DEE SNIDER OF TWISTED SISTER IS NOT FOND OF KROKUS IN HIS NEW BIOGRAPHY

KROKUS burned some stage clothes in the 80's that were hand-sown by his wife. Dee Snider thinks that's not at all funny.

It could all be
so beautiful. A few days after the release of "Dirty Dynamite» KROKUS can already reap gold (record sales). But someone puts a spoiler on their recent success: No other than U.S. shock rocker Dee Snider, who with the band Twisted Sister ("I Wanna Rock") sold ten million albums. In his new biography, "I Still Wanna Rock", he has nothing nice to say about the chart toppers from Switzerland. For an entire chapter he rages about KROKUS, calls the band "Crapus" ("of crap" - crap). "You have no idea how close you came landing on the bottom of a lake."

The reason for his outburst
: KROKUS commissioned Snider's wife Suzette in 1982 to sew stage outfits for the band's U.S. tour, but the former KROKUS manager refused to pay her for her services. "These guys ripped off my wife and threatened her," says Snider, who points out that his wife's mother emigrated from Switzerland. "I was proud of this rock band from the home country of my mother" says Suzette. But the pride has turned into rage. Chris Von Rohr recalls." The clothes did not match at all our expectations. Too much harlequin style. So we made a bonfire of it." Many years have passed and KROKUS are older and wiser. "If we have not treated his wife with due respect, we are sorry."
 
Chris Von Rohr proposes to Dee and his wife to bury the hatchet and drink a beer or two together at a festival this year wheer both bands will perform in reconciliation of an event that happened over 30 years ago. Swiss newspaper "Blick" reached Snider by phone and submitted KROKUS' peace offer.  "If they are serious, I think it's a nice gesture," says the U.S. singer. "But I have to ask my wife first if she is ready to forgive KROKUS."

Dee Snider of Twisted Sister

Rockstar macht KROKUS schwere Vorwürfe

Die Krokus-Musiker verbrannten Kleider, die seine Frau genäht hatte. Das findet Dee Snider gar nicht lustig

Es könnte alles so schön sein. Wenige Tage nach der Veröffentlichung von «Dirty Dynamite» können Krokus bereits Gold einheimsen. Doch einer stört den Erfolg: US-Schockrocker Dee Snider, der mit der Band Twisted Sister («I Wanna Rock») zehn Mil­lionen Alben verkauft hat. In seiner neuen Biografie «I Still Wanna Rock» schiesst er gegen die Solothurner Chartstürmer. Ein ganzes Kapitel lang wütet er, nennt die Band «Crapus» (von crap, englisch für Mist). «Ihr habt keine Ahnung, wie nahe dran ihr gewesen seid, auf dem Grund eines Sees zu landen.»

 

Grund für den Zoff: Sniders Frau Suzette hat 1982 für Krokus auf deren US-Tournee Bühnen-Outfits genäht; doch der damalige Krokus-Manager weigerte sich, sie zu bezahlen. «Diese Typen haben meine Frau abgezockt und bedroht», so Snider, dessen Mutter eine ausgewanderte Schweizerin ist. «Ich war stolz auf diese Rockband aus dem Heimatland meiner Mutter. Doch der Stolz hat sich in Wut verwandelt.» Chris von Rohr erinnert sich: «Die Kleider entsprachen nicht dem, was wir abgemacht hatten. Zu sehr Harlekin-Style. Also machten wir ein Lagerfeuer daraus.» Inzwischen seien sie älter, weiser geworden. «Falls wir seine Frau nicht mit dem nötigen Respekt behandelt haben sollten, tut es uns leid.»

Von Rohr schlägt vor, an ­einem Festival im Sommer, wo beide Bands auftreten, gemeinsam ein Versöhnungsbier zu trinken. BLICK erreichte Snider und unterbrei­tete ihm das Friedensangebot. «Wenn sie das ernst meinen, finde ich es eine schöne Geste», sagt der US-Sänger. «Aber ich muss erst meine Frau fragen, ob sie Krokus verzeihen kann.»
