From his ’80s image to his politics to his love of reality television shows, next month’s roast of rocker Dee Snider is a comedic Golden Corral. The Twisted Sister frontman will be the focus of the second annual Rock & Roll Roast on Jan. 24 in Anaheim, Calif.

“Roasters remember: P.A.M.F. Payback’s A Mutha F**ker!” Snider said in a statement. Anthrax‘s Scott Ian, Lita Ford, Penn Jillette and comedian Craig Glass are a few expected to take aim at Snider. Also in attendance will be Zakk Wylde, the subject of the 2012 Rock & Roll Roast. Revolver and Guitar World will be working together to produce the event, which will raise money for MusiCares, a nonprofit that provides emergency financial assistance and addiction recovery resources to music people in need.

Jillette will serve as roastmaster, a role that went to Sharon Osbourne in 2012. Once again a singular collection of musicians, comedians and professional wrestlers will be in attendance. Mick Foley will be on hand for Snider, as Chris Jericho and Stone Cold Steve Austin were for Wylde.

In addition to fronting Twisted Sister, Snider’s multi-faceted career has included roles as radio host (the long-running ‘House of Hair’), film work, Broadway star and reality television star. He’s appeared on ‘The Celebrity Apprentice,’ MTV’s ‘Rock the Cradle’ and A&E’s ‘Growing Up Twisted.’

In 2012 Snider released ‘Shut Up and Give Me the Mic,’ one of the better autobiographies in recent rock history. In 2013 he’ll be back on TV in the ‘All-Star Celebrity Apprentice.’
