As a youngster, Steven Sweet saw a picture of drum kit in a Sears Christmas Wish Book.

He got his first toy kit when he was about 5, and his first real kit when he was 12.

“So I guess you can say I started playing when I was 12,” he said.

His love of the drums paid off, for after years of practice and honing his skills, Sweet was invited to join the band Warrant. The rest, as they say, is rock ‘n’ roll history.

Sweet and his band mates – Eric Turner, Jerry Dixon, Joey Allen and Robert Mason – will perform at the Honeywell Center’s Ford Theater on Saturday, Feb.. 3. They will be joined by Firehouse and special guest Downtread for the show, which begins at 7:30 p.m.
