  NIKKI SIXX's 'CLAIM' THAT SEBASTIAN BACH'S 'CLAIM' IS "ABSOLUTELY NOT TRUE" IS "ABSOLUTELY NOT TRUE"
20th September 2013

sebastian bach



Claim and counter-claim, he said this, he didn't say that and the claim that this is absolutely not true is absolutely not true.

Last week Sebastian Bach said that Motley Crue invited him to join them in 1992 after they sacked long time singer Vince Neil. You can read the full article here.

Crue bassist Nikki Sixx completely denied Bach's claim and said he was unable to remember any sort of offer made to the Skid Row singer. Bach then took to his personal Facebook page and typed out an in-depth statement about his version of what really happened between him and Motley Crue, claiming that he actually rehearsed with Crue at one point.

Article continues below...



Bach writes the following. We left the spelling and grammar exactly as he wrote it:

NIKKI SIXX's 'CLAIM' THAT SEBASTIAN BACH's 'CLAIM' IS "ABSOLUTLEY NOT TRUE" is "ABSOLUTLEY NOT TRUE"

Well, it's not every day you wake up to one of your childhood heroes calling you a liar. Either that, or Nikki Sixx's memory needs some serious 'refreshing'.

What the f— is Twitter? Twitter is the new rock magazine of the modern age. When I was a kid, we had magazines and journalists and interviews and articles and pinups and posters to follow our favourite artists. Nowadays? Twitter is actually the new rock magazine.

Last week I answered one tweet with three words. Some fan asked me if I was "ever approached to join Motley Crue". My tweet, in response to this, was: "not approached. asked." Literally three words.

The next day I woke up and saw that my tweet had actually become headline news on every single rock music website. Every single rock music radio station. Every single rock news outlet, radio, web, or print, was reporting "Sebastian Bach asked to join Motley Crue". I laughed that all of these supposed "news outlets" have nothing better to do then go to my Twitter page to manufacture 'news' stories. None of these "news stories" had any actual quotes by me. Or anything that I actually said. Every single article just copied and pasted my tweet. It is incredible to me that my Twitter feed is a source of 'news' for every rock news outlet around the world.

Everybody knows that Nikki Sixx is in control of Motley Crue. When I woke up that next day and saw every headline of every news outlet "Sebastian Bach asked to join Motley Crue" "Motley Crue Sebastian Bach blah blah blah blah blah" I was laughing because this is extremely old news. I could envision Nikki Sixx seeing his band's name 'Motley Crue' in every single news article and saying "hey, I am Motley Crue! What the f— is all this?"

And now today I wake up to the headline that Nikki Sixx himself is on his radio station actually talking about my tweet. It is incredible to me that Nikki Sixx, one of my childhood heroes, would go on his radio station to talk about one single tweet that I made. I did not realize that my tweets were this newsworthy. It blows my mind that Nikki Sixx is on his radio station talking about one tweet that I made in response to a fan.

Why people are constantly fixated on what happened in 1991 is completely beyond me. But that's just the way it is. What did they say about the 80s.? If you remembered it, you weren't really there? A perfect example of this would be Nikki Sixx's book "The Heroin Diaries". In his 'diary', Nikki tells a story about the 'Theater of Pain' Tour & how I kicked in the window of the CNE Stadium door on the afternoon of the show and let all of the fans in at three in the afternoon. Being that his book is a "diary", you would think that this would be accurate information. But in actual fact, this whole incident did not even happen on the 'Theater of Pain' tour. In fact, this incident occurred on the "Shout at the Devil" tour. About 3 or 4 years before "Theatre of Pain". So does that mean Nikki Sixx's 'claim' that his 'book' is a 'diary' is 'absolutely not true'? Do I think Nikki Sixx is actually 'lying'? Not really. I am sure that all of the heroin and partying and drinking would affect a man's memory. The simple fact is that, I did indeed kick in the doors… on the shout at the devil tour. Not the theater of pain tour. Who even cares? What does this even matter, anyways?

Vince Neil is the singer of Motley Crue. He always has been, and he always will be. Vince Neil is the voice, frontman, & singer of Motley Crue. Now & forever.

So, Nikki Sixx is either calling me a liar, or his memory is wrong in this instance. I am willing to assume the latter.

The fact of the matter is I was not only asked to join Motley Crue... I actually REHEARSED with the band Motley Crue. I was driven to rehearsal by Tommy Lee and I spent a full day singing the Motley Crue set with the band Motley Crue. In front of their whole road crew. I remember the songs that Nikki asked me to sing that day. I remember the whole road crews' 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 Motley Crue. I remember his exact words, that he said to me in front of his whole road crew, Tommy, and Mick as well. It's not every day that your hero asks you to join his band.

I remember everything about that day... including what kind of sandwich Tommy Lee had for lunch. I will tell this complete story in my upcoming book. This was not just a simple offer to 'join a band'. I rehearsed with the band. I spoke to their management on the phone days later about Nikki's offer. It was a big deal involving record companies, management companies, and all sorts of business dealings. Maybe Nikki doesn't remember that day. But I find it hard to believe that I would spend a day rehearsing with the band, at their official rehearsal hall, do the set with them, in front of their whole road crew, and Nikki doesn't remember this? Oh well. I will tell the complete story of Nikki offering me to join Motley Crue in my upcoming book, which will be arriving on bookshelves soon. I am not simply 'making this up'.

Thank you all for enjoying my Twitter page so very much. 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.





WACKEN WINTER NIGHTS IS HEAVY METAL WONDERLAND

wacken

Wacken Winter Nights 2018 takes place between February 23rd and 25th 2018 and the great news is that you can now experience a full-on, top class German Metal Festival easily and affordably.

It only takes an hour to fly to Hamburg from London and we've had longer journeys than that within the capital and they were certainly more expensive than the £33 air ticket that just appeared in our 'flights to Wacken Winter Nights' search.

wacken

Wacken Winter Nights is organised by the same team who are responsible for the world's greatest Metal festival, Wacken-Open-Air and the 2018 bill includes Skyclad, Orphaned Land, Elvenking, Finntroll, Grave Digger, Aeverium, Comes Vagantes, Coppelius, Corvus Corax, Die Pressgëng, Elvellon, Heimataerde, Hell-O-Matic, Ignis Fatuu, Ingrimm, Irdorath, Johnny Deathshadow, Krayenzeit, Letzte Instanz, Mr Hurley und die Pulveraffen, Pampatut, Pat Razket, Schandmaul, Sündenrausch, The Aberlour's, The Moon And The Nightspirit, Torfrock, Visions Of Atlantis, Vroudenspil, Wind Rose and more.



Besides this rich billing of superb Metal bands, there is so much more to see in the festival area including the medieval market and also the walking acts and jugglers you will meet at the theme worlds, including Robert Blake, three-time World Cup winner of street magic.

Wacken Winter Nights is something not to be missed and you can check out the amazing ticket and accommodation prices right here.

We just priced up the whole four day trip with hotels, flights, shuttles and festival tickets for less than £300 and we don't think you will get a better value festival than that, anywhere.
