Bach’s evidence for Crue jam
Sebastian Bach has dug up a 1994 TV interview in which Nikki Sixx discusses the then-Skid Row singer rehearsing with Motley Crue.
It’s the latest round in a war of words that erupted between the two last week after Bach said he’d been asked to join Crue, but had refused the offer.
The argument kicked off when Bach was asked by a fan whether he’d been considered for the role, and replied: “Not considered. Asked.”
That led Sixx to say on his radio show: “He says that Motley Crue wanted him to replace Vince Neil – and I’m just going to say right now: that is absolutely not true.” Bach fired back by saying he’d rehearsed with them, he could provide details of the entire experience, and that he’d explain it all in his upcoming book.
In the Headbangers Ball interview below, recorded while Crue were promoting their self-titled album with vocalist John Corabi, Sixx discusses how the band had always said they’d split if one of the original members was gone.
He continues: “We said we owed it to ourselves to at least see what it felt like. At times when Vince was out of town Sebastian Bach would come down and hang out with us. And we’d be rehearsing. We need a singer to rehearse. So he’d sing.
“Steve Perry from Journey came down one time just to hang out and meet everybody, and he was singing. So we kind of had a feeling what it would be like to have a different singer. And we said, the least we could do is try it on for size before we, you know, end it. And we met John and it was magic.”
Linking to the clip, Bach says: “Absolutely true – Nikki Sixx tells it like it is!” and adds the hashtags #ForTheWin, #NoBullshit, #Oops, #YouCantMakeThisStuffUp, #IAintMadAtYa, #NotLying, #ItsOK, #SomeoneOwesSomeoneAnApology, #ThanksForTheHype and #IRememberYou.
But while the interview does provide evidence that Bach sang with Sixx’s band, there’s no discussion of him being asked to become a member of the band Last week the singer responded to Classic Rock‘s original story by tweeting: “Who ever said it was 1992? It was way before that. Ho-hum.”
