There’s a war happening right now on social media between Chris Jericho & Sebastian Bach.
Earlier the two exchanged words on the internet on lip-syncing.
Now Chris Jericho has responded back to Sebastian Bach. Here’s the statement:
“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 bullsh*t. Bas is a great singer…but I’m better. You’ve got my number dude. Call me.”
Bach then shot back:
“Where is the derogatory comment? All I asked is to see one single clip of you singing live. 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.”
“I’ve never mimed anything ever! And I don’t use *** in a tweet ever. I will f*cking 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!”
Bach then wrote: “You’re full of s*** bro. Check your texts set up The Sing-Off I am ready when you are”
Another Jericho fan took the FOZZY vocalist’s side, writing: “Take it as a compliment Champion – your singing is so spot on it sounds like the record Red heart”, prompting Bach to respond: “That’s because the record is fake and the live show is fake”
Yet another person wrote: “Dont eeeeeevvvvverrr question the ayatollah of rock and rolla”, which was met with “The Ayatollah of rock and rolla doesn’t know anything about rock and rolla” from Bach.
Sebastian, who has been outspoken about rock bands using pre-recorded backing tracks during live shows, then added:
“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.”
FOZZY guitarist Rich Ward also weighed in on the dispute, tweeting:
“Any time I have witnessed Sebastian‘s name come up in a group setting, the room enthusiastically lines up to say the worst things about him. He’s universally disliked, never witnessed a more unifying topic. @IAmJericho has ALWAY come to the guy’s defense and shuts it down. Jericho is loyal and was always quick to defend a guy that he considered a friend. Seeing Sebastian publicly go after the only guy that I have ever witness utter a nice word about him is sad.”
When a Twitter user pointed out that Sebastian Bach is “trending” on the platform, Bach wrote: “I don’t know why I’m trending I’m just drunk sitting alone in my bed”
It began on Wednesday (July 15), when one fan commented on the social media platform that Jericho “is starting to look like” the former SKID ROW singer.
Sebastian weighing in:
“Every single day for the last two or three years somebody tells me this”
After another person told Sebastian, ” You partied too much Jericho has you beat”, Bach came back with “He definitely does considering that he mimes to a tape”.
A third fan told Sebastian: “You know [Chris] tours with his band, right? I’ve seen him live a couple of times. He’s not lip syncing”, to which, Bach replied:
“Cool let’s see a clip of that then because every single clip I have seen is Milli vanilli,” referring to the duo which infamously had to return their Grammy Awards more than 30 years ago after it was revealed they didn’t sing on their album.
