    Forever Twisted: Dee Snider Concert Review

    Another dream come true for me.
    I FINALLY saw one of my favorite singers/songwriters/performers ever Friday night.
    And that is Dee Snider of Twisted Sister!
    He still sings great and I’m glad that after being a fan of 19 years that he FINALLY came close enough for me to go see him.
    I’ve actually spoken to him on the phone via a call in show and have communicated with him on Twitter many times, but just never had the chance to see him.
    Nice guy by the way.
    Huge bucket list for me done.
    He sang several Twisted Sister songs, and about half of his latest album We Are The Ones, which I really like.
    He also did a cover of Soundgarden’s Outshined And AC/DC’s Highway To Hell, which sounded great.
    I wasn’t sure I was going to be able to go to this, but I was able to make it work.
    Thank goodness I went.  My cousin Zachary went with me too and he had a blast too.
    I’m proud to say that I’m forever an SMF and Dee Snider fan for life.
    The opening band Killcode put on a solid performance, but of course, I was there for Dee.
    Love you sir!!
