Biography

Dee Does Broadway is not metal…but it rocks!

The original idea started back in 2009 with an exchange of phone messages between Alice Cooper and me. I don’t know who the first was, but one of us sang our message to a Broadway show tune and the other responded with his answer in show tune form. When Alice and I finally did speak—knowing both of our love for ... Read more in Amazon's Dee Snider Store

Editorial Reviews

DEE SNIDER, the unmistakable front-man of the rock band Twisted Sister, will release his new studio album DEE DOES BROADWAY on May 8th on Razor & Tie. The album features Dee's powerful voice and theatrical persona as he exudes his rock 'n' roll take on several Broadway classics. Dee Does Broadway was spawned from a number of voicemails exchanged featuring "Broadway Tunes" sung as messages between Dee Snider and Alice Cooper in 2009 and Dee's 2010 Broadway run in the Broadway rock musical Rock of Ages. The album one-plus years in the making enlisted producers Bob Kulick and Brett Chassen (whom Dee worked with on the metalized Frank Sinatra tribute called Sin-atra) and also features the incredible orchestrations and playing by the renowned composer/arranger Doug Katsaros and the bass guitar playing of one of rock's prolific players, the legendary Rudy Sarzo.

Truthfully, I'm not a huge fan of Dee Snider and haven't given him much thought since the heyday of Twisted Sister. Don't get me wrong, I like him fine. He seems extremely personable and well spoken, I just wasn't waiting expectantly for his next music project. When I heard he was going to cover some Broadway standards, I literally cringed. But Snider is an astute businessman. To do this right, he had to make the songs his own. And the result, alternating lush orchestrations with high octane metal, is an experiment that works just fine! Of course, he is ably assisted on the best numbers by high profile talent such as Patti LuPone, Bebe Neuwirth, Cyndi Lauper, and Clay Aiken.

"Dee Does Broadway" succeeds best on the numbers that are either duets or veer completely away from the original interpretations. My favorites:

Whatever Lola Wants: This duet with Bebe Neuwirth works because it is so dramatic. The great Neuwirth (always a delight) sounds downright possessed and her verbal sparring with Snider is truly memorable. This is so over the top, it is musical nirvana.

Tonight/Somewhere: The presence of Patti LuPone was the album's nicest surprise for me. As she attempts to out-diva Snider on these "West Side Story" classics--once again, it's like a cage match of belting bravado. My favorite piece on the CD, I only wished there was more of Somewhere (which only gets about four bars).

Luck Be A Lady: Trying not to sound repetitive, the "Guys and Dolls" standard is also enhanced by over-the-top vocalizing--this time by none other than Clay Aiken. Aiken and Snider serve this one up as if the fate of the world depends on it, and it is easily the most intense version of the song I've ever heard.

5.0 out of 5 stars Unusual CD, I smiled the whole time! January 29, 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
While stuck in traffic, I listened to this CD from beginning to end, and smiled the whole time. I've been a fan of Dee's since their first album, and Broadway for a loooong time. This combo works! Not for the old-school theatre fan, this disc combines hard rock with the classical tunes, and includes some interesting duets. (Clay Aiken? Great job!)

Overall, I'd recommed this CD!

4.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Cover Album January 25, 2014
Format:Audio CD
I have to thank Pandora for discovering this jewel for me. Dee Snider has created a wonderful Rock inspired Broadway album. A number of great co stars duet with him. I hope he considers a Vol. 2.

5.0 out of 5 stars Only Dee Could Do This January 7, 2013
Format:Audio CD
Let's face it, "Dee Does Broadway" is something that could have gone terribly wrong. But then again, it's the brainchild of two maniacs... Dee Snyder and Alice Cooper. I was intrigued immediately.

Now a die-hard black metal fan, and a metal head by nature, it began as a kid with the likes of Dee and Alice. Then, to pick up chicks, I got involved with choir/show choir in high school... which introduced me to Broadway and classical choral. Finally, during my sophomore year of college, there was a brief but huge resurgence of swing/big-band, during which I learned to sing all of Sinatra (also to get chicks).

So there I was, 12 years out of college with a musical identity crisis, and no chick. I needed something new... something life-changing... and the answer came to me... I needed something to marry Broadway musicals with 80's metal. This has arrived!

First listen-through was more funny than anything. There's a period of adjustment needed to accept Broadway songs in a metal format, and I expected the transition to be awkward. However, by the second listen, it felt "ok" to raise my devil horns, bang my head, and scream "LIFE IS A CABARET, OLD CHUM!!!". By the third listen I whipped out air-instruments, the ultimate test of my metal album approval.

The album is mixed very well. Balanced, loud, clear and deep. The heaviest song, appropriately, is "The Ballad of Sweeney Todd". If ever there was a Broadway song suited for metal conversion, it would be one about a demon barber who kills people, drops then down a shoot, and makes pies from their skin. A little cannibalism goes a long way in good music. Summoning inspiration from a gore metal, I think, Dee's band sounds tuned down, hovering above a grinding double bass with rather intricate changes...

5.0 out of 5 stars Q: What do Dee Snider and Pat Boone have in common? September 6, 2012
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
A: They both made unusual albums after having conversations with Alice Cooper.

Pat Boone's "In A Metal Mood," where he performed hard rock songs in his own particular style, is now legendary. "Dee Does Broadway" is the same sort of album; Dee Snider went outside his comfort zone, took a look at Broadway, and demonstrated that quality music works pretty well however it gets rendered. His heavy metal versions of Broadway classics are just plain addictive.

One particular favorite is his performance of "Big Spender," a duet with Cyndi Lauper. If you're a comics fan, I defy you to listen to this track and not hear it as a duet between the Joker and Harley Quinn. Mad Love, indeed...
