SEBASTIAN BACH Calls MICHAEL SWEET A 'Pussy' With 'A Big F**king Mouth'

SEBASTIAN BACH Calls MICHAEL SWEET A 'Pussy' With 'A Big F**king Mouth'

**UPDATE**: Sweet has released the following statement regarding Bach's latest comments:

"Well, since it's been turned into a public bash, here's my side: A while back I was asked by the label (Frontiers) to produce a [Sebastian Bach] album. I spoke to Sebastian's manager and we were discussing possibilities. After a few emails back and forth, Sebastian decided to do something else. I was then asked about this in an interview with Eddie Trunk and I shared (respectfully) what had transpired. Later that evening, Sebastian tweeted and emailed me and said 'shut your mouth or I'll shut it for you.' He also said not to 'ever let his name come out of my mouth again' in an email. I emailed him to make amends and explain yet to no avail. I'd be a liar if I said it didn't bother me. It did. I've got nothing against Sebastian. I don't even know him and he doesn't know me.

"Fast forward to Moriah Formica opening for STRYPER and blowing everyone's minds with her talent and voice on a cover of 'I'll Remember You'. I posted it and took a little grief for saying 'she smokes the original singer.' I must admit that that comment was made based on my opinion as well as my experience with Sebastian. I then commented on a post and referred to Sebastian as a 'tool' based on what had transpired between us a few months back. I suppose I shouldn't have said that. I'll admit to my mistakes and apologize if need be.

"He sent me an email again basically stating to 'be prepared next time we meet face to face' along with a few other nice gestures. I sent him an email basically saying 'let's get along and move on.' I have yet to hear from Sebastian.

"Anyone who knows me knows that I express my opinion and I'm more than willing to back it up. I do my best to be honest yet not to be mean-spirited or destructive. I'm also no pussy. Obviously, Sebastian doesn't know me, because if he did, he'd know that as fact.

"Since we're both adults, should we not take the higher road here? In a perfect world, that would be the right thing to do.

"Unfortunately, I think because I'm a Christian, some people think that I'm supposed to 'turn the other cheek' and let people say and do whatever they want. I guess the 'pussy' in me won't let me do that.

"Thanks for listening and my sincere apologies if I've offended anyone and please know that was not my intention. I'll try a little harder next time."

The original article follows below.

Sebastian Bach has accused Michael Sweet of having "a big fucking mouth" after the STRYPER frontman said a teenage female singer "smoked" Bach with her version of a classic SKID ROW song.

The latest war of words began when Sweet shared a video on Facebook of 16-year-old emerging artist Moriah Formica perfoming the SKID ROW track "I Remember You", along with the caption: "Moriah Formica kills this and in my humble opinion, smokes the original singer."

After a Twitter user posted a screenshot of Sweet's post and included the message, "Michael Sweet posts video to FB of 15 yo girl singing 'I Remember You' Calls @sebastianbach a 'tool' in the process," the former SKID ROW vocalist fired back, writing in a tweet: "Michael Sweet has a big fucking mouth. Behind a keyboard that is. Can't wait to see this pussy in person again someday."

Bach and Sweet previously traded barbs nearly two years ago when Sweet claimed he was asked to produce a Bach solo album, only for those plans to be squashed because Sebastian couldn't make up his mind. Sweet said: "I was approached to do a Sebastian album… to produce it and to co-write with him and basically try to kind of go back to those powerful songs from the past. Not make a dated record, but just that style, the anthemy SKID ROW stuff that everybody loves. And that was the plan." He continued: "Management got involved, and Sebastian and I e-mailed each other back and forth. It was going down the track a little ways and all of a sudden it came to a screeching halt. He decided he wanted to do an acoustic album, or wanted to do this, or wanted to do that. And I was just, like, 'Guys, let me know what's going on, if it's going on.' And I never really heard any more about it, so I guess it's not happening. But it would have been cool."

Michael also offered a theory as to why so few of Bach's 800,000 Facebook followers purchased the former SKID ROW singer's latest solo album, "Give 'Em Hell", when it was first released. Sweet told Trunk: "This isn't a bash against Sebastian at all; it's just my opinion. I think people wanna hear Sebastian of old. They wanna hear the SKID ROW Sebastian. They wanna hear the hits. And he's giving them modern rock. It's ['Give 'Em Hell'] a good album, it's a good-sounding album, but it's not the glory days."

After a fan wrote on Twitter that "the points M. Sweet made about fans wanting 'old school' Bach sounds - are ACCURATE. Not rude or mean. Just true," Bach responded: "ACCURATE? FACT: No member of STRYPER was EVER asked to produce ANY album by Sebastian Bach! EVER. Who do U think asks that?? Omg!"

Sweet later took to his own Twitter to clarify his proposed role in the making of Bach's solo album. Michael wrote: "I was asked by the LABEL to produce Sebastian Bach. I never said by Sebastian."

Formica is featured on Sweet's latest solo album "One Sided War", singing a duet with Michael on a different version of the song "Can't Take This Life".

Well, since it's been turned into a public bash, here's my side:

Moriah Formica -I Remember You-No matter how many times I see Mo Formica cover/perform this song, it always gets me! This is my preferred version now over the original. Way to close the set! PS- Thanks for coming out before your set to say Hello!
