Twisted Sister rocker JAY JAY FRENCH has vowed never to tour with the group again - because he's convinced he will "lose money" if they hit the road.
The We're Not Gonna Take It hitmakers are bombarded with offers to schedule a tour, but guitarist French insists the group is worth more if they only agree to play one-off concerts.
French tells, "It will never ever happen. I would just assume things would maybe happen, but we will never tour (again). I look at the mathematics of it every year, the mathematics makes no sense. None. Every year people ask me, every year I revisit the math. Every year it completely makes no sense to tour. It's just an incredibly money-losing proposition. I don't like losing money.
"I know what these (other) bands make, I know their lifestyle, I know what they do. I can't function that way. I don't believe it's viable for them. I believe they (tour) because they really have no other options on this planet. And by going out on the road constantly, they devalue themselves because they're out there all the time.
"We work in a completely separate business model. If I don't play, guess what? My value increases, doesn't it? So the less I play, the more valuable I become. So I work completely opposite. I'll bet you I make more money playing 12 shows than most (other) bands make playing 50 shows."
