Dee Snider Shows Support For Protesters At Standing Rock In Video For “So What”

Dee Snider Shows Support For Protesters At Standing Rock In Video For “So What”

Not one to shy away from any political or social cause that he wholeheartedly believes in, legendary rocker DEE SNIDER is now showing his support for the thousands of men and women at the Standing Rock Indian Reservation in North Dakota who are protesting the Dakota Access Pipeline.

In a video for “So What” that premiered earlier today exclusively on Noisey.com, DEE and son/director Cody Snider beautifully exhibits the faces of the courageous men, women and children that are fighting for their land and offers a glimpse at the resistance and tribulation they are faced with as they stand their ground. The song can be found on DEE’s new solo album, WE ARE THE ONES, which was released October 28 on Red River Records (distributed by BFD/RED).

As SNIDER recently told The New York Post’s Page Six:  “To see U.S. government state and local authorities, along with hired private security, use this type of extreme violent force against unarmed American citizens in peaceful prayer is the saddest, most disturbing thing I have ever experienced. I’m glad we were there to capture the truth for all to see.”

Earlier this summer, DEE SNIDER took part in the unveiling of the new Rock & Roll Hall of Fame exhibit, “Louder Than Words: Rock, Power And Politics,” featuring memorabilia related to his 1985 Senate hearing regarding the PMRC. To commemorate the Hall of Fame exhibit, DEE performed a new acoustic version of Twisted Sister’s legendary song, “We’re Not Gonna Take It.” This moving new version of DEE’s epic anthem is also currently available on WE ARE THE ONES.

In September, superstar magician Criss Angel joined forces with SNIDER for the first time ever to release a music video featuring the new acoustic version of “We’re Not Gonna Take It.” Directed by Angel, the video aims to raise awareness of pediatric cancer. It sent a powerful message to viewers as SNIDER belts out the iconic lyrics, while the mother of a young girl—who is a cancer survivor—allows her head to be shaved in solidarity with her daughter and in support of the fight all of these children must endure. The video also features heart-wrenching footage of Criss Angel’s son, Johnny Crisstopher, going through treatments after being diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL) in 2015.

While in April 2016, he was called to Capitol Hill for the second time—the first at the infamous 1985 Senate hearing instigated by Tipper Gore and the Parents Music Resource Center (PMRC)–to speak on behalf of The Recording Academy’s “Fair Play Fair Pay” initiative.

In 2014, SNIDER was the recipient of the prestigious Harry Chapin Memorial Humanitarian Award for his charitable work spanning several decades. Most notably, he spent twelve years as the national spokesman and Grand Marshal of the March of Dimes Bikers for Babies initiative (for whom he raised $325,000 with his Celebrity Apprentice win), established his annual Ride to Fight Hunger for Long Island Cares, and donated his Gold and Platinum album awards to Broadway Cares for auction.

For 40 years, Dee Snider has rocked crowds around the world as the frontman of the legendary rock band, Twisted Sister. As that chapter of his life came to a close, he was already busy penning a new one and has no intention of fading off into the sunset any time soon! In 2016, Snider struck out on his own to explore a different side of himself as a solo artist. His new album, ‘We Are The Ones,’ pairs the rock legend with Grammy®, Emmy®, and Oscar® winning songwriter Damon Ranger, for tunes hand selected for a contemporary audience. From the call-to-arms manifesto of “Rule the World,” to the anthemic bonding of “So What”, to the thematically soaring “Superhero,” the album truly shows a new side of the musical icon we have come to know through the years. In addition to an explosive cover of the Nine Inch Nails’ iconic track ‘Head Like A Hole”, the truly dynamic duo prepared a newly re-recorded acoustic version of “We’re Not Gonna Take It”, which has been tapped as the official anthem for The Recording Academy’s advocacy efforts. In short, this new collection of material from Dee Snider is every bit as powerful, energetic, and timely as the songs that thrust him into the limelight decades ago. One thing is for certain, Dee Snider is living proof that you can’t stop rock ‘n’ roll! Jason Price of Icon Vs. Icon caught up with Snider on Election Day to discuss his exciting new endeavor as a solo artist, the challenges of bringing ‘We Are The Ones” to life, his thoughts on the current state of our nation and The American Dream, and what he has in store for us in the year to come!

You have done it all through the years and we can definitely look to you as an inspiration. Going back to your early years, what went into finding your creative voice?

Going to the earliest inspiration, it was purely the desire to get attention! [laughs] I’m the oldest of six kids born in very rapid succession and the oldest grandchild, niece, or nephew. That all evaporated within about a year’s time. There was a very brief moment in time where I was like Simba in “The Lion King.” It was like The Circle of Life where they held me up over the village and everyone cheered. Then, all of a sudden, everyone started shitting out kids like it was a competition and I was just shoved aside! [laughs] That’s not a memory I have but something that I know affected me. The minute I saw that there was a way to get attention for rock ’n’ roll, I said, “Count me in!”

You’ve been at it now for decades and have been very successful along the way. In your opinion, what are the keys to longevity in this business?

Dee Snider in 1985 on Capitol Hill.

