Radio shock jock Howard Stern has turned the big 6-0, and he celebrated with a little help from a lot of friends. According to a Feb. 1 report by USA Today, the Sirius XM host was “roasted” on-air by a parade of A-list stars on Friday night in honor of his 60th birthday. The four-hour radio party, which also included some moments, was broadcast live from the Hammerstein Ballroom in Manhattan.
Pal Jimmy Kimmel played emcee, while celeb guests included Robert Downey Jr., Heidi Klum, Rosie O’Donnell, John Stamos, Jimmy Fallon, Kathy Griffin, David Letterman, Bryan Cranston, Chelsea Handler and Katie Couric.
Adam Levine, John Mayer, Dave Grohl, Jewel, Steven Tyler, Jon Bon Jovi and Rob Zombie were among the musical performers at the star-studded shindig.
NJ.com live blogged the bash, which Stern called “the greatest night” of his life. Highlights included an interview with David Letterman, John Fogerty jamming Creedence classics, and toasts from everyone from Barbara Walters to Larry King, who said being interviewed by Stern was "one of the great hours of all the years I've spent on the air.”
Stern had his own take on turning 60. "I'm sort of in denial,” he said. “I kind of go wow, I don't look 60, I look good! And then I see a picture of myself and go, 'Uhhh’ … I feel good. I've been working out a bit."
The event will be replayed on Sirius XM Monday, Feb. 3 at 6:00 a.m. ET.
