Dee Snider tried to get his solo career going as far back as the late '80s, but his record company pressured him to release 1987's 'Love is for Suckers' under the Twisted Sister banner. A frustrated Snider then formed Desperado with Bernie Torme in 1988, releasing 'Bloodied But Unbowed.' He followed that with two albums in the 1990s as part of Widowmaker. But Snider always circled back around to his main band. Dee Snider's SMFs also occasionally featuring late Twisted Sister drummer A.J. Pero. Perhaps Snider's biggest solo splash came in 1998, when his song "The Magic of Christmas Day (God Bless Us Everyone)" was recorded by Celine Dion. He's been involved with radio broadcasting for years, and later delved into Broadway songs.
