LITA FORD Says DEE SNIDER Roast Was 'Sickening'

On February 27, Aniruddh "Andrew" Bansal of Metal Assault conducted an interview with '80s hard rock queen Lita Ford. An excerpt from the chat follows below.

Metal Assault: You recently did the Dee Snider roast at NAMM (see video below). What was that like?

Lita: I enjoyed being there, I enjoyed being around my friends Eddie Trunk, Scott Ian and just everyone that was involved was really nice. But I think the whole concept behind that roast is terrible. I don't agree with it, and I personally hope it goes straight into the toilet. That's my opinion. [laughs]

Metal Assault: Wow, I'm pretty surprised by that! Why do you think it's a bad thing? Is it just a distasteful way of doing it?

Lita: I don't like bagging on my friends. I don't like calling people names. It's terrible! They're turning us on ourselves. They're turning us against each other, and it's sickening. It's such a fucked up show. I really had a hard time with it. I could hardly speak. I was really very uncomfortable with it?

Metal Assault: Well, why did you do it then?

Lita: I didn't know what it was. I wasn't quite sure. I knew it was something where you make fun of somebody, but I didn't realize how extreme it was and how terrible it was. They turn you on your friends, so you're bagging on your friends! To me, that's just not what I'm about. I don't like it. It might be good for some people, but for me it was a nightmare and I will definitely never do that one again, nor I think will they have me back.
