Svend ThaningBudapest is a safe city and one of the must beautiful cities in the world. Don't worry guys we will beat the suckers with beerbelt rather than bombelts. Steve take time off and enjoy this beautiful city. First time for me though I live in another beautiful city Copenhagen where the bad guys already kill some poor Jews. Here I live next to the synagogue though I'm not a new. But those fanatics Muslims hates every inches of the West. But we will beat them.

Hi Folks, I recently played Guitare en scene festival in France and it was fantastic. Following me was Twisted Sister who are celebrating their 40th anniversary.

Twisted Sister started out as a Long Island band and they were the best. We would do everything we could to get into the gigs. Being between 14-17 years old and the fact that there shows were always packed, it was hard. But there was no other band at the time that had the confidence and intensity of these guys. They were totally committed and we LOVED it!

I was able to catch most of their show at the festival in France and they have not lost one bit of that intensity and confidence. I felt like a teenager experiencing once again the thing I loved most about Rock music. They rocked harder than ever.
Dee Snider is the quintessential rock star and was on total fire with all pistons firing, voice, look and moves.

James RodriguezWow Dee Snider still Rocking! Growing up on L.I. I saw then many times. One day I was diving on Merrick Rd in my first car - metallic green Dodge Arrow with a Twisted Sister bumper sticker on the back. This guy comes roaring up behind me in a black Corvette with his lights flashing and I'm thinking OK what is this guy doing you can go around me, he then pulls up next to me, sticks his head out window and says "Twisted Sister! Fuck yeah dude! Rock on!" I said fuck yeah rock on Dee, and then he laughed and just took off ahead of me. Oh the memories of back then... thanks for sharing Steve!

Bill LarkinAll i know is that what you felt with TS, I felt when i saw YOU in Paris for PAW Steve ! I still love Twisted sister's rock anthems today and they are in great shape.(Like you i rocked out to them but it was when they were on mtv in the 80's) But, so was your 26 year old album played live that still sounds fresh today!

William LeggBack in the day,i loved the humour of twisted sister and dee snider came across as a very intelligent and funny guy,it just seems at odds with the much more complicated music of steve vai...however,rock n roll is rock n roll,a live rock band that are good at what they do are always worth watching!

Thiago GarciaI feel blessed for having the opportunity to see both Steve Vai and Twisted Sister gigs twice even living in Brazil. That kind of post is one of the main reasons why there is no other music style so awesome as rock and roll. Most of them are geniuses who have tremendous respect for each other, not making a battle to see who is better, but making great songs together. That's a very noble act. Long live rock and roll!

Jim ProiettiMe and Bill Allen,our monitor wizard at the House of Blues here in Myrtle Beach,were talking about Long Island bands just the other night. Our determination was Twisted Sister and Blue Oyster Cult had the top slots! He is from Long Island,so I deferred to his judgement but agree.
