck and tossed about But you know people just they wanna look for something that's not there. I mean we get comments all the time about the triangle. You know that we're aluminum body. Pretty I mean it's it goes on and on that we use imagery to portray who we really are really satanist and and we're really this really that and it's like really come on let's be real here G. H. is so silly. There's is there a timeframe when I remember nights and Satan Service we are sexual perverts is like every single band was really just a an agent for Satan and especially those evil striper people that claim to be for God. You know Y- Yeah Yeah I. It's it's so true and that's funny because I got caught up in that bandwagon Iraq to I mean going way back the night and state service thing with kids when I was younger I was like wow man that's bad. You know. It is so stupid right silly as if they were sitting around at a black magic ceremony. This is the name Kiss But it's nice. We're the four angels on the cover kind of supposed to be representing you guys. Will they don't kind of they do. I mean if I take my shirt enough I look just like that just like that right. I mean I'm built I. I work out every day and I'm really cut I just I like to stay humble and you're like the janitor from the simpsons. You just look normal. Take your shirt off and it looks like one of these angel stain. Say Event are they. Are they pull is so. We had a debate. I told you that we did the classic album class. which is something we do on the show? And we did soldiers versus to hell with the devil with Richard Christie and Howard Jones Jones as you know a great fans as well we're debating are the angels pulling the Innocent Guy Out of hell or are they stuffing the devil into hell all their stuff in the devil into hell and I think what is supposed to represent the two sides is you know the double comes in many forms and sometimes as someone that or something that we think is good right you know and that was. That's what that was supposed to represent each age. Angel does represent each guy so you can kind of tell down the hair the hair color you know then the buffs. Just one is is the Michael sweet sweet angel you you know you you you can tell it's always look look also you get tired of proof that he's the lead guitarist. Aw Man it looks like the odds. One has hair blown out though straighten. Let's do a quick track by track breakdown of to hell with the devil but before we delve into that my pearly whites are looking great on dynamite. Awa Dynamite every single Wednesday night on TNT network. Thanks to quip and something else that goes wherever I do. I think I might have the most well. Traveled quipped toothbrush in the world has been with me everywhere. Japan Saudi Arabia Australia Canada. All across the states. I love my quip quipped toothbrush. I love the fact that quip sends me a new brush. A new brush head every three months they show up in the mail. I just switched out. Dunn's Oh my teeth are happy. My dentist is happy. Happy my wife is happy and my life just got a little bit easier. Quip also comes with a cool cover that works as a case and a stand. I throw my bag and take off and it runs with me for about the three months on a single charge enough to lug around bulky chart charge you WANNA travel nothing like that and my clip as a built in two minute timer that balsas every thirty seconds so that I know it's time to switch sides which cleaned by whole mouth evenly and here's the best part which I.

"Nine. Let's talk the boat. You know you mentioned all your soul stuff. Let's talk about the idea. Sides Your Solo record ten was also talk about your most famous record. I just had the thirty third anniversary. which is the perfect time to talk about a record? Most people want to talk about on the thirty th anniversary or the thirty fifth anniversary but we do things differently so the thirty thirty three of to hell with the devil I mean. Is it amazing to you that it's been that long since that record came out. Yeah it's it's mind blowing actually tells me how precious time is how fast time passes so to really take advantage of every moment savour every moment home it but yeah. That album is an album that we had no idea it was gonna be special. We had no idea that it was going to be the benchmark an in the album that took striper over the cop in our pinnacle album. But it isn't it was Making it it. It was just another album you know. We had a producer co producer by the name of Stephan Gal fast. Who told us that he produced missing you? John Wait to get the GIG and we wound up finding out later that that wasn't true and thank God that didn't hurt. The process still wound up being an amazing album. Why did he why did he just take that song of all songs delight? I I don't know man. It was really weird. We were talking to a number of producers but an art Edwards was another one. We were talking to. That would have been interesting right power station all our station. I mean we would have probably had a little bit more of a groove based album. It was taken on a different vibe. In oddly enough we wound up hiring a bass player. He's a bass