I understand it the time was bad for the band and lots of fighting was going on, but I'm sure they have to realize a large majority of the fans love this record and so I ask why not play some songs from this record before you finally stop playing.

I've read JJ's interview with Cyndi where he says it's getting harder to get Dee to agree to gigs so do the fans who love this record a solid and crank up a few tunes from the cd.

The whole AJ didn't play on it really doesn't make sense to me espiecially since AJ played Wake Up The Sleeping Giant when he played in Dee's SMF band when I saw them...so I don't think he'd mind learning them.
Even Peter & Ace played non makeup Kiss songs on thier Farewell Tour....just my Twisted opinion =)

I can't say why they never play LIFS songs, but I can say that I love that album and would love to hear these songs live.

My understanding of not playing anything from LIFS is because the original 5 were NOT together when that album came out. Now that the band is re-united, the original 5 are playing stuff from their albums.

Truthfully, I'd love to hear some songs live from the LIFS as some of them are great. The 2 most requested songs on my list from LIFS are Wake Up The Sleeping Giant and One Bad Habit.

Peace All

ok fair enough but again I say Ace & Peter played material they weren't on either.....
bands play material all the time that all band members didn't play on

bottom line is who cares who played on the studio record it's under the Twisted Sister banner and that is what matters
Plus if the fans want to hear this material my question is who would it kill to play a few tunes.....if they tank then drop them from the set....at least you tried it

OK Since the cats out of the bag I may as well tell you the other half. A very special guest star will be joining the boyz on stage for jailhouse rock - his name ELVIS.

sorry to disagree but i think it is the weakest album by a long way,only the title track and hot love come anywhere near the ts standard.
i would much rather they played ingun and material from club days than lifs.

I'd have to pretty much agree. The album needs to be sisterized. Kinda sterile compared to the other albums.

I think COAP is the weakest album, but I will give you one thing, LIFS is not even close to UTB, YCSRNR, and Stay Hungry.

I love LIFS and actually believe it is one of the best TS albums and moreover, that ended up being the best of the re-issues, as it had 4 awesome basically brand new songs that were not available anywhere else.

In my opinion COAP is by far the weakest one, although I love some of the tracks, overall I listen to that one the least. I personally think LIFS, fits much more into the Twisted collection than COAP, which was a much further departure, imo. COAP almost seems like a forced album, where TS was trying to copy their own sound, while with LIFS Dee was basically not trying to fit his songs into any mold and therefore it is a natural evolution of the music. Regardless of who played what on the album, its a TS album and definitely some songs should be included in this summers set list, if at all possible. If I had a choice I'd love to hear Me and the Boys. That's an awesome tune!

One more agreement here, it's the weakest Twisted Sister album, or "Twisted Sister album" ever and certainly my least favourite. Few decent songs though; Wake Up The Sleeping Giant, Hot Love and the title song. And now, COAP IS A GREAT ALBUM!
By the way Reb Beach (currently in Whitesnake) wrote the songs with Dee and played most of the guitars on 'Love Is For Suckers' album.

and If That's What You Want, I love that song. (But I'm not going to be able to see them this year so I don't know why I'm begging them to play LIFS)

I also think it's definitely not as good as the other TS albums, but it was cool to hear the bonus tracks on a re-release. Those songs are not too bad.

I recall hearing that LIFS was originally supposed to be Dee's solo album that was pushed into being a TS album.

I like some of the material on it, but I must agree that UTB and CSRR are much more TS to me. I even prefer some of the B side material to LIFS-- guilty as charged, but I really like "Four Barrel Heart of Love" and love "Plastic Money"

Even the look of the album cover kinda came at me sideways...it just didn't say "Twisted Sister" to me. OH I still listen to it--definitely some good tracks on it, and I think they played "I believe in rpcl amd roll" at the 6-flags show, didn't they? can't remember. the setlists are starting to blur together.

the only album I bought but just can't bring myself to listen to is the tribute album--I didn't really care for the some of the "artistic interpretations" of TS songs....except for Joan Jett, who can do no wrong.

I think this album both was written and recorded as a solo album before they forced it to be a TS album. Ronni Le Tekro played some of the guitar on the demos, and Reb Beach played on the recording.

My favourite album is COAP. But I realy like some songs from LIFS also. Wake Up, Me And The Boys, One Bad Habbit are great tunes. And I will love to hear some of them live in London and Notthingham.

Another song I want to hear, is Like a knife in the back. My favortite TS Song, and it realy kick ass live.

I can see that opinions vary, and that's ok. For me the Joan Jett's version is about the lamest thing on that tribute album.

Just what I think. Joan Jett's version of We're Not Gonna Take It reminds me of the Muppet Show! ha ha ha

I would love to hear hot love or LIFS live. My favourite track on the tribute album was shoot em down by motorhead.
