Alas, it seems that Dee Sniderand his merry band of louder-than-lifehair-metal maraudersTwisted Sisterare finally destined, for real, tonot take it anymore. On the heels of the tragic heart attack death ofdrummerA.J. Pero, the Long Island legends have announced thatthey’ll soon part ways. Naturally, Twisted Sister will not go quietly, sothe band will be honoring A.J. with a couple of tribute gigs and thensaying farewell to fans throughout 2016 on their amazingly named“Forty and F—k It” Tour.If this is truly where Twisted Sister historyends, so be it. The group is monumental in the annals of hard rock,heavy metal, glam, and pop culture. So instead of mourning TS’simminent demise, let’s celebrate the band’s most luminous high-profile moments, when, in all manner of ways, Dee Snider and theboys imbued all of humanity to stand up, pump a fist, and let it beknown: “I wannaROCK!”