player so he probably would have played bass on the album too. But you know I. It wound up to how the devil wound up still surviving driving everything that was thrown at it. You know And we wound up turning in our our certainly our most popular in biggest selling album to date is it. Is it my best album my favourite album. No but I like it. I think it's great album. But it's not my favorite soldiers. I'm going to give that that awards soldiers because there's something special about soldiers all around. You know the writing process the recording process this the energy of the excitement of it the stress of it everything about that era makes it my number one but two hells a close second for sure you had to felt the kind of buzz in the air because you're talking about a striper experience and Maria saw you on this shows that was like sixty minutes in Canada. It's called W five and they did a big piece about striper and it was all based around kind of the Yellow and black attack era which was very close goes to win. Soldiers came out but there was a kind of a real buzz about you guys that point in time. So what the hell with the devil came out you know it was. It seemed like the coronation of striper. I mean did. Did you get that vibe from the record company at all or did you. Was it just business as usual like you said. Don't know we've got totally got that vibe now. I don't know if they would ever admit that but There was I mean it. Just the basic Back Story I mean the label. Once we turn in the Christian lyrics in we got to read the lyrics in front of their own is they realize allies. Will you know. These guys are hard core Christian ban. They actually considered dropping us. This is a `nigma records. Yeah this was a `Nigma they consider dropping while they had second can thoughts about like. Gosh what are we going to do with this. Although although that's always kind of a head scratcher to me 'cause here we are they're coming to see US beforehand before they signed his hearing. Jesus is the way they don't know where Christian man say. Okay really are you deaf you know but but that's the story and that's what they actually have gone on record as say and That being said I think there was a sense of. They didn't know what to do with that. They didn't know how to sell us. How to market us and they they were learning? It was a learning curve and as we went along the first came out it was very successful. They the smiles got bigger and like okay. Yeah you know. And then we did soldiers and it was very successful and then they started feeling more comfortable like okay now. We know what to do with this and they did. They were brilliant brilliant. They did some incredible things then by the time to hell with the devil came out. So that's when they were in full glory of doing different colored vinyl and picture diskin iskin really marketing ban properly and they knew how to market the ban in the secret to it was it and try to market a strictly Christian or they didn't try to market is strictly mainstream. They did both which was very smart in exactly how it needs to be done. Now to this day I can't get labels to market market my solo stuff to Christian market really. Yeah it's crazy. They don't know what to do with it or how to do it. In the fact of the matter is as we have a Christian base out there people that may only by our albums in a Christian bookstore. You know what I mean after Research John. So that's the difficult part is to make people understand that especially in this day and age. Yeah I mean we're we're a one of a kind pant and a lot of people don't know what to do with us and and that goes for the light side of things too you know. We're not typical ban. So you have to think. Think outside of the box in really be creative and that's why a lot of times we don't get some of these big tours. Our names aim was put in the hat for a priest tour maiden tour and sometimes we're skimmed over because they just assume automatically. Oh it's that Christian Band Nad. I won't work and the the sad part is is it would work. And I'll I'll I'll be Mr Eagle here and say that it will work better than any other band because we're a perfect fit for traced traced to open a presale perfect fit and it just were never given the opportunity because of the Christian tack South. Well you'd also would be a perfect fit for you. Know the DEF Leppard Motley crue poison to her. I mean it's the right time frame. It's the right sound. It's the right age group of fans I know. Dude I know and you know a tour like that obviously crew Def leppard poison you you you can figure it out. