Astronomicon is a con is put on by the guys from the band Twiztid. It's only the 2nd year for the con, but it's become a huge success. Once again this year, the place was packed! Madrox and Monoxide asked me if I'd host a Q&A panel with the one and only, Dee Snider. They didn't have to twist my arm to do that! What you're about to hear is the interview in front of a live audience. As always, Dee was GREAT to talk with. We covered lots of topics....
*The reaction to his latest album "For The Love Of Metal"
*Working with Jamie Jasta and what he did for Dee.
*The music scene in the 90's
*The documentary "We Are Twisted F#^@ing Sister"
*Detroit music that has played a role with him
*Meeting his RNR heroes
*His days fighting the PMRC
*How his fight against the PMRC paralleled Lars' fight against Napster
*Playing Captain Howdy in "Strangeland"
*A time in the early 90's when he was dead broke
*His charitable work and which WWE superstar inspired him to do more
* "The Magic of Christmas Day" song he wrote, which a huge pop star recorded
