JJ French tells the entire history of the band Twisted Sister. The money, the failures and much more.
Here is a rare, inspiring deleted scene from Louder Education S2 E4 w/ Twisted Sister’s Jay Jay French & Testament’s Alex Skolnick. During the taping, Jay Jay French gave an exclusive autobiographical look into the history of his life, and band. Although I had to cut it from the episode, his hour long tale is the most compelling and inspiring story I have filmed in 10 years of Metal Injection history.
Enjoy. Frank Godla
