Skillet's original members, when they started in the late '90's:
John Cooper -- Vocals, Bass, Keyboards
Trey McClurkin -- Drums
Ken Steorts -- Guitar
Skillet's music is a mixture of hard rock, funk,
punk, fused together with pure energy, and a strong love for the
Lord, all thrown together in the pan! They formed as a group back
in the late '90's, and have produced many popular albums in their
music ministry. Much to the delight of their youthful fans, who
not only get to enjoy fine hard rock music, with interesting sparkles
of funk and punk, but also are encouraged, enlightened, fed with
Christian messages about the Gospel, which point to our Lord Jesus.
John Cooper - about performing: "As soon as
my feet hit the floor, I know, no matter how many people are there,
I'm going to do the best show I can do; the wildest show. I'm
going to rock it."
