Twisted Sister Frontman and ‘Strangeland’ Star Dee Snider to Appear at Rock & Shock

From performing live around the world with Twisted Sister to writing and starring in the 1998 horror classic Strangeland, musician, radio personality and actor Dee Snider truly embodies the words “rock” and “shock,” which is why it is with great pleasure that we announce Dee Snider will be joining his Holliston cast mates Adam Green, Cori English and Laura Ortiz at Rock & Shock 2013!
After topping the charts with hits like “We’re Not Gonna Take It” and “I Wanna Rock,” Dee Snider took to the big screen – writing, producing and starring in the horror classic Strangeland. In 2001, he voiced characters in both the videogame Jak and Daxter: The Precursor Legacy and Van Helsing’s Curse, a live horror musical. Snider then became a fixture on the then-burgeoning reality TV market, appearing on Gone Country, Kitchen Nightmares, Dead Art, House of Hair, Celebrity Apprentice and eventually his own reality series Growing Up Twisted.
Since 2012, Snider has appeared on FEARNet’s very first original series Holliston, which chronicles”two down and out aspiring filmmakers struggle with life, career, and the opposite sex as they attempt to make it out of the small New England town they are trapped in and into the big time.” Snider plays the outlandish boss of the show’s main characters. Snider will be meeting fans and signing autographs on Friday, October 18 and Saturday, October 19, 2013 at the DCU Center in Worcester, MA.
