Twisted Sister singer Dee Snider is not a fan of the Swiss heavy metal band Krokus and it has nothing to do with their music.
In 1982, his wife Suzette was hired to make their stage costumes, but they did not like what she created and their manager refused to pay her. In his autobiography, Shut Up and Give Me the Mic, Snider, referring to them as Crapus, writes, “These guys ripped off and threatened my wife. You have no idea how close you were to landing in the bottom of a lake.” So it will be interesting to see what happens when both Twisted Sister and Krokus share the bill at the Hellfest festival in Clisson, France in June.
Krokus bassist Chris von Rohr says, "The clothes did not correspond to what we had agreed -- too much harlequin style. So we made a bonfire of it. If we have not treated his wife with due respect, we are sorry.” Von Rohr adds that he hopes they could bury the hatchet and have a drink.
Snider is willing to listen, saying, "If they mean business I think it’s a nice gesture -- but I’ll have to ask my wife if she can forgive Krokus.”
Snider returns to Celebrity Apprentice this Sunday night on NBC.
