Sebastian Bach Clarifies Motley Crue Autobiography Comment

September 2, 2012

Sebastian Bach recently revealed that he has been approached to write a memoir, which he predicted would make Motley Crue’s ‘The Dirt’ “look clean” if he decided to follow through with it. However the former Skid Row frontman now claims that the press twisted around what he actually said.

“Why does the press always put words in my mouth? You would think I would know better by now,” states Sebastian Bach. “Someone asked me about my book & my answer was exactly this: “I could make The Dirt look clean if I wanted to”. Now, every single thing I read about my book says, “Sebastian says his book will surpass Motley Crue’s The Dirt”. Only thing is… I never said that. I don’t even know what kind of book it will be yet. My book has nothing to do with Motley Crue! I love the Crue but I have not decided if I want my book to be full-on burrito-fucking madness, or something different. I have never used the words “Motley Crue” when talking about my book, until this very post. Thank you, I feel much better.”

Last month Bach told The Macomb Daily, “It seems like such an overwhelming project, so don’t hold your breath for it. It has to blow me away before I release it. I want to write it by myself; I look at Duff McKagen’s book, Dee Snider’s book, they wrote them by themselves and they’re amazing books. So I might try, but if it doesn’t put goosebumps on my arm I won’t put it out.”

Late last year Bach told QMI Agency that he’s hoping to write his memoirs sooner than later, with Larry Sloman, the same man who helped pen Scar Tissue, the autobiography of Red Hot Chili Peppers singer Anthony Kiedis.

“Scar Tissue had a lot to do with Anthony Kiedis’ relationship with his dad, and I had a very ‘strong’ relationship with my dad,” Bach said. “(My dad) was a famous painter in Canada, he owned Art Space in Peterborough in the ’70s and we came from California, and we were like freaks in Peterborough. The Peterborough Examiner — all the articles about when my dad first got there, it was like, ‘The hippies are coming to town!’ I swear.”
