Ted Nugent - Ted Nugent Attacks Sebastian Bach Over Sobriety Battle
Ted Nugent seems keen to start a war of words with former Skid Row frontman Sebastian Bach after criticising the rocker for struggling with his sobriety battle.
The former reality show co-stars banged heads on 2006's Supergroup when Nugent took Bach aside and warned him about his drinking problem as they attempted to put a band together from scratch, while living together on the series, and now the Cat Scratch Fever hitmaker insists Bach has learned nothing.
He tells Radio.com: "Sebastian Bach is a great guy. I love the guy and he’s incredibly gifted and a gentleman for the most part - but he’s weak. He doesn’t understand the concept of the body as a sacred temple. He doesn’t understand accountability and he doesn’t understand how his indulgences and his poisons ruin his life, his relationships, his marriage and his musical capabilities.
"I love you, but when you’re the drunk Sebastian Bach, you’re nowhere near the Sebastian Bach you are when you’re clean and sober."
Nugent reveals Bach is the latest star who has experienced his tough love, adding, "I told Jimi Hendrix he was gonna die. I told Bon Scott he was gonna die. I told Keith Moon he was gonna die. They all thought I was an idiot. They called me an a**hole and a loser because I wouldn’t drink and puke and drool.
"I didn’t take it personally. I knew drugs had destroyed their sense of logic and their sense of decency."
