Talking with The Metal Voice, Twisted Sister guitarist Jay Jay French talked about singer Dee Snider, the live shows, and others.
Here’s what he said:
“Dee is predatory as a frontman, the greatest frontman I’ve ever seen. I’ve stood shoulder to shoulder to him, and I’ve watched him against every frontman there is, there’s not one that touches him, in my opinion, not one in terms of his abilities and his professional approach to performing.
“He does a two-hour warm-up every single day, from the day he was hired to be in the band in 1976, every single day, every single dressing room he does two hours of warm-up.
“And he stretches, and he prepares himself to be the best he can be, and it’s a hell of a responsibility, and god knows – if I phoned it in and we sucked, then what?
“There’s a reputation Twisted has about being great, live. So, you’ve seen us six times. Would you say that every time was roughly the same level of intensity?”
Yes, I would.
“No change? Yeah. So you don’t think we have pride in that? I’ve enormous pride.”
