Two weeks ago, Jay Jay French, the guitarist of Twisted Sister, has made an interview with Rocking With Jam Man to reveal Dee Snider‘s joining to the band. According to Jay Jay, Snider could make most musicians’ couldn’t.

“My voice wans’t very good and I couldn’t do the songs that my agent felt we needed to do in order to become more popular,” says French. “We just weren’t becoming popular enough because we couldn’t do enough songs.

“Back in the day of the bar scene, the more successful bands were able to cover Led Zeppelin and Aerosmith, and that kind of stuff, and I couldn’t do that vocal. Dee could, so we hired him because he could sing Led Zeppelin songs, that’s why he originally was hired.”
