20 Questions With Eddie Ojeda, 9/5/00



Twisted Sister Guitarist Eddie Ojeda

We were going to take the week off and not put up 20 Questions, and in a way we are.  A lot of you have been asking when we were going to put up this interview. Hell, we got this thing sent back to us on October 30, 1999!  But it sucks so much we just couldn’t put it up.  This is by far the worst 20 Questions we have ever gotten back.   Think of the lamest 20 Questions you have read…now say the name out loud.  Well this is way worse than that.  Our questions were good, but Eddie is about as lame as they come.  This is a lesson on how NOT to do 20 Questions.   

1.  What are you currently up to?  This is your only chance to plug your shit! 
Selling used wheelchairs to poor old ladies that should get them for free. 

2.  Dee was credited with all the songwriting during his 11 years with ‘sister. Was this because the rest of the band had no songwriting skills, or because Dee wouldn’t allow anyone?s ideas to be presented. 
The rain in Spain falls mainly on the plain. 

3.  What hard rock/heavy metal band should give it up and call it a day? 
The Seamen. (Their coming to town.) 

4.  Did Dee keep all the publishing money? 
He bought a Burger King with it and we can all eat there for free whenever we want. 

5.  Recently we spotted a custom Kramer guitar for sale on Ebay that was allegedly once yours (it had your trademark pink bulls eye paint job, so we believe it was once yours). Did you sell it because: 
A. You needed the money for crack 
B. You wanted to donate money to a local charity 
C. You needed money to go to a Bruce Kulick guitar clinic 
D. You needed money to pay the rent 
B. You wanted to donate money to a local charity (Wheelchairs-R-Us) 

6.  Is Twisted really going to do a reunion, or is it just hype to sell the re-issues of the ‘Twisted catalog that comes out in a few weeks? 
I hope not, I looking forward to doing a reunion. 

7.  For $25,000, non taxable cash:  Would you go to a restaurant, have a great meal with great service, and then call management over and file a totally fabricated complaint about how horrible the service was.  The waiter/waitress then gets fired on the spot.  Would you do it? 
No IM not into eating out. 

8.  About 2 years ago, you did one gig with Sebastian Bach on vocals, Rudy Sarzo on bass, Nicko McBrain on drums, and it was called Doom.  Our question is, what percent of the time was Sebastian singing in key and was he a pain in the ass to work with? 
Sometimes you fell like a nut some times you don’t. 

9.  Did you ever see J.J. without his wig on? 
Is that a wig? 

10.  Rate the following guitarists on a scale of 1 to 10.  1 being a wreck, and 10 being a virtuoso. 
Tracii Guns =
Warren DeMartini = 
Ace Frehley =
C.C. DeVille =
Mick Mars =
Eddie Van Halen =
Joe Perry =
Zakk Wylde =
Bruce Kulick =
J.J. French =
Ask somebody who gives a shit. 

11.  When Dee formed Desperado after ‘Sister, he said in the press that he wanted a "Guitar Hero" type band, which basically implied that you and J.J. sucked. How did that make you feel? 
Ask somebody who gives a shit II (The sequel). 

12.  What is the worst day job that you’ve had since the demise of ‘Sister? 
Making Coney Island white fish sandwiches at the Slut Diner. 

13.  What rock star deserves a smack in the mouth, and why? 
Ask somebody who gives a shit III (The Movie). 

14.  Did you and the other guys party on the road, or were you all supposed saints (no drink or drugs) like Dee?
Just beer or some drinks once in a while.

15.  Before Twisted’s success, did you ever contemplate quitting the band and getting a REAL job?
Of course not.

16.  When Twisted was big J.J. released a guitar instruction video. Did you also release one, or wouldn’t J.J. let you for fear that the fans would realize that you were a much better player than him?
Ask somebody who gives a shit IIII (The Series).

17.  Did you ever think that some of Dee’s songs sucked, and if so did you have the nuts to tell him?
What do you think?

18.  Who?s the most overrated band out right now?
The Fagots (who knows).

19.  You wore a lot less make up than the other guys, was this because you wanted to be considered a "serious" musician, or because you didn’t have the desire to look like a cheap transvestite hooker?
A little bit of both.

20.  Time for Metal Sludge’s Word Association.  We mention a name, and you give us your thoughts.
Dee Snider =
Howard Stern =
Vince Neil =
Jay Jay French =
Warrant =
Limp Bizkit =
Stephen Pearcy =
Dana Strum =
Paul Stanley =
Sevendust =
Working People.

Later Eddie O.  

See, we told you it sucked! 

How fucking lame!  No wonder Dee is in no hurry to have a Twisted Sister reunion.  With guys like this in your band, what’s the point?  Ho put zero effort into this because he’s a lazy fuck.  What was the purpose of even sending them back?  Fuck, he even skipped out on Word Association.  How hard is it to come up with something for each person?  Nobody said he had to talk shit, he just had to use his fucking brain and think.  He could have complimented everyone, but instead he just backs out.  After reading that 20 Questions the only thing people know now that they didn’t before is that Eddie has no creativity and is lazy.  He doesn’t have a website to plug, and if he didn’t we wouldn’t plug it anyways.

Come back next week when we will go back to having normal 20 Questions from people who put some thought and effort into it.
