Twisted Sister’s Dee Snider talked about the vaccine mandates for concerts as well as Ted Nugent’s stand against the COVID-19 vaccine during a recent interview with Consequence.
Since the pandemic’s beginning, Ted has argued that the virus is a hoax that the government uses to lie to the citizens and control everything in the country. In fact, he wanted the authorities to remove the restrictions and argued that masks are not effective.
However, the veteran rocker contracted with COVID-19 back in April and experienced the heavy side effects of the virus as a non-vaccinated person. It was such a painful experience that he even thought that he was going to die.
In the conversation, Dee pointed out that he supports the vaccine mandates for concerts and said that he doesn’t want to get sick because of the irresponsibility of some people who do not care about others.
Dee called out those who don’t want to get vaccinated to enter the concerts or shows and said they can attend Ted Nugent and Kid Rock’s concerts because they don’t have any restrictions.
Furthermore, Dee also mentioned when Ted got the virus, and revealed they have been friends for a long time, and he is so glad that Ted didn’t die from it. Nevertheless, he also admitted that he did snicker a bit when Ted got sick because Ted had to learn the truth the hard way.
Dee Snider shared his thoughts about the vaccine restrictions in the conversation:
“Your chance of making me sick is an invasion of my privacy, so f**k you. If you don’t like it, find your own band. Ted Nugent is out there somewhere. Kid Rock is welcoming you. You don’t have a right to infect me.
Ted Nugent learned the hard way. Did he not? He said he thought he was gonna die! So, that was his choice. And I’m glad Ted didn’t die.
I’m a Ted Nugent fan from the old days. We’ve been friends over the years. He’s gone a little crazy in his old age. I didn’t want to see him die, but I did snicker a little bit when he got sick.”
Later in the interview, Dee talked about the problem of the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame and said that it is understandable when people get mad, as they see Madonna inducted while other musicians are still waiting in line.
