Michael Sweet Speaks Up on Stryper Tuning Down and How It Helped Them Perform Live

In a recent Youtube interview with “John The Ninja”, Michael Sweet of Stryper fame spoke about his decision to tune down, his second-guessing of the same decision, and finally finding comfort in the realization that many vocalists were doing the same (via Blabbermouth): “When we dropped the tuning, I started to feel like, ‘Gosh, am I compromising? Am I letting the fans down and letting myself down?’ But then I reached out to Kip Winger [of Winger] and I started going online and researching [other bands who have tuned down to make it easier for their singers, like] Firehouse[‘s] C.J. [Snare], Sammy Hagar — I mean, the list goes on and on and on. You could go on YouTube and find most bands, and almost all bands, at my age, they’ve dropped the tuning down. And it’s the way it works, because it does make it easier on the vocalist.
