For fans of Christian hard rock and metal, Skillet frontman John Cooper needs no introduction. John, along with his wife Korey, form the core of that group, which is these days augmented by guitarist Seth Morrison and drummer Jen Ledger.
What you may not know is that the coronavirus lockdown has given John a chance to work on some other projects, including his popular Cooper Stuff Podcast and a just-released book, Awake and Alive to Truth.
I recently had a chance to talk with John about all things Skillet, including how COVID has impacted his band, his new book and even hearing how one of Plugged In’s reviews prompted John to rethink a lyric on one of Skillet’s songs.
We’ve talked with John before, and he’s always a gracious, funny and challenging voice to hear from. I think you’ll be encouraged by what he has to say—and by his commitment to standing firm on God’s truth in a culture where so many voices urge us to do whatever we feel like instead.
