Replacement Singers


Original Singer: Brad Delp

Reason for Departure: Delp took his own life in 2007.

The Replacements: Michael Sweet, Tommy DeCarlo

Following Delp's death, Boston mastermind Tom Scholz recruited two singers – former Stryper frontman Michael Sweet (above middle) and a longtime fan named Tommy DeCarlo (above right). By 2011, Sweet was lured back to Stryper's "yellow and black attack," leaving DeCarlo with the sole honors. —Jeff Royer
