Twisted Sister frontman Dee Snider shared a post on his official Twitter page answering a fan’s question about Motörhead’s late vocalist Lemmy Kilmister and revealing an unexpectedly funny story about his fondness of drugs.
As you may know, Dee Snider is one of a few Rock and Roll artists that stays away from drugs and alcohol. Snider once told Fox 17 in an interview that the secret of his longevity is that he’s lived his life as an ‘anti-rock star.’
Here is what Snider said about drugs and alcohol:
“I never drank; I never did drugs. Even though my voiceover agent sold me as a cigarette-smoking whiskey drinker because I’ve got that husky voice – but that’s from screaming my lungs out my whole life.
I was working out and training, even at that point in my life. So, I was like the anti-rock star as far as the lifestyle went. I used to look at my peers, and they were sprinting, and I would go, ‘Guys, you do know life is a marathon, right? I’m not going for 27, I’m going for 87. … It’s definitely benefitted me in the long run.”
Dee Snider recently shared a post on his official Twitter page and answered a fan’s question about Motörhead frontman Lemmy Kilmister, revealing an old story about Lemmy’s usage of drugs, to be more specific coke.
Snider stated that Lemmy offered him coke yet due to the fact that Snider avoids drugs, he refused and Lemmy’s reaction was to die for since he actually liked having Snider’s share.
Here is what the fan asked:
“Tell us some funny backstage story with Lemmy.”
Here is what Snider said:
“So after one of our first shows together, Lemmy pulls me aside and cuts two lines of Coke, one for each of us. I say, ‘Lemmy, thanks, but I don’t get high.’ He looks at me for a second then says, ‘More for me!’ and does both lines himself. And that’s how it was for decades. :)”
As you might remember, Motörhead‘s legendary founder and the lead singer found dead in his house on December 28, 2015, only four days after his 70th birthday. Kilmister had suffered from many diseases, such as diabetes, hypertension, and prostate cancer, up until his death.
