Doug Aldrich Calls Twisted Sister's Dee Snider 'A Total Jackass'
. (Classic Rock) Guitarist Doug Aldrich has hit back at Twisted Sister frontman Dee Snider after the singer questioned the axeman's contribution to Whitesnake in an online posting.
Aldrich quit David Coverdale's band in 2014 after 11 years with the outfit and was replaced by Joel Hoekstra. But despite being an integral part of Whitesnake for over a decade, Snider has called out the guitarist on Twitter.
Snider says: "Question: What Whitesnake album of importance did Doug Aldrich play on? I'm just sayin'. I'm tired of musicians who joined famous bands after their heyday claiming they are from those bands. They had nothing to do with success!"
Aldrich responded: "Dude, I just did my best to keep the band moving forward. Was blessed to compose 30 tunes. You are a total jackass though. Haha!"
Snider was then forced to issue an apology saying: "It was wrong for me to single you out. I'm sorry. My point is valid, but I shouldn't have singled you out." Read more and see the twitter exchange here.
