Former Pop Evil lead guitarist Anthony Greve to be VIP Ink Publishing’s newest author

VIP Ink Publishing has signed Anthony 12180556_10208213404558028_1061507158_oGreve, best known as the former lead guitarist for Pop Evil.

Since growing up in Whitehall, Michigan, Anthony Greve wanted to achieve success in the music industry. He started his career as a member of local bands Bidtter Ecstasy and Two Heded Chan, and then gained fame as the lead guitarist for Pop Evil. Songs the band released, like “Hero” and “Monster You Made” received both commercial and critical acclaim, and Pop Evil became more popular, touring with other groups like Rev Theory, Three Doors Down, Judas Priest and Saliva.

At the same time, Greve encountered demons. In one of the bands songs, he described his battle to “Erase this monster I’ve become. Forgive me for all the damage done.” He tried to escape his problems by drowning them out with alcohol, drugs, girls and partying, but this just augmented the pain. Greve had come face to face with the Prince of Darkness, but in the midst of this, he found life.

Greve turned to God, and Jesus Christ transformed his life. He left Pop Evil, along with his old ways, and attended North Point Bible College. From there, God called him to become a traveling evangelist, and he used his salvation story to bring the Gospel Message to others. His purpose in life is no longer to be a famous musician, but to be a witness for Jesus Christ.
