DEE SNIDER CROSSES ENEMY LINES: TALKS TO THREE SIDES OF THE COIN ABOUT PAUL STANLEY AND KISS

For Immediate Release:

Twisted Sister front man Dee Snider sat down with the KISS fan podcast Three Sides Of The Coin to discuss his online “tiff” with KISS front man Paul Stanley and his Twitter battles with the KISS Army.  Dee had made a statement about guitarist Tommy Thayer and drummer Eric Singer being imposters and Paul responded on Chris Jericho’s podcast “Talk Is Jericho” by taking personal shots at Snider and his band rather than addressing what Snider had said.

Three SIdes hosts Michael Brandvold, Tommy Sommers, and Mark Ciccinni welcomed Snider to the show to have a discussion about the situation.

Dee started off by laying out as he called it, his KISS Kredentials.  Being on the outskirts of New York and a fan of glitter rock, he had heard about this band called KISS and bought the debut record the day it came out along with the six that followed. “I think I qualify as a fan of KISS and I think I qualify to have an opinion as a fan”, he said.

The “feud” apparently dates back to the 80’s when Paul had taken shots at Twisted Sister and Dee made the statement at the Monsters Of Rock show at Castle Donnington in England that he gets ready for the show by avoiding Paul Stanley. Credit Mark Teague

Throughout the show, Snider made points for his side of the debate on his feelings about why Tommy Thayer and Eric Singer should not be wearing Ace Frehley and Peter Criss’ make up.  He related it to The Beatles at one point.

“It was a unique band where you knew all four guys.  Paul, John, Ringo, George.  Ace, Paul, Peter, and Gene. It wasn’t like that with Alice Cooper.  It wasn’t like that with Twisted Sister.  It wasn’t like that with most bands.  It was unique where you knew the four guys.  That to me is why it’s disrespectful.  It is other people portraying them” Snider said.

“From the standpoint of the annoyance of the guys wearing the make up, wearing the costumes, singing the songs, Tommy being from a tribute band; that whole thing, I just like it better when Eric (Carr) was the fox.  I know they say that didn’t work or whatever, but have your own character”.

While admitting that he has not seen KISS live recently and has never seen them with Thayer and Singer in the make up, Snider listened as Mark Ciccini explained that Thayer, while wearing the make up, is in fact not impersonating Ace Frehley, not walking or moving like him even though Ace was Thayer’s biggest influence as a guitar player growing up.

Snider responded “I’ve seen pictures, I know he was in a tribute band, he’s very imitative, but if you tell me he’s not doing his moves and such, I’ll take your word”.

“I AM an asshole, but I’m not gonna hold my position if somebody makes a point.  You gotta give them a point” he continued.

The discussion turned to how many fans have come on board at different times in their career.  For a lot of fans, this is the only KISS that they have ever known which Snider acknowledged and understood the point along with comparing it to the same with Twisted Sister.

When Michael Brandvold asked if Snider would like the Three Sides guys to help negotiate a potential peace treaty with Paul Stanley, Snider laughed and pointed out that they would need Stanley there to negotiate it.  Then Snider went on to reidderate his point about why this became such an issue and why he needed to hit back with the letter he posted.

“I think I vocalized an opinion that some people were very upset about and Paul, he didn’t attack, or question, or address my opinion, he attacked me as a personality, as a performer, as an entertainer, and my band who were just innocent.  He called us a bunch of buffoons; he took some cheap shots at us.  When I woke up and saw how it exploded; I’m not big on taking shit.  If Paul Stanley would have put me in my place saying what you guys (Three Sides Of The Coin) said in his own way, I’d have nothing more to say other than ‘point counterpoint, man.  That was my opinion and you just put me in my place and told me your side of it and fair enough’, but when he went after me and my band personally, I had to come back hard…real hard.  To me I fear no band, I fear nobody.  I sang Rock & Roll in front of Robert Plant and I basically did it just to shake my dick in his face”

And Snider’s thoughts on his Twitter war with KISS fans?

“Do whatever you want, KISS Army.  It’s kind of fun, really.  It’s like shooting fish in a barrel for god sakes”

FORMER REALITY STAR ADMITS HE NEARLY COMMITTED SUICIDE

FORMER REALITY STAR ADMITS HE NEARLY COMMITTED SUICIDE

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

November 19th, 2014

"Big John" Murray  - Rock Of Love/Monsters Of Rock Cruise

“Big John” Murray
– Rock Of Love/Monsters Of Rock Cruise

 

“Big John” Murray, who appeared in two seasons of VH1’s “Rock Of Love” with Poison front man Bret Michaels in 2008 and 2009, appeared on the November 18th edition of “Another FN Podcast With Izzy Presley” and made a startling confession.  On May 28th, 2010, he nearly committed suicide.

While talking about the extent of his drug and alcohol use, he admitted this publicly for the first time ever:

It got so bad, I’ll never forget this. Memorial Day weekend, May 28th, 2010 I was in Salt Lake City; nobody knows this, well maybe a few people know this.

I sat in a dark room about three in the morning and I put a pistol in my mouth.  I cocked it and said, “OK dad”.  I sat there for a minute contemplating, contemplating. 

