New York -- Some classic Broadway show tunes will soon be getting the headbanging treatment.
The appearance Thursday and Friday night builds on Snider's new CD, "Dee Does Broadway," where he tackles a dozen theater standards, including "Music of the Night," "Big Spender" and a blistering rendition of "Mack the Knife."
"I was true to the songs but I found the rock in them, I didn't force the rock into them," says Snider, settling into a cozy banquette dressed in his trademark all black with his long wavy hair in a ponytail.

“The one constant through all the years, Ray, has been baseball. America has rolled by like an army of steamrollers. It has been erased like a blackboard, rebuilt and erased again. But baseball has marked the time. This field, this game: it’s a part of our past, Ray. It reminds us of all that once was good and it could be again.” – Field Of Dreams.
No truer words were ever spoken about America’s Pastime. Baseball began this past Spring with 30 teams vying for the chance to become World Champions and now it’s been decided. The San Francisco Giants and Detroit Tigers will play ball in the 2012 World Series. Before the final hurrah of nine innings, stats, bases and 3 strikes you’re out, Wamg has compiled a list of the Best Baseball Movies. Did we leave any in the dugout or are there some that should be sent to the showers? »

Jimmy Kimmel and Scandal's Kerry Washington stepped up to the podium this morning to announce the nominees for the 64th Primetime Emmys (Nick Offerman was scheduled to announce with Washington, but had to cancel due to travel issues, and luckily, Kimmel was on hand, still in his pajamas). It's not a surprise that a lot of Emmy favorites are back again, with Breaking Bad, Mad Men, and Modern Family scooping up tons of nods, but there's a lot of fresh blood in here too. I was pleasantly surprised to see a few names make it off our Emmy wishlist, like American Horror Story, Max Greenfield, and Julia Louis-Dreyfus. As for new series, Lena Dunham's Girls racked up noms for comedy series, directing, writing, and acting, and Downton Abbey is all over the drama categories. Now that the nominees are out, the official speculation can begin! The 64th Emmy »
