He was a member of Alice Cooper’s band at the same time, as Kip Winger.
Both musicians branched out with music careers of their own after their stint with Alice.
Chances are, if you enjoyed Winger’s tunes to any degree, you will probably love Saints and Sinners. They style of music is quite similar.
Saints and Sinners is Roberts’ sophomore effort that was originally released on Geffen Records. This disc was produced by Sir Arthur Payson, who also has discs by RATT and Alice Cooper to his credit. Most of the songs on this disc were written by Roberts and Desmond Child.
With this record he had a couple of modest hits, with the track Twisted and Does Anybody Really Fall In Love Anymore? which was written by Jon Bon Jovi. I like both of those tunes quite a bit, as well as Rebel Heart and Fighter.
The sound on this record is typical early 90’s pop metal, but I am OK with that. I got a lot of play out of this disc back when I owned it on cassette years ago. I tracked down another copy of this one recently.
Fans of 80’s Hair Metal will definitely enjoy this disc. It is out of print, but you can still find copies of this one through Amazon.com and Ebay. Happy Hunting!
