“Alice Cooper is a great hero of mine,” he says. “Early on in my career I had been so vocal about being inspired by Alice, he actually came to see Twisted Sister in concert.”

“First he sent me a dozen black roses and a personal note. Later I remember doing a photo shoot backstage, putting on my make-up, and Alice standing there and making fun of me. I said: ‘Are you fucking kidding me? I’m doing this because of you! You’re busting my balls because I’m putting on make-up? C’mon, man!'”

Dee Snider Doesn’t Approve Of Alice Cooper Playing Golf As A Metal Man

Elsewhere in the interview, Dee Snider has also commented on Alice Cooper‘s golf addiction. Saying that he doesn’t approve of it, Snider added that golf is not metal.

“To be honest, I don’t approve of Alice playing golf,” Snider adds. “Golf, to me, is not metal.

“Once I told him: ‘Can’t you at least get some studded-leather golf club covers?’ But Alice just piddled off to do his golf game, because the guy is serious about golf.”

Back in this past March, Alice Cooper had shared his honest opinion on Dee Snider after the interviewer mentioned Snider‘s Rock Hall criticisms. At the time, Cooper had said that Snider is a great guy.

“Well, I think everybody that’s like Dee Snider, who deserves it,” Cooper said. “I mean, Dee was not just a lead singer, he did some politics there, and he was also a spokesman, and he was just an all-around great guy.

“Twisted Sister didn’t sell a gigantic amount of records, they didn’t even make that many records, but they were effective, and that part of Hall of Fame is – how much did you affect rock ‘n’ roll, I mean, that’s why bands, like Tom Waits, how many records did Tom Waits sell?”