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure it out that they're really looking hard at at the tick at the ticket who's going to bring people Orlando to the chairs right right. And that's that's a big deal I believe it's been rumored it's alive nation thing so even more so So you know you would think think well striper you know striper isn't selling out arenas and you know they're not doing this and they're not doing that but at the same time. We do have a really strong strong fan base. That's been consistent for thirty six years. And here's the cool thing about it in. There's something to be said for this even more so than the the dollar sign and that is the the integrity and the controversial side and making people go watch. I would never never have expected that. How cool is I see this instead of putting rat on the tour? Nothing against Rad I love him or archly. Putting another typical ban that that everyone the backed striper would be the one that nobody would expect. And I think it would make things things much more interesting and I even tweeted something I think last night like we'd be a great force band and we would be but you know it. Will we ever get that opportunity. Who knows we'll see when once again we're talking about when I was being recorded and you back then obviously there was no internet? It was all about metal edge magazine and Circus Focus magazine. That's where you get your get your information about the records that were coming out and there was a picture that was released striper. Ano- tim is in the band anymore. But the Ferris pictures from that session were with another bass player and yeah yeah that was always a little confusing when the record came out Tim was back in the the band. But also to the record. A guy called Brad Cobb plays Bass hotels for the situation around that time frame. Yeah it was a little confusing using it. I'll certainly take some of the credit for that. I won't take it all It put gets put on me often that I'm the guy that didn't allow tim to play on that album I'm the guy that did this guy did that. And the fact that matters is that's just not true We as a band decided Oz. Robert Myself Equally And in also obviously you know the producer that it would be best to bring a different Bass player because in the reason. Why is you know we had to Qatar tracks recorded? We have the drums recorded and everything was gluing together. And then we started tracking base and all of a sudden was not going together as much. It wasn't a solid as we were hoping it would be. It wasn't taking keen on that sound that we're looking for so we all knew that the only way to resolve that was bringing a different player so we started auditioning different players. We actually auditioned Ricky Phillips Place for sticks and he was in the Babies Jason. He's a great player and we. We auditioned a number of players. And then we wound up by dishing. This Guy Brad Kopp who was a local guy who blew our minds is because he just locked in engaged to hell with the devil that glue literally glued everything together in May just just chest lock in groove in. We all went the minute. We heard him play. Were all everyone in. The room is now for live. We needed someone else. Because Brad didn't have that. Look you know Brad had real short hair. And he didn't have a look you're going for so we were looking at a guy in a band called leather wool by name Matt couric who we thought would be perfect. Because he had a little bit of that Steve Harris made vibe and had a good look and everything and and we wound up bringing him in. He actually ward the outfit made for Tim had to be tailored. Yeah 'cause he was much shorter and It wound up being situation where we resolve things with him. Because things didn't feel right because tim was in our band for a few years prior to that we were friends and brothers and whatnot and it just felt weird continuing on without him so we wound up bringing him back asking him back. But you know the funny thing. It's not a lot of people know that that Jim's been in and out of the band you know step that was this. Last time was the The fourth time I believe right right at third or fourth time but You know so. It's it's one of those things where it's always been one of those situations where it was unsettled. You know at least it felt that way but matt came in and then it didn't feel right and then coming back. And then we WANNA touring Tim and continuing on. So that's it's the back story to that. So Matt never played a show and never recorded the vocal. He was just there for one photo. Shoot it he was there for one photo shoot. Maybe even one picture and he wound up only playing At Rehearsals Joe which is which is kind of sad. I mean I I mean for him because you know I I. I don't know where Matt is or what he's doing right now. And he's a great bass player. You know really good. Claire and leather was one of those bands that were fairly good but there was just so many bands on the scene that you had to be more than just just good to to get some steam back then. Absolutely she mentioned stripers costumes. And the band had some great ones very loud Out Yellow and black and the very very fashionable for the time. I WanNa talk about that but before we do I gotta give it up for health thanks. They're awesome cry freeze pain in relief role on. I'm feeling good after every single awa matches interesting because last night on Aws jungle boy pin me with a hurricane. Reiner kind of The pulled muscle my leg somehow came home and there was a brand new box of ALMAC. Kreil freeze waiting for me and I put it on and feeling better already I I just roll it on and roll out the pain in my elbow upper arms and my legs.