Persistence. Refusing to accept the hand you are dealt. We are all going to the business with the same dream of “We’re going to make it,” and by we, I mean every aspiring musician. The same thing goes for athletes or anyone who has a dream of something more than just accepting mediocrity. You view it like it’s a finish line. As a kid, you think you will get across the finish line, will be set for life, and live happily ever after! Yay! Spike the ball! Run a victory lap! Then you get there and you’re like, “Oh shit! It’s not a finish line at all. It’s another starting point!” There is a very small percentage of people who have an ongoing, long career, whether it be in acting, music, or sports. The rest of us have a window of time. Then you’re expected to leave the stage and just go quietly into the night. Don’t go quietly into the night! Say, “No! I’m not done! I’m not through! I’m not ready to leave just yet!” I’m not ready to accept someone saying that my moment in the sun was 1984 to 1986, thank you very much! That mixed with a large degree of desperation, after you have burned through the money you made and wake up at 30-something, you’re married and you have three kids, and you have no income stream, drives me. It drives me to say, “Well, what else can I do that is going to challenge me, make me feel like I’m accomplishing something, satisfy me creatively and provide for my family?”

With that said, you get to meet a lot of people from all walks of life and all corners of the country. What is your take on The American Dream in this day and age?

The American Dream is absolutely alive and well. Bono said, and I’m not a big U2 fan, that America is the greatest idea that anybody ever invented; it’s an incredible ideal. The Dream is part of that America. I don’t think it’s being represented properly, executed properly or living up to the expectations of our forefathers or their vision. That’s not being unpatriotic; that is being ultimately patriotic and saying that something needs to be done. That is the inspiration for “We Are The Ones.” “We Are The Ones,” as a project, coincided with the presidential campaign season. I started on the album a little over 18 months ago and that’s right around when the whole electoral process started. It’s very inspired by the fact that we are in a situation today, with the candidates that we are offered and the environment in Washington, that we have allowed to happen. The we in “We Are The Ones” and the we in “We allowed it to happen,” are the average Janes and Joes. They are The people working the jobs, paying the taxes and fighting the wars. We are living and working The American Dream. While we just want to do the right thing, we have allowed the extreme left and the extreme right to take control and decide things for us. I have been screaming since “We’re Not Gonna Take It” that people need to step up, let their voices be heard, and not sit there quietly. Make a damn stink! Let people know what you think and how you feel! Most of us, the vast majority, are in the middle, trying to make sense of it all and make the best choices and decisions for ourselves, for our families and for the world. Meanwhile, we have crazy people running the show!

dee-snider-we-are-the-ones-2016

“We Are The Ones” is your debut solo album. Did you have any reservations about pursuing a solo career?

Absolutely! I had never planned on it. I thought I was done musically. I hadn’t really done anything creatively musically in decades. I was ready to move on with my other creative endeavors. As you know, I do many other things. I write, I do radio, and I do television. I accidentally ran into Damon Ranger, who challenged me to to take the Dee Snider message, which he said is needed now more than ever, and bring it to a wider and more contemporary audience by creating music for today. At first I was like, “Seriously? Me? At this point in my life in my career making new, contemporary music?” He said, “Dude, yeah! You’re iconic! With the right stuff, you could reach a whole new audience. People know you and they’re aware of you but musically you have only served a very small segment of the rock audience that’s out there.” I said, “Fair enough! What do you have in mind?” We started down the road until we got to the point where we are today!

How much did the finished product you created differ from what you may have envisioned as your first solo record?

I had no vision of what the album might be! [laughs] Damon had it all. I was doubtful that I had a place. I kept seeing this album as a painting, although it’s not really. There are all different hues and colors that are all part of the same painting coming together to make a whole. As each song came together and each piece was brought in, I was like, “I don’t see how that works. I don’t see that happening” or “I don’t think I can do that.” Damon, to his credit, wouldn’t take no for an answer. He very much saw and appreciated my value, my talent and gifts, his words not mine, and that they could work with these different kind of songs in these different kinds of ways. Once I got into the studio and started sinking my teeth into the stuff, I saw it and I got it but it was very much Damon pushing me and encouraging me to experiment and try things that I normally wouldn’t have done.

What do you consider the biggest challenge of bringing this new album to life?

I didn’t think I had a place doing new music and the verdict is still out on that. The people will decide. When I was growing up and I was coming up, there were these artists who would not get out of the way and it was very frustrating to me. Not only would some of them not to get out of the way, but some of them would break into four or five bands! [laughs] Genesis became Phil Collins, Peter Gabriel, Mike and The Mechanics and Genesis! I was like, “Jesus, man! Get out of the fucking way! There are only so many hours in the day and days in the year! Where’s my place here?” Now, here I am kind of doing the same thing! [laughs] I was like, “Hey, this is for younger talented people to do.” Damon, as part of his pitch to me, was like, “You do something unique. Your voice, your attitude, your rebellious spirit and what you represent historically is important. There’s not like there is a long line of people who can replace you. You do the Dee thing!” My biggest contribution on this record is lyrically and spiritually and the energy that is in there. I tried to put that thing that I have been doing, that Damon, others and, obviously, the record company see and think, “Yeah, there is a place for this! There’s a need for this flavor that Dee Snider brings and there aren’t a lot of people who are doing it.”

“We Are The Ones” feels very balanced. What went into finding the right mix of material to bring this album together as a whole?

Like I said, it was very much like a painting in that you have a canvas, you take the paint brush, you dab it in a color and put it on there and say, “Ok, I like that. That looks good. Now, what would compliment that?” You look at the palette with all of the colors and think, “Hmm, what about this one here?” That was the process and everything was added one stroke at a time. There were many times, like I said, that I was doubtful about it once I got into the vocal booth and started singing and performing it, it became alive, it became mine and it worked. There was only one song that we created that didn’t work. When I went into the booth, it still wasn’t gelling for me. It was the only time where Damon said, “I see what you are saying and I agree with you here.” With the exception of that one change, it was very carefully crafted to be a total package.

