Twisted Sister’s frontman Dee Snider recently posted a tweet on his Twitter account and made a controversial claim about classic rock bands, such as Guns N’ Roses and AC/DC, performing with only one original member while using the band’s name.
Dee Snider is one of the rockstars who are the most active on social media. Snider enjoys using his Twitter account as a platform where he can share his views on social and political matters, comment on the current pandemic, and discuss his views on rock and metal music and bands.
With his recent tweet, Dee Snider made a controversial claim about iconic bands such as Guns N’ Roses and AC/DC. Snider said that he doesn’t like it when classic rock bands continue touring when the band consists of only one original member and the rest are new members.
As you might remember, earlier this year, Dee Snider had made a similar claim during an interview. He had said that he finds it disrespectful that KISS‘s original members Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley, want their new members Eric Singer and Tommy Thayer to put on the makeup of the former guitarist Ace Frehley and drummer Peter Criss.
Similarly, Sinder recently said that there cannot be a Guns N’ Roses with only Axl and an AC/DC with only Angus. Snider said that he finds it wrong that they keep using the band’s name even though there’s only one original member. He added that this also applies to The Beatles and claimed Ringo Starr is not The Beatles only by himself.
Here’s what Dee Snider said in his recent tweet:
“Me actually. Guns N’ Roses with only Axl? Not cool. AC/DC with only Angus? No good. Bands with only the original drummer calling going by the band name? Uh-uh. Ringo ain’t the Beatles, baby!”
