Gene Simmons of KISS says, "Without the Sweet there would not have been a KISS."
"This is the band I wish I had been in." - Joe Elliot, Def Leppard

By the early 70's The Sweet were arguably the hottest ticket in town with a string
of top ten records in the UK and Europe including Blockbuster, Hellraiser, Ballroom
Blitz, Teenage Rampage and The Sixteens.
In 1975 the USA had discovered the band with Fox on the Run hitting the number 3
spot in the Billboard 100. Another self-penned hit Action followed in 1976 firmly
establishing Sweet in the US charts.

On the face of it they were primarily a singles band, however, with the landmark
albums including Desolation Boulevard (1975) and Give Us a Wink (1976), the band
showed a much harder rocking band. The album Level Headed, released in 1978, brought
with it another award winning million-selling worldwide hit with Love is Like Oxygen
written by Andy Scott.

In 1979, lead singer Brian Connolly left the original line up leaving Andy Scott,
Steve Priest and Mick Tucker to continue as a three-piece. Sadly, both Brian
Connolly and Mick Tucker passed away in 1997 and 2002 respectively, and with Steve
Priest relocating to the USA, Andy Scott was left to fly the flag.

The 2020 line-up features founding member, Andy Scott (lead guitar, vocals), Steve
Mann (guitar, keyboards), Bruce Bisland (drums, vocals) Lee Small (bass, vocals) and
Paul Manzi (lead vocals).

The Sweet still tour the world extensively with one of the most dynamic and slick
live shows on the circuit. 1968 to 2020, 52 years and counting of hellraising, star
chasing, trail blazing. The Sweet continue to walk loud and proud in the rock and
roll universe.
