I met Jesse Blaze Snider over ten years ago through a funny story. I had just interviewed Marvel big cheese, Joe Quesada, about something for The Pulse, and he mentioned at one of his earlier jobs a big time rock and roll star slammed the door in his face, and broke his nose. A day later, I got a telephone call from Dee Snider of Twisted Sister taking ownership for busting Quesada's schnoz. We talked for a while and he told me all about his son, a major comic book fan, Jesse Blaze Snider. It wasn't long before Jesse was writing for me at The Pulse.
I watched Jesse grow from a gifted writer to talented musician to wonderful dad. With his newest CD, 16, available now, I thought it would be the perfect time to catch up with my talented friend to talk about his colorful life in and out of music.

Since 've been in the business, I’ve been writing about a sequel to Dee Snider’s Strangeland. For those history buffs out there, Strangeland 2 was greenlit back in 1997 before the first one came out. A script was written, and the powers-that-be were in the earliest stages of pre-production when the production company got indicted by the federal government.
