Sebastian Bach accepts Fozzy singer Chris Jericho’s challenge to a “sing off”
In a rather strange exchange on Twitter, 49 year old Fozzy frontman and current AEW wrestling superstar Chris Jericho has challenged 52 year old and former Skid Row frontman Sebastian Bach to a “sing off.” Interestingly, Bach has publicly accepted the challenge (see screen shots of Twitter posts below) so we will have to wait and see whether it happens at a later date.
The following are excerpts of an article posted by Sleaze Roxx contributor James Walsh on his website WrestlingEpicenter.com on July 16, 2020:
“Those long haired Canadian rock and rollers are at it again!
AEW‘s Chris Jericho and former lead vocalist of Skid Row Sebastian Bach got into a heated exchange on Twitter yesterday. Jericho was looking a little bit like Sebastian Bach on AEW Dynamite last night which someone posted about on Twitter including tags to both men. Bach said he gets it a lot and Jericho joked that good looking guys look alike. But, it broke down in Tulsa… Or, Jacksonville… Or, on Twitter, I guess, from there.
However it devolved from there, as Bach accused Jericho of not actually singing his songs as part of the band Fozzy.
He wrote: “He definitely does considering that he mimes to a tape.”
Jericho replied: “I sing my ass off every night dude. Do you really wanna go there? Wow! My band is more popular than @sebastianbach !!”
It only continued from there, with Jericho at one point refusing to let it go and challenging Bach to a ‘sing off’.
He added: “Hi… I’m Chris “Milli Vanilli” Jericho. I have 5 top 30 singles in the last five years w my band @FOZZYROCK. I’m a huge fan of @sebastianbach … who had 3 top 30 singles 30 years ago. I always admired him as a singer and a friend! And I still do. I’ve seen the derogatory comments towards me from somebody I considered to be a friend. So with that in mind, I’ll be happy to have a SING OFF w @sebastianbach! No effects, no tuning, no bullshit. Bas is a great singer…but I’m better. You’ve got my number dude. Call me. I’ve never mimed anything ever! And I don’t use *** in a tweet ever. I will f***ing sing in your face anytime, anyplace dude. I’ve been a fan & a defender of u since day one…but don’t u ever question my rock abilities! And leave wrestling out of this…I can hit a G4 brah!””
