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.

Format:Audio CD
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 Creative and Dee-lightfully executed performances May 18, 2012
Format:Audio CD
Who knew? I was expecting the usual boring renditions of Broadway classics by a middle-aged rocker in an unimaginative style. This was terrific. I've spent years performing and studying Broadway music. This is in a class of its own. It's imaginative, fresh, sexy, gutteral and even funny. The orchestrations and arrangements are fabulous, beyond clever. The best 2 numbers are "Luck be a Lady" with Clay Aiken who kept up with Dee in racousness. Patti Lupone joined in a version of "Tonight" which was done in a greatly lowered key to allow for a full out belt. So long as you don't expect original keys and can accept some dropping of octaves, this is an epic version of some rather overdone Broadway hits. Dee gives these songs a new, non-traditional life. "Mack the Knife" needed Dee's inventive reproduction. Try this with an open mind. I'm going on a long trip and will play this in the car. You rock, Dee. Gutsy guy.

4.0 out of 5 stars This is actually great fun May 8, 2012
Format:Audio CD
I think the album starts off slowly, and sounds a little too much like Twisted Sister. Or maybe it took me a little long to get into the mindset. Whatever it is, once you hit Big Spender with Cyndi Lauper, the album hits its groove and doesn't look back. The actual Broadway stars add considerably to the numbers they're on, but Dee is always front and center, and totally works with the music. Its almost a shame Mr Snyder doesn't get a turn in a revival of South Pacific. In a sense this is sort of the anti-Glee, letting music that was really designed to rock out in its day, rock out again, rather than nerdifying music that was cool in its day like Glee.

5.0 out of 5 stars Broadway with a Twist! May 15, 2012
Format:Audio CD
This CD was EXACTLY what I wanted it to be.

GREAT renditions of Broadway music with a nice twist (pun intended). Dee had a very skilled hand at making fabulous rock out of fabulous songs. If you love rock and Broadway, but have had enough of today's rock-Broadway and love, this will take you back to your roots and is riotous fun!

Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Dee Snider had me when he took on Tipper Gore (it was about labels, then retail censorship), then I was walking past a Christmas music display at Best Buy some years ago and snatched the Twisted Sister Christmas CD--and clinched it: Dee Snider is a genius.

Great rocking backing on this, straight-ahead, completely reworked the songs I knew, just a great, great idea. Cyndi Lauper puts a great spin on "Big Spender" with a great decadent trashy street accent. "Mack the Knife" opens with a tip of the hat (or toupe'?) to Bobby Darin's version, then rips into a rocker half-way through. Anyone that can rock up Fats Waller, oh, wow, and really make it work proves that pre-War jazz is still contemporary: it was party music in the '20s and '30s; the music's attitude hasn't changed, just the technology to record it. Clay Aiken's stock goes way up if he can plant his tongue firmly in cheek and take a chance like this, playing off Sinatra and actually holding his own alternating with Dee--I just didn't think it possible in light of Aiken's two easy crooning covers albums which play schmaltz SOOOOOOOOO safe and kitschy that I keep A THOUSAND DIFFERENT WAYS ('80s MOR-A/C schmaltz) and TRIED & TRUE (the '60s obvious budget album) racked next to Barry Manilow and Neil Diamond. But the song that really stands out, to my Iran U.S.A. ears, is "There is Nothin' Like a Dame." I see Will Swenson listed just under the title (track 10) on the back. Jumped out and just bit me like a snake--HUH? Will Swenson and Kirby Heybourne spoofed a kind of Mormon THIS IS SPINAL TAP vibe on a fairly local (Utah) shot on the incredibly cheap movie --and soundtrack-- SONS OF PROVO. Local theater chain that runs LDS theme comedies (I use the word loosely) banned the movie. Will Swenson? Mormon cinema? Dee Snider/Twisted Sister???

Thoroughly recommended. It's not just a showtunes album. Great, great idea!
