More about Dee:
While perhaps best known as the lead singer of 80's sensation, Twisted Sister, there is so much more to Dee Snider. His recent starring role on Broadway in the hit musical Rock Of Ages generated national TV appearances on The Today Show, CNNs Joy Behar Show and a legendary spot on The Jimmy Fallon Show where Dee guested with The Spooks and Jimmy on Dees self penned hit, I Wanna Rock.  The Broadway run inspired him to make a brand new record for Razor & Tie featuring some of Broadway's greatest songs in his own indomitable style.  "Dee Does Broadway" is slated for an early 2012 release.  A big year for Dee is assured. His autobiography, Shut Up and Give Me The Mic, will be released in early 2012 from Gallery Books/Simon & Schuster, right before Warner Pictures releases the Tom Cruise, Alec Baldwin, Catherine Zeta Jones and Russell Brand blockbuster film version of Rock Of Ages. The movie features two of Dee's biggest hits. He has also starred in several reality TV shows including Gone Country with John Rich, MTVs Rock The Cradle with his son Jesse and Growing Up Twisted, an A&E series featuring the entire Snider family and their Long Island lifestyle. He is also a frequent host on MTV Networks and his own nationally syndicated radio show House Of Hair is heard on more than 200 stations in North America, houseofhaironline.com. His career as a voiceover artist has resulted in Dee being heard in many radio and TV commercials, documentaries and a year long stint as the introductory voice on MSNBC. Dee wrote, produced and starred in Dee Sniders StrangeLand. This horror flick immediately became a classic of the genre, and StrangeLand 2 is currently in development. With the success of StrangeLand, Dee was tapped to host a weekly radio show on all things horror, Fangoria Radio. 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 congressional record labeling hearings of the mid 1980's.  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 Dees Twisted Sister legendary anthem We're Not Gonna Take It.

Arnold Schwarzenegger wasn't going to take it either.  The California Governator enlisted Dee to help rally his political troops all the way to the Governor's mansion in California.  At his last political rally in Sacramento, Schwarzenegger asked Dee to lead the way in singing We're Not Gonna Take It.   California listened and the Terminator was elected Governor.  Not to be outdone, the Mexican Government recruited Dee as well, using the anthem in a TV campaign to gain attention on their bid to set the country on a fiscal and judicial road to recovery.
