Nikki Sixx Denies Motley Crue Asked Sebastian Bach to Join the Band
Earlier this week, Sebastian Bach responded to a question on Twitter, saying he was once asked to join Motley Crue. He said that back in the ’90s when the band split with singer Vince Neil, he was spoken to about joining. Now, Nikki Sixx says it didn’t happen.
Speaking on his ‘Sixx Sense’ radio show (via Blabbermouth), Sixx said, “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… ’89… ’90.. somewhere in there… ’91… [Sebastian] was in Skid Row and Skid Row was on top of the world.”
“And [Dave] Snake [Sabo] is their guitar player, one of my very best friends,” Sixx continued. “So I think I would remember that. 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.”
Sixx also said, “Sebastian Bach was never part of this master plan, that’s for sure. So I wanted people to know that.” Hear Sixx’s complete statement below.
