To my loyal ride supporters,
Like so many of you, my ride committee and I were deeply affected by the aftermath of Superstorm Sandy on Long Island. To see so many brave Long Islanders so desperately in need touched us all. I was not surprised to see so many Strong Island heroes stepping up and helping others.
Seeing this need in my own “backyard” so to speak, made me realize that even without Sandy, there is so much work to be done right here at home. To that end, I decided, after 10 years of raising money for the March of Dimes on Long Island (and 14 years of MOD work all over the country), that I wanted to change the cause that I rode for, and start raising money to help our friends and neighbors in need.

From legendary rock artist and heavy-metal icon Dee Snider comes DEE SNIDER’S ROCK AND ROLL CHRISTMAS TALE, the new head-banging, heart-warming musical that “mashes up” beloved holiday songs with your favorite hits from Twisted Sister!
DEE SNIDER’S ROCK AND ROLL CHRISTMAS TALE tells the story of Daisy Cütter, a heavy metal bar band looking to make it big even though the 80s are over. This year, these four guys are ready to take the ultimate step and, in mythic rock tradition, sell their souls to the devil in exchange for success beyond their wildest metal dreams! But every time they try to seal the infernal pact, their head-banging anthems turn into warm-hearted carols. Soon these rockers are forced to realize their dreams of stardom are no match for the Christmas spirit.

Leslie West, the legendary guitarist, vocalist and original founding member of MOUNTAIN, will release a new studio album, "Still Climbing", on October 28 via Provogue Records/Mascot Label Group.
The CD is a testimonial to the strength and durability of West's artistry. Born October 22, 1945, as he approaches his 68th birthday, West has packed some of the most soulful and searing vocal performances of his half-century career into these 11 tracks. His guitar has never sounded more massive or riff-orientated.
West, who ascended rock's Mt. Olympus with Mountain in a historic performance at 1969's Woodstock festival, accomplished all of that despite a life-threatening battle with diabetes that cost him most of his right leg in 2011, just after his previous Mascot Label Group release, "Unusual Suspects", was recorded.

Twisted Sister frontman shares his take on the Twisted Manifesto with Twisted Sister - The Movie:
"In the bars, bands were expected to be human jukeboxes - regurgitate the hits, play the music that people want, but not too loud, so they can talk, and pick up guys or girls or do what they do. And Twisted Sister from day one refused to be that band. We would be heard, we would be loud. We didn’t care who was there, who wasn’t there, you were going to watch us, you were going to be aware of us, and we would do whatever it took to get your attention.
