Twistes Fuckin' Sister! 'Nuff said...
They are STILL kicking ass!!
They were simply the best local band of the day in my eyes. They made that night of partying an unforgettable experience! Even the nights when the fucking FDNY would shut the club down while they were still playing
for over crowding... LoL

Dee Snider
Jay Jay French
Eddie "Fingers" Ojeda
Mark "The Animal" Mendoza
A.J. Pero

Twisted Sister... This is the show that launched the second coming of the boyz! Fuckin' awesome!!
Dee Snider... Twisted Sister singer and ass kicker extrodinare
Fuckin' Dee STILL Rulz!!



The reason why they were simply the best club band to me...
I felt as tho I could conquer the world
after being apart of such amazing energy!!!

Tommy Mondello's Twisted Sister Ticket stub from Felt Forum 1987
That's my ticket stub from the M.S.G. Felt Forum show back in 1987.
It was the first show ever without make-up and I remember
that Howard Stern and the whole Stern radio crew
were sitting on the stage during the show.
I then sent the stub to Dee in 1996 and he autographed it for me!
And he actually sent it back!
Pretty neat right!

My unused Twisted Sister SMF bumper sticker
SMF O-Gram that was mailed to me while I was in the navy down in Virginia. Even though I was away from the Tri-State area at the time, had'ta keep in touch with the boyz!!

Here are a few emails I sent to Dee during the S.M.F. years
along with his replies. Yeah... he actually wrote back.
How fuckin' awesome is that!!
And yes, they were printed from my old trusty
dot matrix printer... LoL

Prophet / Edgar Cayce / Bombay
Prophet / Edgar Cayce
These guys were incredible!
Whenever we saw them play at the Fountain Casino (huge stage)
it was just like watching a headliner playing at MSG...
that's how technically tight they were!
Rush, Pink Floyd, Van Halen... every song was perfect.
It was always a special treat when these guys and some of the members
of TT Quick would join forces on the same stage. So awesome to watch
Kenny Dubman (Prophet) and Dave DiPietro (TT Quick)
both wailing away on guitar...
I remember those fucking nights like it was yesterday! Do you?

The Soft Parade
Promo pic I was given from The Soft Parade band back in 1981 at The Factory rock club just days before I shipped out for the navy.
Promo pic I was given from The Soft Parade band back in 1981 at The Factory rock club just days before I shipped out for the navy.
The fella's wrote me a nice thank you on the back and each member signed it for me!
That's a promo pic of the band that they gave me on Nov 14, 1981.
The show was at The Factory rock club in Staten Island,
our second home right after The Rock Palace.

We saw the band play almost every show they played up to that point
and they got to know us just a bit.
When they found out that I was shipping out to the navy in a day or 2
they gave me the photo, signed it and wrote that nice note to me.
They also gave me the cow bell and the last set of drum sticks
used on the last song of the night.

We hung out for a bit after the show, had some beers,
told a few war stories... they were really cool guys!

These guys are not the same Soft Parade band from the website link above.

And I'm pretty sure the shirt they're talking about
was one that I had made up that said on the front...
"Try your best"
and on the back...
"Be yourself and fuck the rest"

Back then you could do things like that.
Not like in this politically correct mess we live in nowadays... LoL
I'd probably be arrested if I walked into a club!
