A brand new interview with BraveWords.com’s Mitch Lafon about Snider’s current activities can be read here.
Filled with entertaining anecdotes and candid confessions, Shut Up And Give Me The Mic takes you through the good times and bad with a heavy metal star who worked as hard as he played, and who did it all for his wife, four kids, and millions of fans. As lead singer and songwriter of Twisted Sister, Dee Snider became the poster boy for heavy metal, hair bands, and the wild side of rock. Now, in his twisted new memoir, he reveals the real stories behind the crazy makeup, the big hair, and badass hits like ‘We’re Not Gonna Take It’ and ‘I Wanna Rock’.
