Twisted Sister frontman Dee Snider revealed that he wants to be like Black Sabbath vocalist Ozzy Osbourne while opening up about the decision to disband Twisted Sister during an interview with Classic Rock Magazine.
As you may remember, Twisted Sister disbanded 4 years ago with their final concert on November 12, 2016, in Monterrey. Frontman Dee Snider explained the main reason for their break up and during an old interview, he stated that the performance intensity with Twisted Sister was not working for him anymore.
Her is what Snider said:
“Basically, the level of intensity that I performed at with Twisted Sister, I had to stop while I could still deliver that before I could no longer deliver that. The headbanging, the thrashing, all that energy… Where Alice always seemed like a crotchety old dude, and he’s crawling around the stage, that works great for a 72-year-old dude now.
But what I did does not work for a 62-year-old. I mean, it’s just too f–king hard to stay in the shape. Just to keep that going just got harder and harder. I said, ‘I wanna stop while people are still smiling and not looking at me saying, ‘Oh, remember when he was good?””
During a recent interview, Dee Snider, once again, opened up about the decision to disband Twisted Sister and stated that fans, unfortunately, will not be able to see Twisted Sister again most likely since Snider has his own sound now after working with a band for so many years.
Dee Snider also revealed that he wants to be like Ozzy Osbourne when it comes to his career and having a solo career after being the frontman of Black Sabbath. Snider stated that playing new music on stage only belongs to him and closing his performance with an iconic Twisted Sister song is his dream.
Here is what Snider said:
“Look, the odds of seeing Twisted again are very, very slim. I still talk to the guys and we’re all friends, but I really don’t see it happening, especially as I’ve found a sound for me. It took so long and so many misfires to get here, I want to spend the remainder of my time doing that.
My goal is to be like Ozzy Osbourne. Not on a personal level, but on a musical one, where he started out in Sabbath, and as a solo artist playing new music and just did Paranoid at the end of the show. That’s my dream.”
