Sebastian Bach Reveals He Was Once Asked to Join Motley Crue
It’s a small world in the music industry, and there was one point in Sebastian Bach‘s career where he was asked to join Motley Crue. During a conversation with fans via his Twitter account, the former Skid Row frontman reveals that back in the ’90s when the band split with Vince Neil, he was asked about taking on the vacancy.
The conversation began with Bach’s Twitter follower asking if he was ever considered to replace Neil in Motley Crue, to which he responded, “Not considered. Asked.” As expected, that three-word answer yielded a follow-up question about who asked and how close it came to happening.
Bach stated that Motley Crue asked and that he might have to include the story in his memoir, which he’s been writing. Then, addressing further inquiries, Bach stated, “The short answer is that I actually thought at the time this band, Skid Row, was better. Gee, I sure know how to pick ’em.”
Motley Crue eventually went with John Corabi to replace Neil, a decision that lasted for one album until the band reconciled with Neil. Meanwhile, Bach and Skid Row went through their own acrimonious split. However, Bach has rebounded nicely as a solo artist and is working on a new record. He just tweeted that his solo band is in the process of starting tracking on their fourth disc.
