Jay Jay French managed Twisted Sister for 42 of 48 years and all will be revealed in his forthcoming book
Twisted Sister guitarist and founder Jay Jay French was recently interviewed by Andrew Daly for Metal Castle. French discussed what he has been up to since Twisted Sister disbanded in 2016.
In terms of what he has had recently on tap, French stated: “Unlike most people, my wife and I traveled a lot this past summer. We spent two weeks on the road to California, three weeks to Colorado, one week upstate NY, and weeks to the U.K. We flew business class everywhere, which is super safe as there was no one at the airports or on the planes. This was when COVID was still a significant concern, of course, so we wore masks all the time, washed our hands, and didn’t touch anyone.”
French was asked his book Twisted Business and his podcast The French Connection to which he indicated:
“In addition to the traveling, I used this time to finish my book Twisted Business, which came out this past year. And I also moved to set up my new Podcast, The French Connection, which is available now on Spotify, Podcast One, and Apple Music. I got into playing guitar at the age of 10. I fell in love with the blues in 1966 through The Paul Butterfield Blues band, Albert King and John Mayall/Eric Clapton Blues Breakers. And though I’ve loved the guitar and rock music for my entire life, as I’ve gone on, business and other interests have come to the forefront. Every business lesson I’ve learned was on the job. I managed Twisted Sister for 42 of the 48 years of our existence. All will be revealed in my forthcoming book Twisted Business: We’re Not Gonna Take It! Twisted Business is both a business book and a memoir. I call it a Biz-moir. [Laughs]. It’s the story of my life, how Twisted Sister was created and maintains relevancy in this ever-changing world. There are life lessons that apply to everyone and all businesses.”
