The Sweet The Worlds Most Underated Rock Band


Recommended Posts

They influenced Kiss, Motley Crue, Guns 'n'Roses, Def Leppard in fact they influenced just about everyone in Rock music. Yet sadly  they never achieved worldwide recognition. Their records still sound great today 40+ years since their last hit single. They had 13 top 30 hits in the 70's. When asked to describe themselves they said "We were just 4 guys who wore make up" They were The Sweet.

I was lucky enough to see them as a 3 piece in 1981 all 3 originals Steve, Mick & Andy by this time Brian had left the band. Steve sang most of the lead vocals that night they were brilliant & left everyone in no doubt they were definitely a rock band. Sadly we'vs lost Brian & Mick, but  both Steve & Andy still tour with their own versions of The Sweet now Andy in Europe & the UK. Steve & his band tend to tour America & Canada. There'll never be another influential band like them & as they said "We were 4 guys who wore make up" who just happened to make brilliant rock songs. I'd love to here your thoughts on The Sweet
