Eddie „Fingers” Ojeda (born August 5, 1955 in New York City, New York) is one of the two guitarists of the American heavy metal band Twisted Sister. In early 1970s he recorded a couple of singles with a band called SPX. He joined Twisted Sister in 1975. In 1989 he started the band Scarecrow (band). He also recorded a solo album named Axes To Axes in 2005 featuring Dee Snider, Ronnie James Dio and Rudy Sarzo among others. In a 2006 interview with rock & roll comic C.C. Banana, Eddie revealed if Twisted Sister ever retired that it would still be possible for the band to continue performing under their alternate name Bent Brother.
Eddie, along with other popular rock guitarists in the mid-80’s, performed in the Hear ‘n Aid project, launched by Ronnie James Dio, which had a similar goal as both Band Aid and USA for Africa.
In 2006 he is heard singing in Spanish on the Twisted Sister album „A Twisted Christmas” as well as playing drums on the album.
Eddie toured with Steve Steinman on the „Vampires Rock” tour in late 2007.
