As Sebastian Bach’s online dispute with Motley Crue bassist Nikki Sixx over his early 90s audition with the band continues, the former Skid Row singer covered the early Crue classic, “Live Wire”, with Sin City Sinners in Las Vegas on the weekend.
“Yes, I wanna do a Motley Crue cover because I love Motley Crue,” Bach told the crowd at Count's Vamp'd Rock Bar & Grill on Saturday. “If you go read the internet…lots of stuff going on,” he added.
While Sixx continues to deny Bach's recent claim that the band asked him to join Motley Crue, Bach fired the latest shot by posting a link to a 1994 MTV interview with Sixx where the bassist confirms the group did indeed 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 #NoBullshit #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 (starts at 3:50 in the video below).
“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."
