Amidst Sebastian Bach and Skid Row reunion, we have Ted Nugent and Bach slamming each other with some statements.
Recently Ted Nugent slammed Sebastian Bach as “stupid” and “inconsequential”.
This happened after Sebastian Bach implied that Ted was racist.
Ted was interviewed on QFM96‘s “Torg & Elliott” radio show. Here’s the statement from Ted:
“No, I have not heard that. He falls in the ‘inconsequential’ column. It’s true — the guy smokes so much d*pe. People like Sebastian Bach will literally listen to me praise Chuck Berry and Bo Diddley and Little Richard and James Brown and Wilson Pickett, they’ll listen to me praise these black artists and literally call it racist. I mean, how much d*pe do you have to smoke to be that stupid?”
Ted further added:
“Literally, I’m the one during that TV show that pounded home that we cannot lose touch with our black founding fathers, that if you don’t have that groove of the black artists, if you don’t have the Chuck Berry and Bo Diddley and Little Richard and James Brown groove, your music is worthless. That’s what I drove home. And he would call that being a racist? This is funnier than Richard Pryor‘s afro catching fire. I mean, how stupid can you get?”
The exchange of words between Ted and Sebastian happened due to Bach’s words in his 2016 memoir, “18 And Life On Skid Row”.
Bach wrote how Nugent allegedly went on a racist tirade on the set of the VH1 reality show “SuperGroup”, causing Sebastian to step into the role of unlikely hero to the African-American crew by walking out and going to the producer, refusing to continue working with the Nuge.
Sebastian Bach and Skid Row are household names in the history of rock music. Skid Row’s first two albums were instant classics with the band achieving commercial success in the late 1980s and early 1990s. The first two albums titled Skid Row (1989) and Slave to the Grind (1991) were certified multi-platinum. Especially ‘Slave To The Grind’, which touched number one on the Billboard 200. After parting ways with Sebastian Bach, Bach has been playing the songs live with his solo band once in a while. Fans have been craving for a reunion between Skid Row and Sebastian Bach which sadly didn’t happen.
