Former SKID ROW frontman Sebastian Bach has posted the following message on Twitlonger.com, a related Twitter site that allows one to send tweets that require more than 140 characters:
"I can't believe it when so-called 'fans' go out of their way to say hurtful rotten bullshit to people that I care about, ONLY because I care about them. You know who you are.
"You are in no way a 'fan' if you think that I do not deserve happiness in my life.
"There are no 'home wreckers' in my life. My home has been 'wrecked' since last April. I am fucking divorced. I did not date any girls at all until after the divorce papers were filed in a court of law.
"It shocks me when I find a modicum of happiness, only to be thwarted by people who say they like my music? How fucked up is that?
"The happier I am, the more music I can make.
"I have been going through complete misery since last April.
"You wanna be a true fan? Try saying something positive to someone who keeps me from being completely alone. That would be a lot better than me trying to explain 'not all my fans are assholes, I swear.'"
Bach has just entered a Los Angeles studio with his new, young, virtuosic guitarist Nick Sterling and producer Bob Marlette (BLACK SABBATH, SHINEDOWN, ATREYU, FILTER) to fine-tune the material that will appear on his next CD, tentatively due this summer via the Italian label Frontiers Records.
