Krokus Offer To End Feud With Twisted Sister
In 1982 Snider's wife Suzette was hired to make stage costumes for the Swiss outfit's US tour. But the band didn't like her work and their manager refused to pay her.
That enraged him to the point that he dedicated a chapter of his autobiography, Shut Up And Give Me The Mic, to slating Krokus, calling them "Crapus" all the way through and saying: "These guys ripped off and threatened my wife. You have no idea how close you were to landing in the bottom of a lake."
With the benefit of hindsight, bassist Chris von Rohr admits Krokus could have handled the situation better. He tells Blick: "The clothes did not correspond to what we had agreed – too much harlequin style. So we made a bonfire of it." But he adds: "If we have not treated his wife with due respect, we are sorry." more on this story
