The Sweet - Voice Your Choice

The Sweet were a rock and roll band from England. You might even describe them as one of the Glam Rock bands of the early '70s. Brian Connolly was the lead singer, who passed away at the young age of 52 of liver cancer in 1997. The other members were Andy Scott on guitar and keyboards, Steve Priest on bass, and Mick Tucker on Drums. Sadly, Tucker also passed away, in 2002 at age 53 of leukemia.

In the seven short years of their career as a group, they appeared on the charts 9 times and scored 2 Gold Records while they reached the Top Ten 5 times. Pretty impressive!

Treasure Island Oldies presents The Sweet on Voice Your Choice. Cast your vote for either Little Willy or Ballroom Blitz at the Voice Your Choice page. I'll play the winning song on next week's show.