"And do do a couple of short ground runs. Select city key city dates Put together a phenomenal ban. And that makes people that blows mines where people say that. That's the best band that thing I've ever heard live. You know or at least try to and Go out and just kill it. In play the solo songs focused on solo songs and then also plays sweet lynch songs because tour was Michael. Sweet and George George Lynch most likely. It's never gonNA happen. Never say never they say but you know I tried and I tried and tried to put together something with George and they're always seemed to be some reason why we couldn't do it. No I need to rehearse this long. Their own on dates on here no no. I even tried to organize like Lynch mob opening for striper. Eighty per in in in you know going out and make it happen that way and it still didn't happen so It would be a great opportunity to go out and play some of these songs and that's going going to happen for sure. Absolutely yeah I think there would be a good market there especially like you said if you put together kind of some sort of a supergroup shall we say of great players and he played. There's so many good ones as I'm sure you could have a lot of guys that would come out and win and want to do around with you. So I think the reality for it for sure isn't a coliseum run no but arena run run for sure two and three nights in arenas Yes I I remember when I was living in Knoxville in ninety four And you'RE GONNA YOU'RE GONNA run and that's when I think you're supposed to play kind of like some kind of a church community center. Something those all excited to go because there was nothing to do in Knoxville spill and it got cancelled and extra extra bummed because you had Dennis Cameron of Anjelica on Guitar. Yeah that was a killer ban a and it was it was a dentist. Cameron Angelica on Guitar. I had Scott Harp on base. used to play for White Cross up. Paul Hughes been on keyboards vocals. Who was really well known but the guy saying like a female Robert Plant so he had this really high unusual killer? The voice great player great guy and then on drums. I had a guy named Jamie Wall and who now plays for tears for fears. Wow and Jamie's amy's great. He's he's sick man he's he's great finessing player. It was a fantastic band in We went out. How did some shows in man? It was so special really a good time. Do you remember that some shows got canceled like remember the Knoxville One gut Catholic publisher. He don't but I do. I do you remember. In the thing is with Michael Sweet striper or Solo. There's always gonNA be shows a cancel because I'm one of those guys that always seems to get sick my now when I'm not doing I never get sick. But when I'm touring the minute I hear oh I'm sick from someone someone I know. I'm screw all right and then literally a week later. I'm I'm sick. This happened in Australia just just recently. We sat down on a plane got on the plane. I'm feeling good. I'm like yeah. Let's do this. We sit down and we get in the air and this guy next to Lisa. Start Sneezing and coughing sneezing coughing and he did that for fourteen hours and I said that Lisa probably fourteen times all my gosh. Oh my gosh. I'm going to get sick. Well guess what I got sick and I I had to get through. Those acoustic shows sick man. But I did it somehow. And that's what happens to me every tour. You need to get one of those things that the Japanese people were one of those little doctors. There's masks you just wear that when you're on the plane at least a had one but I didn't I didn't I didn't know it but she had one and I'm like Oh my my. Gosh you're kidding me. I would put it on because this guy was sick as a dog. So besides your troubles in the air and your new Solo album ten ten we also want to talk about stripers most popular record the legendary to hell with the devil.

"A method for something different to do it to challenge yourself as a musician as well I do. I do it to challenge myself as a musician. I do as a challenge myself as a person I like to work. I think people that see me and people that know me know that you know Somewhat of a workaholic and I try to balance that because obviously that can overshadow priorities in your life like your family right like God church and things that should should take precedence in NBA priority. A try to balance that and not work so much that I put those things aside but at the same time. I'm not one of those guys that it consists still. I'm not a guy that can have a day off and say. Hey Okay I'm gonna just sit on the couch potato chips that's not me. I like to be out playing all the time. It's amazing to me too and playing and composing. Because if you look at your body work over the last let's say five years is probably almost ten albums that have been released east. Of course the newest solo record is ten meaning Ten solo records which is pretty crazy on. Its own but it's a cool idea that you had of kind of incorporating operating a different guitar player to come in and do Guitar Solos which is even more interesting. Because you're a great lead guitar player and I know a lot of times you I feel like you don't get the credit for being a great guitar player in Striper so on your own solo album. You bringing other guitar players. I do man and you know people scratch their heads on that one and