Three Sides of the Coin’s Mark Cicchini goes one on one with Jay Jay French from Twisted Sister at Spooky Empire in Orlando, FL. Jay Jay is very open and honest in this interview, actually making some shocking statements, such as… Now look at what you’ve got with (Judas) Priest. K.K.’s gone, he runs a golf company, and now Glenn’s left, and it’s wonderful, and now it’s a cover band.”

Jay Jay goes on to talk about some of the classic rock bands touring today, “Well (Judas) Priest is 65 years old… 70 years old. Saxon’s 80 fucking years old. The Rolling Stones are 90 years old. I mean Stones fans are so old the old clobs are afraid the lights will go on in the room. 

“Watching Keith and Woody trying to play guitar is like being driven in a tour bus by José Feliciano and Ray Charles without a GPS. It’s a terrifying fucking experience. If the Stones were smart they’d hire two 25 year old guys from Nashville who know how to play the songs parts than let these two cadavers walking around stage fucking acting like Johnny Depp in fucking Pirates Of The Caribbean. And it bothers me that they charge eighty-two hundred dollars. At least when you go to see The Eagles there’s 45 guys on stage. ”
