Seems like singer Dee Snider is not at all open on reuniting Twisted Sister.
In a recent interview with the “Metal From The Inside” podcast, Dee was asked if he is still opened for the reunion, replying:
“[I am] one hundred percent committed to not reuniting. Now, let me just be clear: we’re friends. I did a [solo] show a couple of weeks ago [on June 11 at Stereo Garden in Patchogue, New York] and [Twisted Sister bassist Mark] Mendoza showed up, and we did [TS‘s] ‘Under The Blade’, and it was awesome. I talk to the guys all the time. I can show you my text messages. We have a little text group, and we were sending messages back and forth.
“To me, that was the reason to reunite, was to fix the relationships [between the members of the band], and we did fix’ em, and we’re friends,” he explained.
“I feel we did what we could do without just doing the same thing over. And I wanted to do some new, challenging things that I couldn’t do within Twisted. And the solo records I’ve done I could not have done with Twisted Sister.” […]
“I could see us doing a charity — a couple of songs for charity, for the right reasons. We got [back] together originally for charity, which was a good reason to get together. I could see [talk show host Jimmy] Fallon — he’s a big fan — if he said, ‘Hey, guys, can you guys come on ‘[The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon’] and do ‘White Christmas’ for us?’ F*ck yeah. But to do a tour, to do 90 minutes, two hours on a stage, I don’t see that happening.
”And credit to everybody in the band, and I know some people — without naming names — some guys, they would have kept going; others did not wanna keep going. But I’m sure we get offers. Jay Jay French [TS] is the manager of Twisted, ’cause it’s still an entity — there’s still royalties and licenses and things like that, and merchandise — he’s not presented one offer, and I’m sure we’ve gotten ’em. ‘Cause we’re not even considering it. It doesn’t matter what they’re offering; we’re not doing it.”
