Lemmy Saved Twisted Sister From The Wrath Of Angry Motorhead Fans

(Classic Rock) Dee Snider has recalled how Lemmy saved Twisted Sister from the wrath of angry Motorhead fans and how the moment set them on the road to stardom.

In an excerpt from his autobiography Shut Up and Give Me the Mic, Snider tells how he worried that his first UK appearance would be his last. Twisted Sister were opening for Motorhead and their start time meant the stage would be flooded with daylight so their trick of having played half a song before people say their eccentric stage gear wasn't going to work.

"We'd been warned about the potential reaction and we were freaking out. As we stood in our dressing room Lemmy came in and made an unsolicited proposition that blew us all away. Lemmy offered to introduce the band," Snider says. "To this day I am not sure why Lemmy showed us this kindness. It's probably just the way he is wired and one of the reasons he is so beloved."
