[ laughter ] waiting for it to be done. but i went to like -- >> jimmy: just stand there and be like -- nope. >> after three months on the road with twisted, they that we were kinda -- instead counting into songs. one, two, three, four. they went five, six, seven, eight! [ laughter ] i didn't know when to come in. >> jimmy: burning you -- yeah. i mean, that must be, cause i -- i've seen your reality show. i've seen you on t.v. with your family. >> "growing up twisted." >> jimmy: yeah, i mean your kids seem like cool kids. like normal kids. >> as far as you can tell so far, yeah. [ laughter ] you know, i -- they -- >> jimmy: but i mean they must be going a little crazy like when they see like old pictures of you come up in the family album. >> like oh, yeah, here we go -- yeah. yes. [ cheers ] >> jimmy: there's dad right there. [ cheers and applause ] >> hi, kids. it's your dad. >> jimmy: yeah -- look at that. >> i -- i actually am stunned that my kids think i'm cool they think what i did was cool. they're proud of me, but there have been moments. a number of years ago the rock and roll hall of fame did a heavy metal display and they
wanted to display that costume -- the -- and stay hungry outfit. i was going through my old costumes and in the early days of the band i used to wear women's clothing. because we couldn't afford anything. so, you'd go down to the big and tall women's shop and get something -- ooh, gross, you know. wear that. and so as i'm going through the box, my kids were watching as we get down to the lingerie and the stockings. my 8 year old, then eight year old son, cody goes, "dad, did you used to be a transsexual?" [ laughter ] and with great pride, i turned to him and said, "son, i was a transvestite. [ laughter ] if i were a transsexual, you wouldn't be here." [ laughter ] >> jimmy: give him a little homework. yeah, yeah, yeah. >> like i said, the scars are yet to show. >> jimmy: but -- and twisted sister, wasn't -- the band had the name when you joined, right? >> yeah. i joined the band. they were an existing band and they wanted to change the name twisted sister and i said, "no way. that name is money." and the name actually came from the original singer, i'll give him some props, michael valentine. he was drunk.
and he called my guitar player j.j. french and woke him up in the middle of the night and said -- [ with drunk voice ] "i got the perfect name for the band. it's twisted sister." it was just a real drunk stammer, you think about it. a lot of -- >> jimmy: yeah, it's hard to say when you get -- [ slurring ] >> jimmy: you're eating twizzlers? >> yeah, what'd you say? sizzly wizzlers? [ laughter ] no, twisted -- >> jimmy: sizzly wizzlers. >> we could have been the sizzly wizzlers. [ laughter ] for god's sake. >> jimmy: that would be fantastic. >> unfortunately, j.j. remembered, and and michael didn't and the name stuck, so. >> jimmy: what is the metal horn thing? what's going on? >> oh, take backthehorns.com. >> jimmy: takebackthehorns.com >> yeah, i started a website because there is a severe overuse of the metal horns. i'm seeing them thrown -- i saw a guy on the express line at an grocery store successfully check out eight items or less and he goes, yeah! [ laughter ] >> jimmy: oh, my god. >> that's not metal horns worthy. little johnny comes out of the bathroom at the airport, and he zips fly and he goes to mom and he smiles and mom goes, yeah! [ laughter ]
>> jimmy: no. >> little johnny made number two on his own is not metal horns worthy. so i started the website takebackthehorns.com to reclaim the metal horns. >> jimmy: to make people aware to it's proper use. >> yeah, proper use and claim it back. the rightful owners of the metal community. >> jimmy: like seeing twisted sister. >> if you're with me now, you can throw the horns. if within to the presence of an actual heavy metal guy. you're at a metal show, yes. you're at a john mayer show, no. [ laughter ] [ applause ] >> jimmy: undertood. [ applause ] understood. [ cheers and applause ] >> i got to be -- >> jimmy: i want to show you a guitar that i had made for me. [ laughter ] >> don't even show me. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: what is he doing? >> i fired a shot across adam's bowel over there. i just -- >> adam: you a son of a bitch. [ laughter ] i was -- that's so funny, because -- wow. you, actually -- you're going to feel bad now.
you were the first person i heard that these guys in summer camp wanted me to sing a song, and they said, "do you know 'do you want to rock' by twisted sister?" and i was like, "no i don't." and i was 11 -- i was 11 years old, i'll never forget this, this was one of the first things that made me realize that i could be in a band and came and i sang the [ bleep ]out of it. sorry. [ laughter ] i'm not allowed to say the "s" word? >> jimmy: saying slower doesn't help you. [ laughter and applause ] that's the longest bleep we've ever had in our show ever. >> i sang the crud out of it. and actually they all looked at me astonished and were like, "wow, that was amazing." >> oh, dude, it's gotten -- upper range, which i love as a tenor. tenor power brother. so, i was just -- i was just busting your chops. >> adam: oh, of course. >> you're a great singer, dude. >> jimmy: oh, he's amazing. >> adam: as are you. >> jimmy: we love adam levine. [ cheers and applause ] we -- [ cheers and applause ] he's been doing it all night. i have a guitar. dean guitar came up to me and the guys from dean guitars, they go, "we'd love to make you a guitar." and i'm like, "okay." and then he goes, "just look at my website and look at our guitars." and i go, "it's too heavy for me. have you ever seen my act?" i mean, there's no way i can play any of these. >> yeah, yeah, yeah. >> jimmy: but they said, "all right." if you want to do it -- i want you to make me a guitar. okay. i just dreamt up a guitar. i said, i want it to be called
the "gathedral" [ laughter ] and i want to have stained glass. >> the gathedral. >> jimmy: yeah. >> okay, yeah. >> jimmy: so, that might not be metal. but that's where i need your help. >> that's not -- it's metal. it's a dime bag darrell guitar. >> well, that -- that's metal. >> jimmy: so, yeah, look at this. look at this dude. [ cheers and applause ] >> that's pretty metal. >> jimmy: one of a kind. [ applause ] >> yeah. >> jimmy: all right -- >> that's b.a. >> jimmy: but it -- here's the coolest part, here. >> i think they should use that in "rock of ages," actually. >> jimmy: really? >> break that out and -- yeah. >> jimmy: they can borrow this. >> yeah, one of a kind. >> jimmy: can we turn the lights down a little bit? watch this. bang. [ audience ohs ] there you go. [ cheers and applause ] >> whoa. >> jimmy: that's what i'm talking about. >> whoa. >> jimmy: yeah. [ applause ] let's do it. i know -- you can turn the lights back on. thank you. [ laughter ] it's on the clapping system. so every time people clap and the lights go out. i was wondering if we could rock out? i know twisted has a cool christmas album. >> yeah, "a twisted christmas." it's actually a hit record. you might wanna think about that, maroon 5.
[ laughter ] christmas! [ laughter ] people -- no, i'm telling you, dude. [ laughter ] people love christmas. >> jimmy: can we jam out a little? >> yeah, can i just say that i'm only in "rock of ages" 'til the 23rd of december. so, if you're gonna be coming to new york, come to the show. >> jimmy: you can't say that. >> otherwise, just check it out. they got a touring cast in columbus, ohio. it's great. come to see the show. >> jimmy: perfect. let's go, brother. >> let's do it.
