Dee Snider grew up in Baldwin, rose to prominence as the frontman of '80s glam metal band Twisted Sister and recorded their "Burn in Hell" album right around the corner from my house as a kid in Merrick.

Now he's got a reality show on A&E set mainly in Stony Brook, and is the national spokesman for March of Dimes' "Bikers for Babies" campaign. He'll be at Town Park in Point Lookout this Sunday, May 23, for the eighth annual motorcycle ride.

For every dollar donated, March of Dimes spends 76 cents to support research and programs that help babies begin healthy lives.

You can register to ride, volunteer and/or donate at Here's a soundbite of Snider talking about Bikers for Babies.