What was the biggest lesson you took away from the experience of making this album?

I learned a lot of things. For one, “Don’t sell yourself short.” It’s too early to say that the record is a hit, it is certainly not yet, but the people who are hearing it are reacting, for the most part, very positively. Of course there’re always some naysayers and critics. Some girl from another country, Ukraine or something, called me a putz, which I thought was a funny American word for her to pick up! [laughs] It was in really broken English saying something like “Dee Snider destroyed rock ’n’ roll. Putz!” [laughs] Anyway, I have been pleasantly surprised by how enthusiastic people have been about it. The reviews are positive overall and I haven’t seen one person say, “What is this old dude doing here?,” which is kind of what I was feeling when the idea was first presented to me. It’s not that I feel old but I’m not a fool to think people don’t know I have been around for 40 years! [laughs] At the same time, none of my peers are making contemporary music. All of my peers are either making new old music, music that sounds like it was written in the 80s, or they are going country! I don’t want ago country, and the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and hoping for a different result! [laughs] I didn’t want to go back to the future! “Great Scott, Marty!” [laughs] I didn’t want to do an old sounding record that no one would buy or care about and then go out on tour and play two new songs from the record, which everyone goes and pees during! By the end of the tour you’re not even playing the new songs anymore! Hopefully, people will hear the name Dee Snider and think, “Ok, we’ll listen to this…” and then they judge it by it’s quality, not my age or whatever. So far, the judgment has been fairly good then at least I’m happy with the feedback I’ve been getting.

As a guy who’s been doing it as long as you have, you have seen it all in the music industry. What are the best and worst parts about being a working artist these days?

For me personally, it’s too soon to tell you what the best parts may be because this is a whole new world and it’s very different from when I started out. However, the best parts that I see is the passion that young artists have. They are doing this out of pure love and desire to create and perform. When I started out, I wanted to be a rich, famous, rock star, in that order. I wanted to be rich and I wanted to be famous. I like rock ’n’ roll and being a rock star was a way to get rich and famous. I see so many young musicians that don’t even think about being rich as an option. They don’t even view as a possibility! They just want to play because they love it. I think that is sad, but it’s also a very positive thing that there is such a true passion coming from young musicians. It’s great! The worst thing is that people can’t make a living doing what they love. That is the sad part. They don’t even dare to hope that they will make a living doing the thing that they love. When I was back playing the clubs in the 70s, we used to get $300 to $350 a night when we started out. Bands today, if they get paid, get $300 to $350 a night! Most of them have to sell tickets to get on the bill. How can bands still be being paid the same amount of money I was paid! How do you survive on that? How do you do anything? It’s sad!

How do view your evolution as an artist through the years?

Whether it’s writing music, screenplays, writing a book, acting or any of the things I have done, they are all crafts and they require practice an effort and the more time you spend doing them the better you get at the craft. With that said, it doesn’t necessarily mean you’re going to sell product. In my 20s, I sold the most records I have ever sold, even though 40 years later I think I am a better creator and craftsman at what I do, it hasn’t been a guarantee of record sales, so there’s something about simplicity with age and experience, as I say in my book, you learn so many life lessons that you apply to everything in your life. The evolution is a natural one and if you’re not a complete moron, you learn from your mistakes and moving forward you tried not to repeat those mistakes.

It always seems that you have plenty of irons in the fire. What do you have in store for us in the short-term in addition to the new album? Where do you see yourself headed?

The past couple of years I’ve been working on a musical that I wrote called “A Rock & Roll Christmas Tale.” That has been in Chicago and Toronto and I expect to see it being re-staged in the holiday seasons to come. I just signed with an army of agents who are looking for me to do more acting. That has been like a side thing for me over the years and I would like to do more in the future. I also want to do more writing and I have been shopping a book deal for a new fiction book that I am working on. I’ve also written some screenplays that are being shopped right now and, of course, I’m always trying to get “Strangeland 2” going. I don’t know what the hell it is with that thing! [laughs] That whole experience could be a documentary in itself — “The Making of Strangeland 2.” [laughs] What the fuck?! That is what it would be called, “The Making of Strangeland 2: WTF!” There are a lot of creative properties I am looking to explore. Like I said, I was ready to dive in to all these other things when Damon Ranger approached me, So I put everything else on hold to focus on the album for the past year.

We are slowly inching our way toward the 20th anniversary of “Strangeland” in 2018. Are there any plans on the radar for a special release or anything of that sort?

Dee Snider's 'Strangeland'

Dee Snider’s ‘Strangeland’

Yes and no. I look for interest from other people to reinforce that the interest is out there. Case in point, the album. Damon challenged me to do something new and we went in and demoed some stuff. In a very short amount of time we had major record deals in the United States and in Europe, so I knew I wasn’t alone in and that there were other people who saw the vision as well. So, I need to see something from somebody besides myself and my own bank account! With that said, I’m at the point where I’m thinking about it more often. So many people ask me about “Strangeland 2.” Someone asked me, “Well, why don’t you crowdfund it?” I’m thinking, “Good point!” if people want this movie so bad, and it seems like when I go to these horror conventions and it seems like everybody wants it, maybe that is the route to go. Maybe this coming year, heading toward the 20th anniversary, what sounds like the right amount of time between funding it, filming it and releasing it, I will see if the audience wants to put their money where their mouth is and join me in this journey!

Well, you definitely have my money!

