Snider Says

As a child, David sang in the church choir.

By the eighth grade, he was in a Black Sabbath cover band.

In the mid-seventies David joined a New York-based quintet that toiled in relative obscurity until hitting pay dirt in 1984 with an album titled "Stay Hungry". Millions of record sales later, David becomes personal friends with Ozzy, Gene Simmons and professional wrestler Mick Foley, among others. He even wrote a song entitled "The Magic of Christmas Day (God Bless Us Everyone)" which Celine Dion recorded for her album "These Are Special Times".

Eventually, this opinionated and oft- quoted performer would be ranked #83 in the Hit Parader's Top 100 Metal Vocalist of All Time.

David Daniel "Dee" Snider.

Married since 1981 to his wife Suzette, and a father of four, Dee Snider can be found these days on the Sirius Satellite Radio channel as well as where he is never shy about sharing his thoughts on a wide variety of subjects.

And just to wrap up the week, here is one of Dee Snider's favorite rock and roll "war stories"

"I went for an outrageous form of expressing myself. It seemed to be a way that I could make my name and show that I was somebody"
