Dee Snider kertoi mietteensä yhtyeiden kuten Ozzyn ja Mötley Cruen comebackeista lopettamispäätöksen jälkeen: ”Se on paskaa”

Yhdysvaltalaisesta rock-yhtye Twisted Sisteristä tuttu laulaja Dee Snider ei ilmeisesti lämpene sille nykyajan trendille, että yhtyeet tekevät paluun lopettamispäätöksen jälkeen. Laulaja on kertonut Ultimate Guitar -lehdelle antamassaan haastattelussa suoran mielipiteensä asiasta. Haastattelussa nousivat esille niin Ozzy Osbourne kuin Rage Against The Machinekin. Sniderin mielestä ihmiset eivät edes ota lopettamisilmoituksia todesta, vaan ajattelevat asiaa enemmänkin vitsinä. Ensimmäisten elokuviensa kuvaamiseen valmistautuva Snider kertoi:

”I think it’s bullshit. When you say farewell… Rage Against the Machine breaks up – that’s not retirement, they broke up, and they reformed, and that’s great. But when you do a farewell tour, and you announce this, and you sell tickets, and you have a t-shirt that says ’No More Tours’ – thank you very much, Ozzy, I bought one of those – and then you come back, that’s bullshit. So when you say, ’We’re retiring,’ people now don’t take it seriously. So, you know, it’s like a joke, and I think that a part of it is that these artists have nothing else going on. And I realize that – without playing, they have no career. I have done so many things – I mentioned Broadway, I’ve been doing radio for 30 years now, voiceover work, I act, I write screenplays, I’m gonna be directing my first two movies, I was supposed to be directing in May but COVID stopped that; I just finished my first novel… And now, in the late stage of my life, I’ve found my voice, my place in the metal community. After a lot of attempts over the last couple of decades, I’ve finally found my place. So, if I do anything musically, I’m not gonna go backward; I’m going to continue forwards with Dee Snider for the new millennium, musically.”
