Twisted Sister singer Dee Snider spoke in a recent interview with Jamey Jasta on his The Jasta Show and talked about his return to the music industry after taking a step back.
Twisted Sister released Love Is for Suckers back in 1987, and they started touring afterward. However, Dee announced his departure from the band in October as he stepped down from the scene.
In the conversation, Dee mentioned that he taught his time was up and he has got to make a room for other people because he hated all the old rockers who refused to retire from the scene.
However, Dee revealed that Jamey Jasta actually encouraged him to come back to the stage in a short period because he said that Dee has a place in the scene and showed his support to the iconic frontman.
Dee Snider said:
“My problem was – as much as I love the metal community, I didn’t know where I fit in. Where is my place? I was taking my own words too hard – stay hungry, there is no room for wannabes, has-beens, or the bad.
“At some point in the ’90s, I just said, ‘Alright, I think my time is up. I gotta make room for the other people.’ I hated all these old rockers who refused to go away.
And I stopped writing, I stopped creating, everything I did was that Twisted stuff and whatever, and stuff where I didn’t want to be really.
And then you come along and said, ‘No, no, man. You’ve got a place. Where? Let me show you!’ And I thank you for that, Jasta.”
