Just for interesting perspective. I did the math and found that Michael wrote 84% of the songs on all Stryper albums. It's actually probably slightly higher because I did not eliminate songs that were borrowed from other groups, like Shining Star and Peace of Mind. On the songs that had co-writers, there was mostly only one other writer. There were a few with outside writers, but mostly it was either Robert or Oz. I didn't tally them up, but Robert might have more credits than Oz.
It's like Bob and Petra.

Michael Sweet on the new bass player:

"He’s a great bass player. He’s got a great look, he’s a great singer. He’s well known and comes from a very successful band and everyone will know who he is. I just can’t announce it at this time. The most important thing about him is he’s a great guy. And we really need someone who’s going to be a team player and just be inspirational and go out there with a smile on their face."

Someone from a very succesful band and whom everyone (at least every Styper fan I suppose) will know... It could be Tracy Ferrie. He is from a very succesful band and since he was a part of the band at an earlier state, everyone will know who he is... Just my guess, though.

Sorry. I just noticed Brent posted the Perry Richardson announcement. For some reason, his post didn't show up until I posted the news. Strange.
