The back-and-forth between Motley Crue bassist Nikki Sixx and ex-Skid Row singer Sebastian Bach has continued through the weekend. After Bach stated via his Twitter account that he was asked to replace Vince Neil in Motley Crue, Sixx quickly claimed that Bach was never offered the gig. Each side has been attempting to win the argument ever since, and there's a new chapter to report in the Bach vs. Sixx saga.
According to former Skid Row singer Sebastian Bach, "Nikki Sixx's 'claim' that Sebastian Bach's 'claim' is 'absolutely not true' is 'absolutely not true.'"
