BostonHerald.com recently conducted an interview with STRYPER singer Michael Sweet about his current stint as a member of BOSTON's touring band. A couple of excerpts from the chat follow.
BostonHerald.com: How did this tour come about?
Sweet: "The rehearsals and ensuing show last August came off so well, afterwards Tom [Scholz; guitar] asked me if I would consider singing with the band were they ever to tour again. But I was floored at how quickly it came together. BOSTON's known for long breaks between projects, so when I got the call six months later I couldn't believe it."
BostonHerald.com: Why the sudden change of heart?
Sweet: "All I can say is that a lot of healing took place at that tribute concert last year. Tom was deeply saddened by losing Brad [Delp], but you could tell he also experienced a great deal of joy getting together with other people and celebrating the music left behind."
BostonHerald.com: Does being part of BOSTON compromise your faith at all? Are you channeling your inner bad boy?
Sweet: "I haven't felt that yet, no. Believe it or not, BOSTON isn't your typical rock scene with groupies, girls and drugs backstage. We've got a vegetarian chef, and lifestyle-wise it's as normal and boring as it gets."
