SCOTT IAN To SEBASTIAN BACH: The Guys In SKID ROW Don't Hate Money, They Just Hate You

May 19, 2014

ANTHRAX guitarist Scott Ian and SLIPKNOT percussionist M. Shawn "Clown" Crahan are among the nearly a dozen musicians and comedians who honored and lampooned SLIPKNOT and STONE SOUR singer Corey Taylor at the Monster Energy Roast On The Range With Corey Taylor on Thursday, May 15 at LC Pavilion in Columbus, Ohio. The third annual event in Revolver and Guitar World's Rock & Roll Roast Comedy Series — and first to be held in the heartland — launched the weekend-long festivities for Rock On The Range (May 16-18),which last year drew rock fans from around the country to Columbus Crew Stadium with over 105,000 tickets sold. Former SKID ROW singer Sebastian Bach served as roastmaster while Jose Mangin (of SiriusXM and "Headbangers Ball" fame) was also on hand to serve as the evening's official DJ and emcee.

Video footage of the main event as well as the pre-show red-carpet interviews (courtesy of Fanpass and The Front Row Report) can be seen below.

Addressing Bach, who was also part of the celebrity dais at last week's event, Ian said: "I recently read an interview about that SKID ROW reunion. And Sebastian, in the interview, you said something about how the other guys must hate money because they don't wanna do it? No, they just hate you."

He added: "You're the one man that makes Dee Snider look like he's aged well. Over the course of 20 years, you've gone from Paris Hilton to Lemmy. You're, like, Dorian Gray [who stays young forever, but his picture ages], but backwards. Drugs are bad, kids."

A portion of the proceeds from the Monster Energy Roast On The Range With Corey Taylor is benefitting MusiCares, a nonprofit organization founded by The Recording Academy to provide a safety net of critical assistance for music people in times of need, including emergency financial and medical assistance, addiction recovery services, and more.

Previous honorees in the Rock & Roll Roast Comedy Series include Zakk Wylde (2012) and Dee Snider (2013).
