Following Stryper‘s official announcement that bassist Timothy Gaines is no longer in the band and a replacement will be announced soon, the group’s frontman and leader Michael Sweet has advised that the band has received a “ridiculous amount” of inquiries with respect to the vacant bassist position.

The following message was posted on Stryper frontman Michael Sweet‘s Facebook page earlier today:

“We will be making a statement about a new bassist fairly soon. Stay tuned. We’re getting a ridiculous amount of inquires from many players. We’re also seeing the “But is he a Christian?” comment a lot. Funny thing is, often enough non-Christian’s act more like “Christian’s” in many ways. My point? Being a Christian is very important but not always the number one priority. We just want a great player/singer and someone who is a team player and respectful of our band and history with a good heart and attitude. We won’t compromise who we are and we’ll make the right decision. Don’t worry…”
