TWISTED SISTER's DEE SNIDER: 'Lead Singers By Trade Are Professional A**holes'

In an interview with "The Hairball John Radio Show", TWISTED SISTER frontman Dee Snider spoke about his Halloween-themed classical/rock musical project VAN HELSING'S CURSE, the state of TWISTED SISTER and his highly successful syndicated radio show "House of Hair". Dee also addressed his feelings regarding the music of the Eighties and comments made by Bruce Dickinson of IRON MAIDEN. An excerpt from the chat follows:

Dee Snider: "To be honest, I think a lot of it ('80s music) is nostalgic and enjoyable to hear, but I don't think a lot of it holds up well because it sounds dated. Certain artists don’t, though, IRON MAIDEN for one. I just still enjoy the hell out of them in spite of what Bruce (Dickinson) may have said about me and about TWISTED SISTER regarding us being 'flavor of the month' and that they weren't. But you know what? Bruce is like me; he shoots his mouth off too much, and he is a good guy and lead singers by trade are professional assholes and you can't expect too much out of us."
