La Torre commented on working with Sweet on the track:

“Special thanks to my good friend Michael Sweet for having me be a part of his new album, Ten. It’s no secret that I am an atheist and he is a Christian, and it’s worth noting that this is a wonderful example of how people can do great things together when there is acceptance and respect as human beings first despite differing world views.

It was a GREAT time working with Michael, and can’t forget the spectacular playing from John O’Boyle on bass, Will Hunt on drums, and Andy James shredding the solos! Enjoy.”

La Torre has followed this up with a video message filmed backstage at a recent Stryper show. Continue reading »
