Description

Dee Snider was an undeniable presence in the 1980s, instantly recognizable as the frontman of heavy metal band Twisted Sister. He wore his makeup as loud as he played has music, and spent most of his time on the road, touring with the band. Now he’s just one of six — a regular guy (and grandfather!) with a wife and four kids living in the suburbs of Long Island. In Growing Up Twisted, A&E follows Snider, his powerhouse of a wife Suzette, and their offbeat but tight-knit family as they navigate life in Stony Brook, New York. Married for over 30 years, Snider and Suzette have raised their children to be fiercely independent and strong-willed: Jesse is an aspiring rock musician, husband and new father; Shane is the Snider’s resident comic and hopeful stand-up; Cody’s a budding filmmaker and quintessential troublemaker; and Cheyenne is Daddy’s little girl, about to make the tough transition to teenager. They’re a rock-solid family of inimitable individuals not afraid to speak their minds — with the nonstop and entertaining dialogue usually directed at one another. Growing Up Twisted shows how, despite their father’s rock star status, the Sniders are just like every other family . . . only not at all.
