sweetlynchonlytorisecdThere’s been a lot of memes posted lately about how the movie Back to the Future II described things we’d find in 2015 now that we’ve turned that page, but Only to Rise by Sweet & Lynch is almost like taking a trip back in time.  First of all, George Lynch (Lynch Mob , Dokken) and Michael Sweet (Stryper) on the same album?  What?  How? Better yet, why did it take so long?

As I was growing up, George Lynch was one of my favorite guitarists.  Back in Christmas of 1986, I received my first Sony Discman cd player but no cd’s and the first one I listened to was Dokken.  I still remember that like it was yesterday.  In fact, I was only able to borrow that one cd from a buddy, so I listened to is a fair amount that vacation, marveling at the wonders of a cd compared to my cassettes.  Unfortunately, for a host of reasons, I never really did appreciate Stryper when they were at their peak and a bit younger (around the same time), but after getting a chance to review …. and seeing them live, I can say that I am now a fan, so with that in mind, Sweet & Lynch, which also includes past members from bands like Whitesnake, White Lion,  and Megadeth has on paper a lineup with great potential.  Continue reading »

Sweet told Guitar International about Sweet/Lynch: “It was the brainchild of Serafino Perugino at Frontiers Records. He asked me to basically sing on this record and then I suggested producing it. I co-wrote the songs with George. I called Brian Tichy and James Lomenzo to put the band together. It’s an incredible combination of classic ’70s and ’80s. You will hear some flavors of Journey, Bad Company, Dokken, Van Halen and Stryper.” Continue reading »

In a new post on his Facebook page, Sweet writes: “Why did I decide to do Sweet & Lynch?

‘I was approached by Serafino at Frontiers Records to sing and write for what he was referring to as a ‘supergroup’ project (one of the first) that Frontiers would be putting together and releasing. I was, of course, not only intrigued by the idea but also humbled that he would ask me! Jon Levin (Dokken) was suggested as the possible guitarist and I suggested to Serafino getting the man himself, Mr. Scary (George Lynch) involved. Serafino was, of course, excited about the idea. Frontiers has told me how happy they are with my production on the new Stryper albums so I immediately suggested producing as well. Serafino also agreed. I contacted George [as soon as possible] and he quickly agreed to be a part of this exciting project. It was decided that he and I would co-write everything together and that I would produce.
