In the 1990s, Dee Snider formed Widowmaker with Joe Franco, a good friend to Twisted Sister and drummer on the album Love Is for Suckers, as well as Al Pitrelli and Marc Russel. The quartet recorded two albums with limited underground success, titled Blood and Bullets and Stand By For Pain. In the late 1990s, Snider toured with a "self-tribute" band called Dee Snider's SMFs (Sick Mother Fuckers), sometimes featuring ex-Twisted Sister drummer A.J. Pero. The usual line up included Dee Snider, Derek Tailer, Charlie Mills, Keith Alexander, and Spike.
In 1991. Dee fights back by forming his most brutal band yet, Widowmaker. Along with Desperado bassist Mark Russel, Dee enlisted the sonic battle-skills of guitar maestro Al Pitrelli (formerly with Alice Cooper) and drummer Joey Franco (who played on Twisted's last album).
With mainstream gone "alternative," Widowmaker has kept to the independent route to avoid being forced to compromise their artistic vision. Even with poor distribution and virtually no promotion or air-play, they've still forged out a dedicated fan-base of modern rockers.
