Dee Snider is using a resurgence in his popularity to do some good. On February 25, Dee is putting together a concert which will benefit the survivors of the Great White club gig where 100 fans were killed by fire and more than 200 injured. Snider was moved to do something when one of the burn victims told him that each day in the hospital for a burn victim can cost as much as $70,000. The concert will be broadcast on VH1.
The lineup so far includes Twisted Sister, Tesla, Stryper, Jewel, Kellie Pickler, and Tom Scholz. The concert will be held at The Dunkin Donuts Center in Providence Rhode Island. Rachael Ray will be serving the coffee for everyone. Ok. That last part is crap, but I never did comment on her apparent dislike for the coffee that pays her a great deal to say that she does.
It's very easy to forget about a tragedy and move on. I'm glad to see that Dee not only remembers what happened, but is doing something about it. So, here is some old school Twisted Sister.
