deesnider400 As previously reported, Twisted Sister frontman Dee Snider and KISS frontman Paul Stanley have been taking swipes at each in the press after Stanley was questioned about an interview Snider did with Eddie Trunk.

During the Eddie’s podcast interview, Dee criticized KISS for allowing guitarist Tommy Thayer and drummer Eric Singer to wear Ace Frehley and Peter Criss’ makeup. Stanley fired back on Jericho’s podcast by stating that Snider “is a wannabe, has always been a wannabe and desperately wants attention and to be taken seriously, and that will never happen because he’s obviously clueless that he and his whole band are a bunch of buffoons.”

Now Snider has posted the following retort to Stanley on his Facebook page:

A letter to Paul Stanley of Kiss in response to comments about Twisted Sister and myself he made on a recent Chris Jericho podcast.

Dear Paul, September 9th, 2015

First off, thanks for giving me the attention I—as you noted– so desperately wanted.

Now, I’ve always had nothing but respect for your band, and you as a performer, but it really comes as no surprise that the feeling isn’t mutual. For some reason you are oddly threatened by me. This said, your recent comments about my band and I on Chris Jericho’s podcast was a typical diversionary tactic used in an attempt to change the subject, rather than answer the actual accusation or question. It’s the oldest interviewing trick in the book.

As far as my “whole band being a bunch of buffoons” goes, that’s a pretty ironic statement coming from you. The argument could easily be made that Kiss is the “king of the buffoons”, so in an odd way you’ve paid Twisted Sister quite a compliment. It takes one to know one.

Lastly, on the subject of me being a “wannabe”? Do you really think so? Well then…any time, any stage. But let’s do this old school –no costumes, no pyro, no bullshit – let’s just get up there and rock. I will bury you, son.

Sincerely, the attention getting, wannabe, lead buffoon of Twisted Sister,

Dee Snider

PS: Did I mention that I’m clean, sober, razor sharp and fully capable of defending myself from any kind of lame attack? Just ask Al Gore. 🙂

  1. The decade Dee took off to deliver Chinese food around NYC helped his voice to hold up better over the years. TS cant fill my living room with or without their original members.

  2. Thankfully, Dee did explain that he is clean an sober. He is keenly aware that is the next phase of any Gene or Paul butthurtness. Always call people drunks and drug addicts.

  3. So a “c” rate Dee Snider says some stupid s–t on Eddie’s podcast, attacking Tommy Thayer and Eric Singer, plus bashes Gene and Paul on decisions they made, completely out of nowhere and he’s got a problem with Paul answering a direct SOLICITED question by Jericho about this jackass’ comments?? Your response is so freaking hysterical Dee that I don’t know where to begin…your response proves you are nothing but a wannabe, and you sound like a little kid…Paul doesn’t need to waste his time even acknowledging you, much less answering you…”leader of the pack” Dee?? Reality TV? Going Country on VH1? And don’t forget that fat, bowl cut wearing Jay Jay French…also on with Eddie (TMS) French took shots at Kiss and said Gene ruined the band with his marketing, etc..another nobody in the music biz throwing stones at Kiss for no reason…it really is laughable. And finally Dee, you’re band is a complete Kiss wannabe, and your record sales show you are nothing but second rate with 2-3 good songs…when was that last record Dee?? If it wasn’t for Eddie Trunk having to fill space, who would be interviewing you?? And for Eddie, stop putting this buffoon on your show…he’s been on like 5 times, and what the hell does he have to talk about?? Oh, that’s right he’ll talk about Kiss…hmmm, great way to keep your name out there Dee…otherwise we’d only know you exist if you came to my house to deliver my pizza…

  4. The fact is Dee only said what many classic KISS fans have already said. Paul made it abundantly clear with his response that he doesn’t need anyone’s blessing, which includes fan boy Dee Snyder. Unfortunately, he won’t just come out and say it’s his band and mind your own business. He had to make it a personal attack. This is the kind of shoot the messenger response that would make Donald Trump proud. At the end of the day, Dee has more substance in his pinky finger than Paul has in his body and checkbook. Who you side with really depends on what you prefer more, sizzle or steak.
