Twister Sister frontman Dee Snider is putting the current COVID situation bluntly.
"The live music industry is screwed for the time being," Snider told Metal Hammer. "It's hopefully not screwed forever, but this is certainly going to leave a mark. Everything that's happening is just horribly damaging, especially for young artists who don't have the legacy or the licensing or branding that a band like Twisted Sister has."
He doesn't think people will be flocking to shows in droves right away. And he isn't interested in playing partially filled, mask wearing, arenas. Saying the "one-ness" of rock'n'roll will be lost and "If that's not there, I don't want it any more."
