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.
Dee celebrates 20 years and 1,000 shows with his national radio show, "The House Of Hair," syndicated through Sun Broadcast Group. Dee’s special 1,000th episode will air this Saturday, February 11th. To celebrate, "The House Of Hair With Dee Snider," is giving one lucky winner a GIBSON guitar, complete with amp and accessories. Listeners must tune-in and Shamaz to enter.
