Zakk Wylde Roast: The Aftermath
Rock GOD, Zakk Wylde, was the victim of Guitarworld’s first ever Rock Roast. I wanted so badly to watch the roast, but couldn’t find anywhere it was being broadcasted on. Zakk Wylde is a rock icon and one of the gnarliest musicians of our time. It is only fitting that we “bust his balls”.
According to Josh Hart from guitarworld.com: “Wylde may be one of the most beloved members of the guitar-playing community, but for two hours last night at The Grove in Anaheim, California, a dais of comedians, musicians — and a wrestler — gathered to roast the Wylde child. On hand were comedians Jim Norton, Jim Florentine and Brian Posehn, as well as former Guns N’ Roses bassist Duff McKagan, Slipknot vocalist Corey Taylor, wrestler and Fozzy frontman Chris Jericho and Anthrax guitarist Scott Ian. The night also included video roasts from Steel Panther, the Ultimate Warrior, Stone Cold Steve Austin, Ozzy Osbourne guitarist Gus G, Judas Priest singer Rob Halford and even William Shatner.”
With Sharon Osbourne as the Roastmaster, each of the “Roasters” took shot after shot at Zakk. According to guitarworld.com “Although now sober, Wylde couldn’t get away from his younger days as a heavy drinker. “Zakk’s guitar playing is way less diatonic and way more gin and tonic,” said Scott Ian, who brought along some embarrassing photos of the guest of honor to go along with his roasting.”
After they all had their turn. It was then Zakk’s turn. He dished it back to each of them. One of my favorites was when he joked on Sharon: “There’s a lot of faces up here, and Sharon’s is probably the newest,” he said, adding, “I’m kidding, Mom. You don’t look a day over artificial.”
HAHAHA! Good One!
