Dee Snider gained fame as the lead singer of the heavy metal group, Twisted Sister. After 40 on-and-off years together, Twisted Sister officially called it quits in April 2015, but they’re still planning a final farewell tour in 2016 to commemorate the band’s forty years in the music biz. In the meantime, the flamboyant frontman is hitting the stage again, but this time in a festive musical he created and stars in, called Dee Snider’s Rock & Roll Christmas Tale, in Toronto, Nov. 17, 2015 to Jan. 3, 2016. On stage, Snider doesn’t shy away from the spotlight. And on the road, neither do his wheels. He drives a one-of-a-kind Plum Crazy 2014 Dodge Demon Challenger SRT8 or a 2005 Hummer H2.
Early on in Donald Trump’s campaign, the presidential candidate was using Twisted Sister‘s “We’re Not Gonna Take It” as a theme song at his rallies, and while Snider didn’t initially complain like other bands had done when Trump used their music, he did eventually ask for it to be pulled.
The Rock Hall has a brand new exhibit called 'Louder Than Words: Rock, Power & Politics' and Fox 8's Kenny Crumpton had a chance to hang out with one of the rock legends being highlighted.
