We take a close look at which rock artists are siding with President Obama, and who’s pulling for Mitt Romney. If it were up to bands, Obama would win in a landslide. Take a peek and see which way your favorites lean politically.
Dee Snider may have endorsed Arnold Schwarzenegger’s candidacy when he ran for Governor of California, but he hasn’t given Republicans carte blanche to use his music.
Rock fans may have approached Rock Of Ages with some cynicism this weekend, due to the casting of Tom Cruise in the lead role of fictional rock legend Stacee Jaxx. (And perhaps many fans didn’t approach the film – it opened in third place with just above a $15 million gross.)
When Twisted Sister frontman Dee Snider was performing as club owner Dennis Dupree in Broadway’s Rock of Ages, word came through that the hit musical would soon be developed into a blockbuster movie. Snider’s manager was giddy over the prospect of Dee’s big screen casting – a role that eventually went to Alec Baldwin – but Dee had no expectations, thinking instead that the film would cast big names. And he was exactly right.
For fans of Twisted Sister frontman Dee Snider, his elimination from Celebrity Apprentice on April 1st seemed like an April Fool’s Joke, or at least a little premature. But Snider isn’t too broken up over his elimination from the reality TV competition, which airs its season finale this Sunday at 9PM on NBC.
By the time Snider released his album of showtunes last week, his confidence was high and Broadway was old hat, thanks to newfound friends Patti LuPone and Bebe Neuwirth.
Let’s take a look at this week’s albums, reissues and other musical goodies from classic artists making musical waves yet again.
