No Billboard employees were harmed in the making of this interview.
"In the '80s, if you had said I would've done a Christmas album with TWISTED SISTER (which he did in 2006), I would've punched you in the face. If you said I'd be doing a Broadway record, I'd have punched you in the face," DEE SNIDER confessed recently in an interview at the P.C. Richard & Son Theater in New York. Snider was performing songs from his new album, Dee Does Broadway, as part of Clear Channel Media and Entertainment's iHeartRadio platform.
"I would've punched you in the face pretty much for anything."
A polite and well-behaved Snider explained how, despite his heavy metal persona, growing up in a home where showtunes were family favorites and his 2010 turn on Broadway in Rock of Ages - now a Tom Cruise box office blockbuster - led to his recording of "Broadway." The set features such guests as Clay Aiken, Cyndi Lauper and son Jesse Blaze Snider. It launched at #33 on Billboard's Heatseekers Albums chart last month.
