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.
In 2016, Twisted Sister performed what the band said were its final shows. Without wasting any time, frontman Dee Snider released We Are the Ones, a solo album that embraces his hard rock roots, while also celebrating his affinity for punk rock and sprinkling in some contemporary sounds. Along the way he couldn't resist rethinking two old classics, putting his own spin on Nine Inch Nails' "Head Like a Hole" and rearranging his own "We're Not Gonna Take it" as an acoustic ballad.
We talked with Snider late last year about moving on from his iconic band, how his nutritionist and Debbie Gibson helped out with his new record, and how he realized he'd been screwing up the lyrics of one of his biggest hits.
