Zakk Wylde's Roast Idea Boomeranged On Him (A Top Story)

On Friday Zakk Wylde's Roast Idea Boomeranged On Him was a top story. Here is the recap: (Banana 101.5) Zakk Wylde recently spoke about being the first victim of Guitar World's first Rock and Roll Roast, which will feature rock roasters like Ozzy Osbourne, Corey Taylor, and Chris Jericho as well as comedians like Jim Norton, Brian Posehn, and Jim Breuer check out Zakk's thoughts and the trailer here.

Several comedians and fellow rockers plan to skewer Zakk Wylde at tonight's Rock and Roll Roast we sure as hell don't envy their task of poking fun at the iron-pumping heavy metal icon. You would think making fun of Wylde would be a dangerous game to play but as he recently told Artist Direct the whole thing was his idea:

"I'm good buddies with all of the guys over at Guitar World, and I remember talking to Brad Tolinski [editor-in-chief] about it. I mentioned I wanted to do a 'Black Label Roast.' I was watching the Dean Martin Roasts one day, and I thought, 'I ought to start doing these 'Black Label Roasts' where we take the piss out of all of our friends.' Dean Martin would have everybody on that thing, and they'd be getting destroyed [Laughs]. With cast of characters I know, I figured it'd be hysterical. Everybody knows everyone else too in rock. Brad came back to me and said they're going to do these Guitar World Rock & Roll Roasts, considering you were talking about doing those 'Black Label Roasts' and it was your idea, you're the first one we're going to destroy! I said, 'Awesome, sounds good!' That's how that came about. The more brutal it is, the funnier it is, dude." - more on this story
