DEE SNIDER On TWISTED SISTER's Future: 'I Want It To End While Everything's Right'

October 6, 2006

Bryan Reesman of reports that TWISTED SISTER will put a cap on its reunion with the Oct. 17 release of "A Twisted Christmas" via Razor & Tie. "I think I made the comment that we should do a Christmas record," guitarist Jay Jay French tells Billboard. "And [frontman] Dee [Snider] said, 'You know, 'Come All Ye Faithful' is actually 'We're Not Gonna Take It'. I think I subliminally stole the melody.'"

"So we recorded 'We're Not Gonna Take It' and put 'Come All Ye Faithful' in, and it worked with some changes," he continues. "We added a BLACK SABBATH version of 'Hava Nagilah' at the end of the song. Then we came up with 10 songs and decided to connect them with bands that we really love."

Having regrouped in 2001 after a 14-year hiatus, TWISTED SISTER's ongoing existence is unclear, according to Snider.

"I've told the guys that I'm done [after 2006]," he says. "I've got a lot of things plaguing me. I really resented the older bands that would not know when to get off the f*ckin' stage. I want to get out of the way and let [younger bands] have their chance in the spotlight. Am I saying I'll never do anything ever again? No. But am I serious that I want it to end? Yes. Not because anything's wrong, but because everything's right, so I want it to end while everything's right."
