Jeffrey T. With Dee

Jeffrey T. With Dee Snider

Thanks to the American Red Cross of Greater Chicago for letting me be part of the CBS Chicago Cares day of giving. It was an honor to join forces and raise money for disaster relief here in Chicagoland!

It was absolutely NO surprise to see Dee Snider in the house. He’s a giver! And, he’s basically “Mr. Chicago” these days.  Dee was in the Mag Mile Festival of Lights. He’s lighting the Christmas Tree at Daley Plaza tonight. He’ll be the grand marshal of the Thanksgiving Day parade on Thursday. Did I mention Dee Snider’s Rock & Roll Christmas Tale at the Broadway Playhouse?

Dee took time out of his busy schedule to talk to me about his new residency in Chicago! Listen to the Interview

Perhaps The Greatest Christmas Show of The Century

Dee Snider's Rock & Roll Christmas Tale

Wittien by Dave McGuire for Showbiz Chicago

"You bring the wife and the Kids into town for some deep-dish pizza, and Christmas cheer, and run smack dab into a satanic ritual.” This sums the show up perfectly, yet doesn’t do it justice all at once.

Let me try again, “it’s okay to want, just don’t over-look the gifts, you already have.” Yeah, that’s a more Christmas like opening. Let’s get holly-jolly, ya’ll ….. O’Holy-Night he’s killing Frosty……

Makes Me Wanna Rock

Dee Snider's Rock & Roll Christmas Tale - PlaybillWhen rockers reach a certain age, one of the following things usually happens. They either dreamed of burning out, but they fade away; they try to continue performing the way they always have before, blissfully unaware that they look like the Crypt Keeper, and have mostly lost their voices, strutting about like roosters, making final millions off their glory days; they appear to have made deals with the devil, continue to perform as they always have, looking and sounding BETTER than in their glory days, when in reality, they should be melting in a corner somewhere from all the toxic substances they and their friends imbibed, making mere mortals yearn for a hot gray streak and some tight pants; OR, they reinvent themselves. Who would have thought that Hot Legs, Maggie May singing Rod Stewart would have decided at some point to put on a tux, or a velvety smoking jacket and turn that bluesy voice to the standards? And succeed? What’s that you say? Nobody? I agree, but honestly, his voice lends itself to those sexy old songs, so when you think about it, it’s not much of a stretch. You want to know who IS a surprise? Everybody’s old Twisted friend Dee Snider, HE has blown me away. Mr. We’re Not Gonna Take it, has wiped off the makeup, lost the belly shirts, brushed his hair and written a Christmas musical, and it ROCKS!
