Twisted Sister singer Dee Snider spoke to MotorTrend.com about "Dee Snider's Rock & Roll Christmas Tale", starring and written by the iconic rocker, directed by Adam John Hunter and produced by John B. Yonover, which will play the Broadway Playhouse at Water Tower Place (175 E Chestnut) November 4, 2014 through January 4, 2015. "It's a musical I wrote about a struggling rock and roll band who sells their souls to the devil, but find they magic of Christmas instead," Dee said. "It's alternative holiday entertainment, but it's gotten a really great response and we're finally launching it in Chicago, hopefully bringing it to Broadway in 2015. I've been working on it for five years, starting rehearsals in September and I think we start previews in October. It is pretty crazy."

Celebrity Drive: Twisted Sister's Dee Snider And His Dodge
Muscle-Car Guy Loves His Dodge Demon Challenger SRT8
Car he learned to drive in
Although he was born in Astoria, Queens, Snider learned to drive on the suburban streets of New York's Long Island, where he grew up. "My father originally tried to teach me in a 1967 Plymouth station wagon, three-speed, manual on the tree, the shifter is on the steering column, old school," he recalls. "I was the oldest of six and I was the first person he tried to teach and he always had shift cars."

‘Loudwire Nights’ host Full Metal Jackie caught up with Twisted Sister‘s Dee Snider at the Revolver Golden Gods Awards, and the two got to talking about Joan Jett, who received the Golden God award that night.
“She’s definitely deserving. She’s the real deal and she’s a friend,” says Snider of the honor. The rocker was also marveling at the idea of a possible reunion with Cherie Currie and Lita Ford, who were both in attendance to support Jett. However, an onstage reunion did not follow, as Jett performed with The Pretty Reckless‘ Taylor Momsen with a cameo from ZZ Top‘s Billy Gibbons.
Snider also recalled a humorous incident in which he had to interview himself. Check out Full Metal Jackie’s chat with Dee Snider Here.
