Guitar World held the magazine’s first-ever Rock & Roll Roast with inaugural honoree Zakk Wylde. Presented by Epiphone guitars and sponsored by Monster Energy Drink, EMG pickups, Revolver magazine, Marshall amplification, Dunlop, Eagle Rock and Samson, the exclusive event took place on January 19 at The Grove in Anaheim, California; a portion of all proceeds went to the MusiCares charity. Zakk Wylde was recently named one of the 100 greatest living rock stars by Revolver magazine.
Roastmaster Sharon Osbourne and other metal-loving luminaries such as Ozzy Osbourne, Chris Jericho, ANTHRAX‘s Scott Ian, SLIPKNOT‘s Corey Taylor, as well as comedy and roast veterans Jim Norton, Brian Posehn, Jim Florentine and more all took aim at the BLACK LABEL SOCIETY frontman and guitar icon, best known for his incredible axe chops, his golden locks and his signature Bullseye guitar line.
