KCTV, the CBS – affiliated television station serving Kansas City, Missouri and Kansas City, Kansas, spoke to TWISTED SISTER lead singer Dee Snider about the Kansas coffee shop which is being forced into changing its name from Twisted Sisters after receiving a letter from attorneys representing TWISTED SISTER guitarist and manager Jay Jay French.
“[Jay Jay is] very crazy about protecting the trademark, and he sues everybody,” Snider told KCTV.
He added: “People are going crazy because it seems like this Goliath is attacking this David, this poor little David for the TWISTED SISTERtrademark. I told JJ, I said, ‘You know, man, you’ve got to call in to some of these TV shows and some of these radio shows and defend yourself.’ Because he apparently tried to work something out with the people at that shop and their first response was, ‘Who’s TWISTED SISTER?’ They actually said they’d never heard of the band. Really? Really? That much I know. Everybody’s heard of TWISTED SISTER… For better or for worse, it’s a household word.”