Thanks, brother! I have to say, it’s a sad but wonderful thing, this whole crowdfunding thing and these pledge sites. On one hand, you have the fact that the artist has to turn to the fans and on the other hand, the fans are there and supporting the artists, encouraging them and becoming part of the process. It’s amazing! Our documentary, the Twisted Sister documentary, would have never happened without fan support, along with so many other great projects are out there. It’s great!

So it sounds like you’re ready have the story nailed down for where you would be going in “Strangeland 2.”

Oh yeah. It was greenlit back in 1997 before the first one came out. It was greenlit, a script was written and we were in the earliest stages of preproduction when the company got indicted by the federal government! I hang out with the best people! [laughs] At that point in time, all the properties were seized and we’re tied up in the court system for seven years. It took me seven years just to get my property back and at that point it was 2004. So, the script was there and now I’m just trying to find a production company and the financing to do it!

I know you also do a lot of great work for many deserving charities. What can we help shine a light on?

I’ve been involved with so many different charities over time and I try to help out as many as I can. When I downsized my house, I had all these platinum and gold records, which I was going to put in storage. I thought, “This is ridiculous. They have been hanging on my wall now for decades and it’s wonderful but I need some new things to hang up. I’m going to auction these off for charity!” I did and I split the money from auctioning them between Broadway Cares: Equity Fights Aids, and The Boot campaign, which supports our troops. I was supporting theater people with AIDS and the men and women in uniform at the same time. I like to be diverse! I just did a video for the acoustic version of “We’re Not Gonna Take It” and worked closely with Criss Angel on his children’s cancer foundation, the Johnny Crisstopher Children’s Charitable Foundation. I’ve also done a lot of work with the March of Dimes. I had my annual motorcycle ride to feed the hungry on Long Island. There are so many important causes out there and so many people who need help, so I try to do what I can. I can always do more but I definitely do what I can!

That’s terrific, Dee! Thanks so much for your time today. I really appreciate it. I dig the album and I hope it the first of many for you. I wish you continued success!

Thanks, Jason! It really means a lot. I’m honestly tickled pink to have something new out here at a time when I wasn’t expecting to do anything new and have people going, “I’m really enjoying this! This is great!” Of course, sales is the ultimate compliment! [laughs] I’m joking! [laughs] Having people enjoy what you’re doing and saying that it has value is the first battle and it’s the biggest one, so that’s cool!

Well, like I said, you’ve definitely got my support and we will be spreading the word!

Thanks a lot, brother! I appreciate it!

Rock Legend Dee Snider To Release ‘We Are The Ones’ Solo Album In October 2016

dee-snider-2016-1

One thing you won’t ever catch DEE SNIDER doing is being complacent. “I’ve never been about living in the past,” Snider says. “The past is wonderful to reflect on and enjoy, but for me, I’d rather show you the latest thing I’ve been working on. I’m all about looking ahead, and this new record is very much about me moving forward.”

DEE’s vibrant new solo album, WE ARE THE ONES, is due out in October on Red River Records (Distributed by BFD/RED). Produced by Grammy®, Emmy® and Oscar® winning song writer, Damon Ranger, WE ARE THE ONES crackles with modern energy, from the call-to-arms manifesto of “Rule the World,” to the anthemic bonding of “So What” (complete with, yes, a string section) to the intensely synth driven “Close to You,” to the thematically soaring “Superhero” (a song tailor-made for running over the end credits of the next Marvel or DC movie blockbuster if ever there was one). Another significant highlight of the album is a newly re-recorded acoustic version of “We’re Not Gonna Take It” which has also been tapped the official anthem for The Recording Academy’s advocacy efforts, including the “Fair Play Fair Pay” Act. Recently performed in Washington D.C. at the annual GRAMMYs On The Hill event, a video of the song premiered earlier today on Entertainment Weekly’s website HERE and can now be viewed at Grammy.com/FairPlayFairPay.

Also featured is an explosive cover of Nine Inch Nails’ “Head Like A Hole.” “I always thought it was a great song, a powerful song,” DEE explains, “I can’t wait to do that one live. Like ‘We’re Not Gonna Take It’ is iconic, ‘Head Like a Hole’ is iconic for that era.”

With Twisted Sister effectively entering the rearview mirror, DEE now has his sights dead-set on his new musical direction. “You can’t expect others to embrace what you do if you don’t embrace it yourself,” he admits. “I have to believe it first before I can expect anybody else to believe it.  When you’re creating a new record, you want to make a statement, and you want to have music you can stand behind and feel strongly about. So it was a little unnerving when I started heading down this path. After Damon and I cut the first four tracks, I said, ‘Oh yeah, there is a place for me here.’ This is music I feel excited about, and I also look forward to playing it live.”

Earlier this summer, DEE took part in the unveiling of the new Rock & Roll Hall of Fame exhibit, “Louder Than Words: Rock, Power And Politics,” which will remain on display in Cleveland during the 2016 Republican National Convention. To commemorate the new Hall of Fame exhibit, DEE performed a new acoustic version of Twisted Sister’s legendary song, “We’re Not Gonna Take It.” This moving new version of DEE’s epic anthem is currently available on iTunes.

In April 2016, DEE was called to Capitol Hill for the second time—the first at the infamous 1985 Senate hearing instigated by Tipper Gore and the Parents Music Resource Center (PMRC)–to speak on behalf of The Recording Academy’s “Fair Play Fair Pay” initiative.  On September 18, DEE will be presenting his new music at Riot Fest at Douglas Park in Chicago, IL.

