michael sweet openly Christian hard rockers STRITING went to his social networks on Saturday 11 September to ask a question to his tens of thousands of followers: “If SKILLET & STRITING take a walk together? If this post breaks records with comments and shares, then I’ll take that for a yes 😉 Go for it! “
Several other prominent hard rock musicians responded to Soft at a time Instagram and Twitter, with QUEENSRŸCHE leader Todd la torre, who is an atheist, writes: “That would be a definite no.” FOZZY‘s Chris Jericho was more open to the idea, saying, “This would be a great tour for you guys !!!” Old SALIVA singer Josey scott was equally enthusiastic, writing: “YES !!!! I grew up with SKILLET in Memphis (the singer anyway) and he’s always been a very cool cat man! And they fucking STRAIGHT, LEAVE IT BRO !!!! “
Softthe message from arrived a day later SKILLET and STRITING shared the stage at Rock music festival in Hinckley, Minnesota.
In a 2018 interview with the Detroit Free Press, Michael says that STRITING was never fully embraced by the heavy metal and hard rock communities, in large part because of the band’s Christian lyrics. “We have never been accepted by both sides,” he said. “The secular side, the mainstream, they’ve never accepted us to this day. We’re probably that group that everyone is going to go to whenever there is a moment to make fun of. We will be the group used to. Most of the time, now on the Christian side, we’ve never really had the full support of the Christian side because we don’t have a place in their little club.
In various interviews over the years, SKILLET leader John cooper said that he “always had faith in God” and that his mother was a “fanatic of Jesus”. He also said he was ready to put his career on the line to take a stand for Christ.
Last April, Cooper said to “Undaunted.Life: One Man’s Podcast” that it was perfectly acceptable for Christians to play rock music. “I would say that music is not created by the Devil; [it is] created by the Lord, he said. All things were created by God. So instead of thinking that the Devil owns some kind of music, I would say capture that music and submit it again to the Lordship of Christ. “
Cooper recently published his first book, titled “Awake & Alive To Truth”. It “attacks the reigning philosophies of our age of postmodernism, relativism and the popular view of the goodness of man – and combats these views based on the absolute truth of the Word of God. “, we read in the description of the book.
It would be a categorical no.
