RIP Clive Burr

Written by Dee Snider. Posted in Desperado

Clive BurrAfter a long battle with MS, my dear friend Clive Burr passed away in his sleep last night. We worked together on a project called Desperado from 1988-1990 and shared some great times, and sadly forgotten musical moments. I'm blessed to have spoken to him a couple of days ago on his birthday, shared some memories and a few smiles. A rock n roll legend has been lost, and the world of music is less because of it. RIP Clive and "hit 'em hard" in rock n roll heaven. - Dee Snider

Clive Burr - March 8 1957 – March 12 2013

Dee's Challenger T/A

Dee Snider Challenger T/ALast Friday, while biking to Brooklyn from Manhattan, my dad called me. I was on Broadway in SoHo, so I stopped at a corner and chatted with him for a few minutes until this purple Dodge Challenger approached me at the turn. It was one of the cooler Challys I had seen in recent memory, so it caught my eye like others haven't in the past. Despite the tinted windows, I managed to catch a glimpse of the driver's face and thought, "Hmm . . . is that . . ?" Then I looked to the rear as it turned from Broadway and saw the license plate that said WIDOWMAKER. That's when I knew it was Dee Snider, former singer of Twisted Sister, free speech advocate, House of Hair deejay and, apparently, Celebrity Apprentice. I told Dad, "Hey, I gotta go . . . [click]" and gave chase. Two blocks later I was able to catch up to him but he wouldn't step out.

Can you blame him?

Dee and Baz Skiing

Dee and Baz SkiingGiven the eternally hot temperatures in Hell, one would think that a ski resort in Vermont would not be an appropriate place to make the “devil horns” sign. However, Dee Snider, always one to do the unexpected, thinks otherwise, and it’s our Pic of the Week.

On Friday (March 15), Snider tweeted, “Me and Sebastian Bach skiing incognito today. Yeah…we blend!” Such “blending” includes metal-appropriate winter gear. The Twisted Sister frontman is wearing a skull mask, while Bach’s famously long locks are (partially) being covered by a hat with a fake claw attached. We suspect that the aerodynamic properties of the hat while on the slopes are largely non-existent.

Snider and Bach are at Okemo Mountain in Ludlow, Vt. as special guests of Yukon Kornelius, a cover band supergroup composed of members of Dave Matthews Band, Barenaked Ladies and Guster. Snider has appeared with them on several occasions.

Snider’s also tweeted that his family has joined him for the weekend. As it turns out, Friday was also Snider’s 58th birthday.
