    So, so sad. Twisted Sister drummer A.J. Pero has died of an apparent heart attack. He was just 55 and on tour with prog rock band Adrenaline Mob when it happened.

    So sad. That is such a young age. Our thoughts go out to his family, friends and fans.

    The band called paramedics when they were unable to rouse Pero from his sleep on the tour bus on Friday, March 20.

    He was admitted to a hospital in Poughkeepsie, New York, where he eventually died.
