Stryper vocalist Michael Sweet defended Chris Jericho yesterday against claims of him using vocal tracks during live shows.
Sweet made a post on Instagram saying “You know it’s funny. [Chris] doesn’t have anything to prove as a singer, a wrestler or a person. He’s achieved success and made quite the name for himself. He’s about as active as anyone I know and is also a great guy with a big heart. He’s also my friend… My point? Chris is a very talented individual and a grounded human being. He doesn’t need validation from anyone. He’s made his mark and will continue to do so.”
Sweet also talked about how him and Jericho had their own sing off to Bon Jovi’s “Living On A Prayer”, at Sweet’s wedding in 2010.
Steel Panther drummer Stix Zadinia is the latest to defend Jericho on these claims. Zadinia shared an article from Blabbermouth.net discussing the quote from Michael Sweet and added the comment, “I’m with this. Jericho is a Fucking rock star and one of the coolest motherfuckers in this business.”
As of now, no official sing off has been scheduled between Chris Jericho and Sebastian Bach.
