Twisted Sister’s Dee Snider Is Writing a Novel
Former Twisted Sister singer Dee Snider is a man of many talents. Beyond music, the entertainer has dabbled in acting, screenwriting and he even once hosted a morning radio show. Now, Snider is setting his sights on something akin to the Great American Novel, judging by a recent tweet.
The Twisted Singer icon previously put pen to paper in telling tomes such as Shut Up and Give Me the Mic (2012), Dee Snider's Teenage Survival Guide (1987) and the upcoming We're Not Gonna Take It: A Children's Picture Book. But now, the musician-cum-writer is composing a novel.
"I know I've been kind of quiet lately," Snider shared Tuesday (Dec. 3). "Doing a lot of writing. Just finished 1st pass at my novel. Sent out to 'trusted readers' awaiting notes. Then comes 2nd, hopefully final draft. Shop to publishers after that. Still a ways before you get to read it, but this is the process."
Of course, Twisted Sister called it quits back in 2016, but that doesn't mean Snider stopped performing live altogether. Still, in a video update this September, the glam metal veteran revealed he was "taking a break from concert performing for a while" to focus on various other projects.
Earlier this year, Snider called out the NFL's hypocrisy regarding the Super Bowl halftime show. Before that, he popped up on Motorhead guitarist Phil Campbell's solo single "These Old Boots." In 2018, Snider sat down with Loudwire to play a round of Wikipedia: Fact or Fiction?
