DEE SNIDER Talks About Singing At SCHWARZENEGGER Rally

In a recent interview with Perfect Pitch Online, TWISTED SISTER frontman Dee Snider described the experience of singing the SISTER classic "We're Not Gonna Take It" at an Arnold Schwarzenegger rally in Sacramento earlier this month.

"[Arnold] was very gracious and cool," Dee said. "Backstage, we talked about some USO stuff – TWISTED's been doing USO, and so has he, and he suggested going to the Middle East together and raising the morale of the troops. I said, 'Dude, I'm there.' I'm a true fan, and I tell you, I've liked this guy for a long time, and he's a man who gets things done. In his book, 'Stay Hungry', he says — and I thought he was just being, I don't know, optimistic – 'When I'm done being the biggest bodybuilder in history, I will then go into real estate. I will make millions. Then I'll go into movies and be the biggest movie star in the world, and then I'll go into politics.' This was written in 1979. And as the years have gone by, I've watched him and gone, 'Holy shit.' He's a real estate tycoon, became the biggest movie star, and then he married a Kennedy! I thought, 'This bastard's gonna do it!' I saw him at Jesse the Body's inauguration — he was getting ready! I promise the state of California that he's going to do what he says he's going to do. He gets things done. If you don't do the job right, we'll find the Perots and the Bloombergs and the Jesse the Bodys and the Arnold Schwarzeneggers and we'll find somebody who can do it right. We'll fucking elect Gopher from 'The Love Boat' if you don't do it right." Read more.
