Since having left W.A.S.P. to its own device, Piper has survived hair bands, grunge and nu-metal. Always true to his vision of a 21st century Animal he has constantly refined the band, looking for the perfect line-up to realise this vision. In Rich Lewis he found a soul mate as well as a vocalist with total feel. Other former W.A.S.P. members may have come and gone, but Rich and Randy have been the core of the band since day one.
