Nikki Sixx and Sebastian Bach War of Words Intensifies

(hennemusic) The war of words over Sebastian Bach's audition for Motley Crue following Vince Neil's departure in 1992 continues with bassist Nikki Sixx questioning the singer's motives via Twitter and Bach firing back with Sixx's own words from an interview.

"Someone needs attention to try and sell some books," tweeted Sixx on Friday. He then took a jab at Bach with "I always liked the term 'Washed Up'."

While Nikki Sixx continues to deny Sebastian Bach's recent claim that the band asked him to join Motley Crue, Bach has responded by posting a link to a 1994 MTV interview with Sixx where the bassist confirms the group did rehearse with the singer.

"Here is a fascinating interview with @nikkisixx where he describes the band Motley Crue Rehearsing with Sebastian Bach," posted the singer, adding, "ABSOLUTLEY TRUE. @nikkisixx tells it like it is! Sebastian Bach Book on Book Shelves Soon... #ForTheWin #NoBullsh*t #Oops #YouCantMakeThisStuffUp #IAintMadAtYa #NotLying #ItsOK #SomeoneOwesSomeoneAnApology #ThanksForTheHype #IRememberYou"."

In the 1994 interview with Riki Rachtman of MTV's "Headbanger's Ball", Sixx explained the band's need to carry on following the 1992 split with Vince Neil.

"We said we owed it to ourselves to at least see what it felt like [to have a different singer]," said Sixx. "At times when Vince was out of town or off doing whatever he was into doing, 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 [Corabi] and it was magic." A lot more including the video interview.