DEE is unapologetically energized about where he’s going as an artist. “Music inspires that genuine enthusiasm.  I’m not anti the past — I’m just not one of those guys sitting there singing about the glory days.  To me, these are the glory days, and the days to come are the glory days.  And this new record is the part of my next glory days.”

It sure is.  WE ARE THE ONES opens an exciting new chapter in the ongoing, never-ending glorious saga of DEE SNIDER.  And that’s how you come to rule the world.

METAL MELTDOWN: Concert Series To Kick Off Blu-ray Releases With Twisted Sister On July 22nd

METAL MELTDOWN: Concert Series To Kick Off Blu-ray Releases With Twisted Sister On July 22nd

twistedsistermetalmeltdowncover

The first “Metal Meltdown” concert series event kicked off at The Joint at the world famous Hard Rock Casino in Las Vegas on May 30, 2015. Legendary, multi-Platinum selling rockers Twisted Sister performed an explosive 90-minute concert of their biggest hits spanning their 40-year career. The show was dedicated to the honor of Twisted Sister’s iconic drummer, A.J. Pero, whose tragic, sudden death just two months prior to the filming of this event shocked the music world. The band announced that not only were all the remaining concerts being performed in 2015 dedicated to the memory of A.J. Pero, but that 2016 would mark the 40th and final year of the band’s legendary live performances. They recruited renowned drummer and friend of A.J. Pero, Mike Portnoy (The Winery Dogs, Dream Theater, Avenged Sevenfold) to take the reins, and his very first Twisted Sister appearance was captured by the “Metal Meltdown” camera crew.

Twisted Sister fans will now get to witness that special concert produced by the award-winning production company, Rock Fuel Media in association with Loud & Proud Records. Directed by Brian Lockwood (Bon Jovi, Metallica, Motley Crue), TWISTED SISTER: METAL MELTDOWN LIVE AT THE HARD ROCK CASINO LAS VEGAS – A CONCERT TO HONOR A.J. PERO features that complete concert, as well as Rockshow, a bonus documentary that takes fans through the band’s 40-year ride from local club outcasts to world domination with exclusive interviews, archive footage from the ‘80s, photo gallery. It was mixed in 5.1 Surround Sound. Set for release July 22, the retail package includes both BluRay and DVD formats as well as an audio CD. A trailer can be seen here.

As Twisted Sister guitarist JayJay French explains, “The decision to continue performing all the summer shows in 2015, not to mention the concert that this performance celebrates, was in jeopardy over the days immediately following A.J.’s sudden death. We needed time to re-group and re-focus. Everyone was great. All the promoters of the huge European summer festivals that we were set to headline and Barry, the producer of this concert said, ‘We understand. You all (meaning the band) have to do what makes you comfortable. Whatever the band decides has to be honored and respected.’

“In the end, I believe we did what A.J. would have wanted us to do and Mike Portnoy was a very big part of that decision in both an emotional and artistic way. This performance captured herein just two months after A.J.’s death really was about our way to help memorialize the great A.J. Pero. The front four (Dee, Eddie, Mark and I) have had no one but A.J. behind us since 1982. This concert has A.J.’s influence permeating through our bloodstream in ways that I will never forget and when we cut to A.J.’s drum solo on the rear projection screen, We were all emotionally overwhelmed. Not since our reunion for NY Steel in 2001 (to honor and raise money for the families of the NYC police and fire department who died on 9/11) have I been moved to tears.”

Award-winning producer Barry Summers of Rock Fuel Media commented, “Twisted Sister was the first live club band I ever saw in 1979 at Emmett’s Inn in New Jersey, and they literally blew my mind. We actually revisited Emmett’s and filmed a scene for the Rockshow documentary. It has been a real dream come true to produce this amazing concert film for such an iconic and influential band. The tribute to A.J. Pero makes this film that much more special. We’re excited to give the fans the highest quality concert film and live recordings ever released in the year of Twisted Sister’s final farewell.”

Other bands filmed in Las Vegas as part of the “Metal Meltdown” include Extreme, Skid Row and Great White. Stay tuned for details on those releases.

The Legendary Dee Snider Releases New Song “To Hell And Back”

The Legendary Dee Snider Releases New Song “To Hell And Back”

dee-snider-press-2015

In March of this year, DEE SNIDER and his Twisted Sister bandmates mourned the loss of their drummer, AJ Pero, and announced that the 2016 touring season (the 40th anniversary of the band’s formation) will be the end of the road for the world-dominating force of nature that is Twisted Sister.  While perhaps he is best known as the lead singer of the ‘80s sensation, there is so much more to DEE SNIDER.

DEE SNIDER is continuing to make music on his own, releasing “To Hell and Back” exclusively via his website, www.deesnider.com, as a free download.  He co-wrote the song with Silvertide founder/guitarist Nick Perri. This track will be included in a new album that DEE is currently working on with Grammy®, Emmy® and Oscar® winning writer/producer Damon Ranger (“Life Of Pi”).  The new project will also feature material from DEE’s past including his worldwide hits with Twisted Sister.

Later this summer, DEE and his band–Nick Perri (lead guitars), Dan McCafferty (rhythm/lead guitar), Nicolai Nifoussi (bass), Joe Franco (drums)—will launch a solo tour which will take him to Europe and South America for festival shows including Rock In Rio in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil and the Rock Of Ages Festival in Baliingen, Germany.  He’ll also be performing a number of headlining shows in the U.S. starting with the Legendary Buffalo Chip Campground at the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally in Sturgis, SD on August 3.

