I'm Angry at A.J. for Dying

TMZ Interviews Dee on AJ

Dee Snider just unleashed a bitter rant about Twisted Sister drummer A.J. Pero's death -- saying his heart attack was totally avoidable, but Pero did nothing to save himself or protect his family.

Dee came on TMZ Live to talkTMZ Live to talk about the band's upcoming farewell tour, but ended up venting about Pero. Dee told us he's in the anger stage of grieving because ... he says Pero knew he had a history of heart disease in his family, but never got checked out.

A.J.'s autopsy results -- which Dee revealed -- are what really set him off about his friend's death.

Watch him unload ... he's a man on a mission.

A Tribute to AJ Pero

Adrenaline Mob - Tribute to AJ Pero

Adrenaline Mob at the Starland Ballroom 3/21/15 - A TRIBUTE TO A.J.PERO.  It's hard to comprehend that A.J. is gone. Check out this video from Saturday night's very special show honoring him. Jay Jay from Twisted Sister finished the night telling his favorite joke of A.J's before performing "YOU CAN'T STOP ROCK N' ROLL. Make sure you watch the end of the video--there's a short GoPro clip from Bonzo Bash last year. What an amazing drummer and person.  From the first time I shot him in 1984 for the STAY HUNGRY album cover to the Adrenaline Mob's photos for MEN OF HONOR, just last year, A.J. gave me attitude -- good, friendly rock n' roll attitude.  He will be sorely missed but never forgotten!  - Mark Weiss
