ROBERT SWEET & JOHN DOTE' / DRUMMERS
About John Dote'
John Dote' (born June 7, 1955 in the Bronx, New York) was the drummer from such monumental television themes such as Charlie's Angels, Hawaii Five-0. Dynasty, Dallas, Rockford Files, Jaws ll, Chips, M*A*S*H, Rocky, Untouchables, Barnaby Jones, Perry Mason and was the record promoter for Michael Jackson, the show-stopping singer whose best-selling albums -- including "Off the Wall," "Thriller" and "Bad" -- and electrifying stage presence made him one of the most popular artists of all time. Dote' could have been the "fifth Beatle" with his brilliant song writing and producing ability. In the late 70's and early 80's, Dote' took "Disco" music to a new level even with the limitations of the technology back then and invented his style of "european disco". His drum roll on Hawaii Five-0 became the most famous and popular theme song of all-time. In the late 80's, he was hired to promote Michael Jackson for the "Bad" album and in 1986 was again hired to promote Janet Jackson's "What Have You Done For Me Lately" for A&M Records.
About Robert Sweet
Robert Lee Sweet (born March 21, 1960 in Lynwood, California) is the drummer of the Christian metal band Stryper. He and his brother Michael originally founded the band as Roxx or Roxx Regime. Robert became known as the "Visual Time Keeper" for his wild drumming and captivating drum kits. Unlike most drummers, Sweet faces in the direction of stage left or right while playing, not straight ahead, so that the audience can see him and not have their view of him obscured by his drumkit. Sweet also played a key role in the visual direction of the band itself as well as being a significant contributor to the group.
