TWISTED SISTER singer Dee Snider says that the band’s drummer, A.J. Pero, was irresponsible.
“People ask me how I feel about A.J.’s passing, and, quite honestly, I’m going through a real period of anger right now about it,” Snider told. “He was a great guy, and I loved him dearly. But he had a history of heart disease — his family did; his father died in his early 60s of heart disease — and A.J. never had himself checked out. And when they did the autopsy, he had 95 percent blockage, advanced heart disease. And he didn’t have to die. And I feel it’s, basically, irresponsible behavior on his part. He had two ex-wives and an ex-girlfriend of 19 years, four kids he left behind. And you have a responsibility, as a parent, as an adult, to get yourself checked out.’
