Sebastian Bach Was Asked to Join Motley Crue?
For many Motley Crue fans, the sacking of Vince Neil in 1992 remains one of the low points of the band's career. His replacement, John Corabi, is often derided by followers of the band, who were more than happy when Vince Neil returned to the fold in 1997.

As Skid Row singer Sebastian Bach has revealed, however, it could have been a very different story. HenneMusic is reporting that, in a recent Q&A session on Twitter, Bach reveals that he had been considered as the original replacement for Neil, but ultimately turned it down.

When asked by a fan if he had ever been considered to replace Neil, Bach's answer was succinct: "Not considered. Asked." In a series of follow-up questions, the singer offered his reasons for turning down Motley Crue: "The short answer is that I actually thought at the time this band Skid Row was better," before adding, "Gee I sure know how to pick 'em."

Strangely enough Vince Neil and Sebastian Bach had previously shared a stage, the singers fronting an all star band for a rendition of Led Zeppelin's Rock and Roll at the Moscow Music Peace Festival in 1989. Whether or not Bach's addition to Motley Crue would have changed the fortunes of a Neil-less version of the band, we can only speculate...

What do you think? Would Sebastian Bach have made a good replacement for Vince Neil? Or is the only true Motley Crue the classic Vince, Mick, Nikki and Tommy line-up? Let us know in the comments.
