The conclusion of my discussion with Twisted Sister founder and guitarist John 'Jay Jay' French airs this week, and what a discussion it was. His playlist is centred around John's summer spent in London in 1972 and the music he experienced there, but the span of our discussion is limitless.
We talk about motivational speaking, the similarities of our top five records, continued reinvention, the one question he would ask The Beatles, riding a stolen motorcycle on Broadway in New York in the 60s, his perspectives on previous Twisted Sister members who abused alcohol, the details behind each of the six beers he's ever had over the course of his life, and how The Rolling Stones and his other records got him through the day. He's also a stickler for music trivia, and he tests my knowledge on the British Invasion (spoiler alert - I fail).
French's playlist (Part II):
Curtis Mayfield - Move On Up
Curtis Mayfield - Super Fly
The Temptations - Papa Was A Rolling Stone
