While perhaps he is best known as the lead singer of Twisted Sister, there is so much more to Dee Snider.
Never setting limits, Dee wrote, produced and starred in Dee Snider’s StrangeLand. This horror flick has become a cult classic, literally creating the torture film sub-genre. StrangeLand 2 is currently in development. With the success of StrangeLand, Dee was tapped to host a weekly radio show on all things horror, Fangoria Radio, on the Sirius XM network.
Arnold Schwarzenegger wasn’t going to take it either. The California Governator enlisted Dee to help rally his political troops all the way to the Governor’s mansion in California. At his last political rally in Sacramento, Schwarzenegger asked Dee to lead the way in singing “We’re Not Gonna Take It” on the steps of Sacramento’s Capitol Building. California listened and the Terminator was elected Governor. Not to be outdone, the Mexican Government recruited Dee as well, using both him and the anthem in an “anti-dishonesty” campaign to gain attention on their bid to set the country on a judicial road to recovery.
His starring role on Broadway in the hit musical Rock Of Ages generated national interest and appearances. The Rock Of Ages run inspired him to make a brand new record for Razor & Tie, “Dee Does Broadway,” featuring some of the Great White Way’s biggest songs, side by side with Broadway legends like Patti LuPone and Bebe Neuwirth, in his own indomitable style.
His self-penned autobiography, Shut Up and Give Me The Mic, was released in the summer of 2012 from Gallery Books/Simon & Schuster to critical acclaim, coinciding with Warner Pictures’ release of the Tom Cruise, Alec Baldwin, Catherine Zeta Jones, Russell Brand film version of Rock Of Ages. The movie features two of Dee’s biggest hits.
