twistedsister.gifIt's official.

Dee Snider, frontman of Twisted Sister, announced that his band will headline the last night of Rocklahoma. Snider made the announcement on his radio show House of Hair.  Quote Snider:

"It is my distinct pleasure to announce that Twisted Sister will once again be involved with a show that will go down in history. On July 15th, Twisted has just been confirmed as the headliner for the Rocklahoma festival."  "Rocklahoma will go down as one of the most momentous concerts of all time."

The show will feature all original members of TS, including Snider, Jay Jay French, Mark Mendoza, Eddie Ojeda and AJ Pero. For more information on the band, please see the article "Still Hungry."

poisond.jpgIn other glam news, Poison has leaked some tracks off their new cover album, Poison'd. The songs are available on www.myspace.com/poison and feature "What I Like About You" (The Romantics), "Can't You See" (The Marshall Tucker Band) and a couple others. The picture to the left is the proposed cover art for the new album. Sadly, I don't care for it very much. I was hoping for a band shot or something a little more artistic. I know this is a bit of a rush release and the cover reflects that. More importantly, I think the tracks sound pretty good, so I suggest you had to the page and give them a listen. Even though this is a cover album, the tracks actually sound distinctly Poison, especially the guitar work and Bret's voice is very bluesy.  The disc includes eight new covers produced by maverick Don Was, plus other already released covers such as "Your Mama Don't Dance." "We're An American Band," and "Rock n' Roll All Nite."

As I've mentioned in other posts, Poison'd will be in stores June 5, 2007.

That is great that Twisted Sister is part of the festival now! They should be great! I really wish I could go.
I think that the Poison covers album should be pretty good. And, I agree with you Allyson, I don't care for the cover much either.

I don't like the cover much either. Looks cheap and it reminds me of a cover by a band called Buster Cherry from the early 90's.
