Dee Snider returns in Holliston Season 2, premiering tonight, June 4, only on FEARnet. We caught up with the iconic 80s rocker for a fun chat about his career and his continuing exploits as Lance Rockett on this hit horror comedy. Watch our exclusive interview, and find out what Lance has in store for horror fans and music aficiandos alike.
Dee Snider unforgettably launched his public persona with Twisted Sister's 1982 debut album Under The Blade. He appeared before a U.S. Senate hearing on placing "Parental Advisory" labels on record covers and emerged as one of the most outspoken and beloved personalities in pop culture. He still celebrates all things hard rock and heavy metal and tours with his iconic band, but he's also evolved into a radio host, actor and commentator. His varied career has careened between writing and starring in the horror cult classic Strangeland, appearing on SpongeBob SquarePants, hosting the nationally syndicated radio show House of Hair, and competing against Bret Michaels and Dennis Rodman in All-Star Celebrity Apprentice.
Perhaps one of the most uproarious turns in Dee Snider 's career is his role as 'Lance Rockett' in FEARnet's Original Series Holliston. Full of irreverent humor and shocking special effects, Holliston follows the daily exploits of two aspiring horror filmmakers who are dealing with the struggles of post-college life and relationships while trying to catch a break in the business and biding time at their jobs at a local radio station.
Lance Rockett (Dee Snider) is their micromanaging and enthusiastic boss...a sexually ambiguous, walking cloud of Aquanet who's hopelessly stuck in the 80's and fronting a local Van Halen tribute band. Holliston Season 2 includes the series' first animated episode that sees the town attacked by a giant blob; musical performances by the talented ensemble cast; an episode overtaken by a zombie outbreak; and awesome appearances by guest stars ranging from Bill Moseley to David Naughton.
