    Dee Went to Washington to Fight for Free Speech

Dee Coming to Falls Comic Con

One of heavy metal’s most recognizable frontmen is headed for the Niagara Falls Comic Con next year.

Dee Snider, the towering singer for Twisted Sister, will appear for all three days June 1 to 3 at the Scotiabank Convention Centre.

It makes the second straight year Comic Con will have a classic rock presence, following Ramones drummer Marky Ramone at this year’s event.

Twisted Sister exploded in 1984 with its third album, Stay Hungry. The videos for cheeky singles We’re Not Gonna Take It and I Wanna Rock became MTV favourites as the album sold 3 million copies.

“A lot of teens in the ’80s could relate to Twisted Sister videos, because they told a coming-of-age story of growing up in a household with a strict father, or being a student in a classroom with a strict teacher,” says Comic Con co-owner Chris Dabrowski. “(The videos) were more of a short film, with a prologue all teens could relate to, so if you grew up in the ’80s, Dee Snider was easily recognizable and relatable.”

But Snider may have made his biggest impact in rock music a year later, when he testified in the U.S. Senate against censorship and a proposed warning system in response to efforts by Tipper Gore and the Parents Music Resource Centre.

In recent years, Snider has appeared on stage in Rock of Ages and had his own reality show on A&E called Growing Up Twisted. He debuted his holiday musical Dee Snider’s Rock and Roll Christmas Tale in Chicago in 2014, bringing it to Toronto the following year.

Hit Parader ranked Snider #83 in its list of the Top 100 Metal Vocalists of All Time.

Snider joins a Comic Con guest list which includes Michael Rooker (The Walking Dead, Guardians of the Galaxy), Dawn Wells (Gilligan’s Island) and wrestling icons Ric Flair and Trish Stratus.

Confirmed artists include Neal Adams, Jim Steranko and Glenn Fabry.

Tickets start at $25, available at www.nfcomiccon.com
