Doug Aldrich and Dee Snider are in the middle of an online beef after the Twisted Sister frontman questioned the guitarist's credentials in Whitesnake. Aldrich responded by calling Snider a "total jackass."

Seems Snider is annoyed with later-period band additions who lay claim to a classic group's legacy. "What Whitesnake album of importance did @DouglasAldrich play on?" Snider asked.

Aldrich, a member of Whitesnake well after their '80s heyday, came to his own defense. "Dude, I just did my best to keep the band moving forward," he replied, adding that he "was blessed to compose 30 tunes."

2002-14 tenure with Whitesnake included the studio albums 'Good to Be Bad' (2008) and 'Forevermore' (2011), as well as a string of live releases like 2013's 'Made in Japan.' He's
since co-founded Revolution Saints, with
Jack Blades and Deen Castronovo. Snider, meanwhile, is 
contemplating a new solo record.
