Watch Twisted Sister’s Dee Snider Sing Nazareth’s “Love Hurts” In New “Rock Me Amadeus” Video

Twisted Sister’s Dee Snider can be seen singing Nazareth’s “Love Hurts” in a new music video from the Broadway show “Rock Me Amadeus.” The clip combines the aforementioned track with Alanis Morissette’s “Uninvited,” which was sung by Chloe Lowery and Kia Warren, and the classical strings of Tchaikovsky’s “Romeo And Juliet” theme. “Rock Me Amadeus” co-producer Tony Bruno commented:

“As in ‘Romeo And Juliet’, there’s always more to love than the attraction. It’s complicated, frustrating and painful at times. Some endure and some don’t. This mashup was born out of that feeling which we have all experienced at one time or another.”

Listen To Dee Snider And Lzzy Hale’s New Version Of “The Magic Of Christmas Day”

Twisted Sister’s Dee Snider has joined forces with Halestorm’s Lzzy Hale to record a new version of “The Magic Of Christmas Day.” You can check that out below:

Snider commented:

“Originally written and recorded as a Christmas gift for my wife Suzette with no plan for commercial release, years later ‘The Magic Of Christmas Day (God Bless Us Everyone)’ was discovered and recorded by Celine Dion for her holiday record ‘These Are Special Times’, which went on to become the biggest selling holiday album in history — and is the reason we refer to her as ‘Saint Celine’ in my house. When it was recently suggested that I should finally record this song myself, I knew I needed to bring in a young powerhouse vocalist to not only duet with me, but light a Yuletide fire under my ass! I only knew of one rock vocalist who could deliver on all those fronts, and she did in spades: the incredible Lzzy Hale of Halestorm!”

Hale added:

“If you’re ever in your life gonna go full-on, all-gas, no-brakes ‘Christmas Cheer,’ you do it Dee Snider-style. I was so honored to get the call from Dee on his holiday classic ‘The Magic Of Christmas Day’. After exchanging a few very affectionate ‘f@&k yous’ as we rediscovered our respect and admiration for each other’s talent, the final recording produced by the legendary Jeff Pilson is insanely epic. Thank you so much to everyone for having me. And considering we will ALL be experiencing a very different holiday season in 2020, I hope that this song brings you joy and puts a smile on your face. God bless us everyone!”

Dee Snider Recording Christmas Song With Tarja Turunen

During an interview on the “Behind The Vinyl” podcast, Dee Snider (Twisted Sister) revealed that he has teamed up Tarja Turunen (ex-Nightwish) to record a Christmas song. The frontman said the following about that:

“I wrote this song for my wife many years ago. You guys may or may not know that Celine Dion recorded a Christmas song I wrote [called ‘God Bless Us Everyone’]. I wrote it as a gift for my wife; I never wrote it for commercial purposes. And I can’t — it’s just out of my range to sing it. But long story short, I decided to do my own rendition of it, and I asked Tarja to sing it as a duet with me, ’cause it’s got some really high parts in it. So Jeff Pilson from DOKKEN and FOREIGNER, he’s producing it. And we’re just finishing the tracks right now, so we’re gonna start doing the vocals. That’ll come out later this year.”

“When Jamey Jasta told me his idea for this song, I thought it sounded crazy. But after we were done putting it together and recording ‘For The Love Of Metal’, I knew we made a statement that not only needed to be made, but will speak for the heavy metal community for years to come. Because at the end of the day, we are all fucking metal! This is my new favorite song to perform live!”
