While Dee Snider may most famously be known as the singer of Twisted Sister, the guy has also been known to work in various other art forms.
Along with having worked in acting, Snider has also had a successful writing career. The Twisted Sister singer has a couple of books published already, and he has a new book on the way.
During a recent conversation with Loudwire, Snider is asked about a new movie he is directing and what else he has going on in his artistic/professional life. In answering this question, Snider opens up about his new fiction book, providing a little bit of insight into what it is about. Per Snider:
“Expect the unexpected from Dee Snider. I’m always creating and it’s not always what you expect. The fiction novel is a ’70s period piece coming of age story, but it’s all about toxic masculinity and growing up in a very toxic environment and how it affects people.
“I’m involved with two animated kids shows [laughs]. I have to laugh because if you had told me 40 years ago that one day I’m going to be making animated kids’ shows, I would’ve literally had a fist fight with you.
“There’s so many things I’ve done. Broadway, writing a song for Celine Dion… I was the hothead as a kid and now these things I’ve done, I go, ‘Oh my God, what does that 20-something think of me now?'”
Snider also mentions how Twisted Sister is reuniting for a special show:
“[Also, next year] Twisted Sister are planning on reuniting, not just to accept the induction, but to perform a few songs for the first time since 2016. I’ve always said that for a special event or occasion or charity or something, Twisted Sister would play together again.
“Certainly not a two-hour set, but we’re going do a few songs that night. I’m really looking forward to being with the guys — we’re friends, but playing with the them is going to be great.”
