SIXX Says It’s ‘Absolutely Not True’ MÖTLEY CRÜE Wanted BACH To Replace NEIL

MÖTLEY CRÜE bassist Nikki Sixx has dismissed as "absolutely not true" Sebastian Bach's claim that the former SKID ROW singer was once asked to replace Vince Neil in MÖTLEY CRÜE. Neil was fired from MÖTLEY CRÜE in 1992 due to personal differences and was replaced by John Corabi. With Corabi on vocals, MÖTLEY CRÜE released one critically acclaimed full-length CD, which ended up being a commercial failure in the wake of grunge despite a Top-Ten placing on the album chart. Asked by a fan on Twitter if he was ever considered to replace Vince in MÖTLEY CRÜE, Bach replied that he was not just "considered" but that he was actually "asked" by CRÜE if he wanted to join the band as its new lead singer. He then added that the story of how close he came to becoming a member of MÖTLEY CRÜE might be included in his upcoming autobiography, which he is currently working on and for which he recently revealed that he had "a big offer from a big book company." When another fan pressed Bach on why the singer turned down the offer to join MÖTLEY CRÜE, Bach replied: "The short answer is that I actually thought at the time this band SKID ROW was better." Sebastian then added, "Gee, I sure know how to pick 'em." Speaking on a recent edition of his "Sixx Sense" radio show, Sixx addressed Bach's comments, telling his listeners: "I read something online. It's not true, and I wanna talk about it a little bit. "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 MÖTLEY CRÜE wanted him to replace Vince Neil. And I'm just gonna say right now that is absolutely not true.

SEBASTIAN BACH Says He Was ‘Asked’ To Replace VINCE NEIL In MÖTLEY CRÜE

Former SKID ROW singer Sebastian Bach says that he was asked to replace Vince Neil in MÖTLEY CRÜE but that he turned down the opportunity because he thought his situation at the time was better. Neil was fired from MÖTLEY CRÜE in 1992 due to personal differences and was replaced by John Corabi. With Corabi on vocals, MÖTLEY CRÜE released one critically acclaimed full-length CD, which ended up being a commercial failure in the wake of grunge despite a Top-Ten placing on the album chart.

Sebastian then added, "Gee, I sure know how to pick 'em." In a November 2012 interview with the "Eddie Trunk Rocks" radio show on New York's Q104.3 FM, Bach stated about his former band: "I will always be the singer of SKID ROW, no matter what. There's no other guy. It's like… John Corabi, I love ya — it's great — but where's Vince? I mean, that's the way it is. Walk down the street with me and count

MÖTLEY CRÜE’s VINCE NEIL: ‘We Have A Lot To Be Proud Of In This Band’

MÖTLEY CRÜE singer Vince Neil recently spoke to Atlantic City Weeklyabout the band's continued success after going through "more ups and downs" in their three-decade-long career "than an elevator" "This is a brotherhood," Neil said. "You have your ups and downs. But we always make it through. We love making music with each other. It's pretty simple. Anybody who has been in a band for a while can relate to what I'm talking about. We've had our share of rough patches. I was out of the band for a few years and so was Tommy [Lee, drums], but we all know that this band works best when it's the four of us together. We were younger when we went through some things and I think it helps that we're all older and wiser."? Speaking about the pedal-to-the-metal lifestyle MÖTLEY CRÜE has enjoyed since the mid-'80s days of rock and roll debauchery and Sunset Strip excess, Neil said: "You look at the drugs and the drinking and it's amazing that we're all still here. We survived some dark days. We could have died many times from many different things. We made it through it and now we're in control and we're not going to stop living. None of us have that death wish. I think we're a little smarter at this age."? Vince also confirmed plans for MÖTLEY CRÜE to make a film version of the band's biography, "The Dirt: Confessions Of The World's Most Notorious Rock Band", which will hit screens in the next year or two.?
