The Daily Fail: Sebastian Bach
There was a time, even post-Skid Row, when Sebastian Bach was still a pretty endearing character. His various stints as a talking head on VH1 talk shows made the former hair metal singer seem rather charming. His "mother trucker" shout, complete with metal horns, was a particular fave.
But, of course Skid Row was over 20 years ago and his stint on VH1 was at least 10. And a lot has changed since then.
His stint on Supergroup made him seem like a petulant, drunken and goofy former metal-light once-was. Sure, it wasn't the first knock against him as a has-been--but it was a pretty big blow.
Now the singer has been arrested for biting the hand of a bar employee after getting into an argument. I'm sure, at one point, the words, "I'm Sebastian Fucking Bach!" were yelled, followed by "Who?"
To add insult to injury, once the police showed up they found weed on him. If he were as popular as, says, Lil Wayne or Billie Joe Armstrong, it might help to build up that bad boy rep. Unfortunately, now that Bach has been out of the limelight for quite a while, it just seems tragic and a little sad.
For that, Bach fails.
