The Sweet performs live on Good Day LA + backstage interview

Legendary rock band The Sweet performed Friday on Good Day LA as part of our Mercury Insurance Concert Series.

The band formed in the U.K. in 1968 and shot to the top of the charts in the 1970s with hit songs like "Ballroom Blitz," "Fox on the Run," and "Blockbuster."

The original lineup featured vocalist Brian Connolly, bassist/vocalist Steve Priest, drummer Mick Tucker and guitarist Frank Torpey, who was later replaced by Mick Stewart and, subsequently, by Andy Scott.

The group disbanded in 1981, but in 2008, Steve Priest assembled his own version of The Sweet in Los Angeles. He enlisted fellow Brit Stuart Smith on guitar, L.A. native Richie Onori on drums and World Classic Rockers alumni Stevie Stewart on drums.
