Steve Priest Interview from Sweet http://musiclegends.ca
Interviewed by Jason Saulnier February 2, 2009


The Sweet was a band that went through many up and downs. Initial success for the Sweet began in 1971, after the band teamed up with songwriters Nicky Chinn and Mike Chapman. However, the Sweet would pen a number of their own hits, with Priest often directly backing up Brian Connolly's vocals and taking distinctive short vocal leads. After Brian Connolly left the Sweet in early 1979, Priest took over the majority of vocal duties for the band. This continued until 1982, when the original Sweet disbanded. By this time, Priest had divorced his first wife, Pat, and moved to New York City. On June 18, 1981, he remarried, this time to his current wife Maureen (née O'Connor), who was then East Coast Director of Publicity and Artist Relations for Capitol/EMI Records in New York.
