    Semi OT: Twisted Sister to play Halftime Dec. 10

    TWISTED SISTER Frontman: 'Christmas' Album 'Might Have Actually Revived Us' - Nov. 30, 2006

    Trevor Fisher of IllinoisEntertainer.com recently conducted an interview with TWISTED SISTER frontman Dee Snider. A few excerpts from the chat follow:

    IllinoisEntertainer.com: So "A Twisted Christmas", this is it? The final chapter of TWISTED SISTER?

    Dee Snider: Not so fast [laughing]. I was saying it was the final chapter and the last nail in the coffins of our career, but as it turned out it might have actually revived us! Dude, we've shipped more units of this CD to all the major chains than anything we've done since the '80s. We're getting more press coverage, more attention, MySpace is getting tens of thousands of spins, we're doing "Leno" for the first time, [b]we're doing halftime at the Jets football game on December 10th[/b]; it's like, "Are you ****ing kidding me?"

    Twisted Sister rocks period! These guys are NY legends. They were stalwarts of the tri-state club scene decades ago, made it big in the mid 80's and then became kind of a joke. They re-united for a special fund raiser concert after 9-11 and toured last year. Better than ever....great halftime show.

    I agree. Its better to see these guys play for real then say watching Destinys Child lipsync a medley of 4 overplayed songs.

    Insider tidbit, Mangini has been blasting that song "We're Not Goin To Take It" (not sure of the song title, not a TS fan) during practices this week in preparation for the Green Bay game. :D

    I went to see them once out east.
    HORRIBLE HORRIBLE BAND
    They looked like drag queens and yelled FU to the audience in between songs.
    The singing sucked, the guitar playing sucked the drumming sucked, etc....

    The whole "You Can't stop rock and roll" album is great. Unfortunately the next release "Stay Hungry" was about a big a commercial sell-out as you will ever see.

    I saw them many times at the MH in SB. 'Sweet Jane', 'White Light, White Heat', 'Tie Your Mother Down'....excellent!

    TS and the Good Rats were my staples back then...

    I think I may still have my [B]"Death to Disco"[/B] tee shirt from 1977....

    Ditto. Is this a joke?

    Please tell me there aren't hundreds of other bands who would love to do this?
