Twisted Sister and Guns

It always comes down to Howard Stern.

Some bloggers head out on mid week dates to see lesbian comedy troupes. I play on Howard's other team, and end up staying up reading Dee Snider's 20 Questions on Metal Sludge.

Used to be a big Twisted Sister fan when I was in like 8th grade.

In his interview, Dee tells a great story about his relationship with Alice Cooper.

We actually had a problem with Alice’s people backstage. They tried to stop Mark “The Animal” Mendoza. We had a co-bill, in New York. And they tried to stop Mark from walking up a set of stairs backstage. You can’t walk up these stairs, this is Alice’s floor. To which Mark “The Animal” Mendoza responded, and this is the guy who came to our first re-union rehearsal with a gun. He said, I’m walking up the stairs, you do what you gotta do. (Dee laughing) And the guy looked at Mark, and Mark is big. And he’s gotten bigger. He’s a fucking bounty hunter. And the guy stepped aside and Mark walked up the stairs.

Pretty cool, I know its not much, but its something.

Anyway, if you have a chance, check out his VH1 show too. And read the entire interview, he seems like a real decent person. Certainly sounds like his priorities are in the right place. Oh, and not thats I was ever planning to anyway, but I will never buy anything from Krokus - or listen to Ballroom Blitz again.
