For years, Bob Kulick has aligned himself with some of the greats in the music business. Now a number of top musicians are aligning themselves with Kulick as the veteran sideman and producer prepares a new solo album.
Since 've been in the business, I’ve been writing about a sequel to Dee Snider’s Strangeland. For those history buffs out there, Strangeland 2 was greenlit back in 1997 before the first one came out. A script was written, and the powers-that-be were in the earliest stages of pre-production when the production company got indicted by the federal government.
Halloween season is still half a year away, but you can stay scared during the spring at the Spooky Empire Mid-Season convention, which has announced a roster of “retro” guests including Malcolm McDowell and Dee Snider.
Spooky Empire announced its return to The Wyndham Orlando Resort for their mid-season convention happening April 21 – 23, 2017. The 3-day annual weekend will feature an array of activities including celebrity autographs with meet & greets, Q&A’s led by special guests, and a tattoo festival with more than 25+ artists.
In 2016, Twisted Sister performed what the band said were its final shows. Without wasting any time, frontman Dee Snider released We Are the Ones, a solo album that embraces his hard rock roots, while also celebrating his affinity for punk rock and sprinkling in some contemporary sounds. Along the way he couldn't resist rethinking two old classics, putting his own spin on Nine Inch Nails' "Head Like a Hole" and rearranging his own "We're Not Gonna Take it" as an acoustic ballad.
We talked with Snider late last year about moving on from his iconic band, how his nutritionist and Debbie Gibson helped out with his new record, and how he realized he'd been screwing up the lyrics of one of his biggest hits.
