"Skid Row guys don't hate money, they just hate you," Anthrax guitarist adds.

An interesting event called Monster Energy Roast on the Range took place last Thursday (May 15), featuring some of the prominent figures of the metal world honoring and lampooning Slipknot singer Corey Taylor.

Scott Ian of Anthrax and Taylor's bandmate Shawn "Clown" Crahan were among musicians roasting Corey, while former Skid Row singer Sebastian Bach was honored with the roastmaster title.

Addressing Bach, Ian gave the vocalist quite a bashing, saying, "I recently read an interview about 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."

Coming in for the kill, the guitarist 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, but backwards. Drugs are bad, kids." Ouch.

As Blabbermouth reports, the part of the proceedings from the event goes to MusiCares benefit fund. Previous honorees include Zakk Wylde and Dee Snider of Twisted Sister.

    I keep coming back to this article just so I can this comment. You're a good man. An honest man. A man who is trustworthy, respectable, and more than likely handsome. 10/10 would read again
    Do you understand the definition of roads, UG?
    Wait did he really compare him to Lemmy? And that's supposed to be an insult? My grandma could come up with something better than that.
    I thought he meant by talent.. cuz I would have taken that as a compliment.
