Ozzy Osbourne's former guitarist Zakk Wylde is to be the first rocker honoured at Guitar World magazine's inaugural Rock & Roll Roast.
Ozzy and his wife Sharon will join rock stars Scott Ian and Corey Taylor and comedians Jim Norton and Brian Posehn in taking aim at the Black Label Society star - all in the name of comedy - at The Grove in Anaheim, California on 19 January (12).
A portion of all proceeds from the night of comedy will benefit the MusiCares charity.
Wylde was recently named one of the 100 greatest living rock stars by Revolver magazine.
