Dee Snider of Twisted Sister talked about the absence of alcohol and drugs during his whole life and how did this decision affects his quality of life.
Dee told FOX17:
“People say, ‘What do you attribute to that?’ And I say, ‘Believe it or not, healthy lifestyle.’ I never drank, I never did drugs.
Even though my voiceover agent sold me a ‘cigarette-smoking, whiskey drinker,‘ ’cause I’ve got that husky voice. But that’s from screaming my lungs out my whole life.”
Dee responded what did he buy when he became rich:
“The first thing I bought when I struck it rich was a gym. I bought a gym because I was working out and training, even at that point in my life. So I was like the ‘anti-rock star’ as far as the lifestyle went, but it’s benefited me in the long run.
I used to look at my peers, and they were sprinting. And I would go, ‘Guys, you do know life is a marathon, right? I’m not going for 27; I’m going for 87.’ So it’s definitely benefited me in the long run, for sure.”
