Rock star Dee Snider recalls how excited he was when he saw his first big Christmas stage show in New York.
It was while growing up, as young Daniel Snider, raised in Long Island, NY, when he says his grandparents took him to Radio City Music Hall to see the New York City Rockettes in their annual Radio City Christmas Spectacular, the traditional stage chestnut favorite of generations.

Dee 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 singer Dee Snider spoke to the Chicago Sun-Times about “Dee Snider’s Rock & Roll Christmas Tale”, starring and written by the iconic rocker, directed by Adam John Hunter and produced by John B.

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.
