Dee Snider - Dee Does Broadway
Dee Snider is arguably one of the most charismatic frontmen around; Twisted Sister already tried their hand at Christmas album, now it’s the singers time to tackle Broadway!
In true Broadway style, there’s plenty of booming brass, drama and a star studded line up. Featuring the likes of Cyndi Lauper and Patti Lupone, Snider has pulled out his best theatrics for this CD! Opening with Cabaret his rock infused show tunes instantly put a smile on your face. The swing style of Mack The Knife sounds pretty generic, until the heavy guitars kick in and give it that interesting third dimension. There is Nothin’ Like A Dame has to be the highlight of the album; full of character, it is brilliant and the key changes in Music Of The Night are quite something to behold.
With a Christmas and a Broadway album, what’s next for this twisted frontman? Is there anything he can’t do?!
Guns N’Roses Hall of Fame saga continues…
Twisted Sister frontman Dee Snider has blasted Axl Rose for his decision to boycott Guns N’ Roses induction into the Rock And Roll Hall of Fame.
Speaking on the Black Carpet of the Revolver Golden Gods Awards to Guns N’Roses guitarist Slash, Snider said: “Someone just told me that it’s official Axl is not gonna sing at the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame… and I said, it’s crap. I said, if he can’t put this stuff aside for an event like that, for a recognition like that, to do the cool thing, and just in respect of what you guys have done, I think it’s totally screwed up.” Slash refused to comment on Rose’s appearance but he did confirm he would be in attendance.
Speaking on his column for Seattle Weekly, bassist Duff McKagan was ever the diplomat and wrote, “My band, Gnr, will be inducted into the so-fancy Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. And on that night, I will honour not myself or the chicken dinner they will most surely provide, but I will be honouring all those people who call themselves the fans of our group called Guns N’ Roses.” He went on the add, “In the end, it’s not about who does or doesn’t show up from the original band, and I back whatever reason this guy or that has for not coming. It’s all good. The songs are the important bit here… and the message they most certainly still must carry.”
We couldn’t agree more Duff….
