Dee Snider Says Bruce Springsteen And Aerosmith Haven’t Said Anything About ‘The Guest List’ Yet
Twisted Sister lead singer Dee Snider shared a tweet to respond to a fan’s question about whether Aerosmith members or E Street Band’s Bruce Springsteen talked to him recently. The conversation’s major topic would be the newly released documentary of a very tragic event, the fire at the Station Nightclub.
The Station nightclub fire can be regarded as one of the greatest tragedies that happened in a rock concert. The evening of February 20, 2003, became an unforgettable event for many people, especially the audience in the club. Great White was performing at the time of the accident, and the pyrotechnics that their tour manager used caused all combustible materials to burn. One hundred people died, and 230 attendees got injured because of the fire.
The survivors suffered from smoke, heat, and crush along with a severe post-traumatic stress disorder, and people started to remember the infamous concert as ‘America’s deadliest rock concert.’ John Barylick wrote ‘Killer Show: The Station Nightclub Fire, America’s Deadliest Rock Concert’ and released it on May 26, 2015, to detail the situation. Later, it was announced that there would be a documentary movie on the fire.
‘The Guest List: America’s Deadliest Concert’ started to air on February 20, 2022, in the USA, and its cast includes Rick Regan, Dee Snider, Daniel Biechele, and John Barylick. Snider defended Great White members that people accused of causing the fire, saying that they didn’t intentionally kill people, but they should have been more careful. He added that the band’s former singer Jack Russell had been a broken man since then.
Following the documentary’s release, a fan wanted to know if Aerosmith, Bruce Springsteen, and Bon Jovi commented on the statements about them in the documentary. The Twisted Sister frontman replied to the question stating that he never got to speak with the musicians. In his recent tweet, Dee highlighted that their managers were ‘throwing up ridiculous roadblocks to protect their bands.’
A fan’s tweet read:
“I am not sure if you have talked about this or not, so I apologize if you have, but I am wondering if after ‘The Guest List’ documentary just aired did Aerosmith, Bruce Springsteen, or Bon Jovi have any comments in their defense?“
“Nothing so far. As I said, I never got to speak to the artists. It was their f’cking managers throwing up ridiculous roadblocks to ‘protect’ their bands. From what? Helping people in need?”
