Slaphappy Skid Row front man Sebastian Bach may have washed up on the set of the Gilmore Girls , but the hirsute homophobe still has some fight in him yet. More than a decade after his 1989 arrest for hurling a beer bottle into a hapless concertgoer’s face, sources say the rocker was forcibly evicted after giving an encore performance at a concert headlined by fellow metal relics, Mötley Crüe.
Bach’s latest outburst occurred on August 17th, when Mötley Crüe singer Vince Neil invited his old pal to the Atlantic City stop of their “Carnival of Sins” tour. Arriving at the show with his wife, Maria , Bach took a place in the VIP section next to the Crüe front man’s family. That was apparently too close for comfort for the Neils, who were aghast at the prospect of sitting next to the big haired brawler. “They can’t stand Sebastian,” says a source close to the family. “He’s a pompous asshole–and those are his good qualities.” Attempting to keep the peace, Neil asked his handlers to gently move the unpopular couple to what was billed as an “even more exclusive VIP section” on the edge of the stage. Humiliated by the perceived slight, Bach went ballistic.
“He started cursing at the band while they were playing onstage,” says one shocked source. “He started throwing anything around him at Vince Neil–cups, beer cans, soda, and food. He just lost it. Security finally stepped in and carried him out. He just kept screaming, ‘Mötley Crüe is over! Mötley Crüe is over!’ Vince was friends with Sebastian, but this is the end.”
A publicist for Mötley Crüe declined to comment on the incident, and a spokesperson for Bach did not return calls. But luckily for music history preservationists, we hear that drummer Tommy Lee ‘s reality-show crew caught the entire episode on tape. Look for it to pop up on Behind the Music sometime soon.
