Dee Snider's is gonna take it ... to Broadway



Dee Snider in Rock of Ages

How's this for some of life's twisted irony: The Broadway musical Rock of Ages has recruited Twisted Sister frontman Dee Snider to join the show for an 11-week run beginning Oct. 11. Snider will actually get to perform two of his own songs -- I Wanna Rock and We're Not Gonna Take It -- because they were already part of the show.

Rock of Ages tells the story of two rockers who fall in love and features a night full of '80s classics. A touring version of the musical just began in Chicago (REO Speedwagon was there to perform with them!); it reaches Clearwater's Ruth Eckerd Hall in January.

Are you curious just how many '80s tunes are in the show? Ha. I have the full list!
