Dee Snider is gearing up for the release of his live album titled “For the Love of Metal Live” on July 31.
In a new interview on Talking Metal, Dee Snider looked back on touring with Metallica Iron Maiden & Motorhead.
“When men were men and tours were tours. That was, for me, the ultimate metal tour. It was right before we had hair metal. Up to that point, it was just metal.
“And you could have Iron Maiden and Twisted Sister on the same stage; you could have Motörhead and Twisted Sister on the same stage, and people said OK.
“We toured with Metallica – they opened for Twisted – and nobody thought, ‘What are those bands doing together?’ It was just metal. We were a weird metal band that wore make-up, they were a metal band that didn’t.
“That was a great tour. It was not an opening situation. The venues were filled from 7 PM. I don’t remember there being an empty seat in the house. People were there. ‘We want to see Iron Maiden and we want to see Twisted Sister.’ It was an event.”
