“Twisted Sister was a metal band. Before it was labeled anything else, in ’81 and ’82 and ’83 when we were touring with Motorhead and Maiden and Saxon and Metallica, nobody was blinking.

“Nobody was going, ‘What are these guys doing out here?’ It was metal. And that was just the way it was. Nobody even thought twice.

“The place was packed from the minute the doors opened. And they cheered as loud for Metallica as they had cheered for us. Nobody left when Metallica went off.”
