Dee Snider to be roasted

Revolver and Guitar World are proud to announce the second annual Rock & Roll Roast comedy series with honoree Dee Snider, lead singer of the legendary 1980s rock band Twisted Sister.

The event will take place during the opening night of 2013 NAMM show at The Grove in Anaheim, California on Thursday, January 24, 2013 and will air live on AXS TV at midnight ET / 9 p.m. 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 (see video below), 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 SiriusXM and "Headbangers 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 Fucker!" 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."

Highlights will naturally air right here at True Metalhead.

Check out Jim Norton roasting Zakk Wylde during the inaugural Rock & Roll Roast.
Highlights include him turning to Scott Ian and saying "You look like Ben Kingsley eating a racoon" and telling Zakk that "...getting kicked out of Ozzy's band is like getting thrown out of Hitler's house for too many Jew jokes".
