Dee Snider

(born David Daniel Snider, on March 15, 1955 in Massapequa,
New York, USA) is the heavily made-up frontman for the U.S. band Twisted Sister.

As a child he sang in a church choir, and several school choruses (Snider's father is Jewish, but "left the faith when he was 15" according to Snider, quoted in The New York Times. His mother is Catholic. Both sets of families opposed his parents' marriage. His parents raised Snider and his siblings as Episcopalian Christians as a strange compromise).

He developed a habit of dressing differently from his peers, and a strong desire to become a singer in a makeup band. In 1975 Snider changed several rock bands, and in early 1976 he joined the recently formed Twisted Sister.
