Doug Aldrich Was Surprised At Dee Snider Insult
. (Classic Rock) Former Whitesnake guitarist Doug Aldrich says Dee Snider "didn't know what he was talking about" when he went on a recent Twitter attack challenging his contribution to the band.
Twisted Sister frontman Snider called Aldrich out on Twitter, saying he was "tired of musicians who joined famous bands after their heyday claiming they are from those bands."
Aldrich tells Eddie Trunk: "We've done gigs together, Twisted and Whitesnake, but I never really met Dee that I can remember. I've got no problem with the guy."
He says the attack "hit me out of the blue," adding: "I was up late scouring eBay, looking for old guitars, as I do at night a lot, and I got a message that Dee had posted something. And I went on there, and I was just like, 'What is up with that?'
"Everybody knows Dee is a super-smart cat. I thought, 'This is weird.' It was like he was not educated at all and just spouted out this thing. So I tried to educate him a little bit of where I came from with Whitesnake, and I just tagged it with a little smackdown quick." Read more here.
