FOZZY singer Chris Jericho recently said that he doesn’t know if he is still friends with Sebastian Bach, less than a month after the former SKID ROW frontman accused him of using pre-recorded vocal tracks during live performances.
This whole thing kinda got started back on July 16 when Jericho challenged Bach to a “singoff” with “no effects, no tuning, no bullshit” in response to Sebastian’s allegation that Chris “mimes to a tape” during FOZZY’s live shows. “Bas is a great singer…but I’m better,” Chris wrote on Twitter.” The wrestler-turned-singer added: “I’ve never mimed anything ever! I will fucking 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!” Bach fired back: ” You’re full of s*** bro. Every clip on the Internet is you miming to a tape. I will sing in your f****** face anytime. Wrestling is not rock and roll. I will show you f****** rock and roll. Check your texts set up The Sing-Off I am ready when you are”.
Well recently Jericho spoke with Loudwire and was asked about his feud with Bach, to which he replied: “Yeah, I really don’t know if we’re friends anymore, but I wish nothing but the best for him, and that’s basically all I want to say.”
Guitarist Rich Ward, Jericho’s FOZZY bandmate, called Bach “universally disliked” and said that seeing Bach “publicly go after the only guy that I have ever witnessed utter a nice word about him is sad.”
Sebastian replied, saying: “I’m not trying to beat anybody at anything. I’m actually trying to say hey Chris maybe you’re right maybe I’ll stop singing live and prance around while the tape is playing just like you do Chris. I’m tired of trying so hard it’s like beating my head against the wall.”
After a self-proclaimed Bach fan called Sebastian “an asshat” on Twitter for firing “the first shots” in his war of words with Jericho, Bach came back with: “Hey man f*** you. I have spent my life learning how to sing live on stage. When someone comes along and mimes to a tape it sucks for all of the rest of us that don’t. You want to go see a wrestling match good. Don’t call it rock and roll”
