In the new, APMAs-exclusive issue of AltPress, Pierce The Veil frontman Vic Fuentes speaks with Senior Editor Ryan J. Downey on an interesting conversation he had with Twisted Sister's Dee Snider. “He's like, 'Damn man, have you got any balls at all? That's crazy!' [Laughs.] He was just fucking with me.”
You can check out a full excerpt from the interview below. Read the entire piece in AP 325, which is on sale now.
I came across a ‘Vic’s voice is too damn high!’ meme. But the internet is full of comments like, ‘His voice is like a drug!’ or ‘He sounds like an angel!’
As far as the ridicule goes, I’ve gone through so much of it over the years, I kinda just do my thing and hope for personal satisfaction on it now, you know what I mean? I get it. I ridicule myself for the way that I used to sound. It’s hard for me to listen to older stuff sometimes because you always want your best foot forward. I met [Twisted Sister frontman] Dee Snider. His daughter is a fan. He’s like, ’Damn man, have you got any balls at all? That's crazy!' [Laughs.] He was just fucking with me. He was like, ‘Back in the day, I was the guy getting made fun of for singing higher.’ He was giving me a solid, like, “Keep it up!” It was fun to have Dee Snider talk shit on me in a loving way.
