Twisted Sister founder and guitarist Jay Jay French joins me in episode 23 to discuss Sister, his slew of new and intriguing projects, and of course, his playlist.

Jay Jay and I talk about my first ever concert (Twisted Sister opening for Iron Maiden) and his frigid trek across Canada in December 1984, how his guitars (like his wife's shoes) seem to copulate overnight, how Johnny Cash approached him for his autograph in Toronto, why 1967 was such an important year in music, and what it was like to audition for KISS in 1972 before Ace Frehley joined the band.

All this and a chat about his unusual obsession with The Beatles too!


French's playlist:

Chuck Berry - School Days

The Beatles - I Want To Hold Your Hand

Bob Dylan - Don't Think Twice It's Alright

Paul Butterfield Blues Band - Born in Chicago

Albert King - Crosscut Saw

Pink Floyd - See Emily Play

David Bowie - Five Years
