Twisted Sister’s Dee Snider Says ‘I Owe Alice Cooper An Apology’
Twisted Sister’s Dee Snider recently posted a tweet on his Twitter account and expressed his sadness for not keeping his word to Alice Cooper while saying that he really thought he could make it when he made that promise.
Dee Snider is one of the most well-known lead singers in the metal scene, and he started climbing the ladder of international fame in the mid-’80s as the lead singer of Twisted Sister. However, he surprised his fans by quitting the band soon after their breakthrough but made it up to them with his solo career and side projects.
As you probably know, a couple of months ago Dee Snider had dropped the bombshell about his upcoming album. He had released his latest album ‘For the Love of Metal’ back in 2018, and his fifth studio album ‘Leave a Scar‘ will drop on July 30.
While this surprised his fans, there were apparently two people that were surprised even more. Recently, Dee’s producer Jamey Jasta posted a tweet and said that Snider’s ‘I Gotta Rock (Again)’ will debut in Alice Cooper’s radio show. This exciting announcement was followed by Snider’s response which was an apology.
Apparently, Alice Cooper was one of the very few people that Snider had opened up about his decision to retire. However, he forgot to inform his friend when he decided to get back in the studio which must have caught Alice Cooper off guard. Thus, Dee found it appropriate to apologize to Cooper for misleading him.
Dee Snider’s producer Jamey Jasta said:
“Holy shit! Alice Cooper’s ears must’ve been ringing yesterday when Dee and I were singing his praises cause we just got awesome news! Dee Snider’s ‘I Gotta Rock (Again)‘ will get a debut spin on the nationally syndicated ‘Nights with Alice Cooper‘ radio show on Tuesday, 6/29!”
To which Dee Snider responded as follows:
“I actually owe Alice Cooper an apology. He and Sebastian Bach were the only two people besides my fam, band & management I told that I was retiring back in 2019. I meant it at the time. I even gave away the stage shoes I’d been wearing for 20 yrs to a fan! But… Covid happened!”
