During an interview with Autralia's Loud, former SKID ROW singer Sebastian Bach spoke about the recent sixteenth anniversary of the September 11 terrorist attacks and the new slew of conspiracy theories that tend to surface every year. Asked what his take is on "that type of thinking," Bach responded: "Well, I would say that if you watch all those programs [about 9/11], it's pretty obvious that a plane did not crash into the Pentagon, because there's no plane.
"I wrote in my book what I did on that day," he continued. "I was driving my car as far away from New York as possible, because I live in New Jersey, so I was trying to get as far away as possible and I was listening to the radio in the car the whole time, and I heard them say, 'We have just heard that the U.S. government has just shot down a plane that was headed for the White House.' The newscaster said that, but I only heard that once.
"I don't know if there's a conspiracy, but I heard them they say that, while I was driving, myself. There's all sorts conspiracy theories, but that was weird, that the newscaster said that."
Almost three thousand were killed and six thousand injured on September 11 2001 when American Airlines Flight 11 and United Airlines Flight 175 were crashed into the North and South towers of the World Trade Center in New York.
They were followed by American Airlines Flight 77, which crashed into the Pentagon.
A fourth initially steered toward Washington but crashed into a field after its passengers overcame the hijackers.
9/11 conspiracy theories have become social phenomena, despite lack of support from expert scientists, engineers, and historians.
Despite claims that there was no plane wreckage at the Pentagon, Allyn E. Kilsheimer, the first structural engineer to arrive at the Pentagon following the attack to help coordinate the rescue mission, said there "was absolutely a plane."
"I saw the marks on the plane wing on the face of the building. I picked up parts of the plane with the airline markings on them. I held in my hand the tail section of the plane, and I found the black box," Kilsheimer told Popular Mechanics magazine.
Sebastian recently confirmed that he was preparing to make the follow-up to his 2014 album "Give 'Em Hell".
The singer's autobiography, "18 And Life On Skid Row", came out last December via Dey Street Books (formerly It Books), an imprint of HarperCollins Publishers.
