ROBERT LEE SWEET

Robert Lee Sweet (born March 21, 1960 in Lynwood, California), Height 5'9" - is the drummer of the Christian metal band Stryper. He and his brother Michael originally founded the band as Roxx or Roxx Regime. Robert became known as the "Visual Time Keeper" for his wild drumming and captivating drum kits. Unlike most drummers, Sweet faces in the direction of stage left or right while playing, not straight ahead, so that the audience can see him and not have their view of him obscured by his drumkit. Sweet also played a key role in the visual direction of the band itself as well as being a significant contributor to the group.

After Stryper broke up in 1992, Sweet went on to play in a variety of acts and projects largely Christian-oriented. He participated in the band King James alongside former Stryper bassist Tim Gaines and former Whitecross guitarist Rex Carroll, and toured with them until 1996. He also participated in such projects such Shameless and Titanic. Sweet went on to record a solo album titled Love Trash which demonstrated an eclectic side of his writing and performing capabilities. Later, Sweet joined Blissed and some other bands.

My Comment:
The Songs are not so melodic, but much on heavy guitar riffs. Though, Robert has a nice voice. Good for Stryper fan collector. I shall update this Robert Sweet post from time to time
