Twisted Sister’s Jay Jay French says he wouldn’t rule out a comeback after their farewell tour.

The band are currently on the road on their Forty And Fuck It final tour.

He tells Mitch Lafon: “I’ve lived long enough to say ‘never say never,’ because when we walked away the first time, we walked away for a long time, and we can’t, obviously, walk away for 14 years again.

“But I’m effectively looking at it as, it’s time to turn the page and move on to something else.”

He adds: “I question my own legacy in the world. Is Jay Jay French gonna be known as the guy who stands on stage, runs around on stage, sings We’re Not Gonna Take It and plays guitar and may inspire this guy and that guy to play guitar.

“Is that my legacy? And I don’t believe that is. I don’t believe that that’s the final legacy I wanna leave on this earth. I don’t know if the totality of what I am is that.”

Twisted Sister’s veteran roadie Terry Sapp recently slammed Canada’s Amnesia Rockfest as “the worst festival ever.”
