(PCM) You never know what can happen when you gather together a group of hilarious comedians and amazing musicians to both honor and ridicule Slipknot and Stone Sour front man Corey Taylor, but you had better believe it was going to be memorable.
The Monster Energy Roast On The Range with Corey Taylor was the ideal way to kick off the massive Rock On The Range weekend in Columbus, OH. The event was held on Thursday, May 15th at the LC Pavilion and was the third annual event in Revolver & Guitar World’s Rock & Roll Roast Comedy Series. The Monster Energy Roast On The Range with Corey Taylor drew a massive crowd and while looking around everyone appeared to be having a fantastic time and most importantly laughing their asses off!
Former Skid Row front man Sebastian Bach served as Roastmaster for the event and celebrities in attendance to get their digs on Corey Taylor included Brian Posehn, Craig Gass, Finesse Mitchell, Don Jamieson, Jim Florentine, M. Shawn “Clown” Crahan, Jamey Jasta, Scott Ian and Pearl Aday. The event was DJ’d and emceed by SiriusXM/Headbanger’s Ball host Jose Mangin.
A portion of the proceeds from the Monster Energy Roast On The Range With Corey Taylor went to a fantastic cause which was 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.
