Slipknot and Stone Sour frontman Corey Taylor will be roasted at the third annual Monster Energy Roast On The Range, set for Thursday, May 15th at LC Pavilion in Columbus. Ohio. Joining Taylor to both honor and make fun of him will be Roastmaster Sebastian Bach, along with Slipknot percussionist Shawn Crahan, Anthrax guitarist Scott Ian and comedians like Jim Florentine, Don Jamieson and Brian Posehn.
Taylor said in a statement, "Honestly, I don't know what to say. I'm a little nervous, a little excited, and of course a little gassy. But that could just be the excitement. I'm really looking forward to it, but knowing my friends and the possibilities for who could be a part of this, I have no idea what I'm getting into!"