anything what. You've been talking so long about the fact that you play guitar. You want to be known as guitar player in do so. Why don't you play guitars? And you're so I'll tell you why because because I also wrestle with the fact that when I do play guitar it's a instantly identifiable striper. You know because I have a very unique tone. I have a very unique style a plane and when I look at the more guitar I play in the more Solos. I write the more more than I played on a solo album. The more you're gonNA think it sounds like a striped problem and I already have that problem. Not that it's a problem but people already think better. Pardon me son of man. Oh yeah that sounds like a striper song. That could have been on strike for album. They could've but I really try my best to make it less striper sounding and tried to keep it separate from that But you know it's really impossible. Once I started saying you know once I ride the song is GonNa is going to have those flavors and take on that that sound in that style. I've been playing guitar since I was five. You know may it's my first instrument limit. I'm GonNa Guitar Player before Him. Singer singing it and come till I was twelve. Thirteen years old. You know I it professionally speaking. So I've been playing Guitar Guitar much longer and I think I I don't get recognized guitar player because you know Oz is usually the face of the guitar player. I mean he's he's the guy that the people think guitarist for striper when they start breaking down uh Fox. He's the player even. If I'm playing guitar in the video and playing the solo on the video a lot of people don't know I play I have someone at every single show. I kid you not. That's every show come up to me afterwards and say you know the thing thing I learned is that you play guitar and just sit there and smile and shake my head and think. Wow that is so weird. Well I think if it goes by the typical lineup of a rock and roll bands kiss. Paul Stanley's The singer and Rhythm Guitar you know. The Beatles John Lennon was a singer and Rhythm Guitar. Everybody that's the singer is a rhythm guy. you know sure Dave mistaken probably went to that of it too and megadeath starter that you're kind of splitting the leads and a lot of ways you're playing is more recognizable than ause. Just because you're behind the MIC. They just a lot of people aren't in the in the in the musicians bubble that we are where we know every single player and every single guy you know what I yeah most people just watch and kind of say okay. He's a singer so he must not be doing those solos as well. Not totally totally an and I understand that I just read something about Dave Mustang. Being a great rhythm guitar player you know he was on a list of greatest rhythm guitar players or whatnot and I just thought wow he's a lead player and that's okay okay. It doesn't matter in the grand scheme of things no but at the same time someone like myself who I really work hard on on Solos. Qatar part is probably more so than vocals and then to have people think you don't play or or not know that you do play. It's a little frustrating sometimes. uh-huh I've learned to kind of let it go over the years because at the end of the day it really doesn't matter the man I. I love playing guitar. I always joke about someday when I can't hit any of the notes it's in that day may come. I'll hire some young stud and I'll go. I'll go out and just play guitar and then people may be will know that I play guitar. Wreckage recommend right but going back to its end. How did you decide on which guests you're going to ask to play because it's a great collection of amazing Tara Saen here while I was writing songs Rong's each song each day? I was thinking about each guitar player and You know a song laid down for example very priestfield. In for some reason I ahead Marzi Mazari in mind for that and I just felt like he's the perfect guy for this is I was riding stunt man. I knew that Andy James was the guy for that because I wanted to kind of step up and go to a little bit of more of a euro medal and I knew Andy was the guy to take it there So I had those guys in mind now. There was there a few that I didn't like better part of me. I had someone else in mind. Even have Jeff loomis on the books and Jeff reached out to me and said he was. He was a stripe. Fan had seen this a few times when he would be honored to be a part of my album and I thought that was amazing. And you know that Jeff Louis Arch enemy wants to play my album. And that was such an honor to me and then the minute that he reached out to be. I knew that was the song for him. It just it all fell into place. The hardest part. Wasn't you know placing guitar players with songs. The hardest part was collecting the detracts at at the end of the day so once we began mixing. I didn't have all the tracks. There was one track that I was. I was waiting on until the day of mixing. And that was that was a little nerve racking. I was literally ready and prepared to play play the Solo on that song. Still yourself right yeah. I would have no other choice but thank God I got the track and thank God everything lined up. Everything worked out and sometimes that can be a disaster in CA catastrophe if you have different players on every song long and you're doing this you're Sydney tracks in. And they're