(hennemusic) Motley Crue bassist Nikki Sixx is denying Sebastian Bach's recent claim that the band asked him to replace Vince Neil in 1992 and Bach has fired back over Sixx's claims. When asked by a fan on Twitter if he was ever considered to replace Neil, Bach replied, "Not considered. Asked."
Sixx addressed Bach's claim on his Sixx Sense radio show. "I read something online. It's not true, and I wanna talk about it a little bit," began Sixx. "Sebastian Bach, who was the lead singer from Skid Row and I still think he should still be in Skid Row, and I've talked to all of them about that many times; they just can't along he says that Motley Crue wanted him to replace Vince Neil. And I'm just gonna say right now that is absolutely not true."
"At the time that Vince left Motley Crue in 1990
'90.. somewhere in there
[Sebastian] was in Skid Row and Skid Row was on top of the world. And [Dave] Snake [Sabo], their guitar player, was one of my very best friends. So I think I would remember that," continued the bassist. "I don't know where Sebastian got this. I think maybe Sebastian wanted to be in Motley Crue and just forgot to tell us that he wanted to be in Motley Crue when we were looking for a singer. Which I don't think we would have taken him anyway, just because of our friends from Skid Row." He had more to say here.
On Thursday, Bach wrote a lengthy Facebook post entitled "NIKKI SIXX's 'CLAIM' THAT SEBASTIAN BACH's 'CLAIM' IS "ABSOLUTLEY NOT TRUE" is "ABSOLUTLEY NOT TRUE", refuting comments made by the bassist.
"Well, it's not every day you wake up to one of your childhood heroes calling you a liar," began Bach. "Either that, or Nikki Sixx's memory needs some serious 'refreshing'." Read the rest of his post here.
