Sebastian Bach guitarist Nick Sterling is sitting out the last couple of shows on the singer’s current North American tour due to an apparent contract dispute.
"Unfortunately, I will not be performing tonight at Nokia Live," Sterling wrote on his Facebook page before Sebastian's Los Angeles concert on Friday. "There were some contractual issues that we just couldn't work out. No hard feelings."
Friday’s concert was being broadcast live by AXS TV, formerly known as HDNet.
Bach brought in a couple of guest guitarists for the L.A. date, including Jinxx (Black Veil Brides) and Brent Woods (Wildside, Vince Neil), and raved about it afterwards.
“Words cannot describe how thankful and appreciative I am to the band Black Veil Brides for helping me out in Los Angeles the other night,” Bach wrote on Saturday. “Jinxx the guitar player came up on stage and kicked ass on a couple of tunes and looked incredible in his full stage regalia. Ashley came up on Youth Gone Wild it was totally great. These guys are such an awesome band and such true rockers and very good friends too. Thank you so much Jinxx, Ashley and CC for coming to the show. I am proud to call you freaks my true rockin' brothers!”
Bach has a more dates to play over the next few weeks; no word on who will be handling guitar duties in Sterling’s absence, or if he’ll rejoin the band at some point.
