episode 167: Dee Snider (Twisted Sister)

Doc welcomes Twisted Sister frontman, Dee Snider, to the show and they talk about Twisted Sister's early days as a blue-collar cover band on Long Island, how toiling as a bar band shaped his work ethic as a performer, the tension between Dee and Jay Jay French, what it felt like to finally achieve success, why he went broke during the 90s, how adversity led to him pursuing multiple careers in radio, acting, and writing, the legacy of his testimony in Congress speaking against The PMRC and censorship, and what it's been like developing his new heavier metal solo career with Jamey Jasta of Hatebreed.

This episode features the songs "Hiding in the Shadows" by Defy The Tyrants and "Time To Choose" by Dee Snider.
