DEE SNIDER - Lead Singer of "Twisted Sister"
Legendary Rocker, Dee Snider of Twisted Sister TEAMS UP WITH HORNITOS® TEQUILA to remix their classic hit “We’re Not Gonna Take It” just in time for Cinco de Mayo. They’ve actually hired a mariachi band to give it that Mexican flavor and will then be releasing the track and subsequent video just in time to celebrate the holiday! All part of Hornitos 2nd Annual Mariachi Mash Up contest that also gave fans the opportunity to to win a role in the video, with the band. The 2nd Annual Mariachi Mash Up follows the success of last year’s inaugural Mash Up featuring the classic rock band Cheap Trick, who remixed their anthem “Surrender.” Well he was just recently given the boot from “The Donald” on last week’s Celebrity Apprentice! In June Twisted Sister's greatest hits will be featured in the film version of Rock of Ages starring Tom Cruise. While perhaps best known as the lead singer of 80's sensation, Twisted Sister, there is so much more to Dee Snider. His recent starring role on Broadway in the hit musical Rock Of Ages generated national TV appearances on The Today Show, CNN’s Joy Behar Show and a legendary spot on The Jimmy Fallon Show where Dee guested with The Spooks and Jimmy on Dee’s self penned hit, “I Wanna Rock”. The Broadway run inspired him to make a brand new record for Razor & Tie featuring some of Broadway's greatest songs in his own indomitable style. "Dee Does Broadway" is slated for an early 2012 release. A big year for Dee is assured. His autobiography, “Shut Up and Give Me The Mic”, will be released in early 2012 from Gallery Books/Simon & Schuster, right before Warner Pictures releases the Tom Cruise, Alec Baldwin, Catherine Zeta Jones and Russell Brand blockbuster film version of Rock Of Ages. The movie features two of Dee's biggest hits. He has also starred in several reality TV shows including Gone Country with John Rich, MTV’s Rock The Cradle with his son Jesse and Growing Up Twisted, an A&E series featuring the entire Snider family and their Long Island lifestyle. He is also a frequent host on MTV Networks and his own nationally syndicated radio show House Of Hair is heard on more than 200 stations in North America, houseofhaironline.com. His career as a voiceover artist has resulted in Dee being heard in many radio and TV commercials, documentaries and a year long stint as the introductory voice on MSNBC. Dee wrote, produced and starred in Dee Snider’s StrangeLand. This horror flick immediately became a classic of the genre, and StrangeLand 2 is currently in development. With the success of StrangeLand, Dee was tapped to host a weekly radio show on all things horror, Fangoria Radio. In 2002, VH1 signed Dee to star as himself in their original movie production of Warning: Parental Advisory. Co-starring Mariel Hemingway, Jason Priestley and Griffin Dunne, Dee re-created his role during the congressional record labeling hearings of the mid 1980's. Battling the Beltway wives, most notably Tipper Gore, Dee, along with Frank Zappa and John Denver, turned DC politics upside down, carrying the banner of Dee’s Twisted Sister legendary anthem “We're Not Gonna Take It”. Arnold Schwarzenegger wasn't going to take it either. The California Governator enlisted Dee to help rally his political troops all the way to the Governor's mansion in California. At his last political rally in Sacramento, Schwarzenegger asked Dee to lead the way in singing “We're Not Gonna Take It”. California listened and the Terminator was elected Governor. Not to be outdone, the Mexican Government recruited Dee as well, using the anthem in a TV campaign to gain attention on their bid to set the country on a fiscal and judicial road to recovery.
JOSHUA HENDERSON - "Skillet Street Food"
Joshua Henderson, owner of Skillet Street Food in Seattle and one of the four chefs featured in the collection, is available for interviews. In addition to talking about the Street Eats Recipe Collection, he can discuss the growing popularity of fast and convenient food trucks. Henderson graduated from the Culinary Institute of America, Hyde Park, in 1998 as valedictorian with honors. From there, he went on a circuitous route of working for big food companies, hotels and restaurants, trying to find out not what he wanted to do, but how. In 2004, while living in Los Angeles, Henderson began a company that provided private chefs for photographers on shoots traveling to multiple locations throughout the country. It was during this time that his vision for food really began to take focus—on wheels. For Henderson that meant approachable street food rooted in classic cuisine. And so, Skillet Street Food was born. Henderson returned to Seattle, acquired an Airstream trailer, retrofitted it and began serving bistro food to the lines of hungry office workers outside the trailer’s service window. No other trend has parked itself at the forefront of the culinary world quite like food trucks. But these aren’t the stale doughnut and questionable hotdog stands of the past. A new generation of chefs in cities across the country have been giving up brick and mortar concepts and putting their unique cuisines on four wheels. If you’re not in an urban setting, it doesn’t mean you have to miss out on these delectable mobile dishes. CanolaInfo has partnered with four food truck chefs from across the country to create the Street Eats Recipe Collection. All chefs have shared two of their most popular dishes for the collection, including dishes like Cheddar-Parmesan Poutine with Gravy, Roasted Beet Salad with Citrus Vinaigrette, Crab Cake Sliders with Creamy Apple Coleslaw and Sinful Bliss Cupcakes with Sweetened Whipped Cream Frosting.
