Apparently Nikki Sixx and Sebastian Bach have very different memories of the early '90s.
Bach tweeted last week that he was asked to join Motley Crue when Vince Neil left over two decades ago, but he decided to stay with Skid Row.
Sixx responded on his Sixx Sense radio show, "At the time that Vince left...[Sebastian] was in Skid Row and Skid Row was on top of the world. And [Dave] Snake [Sabo], their guitar player, was one of my very best friends. So I think I would remember that... I don't know where Sebastian got this. I think maybe Sebastian wanted to be in Motley Crue and just forgot to tell us that he wanted to be in Motley Crue when we were looking for a singer. Which I don't think we would have taken him, anyway, just because of our friends from Skid Row."
Now Bach has responded on his Facebook page by saying perhaps Sixx's memory is faulty. He writes, "The fact of the matter is I was not only asked to join Motley Crue, I actually rehearsed with [them]. I was driven to rehearsal by Tommy Lee, and I spent a full day singing the Motley Crue set with the band Motley Crue. In front of their whole road crew."
Bach says he recalls the exact offer Sixx made to him and that "I remember everything about that day, including what kind of sandwich Tommy Lee had for lunch. I will tell this complete story in my upcoming book."
