It is with a heavy heart that we announce the sudden passing of a long time dedicated & beloved member of the Twisted Sister family, our soundman/recording engineer George Marshall (b.2/5/1963) age 59, who died in sleep last night in his home in Las Vegas.
When the time came to record our Christmas album in 2006, we met George who owned a recording studio called Audio Magick in West Babylon, NY.
George became an assistant engineer on that album and then became our live sound engineer.
We traveled the world with him from 2006 to 2016 when we retired from live performing.
George was our live sound engineer for over 100 of the worlds biggest metal festivals during this time.
The “Audio Magic” of George Marshall was that he was able, along with the rest of our amazing stage crew, to get the sound right within seconds of the first song played by us in front of upwards of 100,000 fans.
George was always cool and was also one of the nicest people in the world.
Most recently George was handling the touring schedule of Lita Ford.
George leaves behind his wife Athena and his daughter Marie.
Our thoughts are with his family.

Twisted Sister Statement Regarding the CoronaVirus
Even though Twisted Sister retired from live performing in 2016, we remain connected to our worldwide fanbase and hope that all of our fans get through this very difficult time.
The Corona Virus is affecting the whole world and the members of Twisted Sister are not immune from its effects in some form.
While none of the band members and their immediate family has had it, we are all taking actions, as everyone should, to minimize the risk.
Washing hands, wearing facemasks when we go out and limiting human to human contact (as much as is reasonable) are immediate actions we all need to take at this time.
A member of our road crew had the virus but has successfully come through it.
Several band members have also lost friends directly to the virus.
All of our friends in the music business are out of work on the touring side
and we feel for all of them. There is no corner of the health and working world that this disease has not totally transformed into a world in which we never thought we would see in our lifetimes.
We want to thank all first responders, healthcare, police and firefighters on the frontlines of this disease as well as all the workers who have to work in factories, restaurants and delivery services during this time.
We will, if necessary, update all of our fans when we have something important to add to this conversation.
Until then please be safe and take all precautions to keep you and your families safe during this monumentally historic time in human history!
Jay Jay, Dee, Eddie & Mark