being mailed in I mean that's that's difficult even just from a ever. We've had guests performers on our records. You have to get permission from each record company and even that can take such a long time to to do that process. It really can man and you know the legalities galaxies in in all this stuff that's involved it can be a tiresome and I can actually bring things to Halton where you have to change the plan that that being said. I didn't have to on this and thank God. It all worked out and I love how every guy every guest guitar players Ambuhl Klis really really brought something special to that song and the album. It helped to take it to a new level. And that's what I love about it. It's it's really incredible so it's the mentioned as you're writing these songs. You had the different guys in mind. Are these all favorites of yours. There's like for example. You talking with a guy like Tracy. Guns kind of unrated as a player underrated as a player air bridge ward. Well or those guys that you just knew okay. I got to write something for these guys or this Seoul was going to fit the song perfectly. I knew that the Solo Solo GonNa fit the song like those guys as well. Tracy I knew was perfect for that song ricochet because it has a little bit of a throwback seventies thing and I don't WanNa say Blues lose a little bit more straight ahead and I knew he'd be perfect and enrich ward for the song ten Tim Little Darker More Eerie. I knew he'd be perfect for that. Brought in rich. Rich is one of those guys. And I'm just saying this with you on the phone but richest one of those guys. That is probably the most underrated guy on the album. That's my opinion and yet at the same time delivered the most a really took that song to a whole well different place and when I heard it you should see me in the control room. You know I was grinning ear to ear. You know and I just I just felt like me that engineer myself Danny and I were looking at each other like this is awesome all man you know we were high five in it all around enrich really delivered delivered on that so it was so cool and that it to do it like this and how these guests players and you were guest son as well you know it really when you hear those tracks getting back listened to him and you go yes in. It's what you envisioned or even. Not what you envisioned. It's so exciting because it takes it to a whole different place. I love that well once again. I mean you mentioned Jeff. loomis Konia to do this. Richard Super Super excited that you asked him but you do have a lot of influence for doing this for thirty five years at the highest of levels. I know you're a very humble guy and probably don't see that but I think a lot of people are going out of their way to try and impress you because it's a big honor for them to be on your record who man you know what. It's it's an honor for me to have them on my record and I said this in a recent interview. I'll say it again. It really does feel like The Dad in these are my kids and I'm they're there you standing up to bat and they hit a home run and I'm proud dad jumping up and down in the stands running on the field. MINIMA hug that's how it feels to me and you know the people think anything other than me being humble I really Work hard being humble and and reminding myself that I'm I'm nobody. I'm just a guy that farts and bleeds. Everybody else you know and I am just a a regular shmoe And the people that think that I'm not humbled. I'm an EGO maniac. I think that comes down to you know. I'm very opinionated. And I'm very voice that you know I'm open honest in I give my opinion and you know I'm always giving you my side in interviews and whatnot at I. Think people you Mistake that as ego in sometimes in a but if they were to have a cup of coffee and breakfast with me they might walk away same. Hey man was I wrong. You know 'cause I am. I am a fairly humble dude and you know I want everyone else to have the spotlight not me you know I love. I love bringing these guys into my albums and bringing Mariah for Mika on my album and Tony Harwell and all these guys you know so the spotlight like can be on them so that people can say. Oh Gosh I remember him are Oh man. I've never heard of her You know I love that you know talking about that. And then all of the records that you have I mean like you mentioned having ten solo records. Do you have imagined it kind of in passing. Do you have any. I'm sure it's the million dollar question of taking aching. You know this lineup out to play some of these songs I mean one sided. War was amazing to had so many great songs on it and going back all the way to the first Michael Sweet Solo record and real. I mean there's so much material a have you ever thought about doing that and be. Is there a market to support it now when you say doing it. That's the part I missed. You mean doing like a a tour Michael Sweet Solo tour. Oh Yeah Yeah Yeah for sure man I mean I. I don't know what kind of market there is supported but I think there is a market. You support I only see that just based on my Solo Acoustic But that being said I would assume that there'd be a much bigger larger market for the full electric band solo show now now. I haven't done that since two thousand so you're talking about almost twenty years right and my vision is to go out and do it.
