The tiff between Twisted Sister frontman Dee Snider and Paul Stanley might have just escalated into a full blown war, with Snider penning an irate open letter directed at the KISS legend. The drama started when Snider criticized KISS during an appearance on Eddie Trunk’s show, saying that their repetitive costumes, makeup, and stage moves —especially in the wake Ace Frehley and Peter Criss’ departures— are insulting to their fans.
Stanley did not take kindly to the insults, and fired back at the Twisted Sister on Talk Is Jericho. He accused Snider of just wanting attention, dismissing him as a “wannabe” and his band as “a bunch of buffoons.” Them’s fightin’ words, indeed.
But the war of words reached a head last night with a this note Snider posted to his Facebook page.
That’s right, he even invoked holiest of trash talk, most famously thrown down by Soviet leader Nikita Khrushchev during a particularly headed diplomatic session. It looks like the cold war between Snider and Stanley is heating up.
