Guitar World first ever Rock & Roll Roast will set their claws into Black Label Society frontman and former Ozzy Osbourne guitarist Zakk Wylde.
The event will take place at The Grove in Anaheim, California on Thursday, January 19th, 2012; a portion of all proceeds will go to the MusiCares charity. Here's the official details:
Roastmaster Sharon Osbourne and other metal-loving luminaries such as Ozzy Osbourne, Chris Jericho, Anthrax's Scott Ian, Stone Cold Steve Austin, Slipknot's Corey Taylor, as well as comedy and roast veterans Jim Norton, Brian Posehn, Jim Florentine and more will all take 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. Fresh from her recent stint on the Judas Priest tour, Lady Starlight (Lady Gaga's resident DJ) will also be on hand to serve as the evening's official DJ.
How often will you get to see Zakk Wylde, Seether, Travis Barker, and Good Charlotte all competing for the same thing? The answer — once.

The reunited Spineshank have finished their new album, Anger Denial Acceptance, and are currently seeking a new record label with hopes to release the effort next year.
"The songs on this record are more personal than anything we've ever done, and I think it shows when we play them live," states drummer Tommy Decker. "This is our most varied and challenging record yet, and I can't wait to get out there and bring these new songs to life." "We're not interested in living in the past, we want to push forward," adds guitarist Mike Sarkisyan. "We just finished the best record of our careers and we're really excited to get it out there." The band is set to begin touring the country and will be coming to a town near you on their headlining run beginning on September 29th.
Buckcherry has been announced as the tour support for Guns N’ Roses on a handful of dates for the upcoming U.S. tour.
Buckcherry vocalist Josh Todd was once a candidate to front the band Velvet Revolver, which consists mostly of former members of GN’R. While he didn’t end up replacing Axl Rose as the voice in front of Slash, Duff McKagan, and Matt Sorum — he will be the voice in front of Axl…sort of.
It was just announced that Buckcherry will be the openers for the upcoming Fall 2011 Guns N’ Roses U.S. Tour. Buckcherry is scheduled for five dates thus far and more may be added. The band already has separate dates booked starting in mid-November — so it’s likely that another opener will be named for the latter half of the tour.
