Twisted Sister’s Dee Snider: “Shut Up And Give Me The Mic” Interview

Posted by on May.15, 2012, under Current Shows No Comments

Unlike most rock autobiography “authors”, Dee Snider wrote every word of his new book Shut Up And Give Me The Mic, and in record time—five months.  In his book, Snider is unapologetic about his single mission to become a rock star, and though many thought Twisted Sister was an overnight sensation, the band had worked tirelessly for eight years before finding superstar status.  Snider has a strong voice as a writer, so the book reads like you’re sitting with him as he’s telling his story.  The tales are humorous (a memorable in-store appearance where one fan showed up), cautionary (filing for bankruptcy twice), and inspiring (reinventing himself outside of rock music to great success).  The book also includes many memorable characters, including his wife’s uncle who also happened to be a mob enforcer.

In this interview with Rock Book Show, Snider talks about his early life, how he feels about music censorship, the importance of family, his stint on Celebrity Apprentice, and he reveals who he considers Twisted Sister’s guardian angel.
