On the way in spring 2015: Rock and Roll Ain’t Dead – Dee Snider Essentials 1983-2015, a new compilation that will feature music from all of Dee’s projects over the years including Twisted Sister, Widowmaker, Desperado, Van Helsing’s Curse and Dee Does Broadway. AND three brand-new songs…his first in over 20 years.
“My writing partner (and inspiration, really) is an amazing blues-rock guitarist named Nick Perri (Silvertide, Shinedown, Perry Farrell, Matt Sorum and more),” says Dee. “I will be dropping the first single, ‘Rock and Roll Ain’t Dead,’ on March 15, 2015 — my 60th birthday — and the album after that (age pun fully intended). There will be a video and a number of select solo shows in the spring and summer of 2015.”
Dee’s new solo band includes:
Nick Perri – lead guitar
Joe Franco (Widowmaker, Van Helsing’s Curse, Twisted Sister, Good Rats) – drums
Dan McCafferty (Dee Snider’s SMFs, Dee Does Broadway) – guitar
Nicolai “Nosferatu” Nifoussi (Automatic 7) – bass
Fear not…Dee is NOT quitting Twisted Sister and plans to do several live dates with them next summer. Keep it tuned to BuzzCut for an upcoming exclusive interview with Dee!