DEE SNIDER has starred in several reality TV shows including appearances in three seasons of Celebrity Apprentice, Gone Country with John Rich, MTV’s Rock The Cradle with his son Jesse Blaze, Growing Up Twisted, an A&E series featuring the entire Snider family and their Long Island lifestyle, ABC’s Celebrity Wife Swap, and Celebrity Holiday Homes.  He has also been a frequent host on the MTV Networks and, with more than 20 years on the air in radio, his own long-running, nationally syndicated radio show House Of Hair can be heard on over 200 stations in North America and at Houseofhaironline.com.  DEE also recently launched a much-heralded podcast “Snider Comments” on the PodcastOne network.  His career as a voiceover artist has resulted in DEE being heard in many radio and TV commercials, animated shows, documentaries and a yearlong stint as the voice on MSNBC.

Never setting limits, DEE wrote, produced and starred in Dee Snider’s StrangeLand. This horror movie has become a cult classic, literally creating the torture film sub-genre. The sequel, StrangeLand: Disciple is currently in development. With the success of StrangeLand, DEE was tapped to host a weekly radio show on all things horror, Fangoria Radio, on Sirius XM.

In 2002, VH1 signed DEE to star as himself in their original movie production of Warning: Parental Advisory.  Co-starring Mariel Hemingway, Jason Priestley and Griffin Dunne, DEE re-created his role during the 1985 congressional record labelling hearings. Battling the Beltway wives, most notably Tipper Gore, DEE, along with Frank Zappa and John Denver, turned DC politics upside down, carrying the banner of his Twisted Sister legendary anthem “We’re Not Gonna Take It.”

His recent starring role on Broadway in the hit musical Rock Of Ages generated national interest and appearances on The Today Show, CNN’s Joy Behar Show and a legendary spot on The Jimmy Fallon Show where DEE guested with The Roots and Jimmy on Twisted Sister’s self-penned hit, “I Wanna Rock.” The Rock Of Ages run inspired him to make a brand new record for Razor & Tie, DEE DOES BROADWAY, featuring some of the Great White Way’s biggest songs, side by side with Broadway legends like Patti LuPone and Bebe Neuwirth, in his own indomitable style.  His self-penned memoirs, Shut Up and Give Me The Mic, were released in the summer of 2012 from Gallery Books/Simon & Schuster to critical acclaim, coinciding with Warner Pictures’ release of the Tom Cruise, Alec Baldwin, Catherine Zeta Jones, Russell Brand film version of Rock Of Ages, which features two of Twisted Sister’s biggest hits.

Since starring in Rock Of Ages and recording DEE DOES BROADWAY, DEE SNIDER’s Broadway connection has continued to grow.  “Dee Snider’s Rock ‘n’ Roll Christmas Tale” (lyrics, music and book by DEE SNIDER) completed a highly successful nine-week run throughout the 2014 holiday season at Broadway in Chicago, and is heading for Toronto this year.  DEE also produced the off-Broadway hit ensemble “Puppet Shakespeare,” (five stars, New York Times) and the international award-winning short film “Fool’s Day.”

In 2014, DEE was the recipient of the prestigious Harry Chapin Memorial Humanitarian Award for his charitable work spanning several decades. Most notably, he spent twelve years as the national spokesman and Grand Marshal of the March of Dimes Bikers for Babies initiative (for whom he raised $325,000 with his Celebrity Apprentice win), established his annual Ride to Fight Hunger for Long Island Cares, and donated his Gold and Platinum album awards to Broadway Cares for auction.

Laura Catalina Ortiz Dishes On Adam Green’s Horror/Comedy Sitcom “Holliston”

Laura Catalina Ortiz Dishes On Adam Green’s Horror/Comedy Sitcom “Holliston”

Laura Catalina Ortiz’s career in the entertainment industry started humbly. Who knew that young girl from Bogota, Columbia with aspirations of becoming an actress would move to California and eventually star in a T-Mobile commercial propelling her career to unexpected heights? Armed with a resume that includes portraying Ruby in Alexandre Aja’s remake of Wes Craven’s “The Hills Have Eyes,” Laura joined forces with friends Adam Green and Joe Lynch to bring the horror/comedy sitcom “Holliston” to life on television screens across America. With a cast that includes Green and Lynch, as well as Oderus Urungus of Gwar and Dee Snider of Twisted Sister, Laura definitely has stories to tell. Steve Johnson of Icon vs. Icon recently sat down with Laura to discuss her beginnings in the entertainment industry, her influences, her love of the horror genre, and, of course, all things “Holliston.”

Where did you grow up and when did you realize you wanted to pursue a career in the entertainment industry?

Originally I was born in Bogota, Columbia. I was there until I was 8. Then my mom’s job brought us to Rochester, Minnesota. So I grew up in the mid-west. The same kind of weather we are having right now, which is awesome. So yeah, I was pretty much a mid-west kid. My parents moved to Florida when I was 16. I knew that I wanted to move to either New York or L.A. to pursue acting. I was always pushing my parents to do that. I thought I could graduate early in Florida, so I did that. Then I got a full-time job and saved up a few thousand dollars. Then I moved out here when I was almost 18. It all sort of went from there.

Laura Catalina Ortiz

What influences helped shape you, the actress we know today?

