Twister Sister Faked Being Junkies

(Classic Rock) Twister Sister's Dee Snider and Jay Jay French have recalled how they sold the illusion of being junkies in order to make more money. In a clip from an upcoming documentary they look back at their early club performances, where they'd perform a spoof of The Monkees theme tune called Hey Hey We're The Junkies, and tell audiences they were suffering the effects of rolling too many joints.
Frontman Snider says: "I'd take a Heineken and you could see the frost on the bottle. I'd roll it on my neck and my face to feel the cold, and I'd relay this to the audience. I'd take my first sip and you could see people running for the bars.

We were working the bars there was a correlation between our ability to sell alcohol to the crowds and the kind of pay we'd get. It was phoney bullsh*t, but I was trying to sell booze!"

French adds: "The concept we were doing coke, drinking, getting f**ked up, f**king women and all this stuff, was bullsh*t from top to bottom. I never made an attempt to sell it like it was real. How could I possibly work this hard and be f**ked up?" Check out the clip here.
