According to Sweet bassist Steve Priest, singer Brian Connolly had to quit the legendary glam band because of his serious smoking habit. Priest claims that his nicotine habit caused serious damage to that golden voice. “A lot of the songs were really up there – and he smoked like a chimney. So he used to lose his voice a lot."
Original Sweet guitarist Andy Scott has a new record ready to roll out, featuring interesting takes on songs by originally recorded by other artists, and furthermore, each mixed with elements of classic Sweet songs.
