Weather Alert

Great idea Dee

Back in the early 80’s Twisted Sister gained popularity because MTV played the shit out “I wanna rock” and “Were not gonna take it.” Those two songs/videos made TS a household name.

The band was set to play the Omaha Civic Auditorium on the “Stay Hungry” tour and I really wanted to go. At this point I was a young man and still had to ask my parents to drive out of town. My Mom felt that I’d been to enough shows for awhile and should be taking a break. Taking a break from concerts? WTF Mom? You don’t just “Take a break” you keep going to more. Anyway, I missed the show. At the time I figured I’d have a chance to see them again. NOPE! Never had the chance to see them again. I did get to interview Dee Snider and see his solo band, but never got to see the full original band. Thanks Mom!

In a recent interview Dee Snider said he is 100% sure TS will never reunite. With the loss of original drummer AJ Pero in March of 2015 I believe Dee doesn’t think it’s right to play without all original members. I respect the hell out of that decision. Every time I see Phil Anselmo talk about reuniting Pantera for a few shows I cringe. Leave it alone. You have half the band and the half that’s gone was the most important part of the band. As far as Twisted Sister is concerned, I don’t want to see the band play without all of the original members. I am glad Dee doesn’t see the need to force something that just doesn’t work without the original guys.
