Dee Snider on AgingDee Snider, the former lead singer of Twisted Sister and a certified old rocker, would not beanyone's idea of a moral guardian, given his inextricable links with big hair and head banging.In fact, though, Snider stayed out of the swamp of drugs and booze that buried so many of hispeers, even staying married to the same woman since his early days. I'm hoping "Dee Snider'sRock and Roll Christmas Tale" will be a lot of fun — for all generations.

Twisted Sister’s Dee Snider Responds to Gene Simmons’ ‘Rock Is Dead’ Claim

Dee Snider - Gene Simmons

It seems like everyone is talking about Gene Simmons‘ recent claim that “rock is finally dead.” Always one to make headlines with his words, Simmons spoke of the declining music industry, rise of illegal downloading, shortcuts to fame such as ‘The X Factor’ and much more. The latest rock legend to respond is Twisted Sister‘s Dee Snider, who respectfully offered his own retort to Simmons’ claims.

Just a few days ago, Foo Fighters tweeted out a short reaction, ‘Not so fast, Mr. God of Thunder…’ to the KISS veteran’s quote. Foo Fighters have been doing their part to keep rock breathing, creating a tremendous buzz for their upcoming studio album, ‘Sonic Highways,’ which was recorded in eight of the United States’ most rock-rich cities. An HBO series named for the record will further place rock music in the spotlight once it debuts on Oct. 17. And let’s not forget that Dave Grohl also released the phenomenal rock doc ‘Sound City’ in 2013.

Point/Counter Point: Rock 'N' Roll Ain't Dead

Dee Snider to Gene Simmons - Rock N Roll Ain't Dead

Recently, my esteemed colleague, Gene Simmons of Kiss declared that "Rock 'n' Roll is finally dead". Really?

While I have nothing but respect for Gene, he couldn't be further off the mark. Yes, the rock 'n' roll "business model" that helped Kiss (and my band for that matter) achieve fame and fortune is most certainly long dead and buried, but rock 'n' roll is alive and well and thriving on social media, in the streets, and in clubs and concert halls all over the world. And the bands playing it are more genuine and heartfelt than ever because they are in it for one reason: the love of rock 'n' roll.