I had seen and done it all.  The “Rock Of Love” and everything was already done; THAT made it even worst, because then everybody wanted to party with ya, and I got into such a hole that I was just like, “I’m done.  I’m done with this, I don’t want it anymore”.

I put a pistol in my mouth and I sat there and thought about it and said, “OK Dad, you’ve got 24 hours to prove to me or give me a sign, or something, to show my why I’m here”.

I’ll be damned that the next day I didn’t meet the woman that is now my wife. 

When asked what stopped him, he replied, “It was almost like there was something pushing on my hand to get it back out of my mouth.”

He went on to say that veterans (which he is) are killing themselves at a rate of 22 a day, so he is not afraid to talk about what happened to him and share his story.  “I have a story where I was a hair pull away of a trigger of ending it all to turning it around and living…I wouldn’t change any of it for the world.”

Throughout the interview, he talked about how the fame from the TV show combined with the drugs and alcohol turned him into someone he wasn’t and how fame in itself is a drug.  At one point he was up to a half gallon of Jim Beam a day.

Murray also told stories about his days as a professional wrester in ECW, working with bands like RATT, Cinderella, and Saliva, and doing cocaine with Kid Rock. He also ended the long argument about Bret Michaels hair. “It’s the most expensive hair extensions you can buy”.

Big John is currently residing in Cincinnati and spending time with his mother who is aging.  He will be back on the Monsters Of Rock Cruise in 2015.

The entire show is available via Spreaker and iTunes:

MANAGING PARTNER OF LA KISS, BRETT BOUCHY, COMPARES RAVEN’S OWNER STEVE BISCIOTTI TO DONALD STERLING

September 23, 2014

For Immediate Release

MANAGING PARTNER OF LA KISS, BRETT BOUCHY, COMPARES RAVEN’S OWNER STEVE BISCIOTTI TO DONALD STERLING

The KISS inspired Podcast, Three Sides Of The Coin welcomed Brett Bouchy, the managing partner of the LA KISS to discuss the team, the Arena Football League, “4th And Loud”, working with Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley, and how the NFL and Baltimore Ravens handled the Ray Rice situation. 4AL-Cast-Brett-590x375-I

Hosts Michael Brandvold, Tommy Sommers, and Mark Cicchini get into a discussion with Brett regarding Ray Rice.  Bouchy said what surprised him was the response to the video when everybody knew what had already happened and the reason Rice was released was because the NFL and the Ravens were going to lose corporate partners. Then he went on to compare the Ray Rice situation to Ray Lewis and call out Steve Bisciotti, comparing him to Donald Sterling.

Bouchy said,“Two days prior [to the video being released of Rice knocking out his then fiancé], they were talking about what a great guy Ray Rice was.  They were trying to rehabilitate his image and then you look at the Baltimore Ravens and what happened with Ray Lewis.

On January 31st, 2000, Ray Lewis was in [an] altercation which left 2 people dead.  There was a brawl.  He was indicted. He went to a trial.  He pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor and you know what? Back then there wasn’t social media and it just kind of died and it went away and now there’s a statue out front of the Raven’s stadium.

It is appalling that nobody has really brought that up about the Ravens.  Steve Bisciotti, who’s the Raven’s owner who put that statue up?  You can put him in the same class as Donald Sterling, from my stand point, because what he did was disgusting because of the double standard that was created with Ray Lewis.”

“We don’t know what happend, but at the end of the day, we know something happened that he was a part of and how you can celebrate him like that, with a statue, is appauling to me” he continued.

Bouchy also discussed the LA KISS, their dismal season, the tv show “4th And Loud, and much, much more.

CINDERELLA GUITARIST JEFF LABAR DISCUSSES HIS NEW RECORD AND GETTING PULLED OVER WHILE SMOKING CRACK

September 23, 2014

For Immediate Release

Jeff LaBar, Cinderella’s guitar player joined Izzy Presley on Another FN’ Podcast to talk about his new record “One For The Road”, which is available now via iTunes, Amazon, RAT PAK records, and Best Buy. http://www.ratpakrecordsamerica.com/jefflabarJeff Labar CD Cover

While talking about the record, LaBar tells stories about he and former Skid Row front man Sebastian Bach ended up rooming together at the Moscow Music Peace Festival because then Skids drummer, Rob Affuso booted Bach from their room.

He also talked about how Tom Keifer gave him a 1959 Sunburst Les Paul, the horrible deal that was offered to Cinderella by Gene Simmons before they were signed which basically said that Gene would get all of the publishing, own everything, and all songs would be written or co-written by Simmons.

Jeff then went on to reveal the story of how he was pulled over by the police  in the 90’s on his way to visit his son, who was about 3 at the time, while smoking crack and carrying a couple bundles of heroine.  “The less Cinderella worked, the more heroine I did, and the more heroine I did, the more crack I smoked”. After a court ordered stint in rehab, he was clean.

LaBar had been clean for years until his hip replacement surgery in 2011, when his doctors gave him pain killers…and more pain killers.  Whenever he asked for more, they gave them to him.  He did a stint in rehab and has been off them since. He called doctors and pain managers “legal drug dealers”.

When asked if that is why he was able to get out and play 10 days after the surgery, LaBar replied “Absolutely”.  “I couldn’t walk but I could play guitar”.
