Sebastian Bach looks like he doesn’t like the idea of labeling ”hair metal”. He shouted out after a post on Dee Snider’s Twitter page.
Here’s what Snider posted:
“THIS IS A MUST HAVE FOR ANY FAN OF 80’S HAIR METAL!! This band inspired so many of us!! @slade Slade will compile all their global successes in ‘C*M ON FEEL THE HITZ'”.
After this post by Dee Snider, former Skid Row frontman commented:
“Is there really anybody in the world who really calls themselves a fan of ”80s Hair Metal’?”
In response to Sebastian‘s question, one fan wrote:
“Come on, Bas, compared to the crap they call music now. Hell yes, I am a fan!”
Bach wrote back:
“So then is Slade called 70s hair metal now then? If someone [sick] called me ‘hair metal’ when I started out in Skid Row I might not have done this for a living”
The same fan wrote back: “Don’t you think Glam developed into hair metal?”
Bach replied back: “No I do not think that Glam has anything to do with hair metal. Glam rockers are proud people not talentless posers which is what those terms represent”
The fan then wrote, “You know back then, someone, somewhere definitely called you guys a hair metal band”, causing Bach to fire back: “No, definitely nobody did. You were obviously not there. Believe me I was.If Skid Row was called an ’80s hair metal’ band when we started I would not have joined the band. If Dee would have rapped in ‘you can’t stop rock n’ roll’ about ‘hair metal’ I would not have turned it up”
