"I never had the pleasure of meeting Dave Brockie "back in the day," and only finally met him when we worked together on the sitcom "Holliston". After spending a bit of time with him, I remember saying to myself, 'This is a really cool guy. I really like him. I look forward to getting to know Dave better in the future.' Sadly, that future will never come. RIP Oderus." - Dee Snider

On March 18, Armoury Records will release a 3CD set of Twisted Sister's "You Can't Stop Rock 'N' Roll", "Come Out And Play" and "Love Is For Suckers" as part of the Armoury Classics series. This is the first time these albums will be available in a single set.
All three of these original Atlantic studio albums encapsulate the history of Twisted Sister's 1980s zenith. "You Can't Stop Rock 'N' Roll", released in 1983, features early hits "I Am (I'm Me)", "The Kids Are Back" and "Like A Knife In The Back". 1985's "Come Out And Play" followed the wild success of "Stay Hungry", the album that launched Twisted Sister into worldwide fame. It includes the star-studded "Be Chrool To Your Scuel", which features assists from Alice Cooper, Billy Joel and Brian Setzer. 1987's "Love Is For Suckers" was the band's final studio album, as lead vocalist Dee Snider left the band shortly after its release, rendering the band separated for 15 years.

Broadway in Chicago on Monday announced a fall 2014 season that will include world premieres from Christopher Smith and Arthur Giron and Twisted Sister frontman Dee Snider, along with recent Broadway hits “Newsies” and “Cinderella” in their North American tours.
Fall productions begin Oct. 9 at the Bank of America Theatre, with Smith and Giron’s world premiere of the musical “Amazing Grace,” starring Josh Young, who played Judas Iscariot in the recent Broadway revival of “Jesus Christ Superstar.” Young plays composer John Newton in this coming-of-age-tale about a young man torn between following in the footsteps of his slave trader father or adopting the more enlightened views of his childhood sweetheart.
Next up is “Dee Snider’s Rock and Roll Christmas Tale” (Nov. 4, 2014-Jan. 4, 2015). Snider wrote and stars in this holiday show about a heavy metal band whose members are so determined to make it, they sell their souls in order to achieve their dreams of stardom.
