Today is the 33rd anniversary of my favorite Stryper album. Yeah, Stryper, that Christian hard rock band that around this time looked like a “group of girls” as my pops said once. This album was polished and slick. It was commercial and somewhat cheesy, but I wore out a whole cassette, misused the CD and now take good care of the vinyl copy that I have. This was one of my favorite songs on the album and since everyone I looked at doing covers was either out of key or couldn’t really do it justice, I went to the source. Enjoy!
And, I never saw them live, did Robert Sweet always look like he had that much trouble playing drums? He sounds great but he looks so awkward. That, and time wasn’t very kind to him.
Until tomorrow, same blog channel…

I had a cousin into Christian Rock. I remember him playing a lot of Petra, which I thought had some catchy songs. “Beyond Belief” was one of the big ones (I think).
