5-22-09 Update

Well my brother Jay has been home a few days now and is doing well. There's still a long recovery ahead yet but I know he'll be back to himself soon enough.

I am trying to figure out how to keep his radio show, The Scorpion's Lair, going but right now its going to be rough cause scheduling things for myself and the TSL Crew is a little crazy. I'll be trying to figure it out soon.

You guys can listen to my friends at Official FN Radio in the meantime because they totally rock.

I also have a good friend beginning to put together an internet radio station that will be just rock and metal. I'll be reaching out soon to my band friends as he wants as much Indie rock and metal we can get. As soon as it's up and getting close to running you'll hear about it here.

I've had a lot of things on my mind lately and am going to try to put them in writing and share them with you, including a few album reviews I've been meaning to write.

Lastly, Turbo Promotions STILL EXISTS. Just note that I have a lot going on right now so please tell me about bands that you think I should promote, keep me updated on upcoming shows so I can promote them for you and feel free to message me here on Myspace or e-mail me at with anything you'd like me to promote for you.

And I'm on twitter now as well...follow me at Turbo Promotions on Twitter for updates and anything else I feel like tweeting about. I'll be more active on it once I can get out to upgrade my phone.

Twisted Sister wants you HUNGRY AGAIN


Rhino Remasters 1984 Top 20 Smash Album With A Bonus Disc Of
Unreleased Studio Recordings, Plus A New Track By The Original Lineup
For 25TH Anniversary Edition

Limited Edition Pink Vinyl Package Accompanies CD and Digital Release

Available From Rhino June 30

LOS ANGELES – After rocking clubs from Los Angeles to New York City for more than a decade, Twisted Sister made its bones in 1984 with the quintet’s second Atlantic Records release, a Top 20 album that stormed the charts with a string of hit singles and genre-bending videos. Rhino proudly wears a Twisted Sister pin on its uniform, celebrating the album’s multi-platinum success with a 25th Anniversary Edition that includes a bonus disc of unreleased outtakes and early demos from the original sessions, as well as a new track recorded especially for this collection by the 1984 lineup: Dee Snider, Jay Jay French, Eddie Ojeda, Mark Mendoza, and A.J. Pero. STAY HUNGRY 25th Anniversary Edition will be available June 30 from Rhino Records at all retail outlets, including

A limited edition pink vinyl package with the original “Stay Hungry” album art and bonus poster will also be released this summer.

The first disc contains remastered versions of the nine tracks from the May 1984 original. The album was a smash thanks to a pair of fist-pumping anthems of youthful rebellion—“I Wanna Rock” and “We’re Not Gonna Take It”—that went Top 40. The band balanced those catchy songs with the harder edge of metal classics like “Burn In Hell” and “Horror-Teria,” a macabre song that would later serve as the inspiration for Strangeland, a 1998 horror film written by Snider, who also starred as the sadistic Captain Howdy.

The bonus disc uncovers 15 unreleased recordings that range from alternate versions of album tracks—including “We’re Not Gonna Take It”—to several non-album tracks such as “Death From Above,” “Prime Motivator,” and “Pay The Price,” a song from the band’s earlier club days. Along with the vintage tracks, the collection includes “30,” Twisted’s first new song in 11 years recorded by the band for the 25th Anniversary Edition.

“30” was originally written by Dee Snider with Marc Beeman and Shannon Lawson for the reality series Gone Country. Dee says, “While ‘30’ was my attempt at a country song for the show, the realization was that rock ’n’ roll is a direct outgrowth of country music. Since ‘30’ was written about my Twisted Sister experience, it seemed only natural for us to record it and rock it out.”

More than a decade after Twisted Sister’s last show, the band reformed in 2001 for a benefit and continued playing together, including an astonishing run of over 50 headline festival dates performing in front of two million people in over 23 countries. In 2006, the band returned to the charts with Twisted Christmas, a holiday album that buzzsaws through yuletide classics such as, “Oh Come All Ye Faithful” and “Silver Bells.” That same year, the Long Island Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inducted Twisted Sister. The band is currently at work on a new album and a Broadway musical based on Twisted Christmas. Twisted Sister will headline the annual Rocklahoma music festival July 9-12 in Pryor, Oklahoma. Rock of Ages, Broadway’s latest musical hit with five Tony® nominations, features Twisted Sister prominently in its story line and with the band’s aforementioned iconic anthems, “I Wanna Rock and “We’re Not Gonna Take It.”

Update 5-09-09

My brother Jay Scorpion is doing well, he was moved from the respiratory unit to a regular room. A big step in the right direction. Thanks all for your support.

Unfortunately we weren't able to work out the scheduling issues we had this week, there will be no show this week.

We are going to try and work out scheduling issues for next week. Just keep your eyes open for updates.

Update 5-07-09

My brother Jay Scorpion is doing well. He is still in the hospital but we are hoping to have him back home within a week.

TSL is still alive and kicking ass but we are having some scheduling issues right now with Mother's Day this weekend and some possible conflicting plans next weekend. We are trying to work around this and will let you all know whether or not we will be on.

I'm going to try and catch up with some reviews that I've been meaning to write as time allows. Things are still a bit crazy as far as doing things but it should be possible to juggle my own things while still keeping my brother's radio show going strong.

Thank you all for your support. Our first ever benefit last night was great. A big thanks to The Trash Bar for allowing us to do the event there and a HUGE thanks to all the bands.

We are in discussions of doing some more ROCK AGAINST DYSTROPHY events so keep your eyes and ears open. As soon as details are worked out we’ll let everyone know.

There will be no TSL tonight since we are all recovering from last nights benefit, so The Scorpion's Lair will see all you rockers and metalheads next Sunday from 7-10pm on
