Revolver and Guitar World have announced the 2nd annual Rock & Roll Roast comedy series with honoree Dee Snider. The event, sponsored by Epiphone and Monster Energy Drink, will take place at The Grove in Anaheim, CA on Jan, 24, 2013 and will air live on AXS TV at Midnight ET / 9 PM PT. A portion of 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. Snider was recently named one of the 100 greatest living rock stars by Revolver Magazine.
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.
Beyond being the iconic lead singer of 80’s sensation Twisted Sister, Dee Snider has starred in several reality TV shows (The Celebrity Apprentice, Gone Country, MTV’s Rock the Cradle, A&E’s Growing Up Twisted) and frequently hosts programs on MTV Networks along with his own long-running nationally syndicated radio show House of Hair. Never setting his limits, Dee has taken on the role of film producer, actor, voiceover artist, political advocate and, most recently, Broadway star with his run in the hit musical Rock of Ages. His autobiography, “Shut Up and Give Me the Mic,” was released in the summer of 2012 and Dee returns to the small screen in March 2013 as part of the cast of All-Star Celebrity Apprentice.
