Sebastian Bach (Ex-Skid Row) And Ronnie Radke (Falling In Reverse) Feud Over Backing Tracks

Ex-Skid Row singer Sebastian Bach and Falling In Reverse vocalist Ronnie Radke have been feuding on Twitter. The war of words started after SiriusXM’s Eddie Trunk called out Falling In Reverse for cancelling their set at the WIIL Rock festival in Grayslake, IL due to missing laptops.

Trunk initially said the following:

“This is astonishing .. First I heard about this I thought it was a joke to wind me up. How much longer are fans, promoters , media, just going to accept the epidemic of live rock shows… not really being live? Paying your hard earned money to see a band play “live” that’s not truly live?! And there are countless bands in 2022 that hone their craft and play live! Tons! New and old !! Including the one that subbed for them in their slot, JACKYL . No laptop needed there! This is just unreal. But at least I give them credit for being honest. Wow. I am closer than ever to launching my own band. And I can’t sing or play a note .. simply amazing.”

Radke then fired back with the following:

“@EddieTrunk so you wanna talk hella Shit about laptops but go watch kiss lip sync, Steven Tyler plays the piano then half way through the song he stands on top of piano while it sill plays yet here we are acting like they all don’t use tracks you fucking idiot. Literal moron”

He also claimed Bach was using tracks in a video he shared on Twitter:

From there, the two have been having a back and forth:

Bach then challenged Radke in a since deleted tweet:

“It’s always so much fun to show someone what the world was like before the internet existed get f****** ready. Virtual reality is so much fun until you have to deal with actual reality. In your face. Can’t wait to meet you in person. Name the time and the place and I will introduce you to rock and roll in person man”

Radke fired back with:

Notably, Mötley Crüe’s Nikki Sixx seemingly defended Radke. He said the following:

“Keep beating that fake bullshit drum. Sounds so ‘Get Off My Lawn’. God forbid if some artists use technology as a creative tool on albums and in live settings. I get it. Just open your mind and stop fighting reality. Makes you sound outta touch and I like that you fly the rock flag.”

“This song is definitely one of the crazier ones on the album. It’s got a few different genre tangents that it goes off in.

Li commented:

“I’ve been a huge fan of Jason Becker since I was young, and it’s one of the biggest honors of my life to be able to help organize this tribute and raise money for him. I still have a Jason Becker poster in my studio in London. It’s been very inspiring to see everyone coming together to celebrate Jason.”

Becker added:

“I am so grateful for all the love and support everyone has given to me and my family. As far as selling my guitars being sad, and that I shouldn’t have to do it, I just want you to know that isn’t how I feel. It makes me happy to see others playing my music. I feel good about passing on my guitars, thinking they mean something to others. I can’t play them now, but other folks can. That’s a good thing. And, I want myself and my family not to have to worry about money, if possible. Thank you for all the love, I send it right back to you.”
