TWISTED SISTER vocalist Dee Snider was recently interviewed for “America’s Deadliest Concert: The Guest List”, a Reelz documentary about the infamous GREAT WHITE concert fire nearly two decades ago that killed a hundred people and injured hundreds more. Featured on the documentary soundtrack is one of the most heartfelt, moving songs from Dee’s latest album, “Leave A Scar”, titled “Stand”. Today, in honor of those lives lost, Snider and “The Guest List” director/producer David Bellino have unveiled a brand new music video for “Stand”, featuring footage from the documentary.
Snider says about the “Stand” music video: “While I didn’t write ‘Stand’ for the Station nightclub fire documentary ‘America’s Deadliest Rock Concert: The Guest List’, it is a perfect fit. The full tragedy of that horrific night was the despicable lack of support shown for a community in desperate need. ‘Stand’ speaks to the importance for us all to recognize these moments of desperation and do something about them. ‘Don’t leave your mark… leave a scar!'”
“America’s Deadliest Rock Concert: The Guest List” premiered this past Sunday, February 20, presenting the deeply personal stories of lives forever altered by the tragic Station nightclub fire that devastated the tight-knit community of West Warwick, Rhode Island. The documentary will air again on Reelz this coming Sunday, February 27 at 3:00 p.m. Eastern time.
Snider has performed at the Station nightclub, and was instrumental in bringing together fellow recording artists for a fundraising concert for survivors and victims’ families.
Snider adds: “Nobody should have to die because they want to see a band and listen to the music they love. Nobody should be scarred for life, be crippled or have their children orphaned because of their love for rock ‘n’ roll. This documentary not only serves as a reminder of this incredible tragedy, but it shines a light on an amazing group of people who overcame unfathomable loss, and survived, even thrived in the aftermath.”
“America’s Deadliest Concert: The Guest List” includes interviews with Russell, Snider, Don Dokken (DOKKEN), Lita Ford and Michael Sweet (STRYPER).