Oh my goodness! Definitely everyone I’ve worked with helped me grow. Definitely the horror world. That has affected my career in a really positive way. The first thing I ever shot was “The Hills Have Eyes.” I still keep in touch with almost everyone from that movie. From that kind of people … that’s how I met Adam Green from the show that I am doing now. Joe Lynch. James Gunn. Pretty much anyone in horror. They have become such good friends outside of work. They have definitely shaped who I am. I’m really lucky to have done a little bit of everything. Voice-over, comedy, commercials, and movies. My constants have always been the horror crowd, which I’m really happy with.

Speaking of horror films, do you have a favorite?

Oh my goodness! You know what? I’m a huge fan of the Stephen King TV movie “It.”

Yeah! It’s awesome!

I saw it when I was really little. I remember watching it on TV. I wasn’t very old when I first saw it. That’s the one movie that always gets me that I thoroughly enjoy horror-wise. I mean I enjoy a lot of them, but that one holds a special place in my heart.

You mentioned your work on motion pictures and television series. Is there a format you prefer?

A part of me likes movies a little bit more, but I don’t know if I’ve had a project that I haven’t had a great time on. They’re all so different. It’s great. I always leave with a new family from every show and project I’ve done, so I can’t say I prefer one over the other.

'Holliston'

What can you tell us about Adam Green’s upcoming television series “Holliston” and your character Laura?

It’s a sitcom. It’s a comedy with a little bit of horror elements, which is why it’s on Fearnet. I’m nervous because Adam Green is sitting right behind me! [laughs] It’s about two guys that live on the east coast in the small town of Holliston. They are desperate to get out of town and make it. They just want to be horror movie filmmakers. It’s about that time in your life when it seems like everything should be going right, but it’s not. It has a lot of genre things in it, but it also has a lot of heart. I was talking about it yesterday, it’s a boys show and a girls show for so many different reasons. There’s so much heart and sensitivity. There’s blood and guts for the boys. There’s also blood and guts for girls. It’s got heart, sensitivity, romance and friendship.

Did you have any input into your character or was it laid out for you in the script?

Adam does such a really great job. We’ve all been really good friends for a while now. He wrote the characters specifically for us. At least for me, she definitely is a lot of who I was. It was definitely all his writing. We rehearsed so much that when we got there he really trusted us with the choices that we made. So we got to play around. A lot of ourselves and our own personalities are in our characters. I’ve said before that a lot of people think we are playing lesser versions of ourselves, but in my case I think I’m playing a better version of myself because I paint on the show. [laughs]

What was the biggest challenge in bringing the character from script to screen?

I just wanted to make the writer and director proud and those around me proud. That in itself is a challenge. To try and live up to them. The rehearsals really helped a lot. The fact that Adam was so good at writing. It was challenging in that we didn’t have that much time. We didn’t have a lot of things, but we made it work. Adam and Joe have been so great. It didn’t really feel like work. It felt like playing with friends. [laughs]

Adam not only directs the show, but acts in it as well. Was it difficult to adjust to Adam the director and Adam the actor?

No it wasn’t. He did everything. He was the director, the producer, actor. He was so easy. He trusted us so much. His crew … he uses the same crew for everything. It’s like a family. Everyone there from the camera crew to the actors were having such a good time. We have all at some point or another have worked together.

Laura Catalina Ortiz

Dee Snider and Oderus Urungus of GWAR are on the show. Tell us a little about what it was like working alongside those guys.

They were so much fun. Oderus is really nice and so sweet. He didn’t have very much time to get through all of his stuff during the show, but he was so professional. His costume smelled kind of bad. [laughs] When he was done shooting … He’s this big rock and roll guy. I was waiting for this big rock and roll exit. Like something dramatic. He left us the sweetest drawing saying thank you and what a great time he had. [laughs]

That’s funny.

Yeah! I was waiting for something very dramatic, but that drawing was so sweet. It was a big thank you from Oderus to all of us.

I wouldn’t expect that. It seems kind of out of place. I would expect something totally different!

Yeah!

I understand you filmed six episodes of the show. Can we expect more episodes in the future?

We sure hope so! I’m being optimistic, but I don’t see this not keeping on going. If I could do this for 10 years with these people I would feel very happy and fulfilled.

You guys are currently on the road promoting the show. What has that experience been like for you and what type of response are you getting?

It has been so amazing! It’s awesome! We came in Tuesday and we had a screening that day. Our flight kept getting delayed. We were supposed to get here with enough time to get off the plane and get to the screening. We ended up being two hours late to the screening because of the flight getting delayed and cancelled. So many things happened. People stayed. We played it for this crowd that had been waiting for a few hours. They loved it! They laughed! Really, the most special part of it all was yesterday we screened it in Holliston. We weren’t sure who was going to come. We didn’t know what to expect, but we had standing room only that night. We got a standing ovation. We played the pilot episode and episode three. We’ve watched the show and there are parts that we think are so funny, but we don’t know if they’re funny because we are friends and we have the same sense of humor. Hearing these people laugh at things that we didn’t know were funny or things that we were so hard on. People genuinely enjoyed it. Getting to talk to people afterwards … it’s been such a blast and such a blessing. It couldn’t be more amazing. I’m also with my best friends and travelling with them!

'Holliston' Premieres April 3rd On FearNet!

I imagine this tour has attracted some interesting people. Have you guys had any strange encounters with fans?

We haven’t had any strange interactions that I can think of. There have been so many different age groups. We try to ask that a more adult crowd come to the screenings because even though it is cartoonish, there is a little bit of violence in the show. Yesterday we had people probably anywhere from I would guess 15 years old to 80-year-olds and what not. Everyone definitely came and talked to us. We’ve been getting such a great response in such a huge age range of people. It’s really flattering and it really makes you know that you do have something special, which I think we do.

