EPISODE #683 TWISTED SISTER: LIFE AND TIMES

Richard speaks with a guitarist, founder, and manager of a world-famous heavy metal band about growing up in New York City in the sixties, working as a drug dealer and struggling as an addict before quitting cold-turkey, and finally, creating and cultivating Twisted Sister and turning it into one of the most successful brands in the world.

Guest: Jay Jay French founded Twisted Sister, the internationally renowned heavy metal band, nearly fifty years ago. Since then, he has catapulted his career to become one of the most successful managers, producers, and entrepreneurs in the music business. French has amassed thirty-nine gold and platinum albums as a musician, manager, producer, and executive producer, and has performed over 9,000 shows in forty countries, selling 20 million records around the world. A charter member of the Long Island Music Hall of Fame, he is considered a leading expert on vintage guitars and high-end music equipment.
