Dee Snider (ex-Twisted Sister) on The MetalSucks Podcast #397
The legendary Dee Snider, formerly of Twisted Sister, returns to the podcast this week! We discuss his new solo album, Leave a Scar, writing and recording it with Jamey Jasta and his team, if he feels the “sophomore effort” label applies to this record given his history, and how this was the first time he has written lyrics since the Widowmaker days in the ’90s.
Dee also offers his take on the recent David Ellefson scandal, explains why he has stayed sober throughout his entire career, his thoughts on separating the art from the artist, his story about listening to Lzzy Hale’s live monitor mix to make sure she was really singing live, his gripe with young bands honoring the past by replication, and his timeline for retiring as a live vocalist.
Petar, Brandon, and Sylvia discuss the retirement of the Dio hologram for now, the Dave Grohl vs. John Joseph Covid-19 battle, and, in honor of Aaron Lewis’s recent double performance, we go down memory lane of artists we saw play live while hammered.
Thank you to our sponsor, Metal Blade Records, for their continued support!