"michael sweet" Discussed on Talk Is Jericho
"Check him out now. So talking with Michael sweet returning to talk is Jericho always got so much stuff going on but Interestingly enough you just came back from your soul tour of Australia and You said you're still embedded jetlagged. I'M JET LAGGING I. It's it's always the case coming back from Australia Japan or anywhere on that inside the world glow in Yeah I don't know what it is man it go in. There is not too bad coming back. You know you go to bed at two in the morning you you sleep till two in the afternoon. At least I do right. And you guys have been doing a lot of those tours of the last few years with went to Korea the and there's always Japan tours and whether it's a striper with yourself you have pretty good following over in that part of the world you know what we do believe it or not and You know when we go to Korea. We'd play we did a A festival over there big stadium. We you know it wasn't is in a pack stadium but it was. It was a good crowd and Japan. We're two hundred fifteen hundred. Fourteen fifteen hundred seat venues over there. Japan was the first place we went to internationally and we literally went there right on the heels of soldiers command album and didn't even finish mixing the album and flew right to Japan and performed. And that's when we recorded a live in Japan so we've always had a really good following their Surprisingly enough I mean back in the day we used to think about well. How is that possible because here we are a Christian Band and Japan is is made up primarily of Non Christians right So you think okay. Okay how does that work. That's for any country that we we visit and we see great turnouts and I think it comes down to the music. People like to music people are moved by the music and Regardless of the message and I think he can reverse that coin to AH mainstream bands. You know van like slayer or any other Bam for that matter you know they sing about this. But the devil or or drugs whatever it is and and people just they like the music. I think too like especially going to Japan as many times as we've both gone the do have a fascination for for American music. I think the fact that the that you are being kind of such an hourly Christian Band even though they might not be Christians as religion religion. I think they think it's cool that you're doing it because it's something different that no other band you know especially in that part of world has no Buddhist heavy metal bands Or whatever you might say right right and that's a yeah true and I think you're absolutely right. I do think that Japanese especially the very disciplined people and they're very you know. I think they admire people who are disappointed. We are striper. Striper is disciplined band not only in terms of music and trying to stay in shape. And this and that. But I mean our our message you know wherever we don't waver from that and we have a lot of integrity and or at least yes we tried to to have an and stay on track and you were here to do and I think that they admire that yes absolutely quick note about Striper striper live in Japan. Once again is the comes along form. VHS You guys released interview at the end and you have the acronym for Striper Salvation Redemption Piece Encouragement and righteousness. That's a roberts those arms. Okay yeah anything like that. You GotTa give credit to Robert Because he came up with. He was the mastermind behind all that stuff. The you know the name the the acronym the the Yellow and black and that was his thing. Music was my thing and all that other stuff was rob's thing but man and I'll never forget when we had to those videos. We didn't know anything about it. It has they're filming and and we're doing the video. They hand US each a Mike and say we interview interview you now message to Japan fence and we're like why what do you mean. Yeah just say some people go read lifespan. And we all said Said what we said in people. Who are you with me? On this some diehard fans but it was the cheesiest corneas silliest thing ever everything that we said at least in my opinion I can't watch it. I I mean I I cannot watch I think Timmy says like rock and roll it. It's just like you know I watched some of my earlier interviews and resting and I remember I didn't want to ninety one in Winnipeg Take Manitoba and for some undetermined reason. I decided that having Elvis Memphis accent and Elvis tone really want to thank like all the fans and really love you know what the Hell I think a Crowley loved it right like you said watching it back now is cringe-worthy but for the hardcore fans interviewed. It was amazing amazingly bad dude. I can't I can't watch that video especially the when You know twenty years ago twenty five years ago when my kids Rian lays always WANNA watch that video and they would always want to watch it when we had guests westover so there's five six seven eight people their house and honest to God. Whenever that would happen I would leave? I'd go get in the car and go to the market market and and get out of there because I couldn't watch it. That's how bad it was not just those interviews but the SPANDEX pants. I mean we're probably as as tight as they could have been and then they they use zoom. You know even more so and I'm like God and I was is I had to get out totally quite the quite the spectacle you're you're letting him letting everything Lord but let's talk about the reason why you went to Australia. Trey ages quickly. Because I find it very cool that you did an acoustic tour and watching it on some instagram posts