The man on this year's heavy metal rotisserie is... Dee Snider!
Revolver and Guitar World are proud to announce the second annual Rock & Roll Roast comedy series with honoree Dee Snider. The exclusive event, sponsored by Epiphone and Monster Energy Drink, will take place at The Grove in Anaheim, California on Thursday, January 24, 2013 and will air live on AXS TV at Midnight ET/9PM PT; a portion of all proceeds will benefit MusiCares®, a nonprofit organization of The Recording Academy® that provides emergency financial assistance and addiction recovery resources to music people in need.
Roastmaster Penn Jillette and other metal-loving luminaries such as last year's honoree Zakk Wylde, Anthrax's Scott Ian, Lita Ford, WWE legend Mick Foley and That Metal Show host Eddie Trunk, as well as comedy and roast veterans Jim Norton, Craig Gass, Jim Florentine and more will all take aim at the Twisted Sister frontman and reality TV icon, best known for his outspoken personality, his golden locks and his appearances on The Celebrity Apprentice. Jose Mangin (of Sirius/XM and Headbanger's Ball fame) will also be on hand to serve as the evening's official DJ.
Roastee Snider commented, "Roasters remember: P.A.M.F. Payback's A Mutha F**ker!" Rock & Roll Roast Executive Producer Josh Bernstein added, "They say you only roast the ones you love, but with Dee Snider, we'll be making an exception."
And that's that!
Anyone have any jokes to contribute?
