Dee: Twisted Sister Drummer Died From Heart Attack

A.J. Pero

Dee Snider, the lead singer of Twisted Sister, claims the band’s drummer died from a “massive heart attack.” As someone with slight heart issues, that shit scares me shitless. A.J. Pero, who was also the drummer for Adrenaline Mob, died last week suddenly. He was 55. Dee revealed the news on Twitter, saying that Pero […]

Vince Neil Signs On For “Celebrity Apprentice?”

Vince Neil

It seems that way, folks. This here story claims that Mötley Crüe’s Vince Neil “has been telling friends” in Las Vegas that he will be appearing on the next season of NBC’s “The Celebrity Apprentice.” If true, it’d be Vince’s fifth stint as a reality TV star. He was on the “Surreal Life” a while […]

Dee Snider Selling Dope Car

Let me have it, Dee

Wouldn’t you just love to drive a car that was probably gifted to Twisted Sister frontman and former radio morning show host Dee Snider? No? Fine then. Don’t go here to bid on Dee’s purple Dodge Challenger. It’s a customized, 2010 version of the car, which my friend Tony had for a while; they’re choice, […]

Ted Nugent Fires Back At Dee Snider

Ted Nugent

The other day, Dee Snider called Ted Nugent out as a draft dodger, and so, in the interest of fairness, we are absolutely obliged to bring you Ted’s retort.

Dee Snider Claims Ted Nugent’s A “Draft Dodger”

Ted Nugent

Ted Nugent may be an ignorant asshole more annoying than a gaping, weeping genital wound, but a draft dodger? I can’t say for sure. But Twisted Sister’s Dee Snider says he is in a new interview on Noisecreep. “Ted’s always been a gun-toting conservative,” Snider tells the site. “But what gets me is that he […]

Alice Cooper, Dee Snider Set For Horror Cruise

Alice Cooper

I hate this fucking cruise trend, man. They’ll book a cruise around any lame theme. I’m waiting for them to announce a Comic Cruise: a comic convention that floats! Then, the trend will totally have jumped the shark. Alice Cooper and Twisted Sister frontman Dee Snider will be the musical guests on the “Ship Of […]

Suffocation Being Named To Long Island Music Hall Of Fame


It’s not the museum in Cleveland, but its something. I am from Long Island, and great point of pride for me is that a bunch of rad bands have emerged from what’s essentially a glacial sand deposit. Bands like Vision of Disorder, Suffocation, and yes, even Twisted Sister. In October, Suffocation will be inducted into […]

Twisted Sister’s Dee Snider Blasts Paul Ryan Over Song Usage

Dee and his wife

Quick — name Twisted Sister’s most popular song. If you answered “We’re Not Gonna Take It,” you’re wrong. The correct answer is “Burn In Hell.” At least that’s how it should be, anyways. It seems Paul Ryan — in addition to loving Rage Against the Machine — is down with Twisted Sister. So much so […]
