Motley Crue

After firing singer Vince Neil in the early nineties, Mötley Crüe hired John Corabi, with whom they recorded their self-titled sixth album.

Although the album failed to live up to the band’s previous successes, it was a solid collection of songs, containing the excellent “Hooligan’s Holiday.” Now ex-Skid Row singer Sebastian Bach has revealed that he was actually asked to join the Crüe before Corabi was considered, but turned it down.

Bach was recently asked by a fan via Twitter if he was ever considered as Neil’s replacement in Mötley Crüe, to which Bach responded that he was in fact asked to join the band. When asked to elaborate on why he didn’t take the gig, Bach somewhat sarcastically replied: “The short answer is that I actually thought at the time this band, Skid Row, was better. Gee, I sure know how to pick ‘em.”
