Twisted Sister To Move Ahead With Live Plans Despite AJ Pero's Death
The drummer died of a heart attack in his sleep in Poughkeepsie, NY at the age of 55 while on tour with Adrenaline Mob; he was just days away from meeting with French to discuss Twisted Sister's upcoming summer schedule.
"We will honor AJ during our shows this year," French writes on his blog at inc.com "A professional drummer who is a friend will be filling in shortly. This will allow us to fulfill our touring obligations and, most important, give us some space to make some very hard decisions about our future."
Pero was a member of Twisted Sister from 1982-1986, 1997 and from 2001 forward. The drummer joined Adrenaline Mob in 2013 following a split with Mike Portnoy. Read more here.
