Geez bro, we probably ran into each other more than once....I was at the Soap quite often.

Yea...remember those days, when there actually was such a thing as the Club Circuit in the tri-State area?

Soap Factory, My Father's Place., L'Amour, L'Amour East, Spit....etc, etc.

Damn I miss that...

By: North County Times - Rock, Instrumental

ROCK
A "A Twisted Christmas"

Twisted Sister

Razor And Tie

This is, quite simply, the best hard rock Christmas album ever made, and one of the best rock 'n' roll Christmas albums ---- period ---- since Elvis made his. It's that good.

The words "clever," "intelligent" and "groundbreaking" have seldom appeared in critics' assessments of Twisted Sister, but that's exactly what this 11-song collection is. The quintet melds classic Christmas tunes with their favorite heavy metal songs to create a disc like no other. For instance, singer Dee Snider realized that the chorus to the band's biggest hit, "We're Not Gonna Take It," is almost note-for-note the same as the melody to "O Come All Ye Faithful." So the band played the backing music for the Twisted song, while Snider sang the traditional hymn lyrics, and the result is an instant holiday classic.

"I'll Be Home for Christmas," a duet with Lita Ford, is set to the music of Twisted's "The Price," and the band's "Rock and Roll Saviors" morphs into "Let It Snow." Other bands also get the treatment: AC/DC's "Problem Child" becomes "Silver Bells," Judas Priest's "You've Got Another Things Coming" becomes "I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus," and Black Sabbath's "Never Say Die" and "War Pigs" are blended into "Deck the Halls" and "God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen."

The one original track, "Heavy Metal Christmas," is a Twisted interpretation of "The Twelve Days of Christmas" ("Four quarts of Jack, three studded belts, two pairs of spandex pants, and a tattoo of Ozzy.") It also has ferocious bass riffing by Mark "The Animal" Mendoza that alone is worth the price of the disc.

This is the band's final album before calling it quits next year, and they saved the best of a 30-year career for last.

Dude...I must have seen them a million times in the clubs. I used to see them when Dee first joined the band in a craphole in Yonkers called the Rising Sun. :lol:

That was done intentionally. If you get the album, there are a few more songs that are made to sound like classic Twisted Sister songs.

Good stuff. How the hell does Dee maintain that voice for 30 years?

Even their music videos havent changed much, same "person who is pissed off at Twisted Sister" theme then all of the sudden the band appears :lol:

He doesn't smoke, drink or do drugs. Look at Ronnie James Dio...he's 62 for f's sake and sounds as good as ever. :wink:

Ya gotta love it! Maybe....just maybe....this might bring some FUN back into music and give rock & roll the kick in the nuts it's been desperately needing since 1992.

I was listening to the "House of Hair" about a week ago and Dee mentioned they had a Christmas album - then he played "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas" and it started with a lame choir boy sound (which I of course knew was a hoax) then it started for real. I have to say I didn't much care for it - no matter which way you chop it, it is still a Christmas carol - Sister tried though - gotta give them that. :lol: :rawk:

They did a great job on this! They were in and out of the changing riffs with no problem at all. Very good CD!:wink:
