MÖTLEY CRÜE and SIXX: A.M. bassist Nikki Sixx has once again taken shots at Sebastian Bach, saying that the vocalist should "let go" of the "former SKID ROW singer" tag, while also making fun of Bach's involvement with ABC's new competition series "Sing Your Face Off".
During a segment on a recent edition of Nikki's "Sixx Sense" radio show, Sixx said (hear audio below): "A new celebrity singing competition is coming to TV, like we haven't had enough. It's called 'Sing Your Fucking Face Off'. It's actually just called 'Sing Your Face Off'. [It features] five celebrities, including former SKID ROW singer Sebastian Bach…
"When is he gonna let go of the 'former SKID ROW' [tag]? I mean, at this point, dude, you've been out of SKID ROW longer than SKID ROW was even alive. Like, let it go!
"OK. He's gonna have to impersonate different musical icons. It should be fascinating. It starts May 31 on ABC. Let me set my DVR to 'Snooze.'"
After Bach revealed in a a three-word tweet to a fan on August 29, 2013 that he was asked to join MÖTLEY CRÜE more than two decades ago, Sixx quickly retorted that Bach's version of events never happened. Sebastian then took to his Facebook page to describe in some detail the circumstances behind his being asked to join the CRÜE, which included taking part in a full day's rehearsal with the band and a slew of phone calls between various managers, agents and label executives. "I was driven to rehearsal by Tommy Lee, and I spent a full day singing the MÖTLEY CRÜE set with the band MÖTLEY CRÜE," Bach wrote. "I remember the songs that Nikki asked me to sing that day. I remember the whole road crew's ecstatic reaction to us jamming together all day. And I remember Nikki's very generous, kind offer, at the end of our rehearsal, for me to join the band MÖTLEY CRÜE. I remember his exact words that he said to me in front of his whole road crew, Tommy and Mick [Mars] as well. It's not every day that your hero asks you to join his band."
Bach didn't reveal the full details of what went down that day, promising his Facebook followers that he "will tell the complete story of Nikki offering me to join MÖTLEY CRÜE in my upcoming book, which will be arriving on bookshelves soon."
He added: "I am not simply 'making this up'… I am not a liar. I am working on my book right now and I look forward to you all reading it. I plan on my book having even more information in it than one of my tweets does."
On September 13, 2013, Nikki tweeted what appeared to be a short response to Bach's online rant: "Someone needs attention to try and sell some books." He then added: "I always liked the term 'washed up.'"
