Twisted Sister singer Dee Snider made his latest appearance on Ultimate-Guitar and shared his honest opinion on Ozzy Osbourne’s return after his farewell tour.
On 1992, Ozzy Osbourne announced with a sudden decision that he would make his farewell tour under the name of No More Tours, which started on June 9, 1992 and concluded on November 5, 1992. But after that tour, Ozzy Osbourne announced his return.
In the interview he made with David Slavković from UG, Dee Snider made flash comments on Ozzy Osbourne’s return. He thanked Ozzy Osbourne for No More Tours shirts but criticized him after his return decision.
During the conversation, the interviewer said what he thinks about the reunion decisions of Motley Crue and Rage Against The Machine. He was also asked what the situation of Twisted Sister.
Dee Snider said the following words after the questions:
“I think it’s bullshit. When you say farewell… Rage Against the Machine breaks up – that’s not retirement, they broke up, and they reformed, and that’s great.
“But when you do a farewell tour, and you announce this, and you sell tickets, and you have a t-shirt that says ‘No More Tours’ – thank you very much, Ozzy, I bought one of those – and then you come back, that’s bullshit.
“So when you say, ‘We’re retiring,’ people now don’t take it seriously. So, you know, it’s like a joke, and I think that a part of it is that these artists have nothing else going on. And I realize that – without playing, they have no career.
“I have done so many things – I mentioned Broadway, I’ve been doing radio for 30 years now, voiceover work, I act, I write screenplays, I’m gonna be directing my first two movies, I was supposed to be directing in May but COVID stopped that; I just finished my first novel…
“And now, in the late stage of my life, I’ve found my voice, my place in the metal community. After a lot of attempts over the last couple of decades, I’ve finally found my place.
“So, if I do anything musically, I’m not gonna go backward; I’m going to continue forwards with Dee Snider for the new millennium, musically.”
Twisted Sister made his latest appearance on 2016.
