Some time in Winter of 1987, Stryper glorified us all by visiting Australia after touring Japan. If you liked the Christian message – that’s great. If you were not fussed and looked past the image and the message – you saw a damn fine rock band with great songs; four gifted musicians with a vocalist who had one of the best voices in rock. Stryper also produced some memorable songs filled with heavy riffs and strong melodies. Hell (whoops) the Rockbrat dug ’em – even saw them live in 1987 and 1989. God’s rock n roll soldiers took time out in 1987 to sign a magazine for me which is displayed here.