Where and when can people catch up with you guys on the road?

We go back to L.A. today and then we have an event in Anaheim at Wondercon. Booth 350 I believe. We have a signing in Chicago the week after that. We will be at Comic Con and I don’t know where else yet.

Your career has been very diverse already. Is there a genre or role you haven’t tackled yet that you would like to take a stab at in the future?

I don’t know. I’ve been really lucky in my career. I’ve been able to do everything from comedy, to drama, to horror. Getting a taste of it all, I don’t really have a favorite because they have all been so different, so right, and so wonderful to work on. I guess in the future I would like to be working with people I love on quality projects, whatever that may be.

Do you have any other film projects we should be on the look out for?

Not right now! I did “Chillerama” with Adam and Joe. That came out a few months ago. I have “Holliston” and that’s about it right now!

Laura Catalina Ortiz as "Laura"

What do you consider the defining moment of your career so far?

Oh my god! It’s so hard because I’ve done so many different things. I did “The Hills Have Eyes,” which is where I met a lot of the people I’ve ended up working with. I also did a T-Mobile commercial when I first came out here that kind of put me on the map and led to a bunch of things. That commercial alone gave me a career in voice over. I would say it’s somewhere between “The Hills Have Eyes” and the T-Mobile commercial. Those two have opened so many different doors for me and have defined who and what kind of work I have done to this day.

What is the best piece of advice someone has given you along the way in your career?

Probably that auditions and work will always be there, but your family should come first.

That’s solid advice!

Oh yeah! [laughs]

Is that the advice you would give to someone who would like to get involved with the entertainment industry?

Yeah! I would say that there is no one way to go about this so that you make it. Work hard and don’t get caught up in the networking. People think that they have to go out and do all of these things. That helps a little bit. Be serious about it. Take classes. Nothing lasts without hard work. Work hard, always put your family first, and something will happen.

Do you have any last words for your fans?

Yes! Watch “Holliston” April 3rd! Call your cable network provider to make sure you get it!

Thanks for your time and have a good day!

Thank you so much!

Twisted Sister’s A.J. Pero Announced As National Spokesperson For Fallen Blue

Twisted Sister’s A.J. Pero Announced As National Spokesperson For Fallen Blue

Fallen Blue was created as a means to provide support, both emotional and financial, for the families of police officers who are killed outside the line of duty. It is with great pride that we are honored to announce that A.J. Pero has become our National Spokesperson. Mr. Pero has spent his life entertaining rock music fans as the drummer for Twisted Sister. He has also dedicated his life to helping others less fortunate with his charity work.

“My name is A.J. Pero and I play drums for the Heavy Metal Band, TWISTED SISTER. I have been asked by John and Rachael from Fallen Blue to be a part of the Brotherhood. I jumped at the opportunity. I have become the National Spokesperson for this non-profit organization called Fallen Blue. I am honored to be a part of this family, this vital organization. I will help out 150%, so we can achieve our goals. Our goals are to help the families of these brave men and women who die outside the line of duty. When a police officer is killed outside the line of duty – whether accidentally or by their own hand due to job related stress – they don’t receive the benefits. Some families can’t even afford to have a funeral, never mind future bills. I’ve experienced that years ago when a friend on the job, stressed out and emotionally fried, shot himself. Our neighborhood stood together to help the wife and children. We had benefits and cookouts to raise money, but it just wasn’t enough. This organization can and will become vital nationwide if we all recognize this is a reality and pull together our resources for all Law Enforcement Officers. Even though there are many different branches, we are all the same underneath and need to be treated as such. We would also like to eventually erect a physical Memorial where we can go and honor those killed outside the line of duty.”

Please join us in welcoming A.J. Pero to our cause, and check out http://fallenblue.org to keep up with our latest efforts to help serve those who protect us.

Twisted Sister’s Dee Snider Launches Two New Websites

Twisted Sister’s Dee Snider Launches Two New Websites

Dee Snider

Legendary Twisted Sister frontman Dee Snider has issued the following update:

“Fans of (my) early 2000’s morning talk radio show in Hartford, CT and Richmond, VA and of (my) Philadelphia night time radio show in 2005 and those who have been curious about (my) talk radio years will be please to discover DeeSniderRadio.com.

I was going through a closet in my studio and discovered literally hundreds of hours of recordings from my DSR morning show and an entire external hard drive filled with bits from by Philly night time show. So many fans have expressed to me how much they miss my shows, that I decided to create a free site for their listening pleasure.

DeeSniderRadio.com is extremely user friendly. You can either listen online – with no buffering issues whatsoever, or you can download shows as podcasts. Every week there are new shows posted. Whether you’re a Dee Snider Radio peep or just want to hear some great talk radio, be sure to check out DeeSniderRadio.com.

TakeBackTheHorns.com is a fun, yet serious site dedicated to the reclamation of “the metal horns”. Having noticed the rampant overuse and abuse of the horns by non-metalheads, (I have) decided to take it upon (myself) to rally the troops and shine a powerful light on this growing injustice.

TakeBackTheHorns.com not only explains the origin of the metal horns, but defines their proper use, shows “bad examples”, explaining in detail what’s wrong with each of them and there’s a killer “Metal Or Not” photo rating section where you can vote on the “metalness” of posted pictures and/or post your own to be rated.

Very addicting. True metalheads will love this fun, yet inspired site. Join (me) in (my) fight to Take Back The Horns.”
