Firehouse are one of my favourite bands. Where the hell are they? Did they disband?

They haven't released any new material in some time, but they play fly-in dates year round. I've seen them 5 times in the past 10 years. Always a great show!

Yeah, not since 2000 or so. Not sure what he's been up to in the meantime.

Yeah he was my guess as well.

Anyway I think it's a good choice. Guess we'll see how it goes.

You might be interested in the project that vocalist C.J. Snare did with Chris Green called Rubicon Cross. It came out a few years back and is pretty good.

He's been in the witness protection program. C.J. Snare does not take defections from Firehouse lightly.

Y'know, I'm starting to understand why Michael Sweet sometimes comes across as such a grouch online.

Ever since they announced the new bass player, Stryper's FB has been blowing up with idiots repeatedly asking the same two questions

A. "Is Perry a Christian?"
(...and not for nothin', does that really matter? Even if he isn't, I would imagine that he must at least be cool with their religious leanings, or he wouldn't have gotten the gig, obviously...)

and

B. "Will Stryper play any Firehouse songs at live shows? "
(smacks forehead)

...if I was dealing with that over and over again for 24 hours straight, it would make me cranky too!

Perry Richardson answered the fans' most burning question (sarcasm alert) via Stryper's FB:

Quote :

Hello everyone...just wanted to stop in and say hi, and thank everyone for welcoming me to the family! The band and everyone on their team have made me feel right at home. Love them already!! Iíve been reading many of your posts, and I totally understand your concerns about my background and whether or not Iím a Christian. Iím proud to say that I am, and have been since I was a kid. I even sang in a southern gospel quartet until I was 14! Lol †
Stryper has been a huge influence on me since our first meeting in 1985, and Iím finding it hard to express how honored I am to be a part of family. I hope all of you will give me a chance to prove myself. Iím so excited for the future, and canít wait to get on the road and meet you guys! ~ Perry

(Whew!) What a relief! I was so worried! :cheese:

The fans are definitely shallow...
Even if he (Perry) wasn't a Christian (just a hired gun) do they really think he would be taking over and write the lyrics? Michael Sweet is the songwriter. I guess they would rather have a major A-hole in the band... as long as he is technically a Christian. Laughing

Well,Michael has said in the past that Stryper is not a christian rock band so I dont see why Perry's faith would matter.. remember this.. http://www.blabbermouth.net/news/strypers-michael-sweet-we-are-not-a-christian-rock-band/

In case anyone's interested, the Stryper website just marked a whole bunch of merch down to $7.77 clearance price...

Guess it's the "We Gotta Get Rid of All the Sh** with Tim Gaines' Picture On It" Sale Laughing very hard

"Tim who? Never heard of him. Perry Richardson has always been our bass player. Yup. Move along now, nothing more to see here." (Band walks away, hands in pockets, whistling nonchalantly)
