Roastee Snider commented, "Roasters remember: P.A.M.F. Payback’s A Mutha F**ker!” Rock & Roll Roast Executive Producer Josh Bernstein added, “They say you only roast the ones you love, but with Dee Snider, we’ll be making an exception.”

Never setting his limits, Dee has taken on the role of film producer, actor, voiceover artist, political advocate and, most recently, Broadway star with his run in the hit musical Rock of Ages. His autobiography, “Shut Up and Give Me the Mic,” was released in the summer of 2012 and Dee returns to the small screen in March 2013 as part of the cast of All-Star Celebrity Apprentice.
