In 2011, Stryper released an album of cover songs by some of the bands that were a big influence on them, and in our conversation with lead singer Michael Sweet
, he told us that "More Than A Man" was based on one of these tracks. Said Sweet: "you listen to the song 'Lights Out
' by UFO and you compare it to a song that we have called 'More Than A Man,' it's a very similar riff, it's the same riff: da-da-da-da-da-da-dum-dum-a. Same kind of feel. Different melody, different lyric and whatnot. But you can hear the influences of these bands and these songs within the Stryper catalogue."
