Armadillo - 2011-12-13 3:37 AM hey Jim I absolutely love these guys. I really do. I've always called y'all my Twisted Family. Each band member has such tremendous professionalism, commitment and talent--and they just plain love and value the fans. I can't tell you how many times I've seen these guys, exhausted and sleep-deprived, but still go and sign autographs or stay and chat with fans. Did you ever notice how many times, Jay Jay will single out a fan and give him or her a pick during the show? Dee once signed an autograph....right in the middle of a show for a young fan, since he knew there wouldn't be a meet and greet after..... Mark, AJ, Eddie too---all of them will stop and talk to fans, take photos etc. Dee once walked across a frozen parking lot in Poughkeepsie to talk to Brian, Cyndi and I [YES. frickin' Poughkeepsie, okay?] even though it must have been 20 below. It was the first time I met him, and I distinctly remember him saying to Danny, "Hold on, I gotta go talk to these guys...they're out here freezing for me..." After Colorado, Jay Jay sat with a whole group of fans and just chatted....and I'm sure he must have been tired...but those fans were thrilled. They'll remember that moment forever. I adore the road crew--who work tremendously hard to bring us the best sound, the best lighting, the guitars and drums tuned up--they keep the band running smoothly Their manager, Danny, completely understands the passion of fans, and has gone out of his way on more than one occasion to make the concert experience special for a few lucky and deserving folks. (I still think about those front row kids in Oulu--it was awesome!) And of course, the SMFs, my Twisted brothers and sisters. There is a bond between SMFs--- I haven't seen it with other fan bases. There are no fans in the world who are as loyal and passionate as SMFs. It just never gets tired for me...... I love hanging out with seeing the chillin' with the crew....and love basking in the glow of greatness--to experience a Twisted Sister show, is to be in the presence of heavy metal royalty.[/QUOTE]

Couldn't agree more Terry, having experienced how Danny and the guys look after the fans (and in my case the whole family) and just how special they make you feel as an SMF. I have also met a number of other slamboard  SMF's from all over the world (in a few different countries too!!) and have loved every minute of it.

What I love about this band is that a concert isn't just a bunch of guys on stage, pelting out the songs (although they do that per excellence) ............ it's the "experience" you talked about above. Experience with a capital "E" -  the planning, the travel, the meeting of old and new Twisted friends, the introducing of 'newbies' to the whole thing. All that is distilled into the 'Experience' and every time I hear "It's A Long Way ..." whether it’s on the iPod, the radio, in the car, wherever - I get the same rush I get when the lights dim and it blasts out at the start of the show. 

Looking forward to many more experiences too
