    I was almost afraid to click on this.

    But hell, that was pretty good.

    Felt the same way and that's why I posted this.

    He did a beautiful job.

    I could've done without the awful sounding metal guitar, but damn, he sang that like a man! Great voice.

    He is classically trained. I think he's a counter tenor. Dee is a great singer IMO.

    I agree with Noah, the vocals were good. The guitar as it was played, not so much. It detracted from the vocals.

    that was a solid, muscular performance, like it was (IMO) meant to be sung.

    Great job! I've always liked Dee's voice and he's one hell of a frontman. I saw Twisted Sister last summer and the man can still deliver a great show.

    He should have done it without the guitar.

    Sounded great. You guys are missing the point, it's a heavy metal star spangled banner, and you need the guitar. Otherwise, it's the same old, same old.
    Used to see them at the Soap Factory in Jersey, Dee always knew how to put on a live show. Just remember to clap after every song, or you might get called out...

    WOW! that was one of most solid performances of the Star Spangled Banner I've heard in a while. Singing it with respect and no unnecessary vocal histrionics. props to ya, Mr. Snider:rockin

    Awesome job by Dee, but really they couldn't get O Canada as well? Just once I'd like to hear someone play O Canada metal style...

    I have nothing but respect for Dee Snider, as a person, and as a musician.
    That kicked ass.

    Anyone who hasn't read his autobiography should check it out- definitely one of the better rock star autobiographies IMO.

    yeah, his book was well written and entertaining.

    i saw TS open for ratt in the 80's, and they destroyed them in every way
    (well, not in lead guitar chops, but the vocals, rhythm section, & overall performance).

    It's about time. Someone who has a clue about doing it straight forward. "Muscular " somebody said. I agree.