and stuff. It's just you on stage age with an acoustic guitar using maybe some loops or a little bit of a drum machine backup but how is that playing completely on your own not behind behind a wall of guitars and kind of screaming distorted vocals. which is you know if you're nailing? It still sounds close but when this acoustic is just you and could target. There's nowhere to hide basically. Yeah no there's not and it's very it's terrifying. I mean especially if you're not at one hundred percent Nina if you're at one hundred percent terrifying if you're at ninety percent it's a complete horror show right you know if you're at fifty percent you don't I don't I don't want to go on and it's like it happens a lot in and that's why I say to myself. Why do I do this? What do I put myself through? This punishment is torture her and what I mean by that. Is I love doing it. But I don't like the part about nowhere to hide 'em feeling under the weather and it's you know my nerves kin again. That's the stuff I don't like and you know it. It's one of those things as the same time. There's something to be said for it. The bareness of it you you know the it's really special. You know you go out there with guitar. And I played these songs and really their original state. I mean most of these songs in that a lot of people people know this but most of these songs. Even the metal tracks were written on an Acoustic Guitar. That's where they start is just me being too lazy to set up my rig. I grabbed Muktar off the walls start strumming in. I write a song. And then later I plug in and It's Kinda cooled. Hear him in that form in in up so far everybody that comes to these. Acoustic shows really seems to like it. You know. It's a stripped down version. But it's a much more intimate personable lable version. It almost feels like all these people coming into my living room. And we're just hanging out and I'm saying you know maybe Grandma Guitar Man. Let's let's let's play a few assange hair. And it's like that Gotcha and the thing is too because you get a chance to play some of the songs you know. Obviously there's a real heavy striper contingent but you get to do some of the sweet lynch stuff and some of your solo stuff very cool tunes Boston which I think is a forgotten part of your career and a lot of ways that that must be one of the reasons why you do this as well to have some diversity absolutely absolutely I want to take it a step. Further at some point put together a full band and go out and do a bunch of songs that I've never played before but I mean this is an opportunity for me to kind of touch on everything it's crazy. 'cause sometimes I'll say and I had the opportunity to Boston and it almost almost feels like in the room like nobody knew that right in a way was such a bleep on the radar that now a lot of people know that and sweetland some people people know some people. Don't you know some of the Solo albums. Some people never even heard of them. It's it's crazy to me and yet they're fans they're they're just see me. You would think that they know everything about me right. But they don't always think is the hardcore Michael Sweet fans that know that you have ten soldiers but you know I love doing it i. It's there's something really special unique about it. I do face things from from time to time that are unbearable. I I'll never forget. I went over to South America in my first. Show there Kucic Solo. Same same deal and The promoter comes back station he says Yo wanted to let you know very notch Alawi. I wanted to let you know that Jeff Tate is here there and I said why would Jeff Tapie here. What he's talking about and he says yes? Let me show you and he takes me in the side of the curtain in right right in front of my microphone at my feet is Geoff Tate in his wife drinking wine and I just thought Oh. Oh my God I gotta go out and seeing Cousteau Klay to wanting agrees voices in metal ever for an hour and a half and try not to sweat you know and I did and you know he was great. He was seeing the words to the songs and it is awesome. But I mean facing things like that acoustically it puts on that extra bit of pressure. Because you have like you said earlier you have nothing to hide behind it. All know allow damps no band and just you and your voice that's it. It's really kind of a true true artistry. Let's see how good you really are because once again the song that so you're singing to those melodies ain't no joke as we say very high high melodies and stuff and like you said you gotta single clean without kind of the balls and the Grit Grit in your voice so it won't really fit the Kucic arrangement right the F.. Shore man it's it's a whole different animal. It really is in in our rely on Robert Birtwistle much for you know the groove and his Phil's coming out of Phil and nowhere land and the is dual harmonies and vocals in in the groove. The Bass player comparing his vocals. And we don't have any of that stuff you thinking about it like I'm thinking about it through the whole set like Dang which I had is right now. Oh shoot. That could use Perry right there. I even joke about it on stage throughout the Sabah again. There's something really cool about it and the only way to understand and experience what I'm saying it just come out and see a show. You gotta come to show some time and you say okay I get it you know. It's it's really cool. Let's talk about why you do. The Solo Acoustic shows Michael. And whether you're thinking about doing a solo tour with full electric band got enough material. That's for sure but before we do that..
