Dee Snider Says Twisted Sister Reunion Offers ‘Getting Close’

Former Twisted Sister frontman Dee Snider has said that the offers the band are receiving to reunite have almost become too good to turn down.

In an interview with “The Hook Rocks!” podcast, Snider offered an update on the status of the band, who did reunite for a one-off performance in 2023 for Twisted Sister’s induction to the Metal Hall of Fame.

“As a result of all the bands retiring and dying, the offers get bigger and bigger for the holdouts to come back. And we retired in 2016, I think it was. So we’re on eight years now of not playing, with no intention of coming back,” Snider explained. “But – my father, he says, ‘Everything before the word ‘but’ is bullsh*t – but at some point, you’ve gotta say, ‘Well, how can I say no to that?'”

He continued, “Is it there yet? No. Is it getting close? Yeah. Is there talk amongst us, like, ‘Well, in the event that the numbers do get there, and they sure as hell seem to be going in that direction, how are we gonna do this?’ So there’s a little bit of that conversation. And that’s both physically how we’re gonna do it and on a number of other levels.”

Snider also confirmed that the remaining band members are all friends, saying, “The surviving guys, we all talk and we’re all friends and we love each other. And that was one of the great things that came out of getting back together the first time is that we managed to fix the friendships and be friends and that, to me, is really why I wanted to do it in the first place, getting back [together] last time. So, anyway, we’ll see what happens.”
