Doug Aldrich, Dee Snider, and "Importance"
3/19/2015 2:56:17 PM by Frank Hill

At this point we have probably all digested Twisted Sister frontman Dee Snider's ridiculous comment regarding Doug Aldrich (Whitesnake, Dio, Burning Rain). If you missed it, the instigator is this remarkably insensitive tweet posted on February 9th by Snider (who later apologized to Aldrich):

"What Whitesnake album of importance did Douglas Aldrich play on?"

I have a number of issues with this short little question but first and foremost…what is Snider's definition of important? The albums that only charted hits? The albums that hang in platinum glory on a downstairs wall? Snider seems to be referencing the importance (and arrogance) of hits and money...
