Back in the mid 1980s, Dee Snider was one of the most frightening frontmen in rock. With his face painted, and blessed with an amazing head of curly, blonde hair, he and Twisted Sister rocked up the charts with anthems like I Wanna Rock and We’re Not Gonna Take It.
With Twisted Sister still a going concern (the group just completed a European tour), the 60-year old Snider (who looks at least a decade younger) has also branched out on his own, over the years starring in his own reality show, hosting various shows, appearing on The Celebrity Apprentice and so much more.
This past Wednesday, Dee visited Canada Talks 167 to appear with Ward & Al, chatting about his imminent move to Toronto, where he’ll be staging his Twisted Christmas play later this year. Take a listen to a highlight below.
