just hours ago Falling in the opposite direction It was supposed to appear Wale Rock This past September festival at the Lake County Fairgrounds in Grayslake, Illinois, Radke His bandmates canceled their performance because their laptops—which the musicians use to “play” their show—had gone missing. in time, Radke He said in a video message that he and his bandmates “have no other choice” because “as a band in 2022, you need your laptops. It’s like driving a car without an engine.”
after two days , SiriusXM radio personality Eddie Trunkwho has been an outspoken critic of rock bands using pre-recorded tracks in their live performances, has criticized Falling in the opposite direction To cancel the concert, write on his social media: “How long will fans, promoters, and the media accept the plague of live rock shows… that’s not really broadcast? That’s not really live?!” In response, Radke He wrote: “EddieTrunk so you want to talk to hella chit about laptops but go watch lip sync kissing, Stephen Tyler He plays the piano and then halfway through the song he stands on top of the piano while he’s still playing, but here we’re acting like they all don’t use pieces you fucking idiot. Maniac.” He also shared a video of trunk an introduction BachThe band soloed at a show, and it included the following message: “EddieTrunk presents @sebastianbach using tracks, both idiots talking shit about me using tracks can’t make this shit.” Shortly thereafter, Bach He fired back, writing: “You idiot, are you trying to say you think I use riffs on stage? @EddieTrunk how fun a****** is that”. Radke He then replied, “There’s fake crowd cheering in your intro tracks and also fake drums, that shit ain’t real, you use fake audience cheering as you walk on a silly track and then you use the riffs.”
Things escalated further Bach “Watch what happens when track bands call real musicians idiots,” he tweeted, prompting Radke To write: “Fucking a bitch would you do that? You disrespect a whole generation of people after you use laptops synth and backing tracks all while using fake audience on the track as you walk and fuck you and fuck you” Eddie TrunkBitch ass.” Sebastian He later added, “It’s always fun to show someone what the world was like before there was the internet, get ready to have fun. Virtual reality is so much fun until you have to deal with the actual reality. In your face. I can’t wait to meet you in person. Mention the time and place and I’ll rock ‘n’ roll for you.” Roll personally.
Radke Address his feud with Bach In an interview with collapse Detroit WRIF a radio station. He said, “I stand my ground and stand by what I believe in. [Sebastian] He was so rude it’s rude. Some notable figures in music DMed [direct messaged] I. Made me feel so much better. I don’t want to contact them. But they were on my side. Even some famous wrestlers – some leaked Legendary gladiators – beat me too. And they were, like, “He’s always been an asshole.” I’m, like, “What do you mean?” I didn’t know this. I have no idea. He was like, ‘Yeah. Look.’ And he shows me his screen[shots]. I’m, like, “Oh my God, he’s so rude to a lot of people. Oh my God.”
Regarding how the war of words between him and Bach seem , Radke He said, “It started because I said I couldn’t play a show because our laptops are like our engine, and I stand by it. Our biggest song is almost multi-platinum, it was number one on the radio, and 60 percent of the song is literally a beat rap. Am I supposed to?” , like … they don’t get it; they don’t get it. The grade is slippery or motley crow. until motley crow – Nikki Six Come to my defense, man. I think this is very cool. He defended me, too.”
“For anyone who’s a dinosaur who doesn’t understand what I’m saying now – it’s literally a dinosaur – every band I’ve heard in the last 20 years has laptops. Kiss – I mean, all these old gangs have laptops.
We use laptops. Ronnie has been confirmed. “I wouldn’t go on stage without a laptop. It has a click track to keep time. It has rap beats we can’t perform without. The fans will be our biggest hit.” very Let down if we don’t play “The People’s Monster” or ‘Voices in my head’. It’s just a new mix. It’s like a different way of working. So it is he – It’s like an engine. Without it, we cannot function. We are part of the engine, and it helps. I mean, yeah, I could sing an a cappella song; That wouldn’t look good. I don’t know what they want from me. I think they are just crazy. I don’t know. they are crazy “.
to me Ronnie“all” his fans had his back when it came to Bach runner. “I’m, like, ‘Brother, if you think I’m faking it, go ahead Youtube and watch any video. Send me a video that looks like I’m fake. “Nobody can,” he said. There is no falsification. We don’t bleed it. We need our rap beats. We need our celites. We could have, like, 25 people on stage, if that’s what makes it Sebastian Bach happy. I am sure no one will care. Six different keyboard players. Let me take two more buses on tour, which will cost $250,000, and pay their fare and hotel, just Sebastian Bach He is, like, “This is real.”
Radke He explained that his lead vocals are always one hundred percent live. “I dare anyone to go try and find a video of me lip-syncing at all,” he said. From 2005 until now, you won’t find it Refusal to lip sync. I’ll only cancel the show if my vote is gone or something. I will never do that. It’s not about money. This is why people are so upset that I canceled shows. I’m not going to lip sync. So I challenge anyone to try and find a video of my lip syncing. You can not. And some people call out to me and say, “You are.” And I’ll say, “No, that’s my voice.” And then it’s a huge compliment to me, because I’m proud of my ability to sing, and things like that, live. You may say. If you’ve been doing this for a long time and attended a lot of shows, you can tell the difference. People on the internet usually say that – nobody in the shows.”
back in 2019, Bach He weighed in on artists using pre-recorded tracks in their live performances, saying that it had “become very rare” to see bands “not mimic or make silly moves while a tape is playing.” Previous The grade is slippery said the singer sound consequences: “I don’t know how long I can tell you I don’t use tapes on stage, because I don’t, and never have. And I still don’t. I’m not going to tour. I feel like one of the last people. When I have bands , and they use the straps, and then I go out and don’t use the straps… Sometimes, I feel stupid, ’cause I’m like, what am I doing, when all these kids half my age can get on stage and do all my moves, but they don’t have to warm up for an hour Before the show, or weeks before the premiere?’ Sometimes I say, ‘Why bother, if the audience is so used to it this other way’?”
“I just took this cruise, called rock legends Cruz, and there were all the old teams – like Kansas And Edgar WinterHe continued, “These guys come to the stage and destroy you with their music. None of these bands on this trip used tapes. And KansasI was hanging out with that guy with the eyepatch [guitarist Rich Williams]and he said, “I tell people, ‘Come see this while it’s still there,’ because it’s become so rare that you come to see a good band that are actually a real band—don’t mimic or do silly moves while the tape is playing. It just gets rarer as the years go by.” “.
When asked why he thinks artists’ use of pre-recorded tracks seems to be more prevalent nowadays, Bach He said, “Because everyone films everything on their phone, and then posts everything. That’s why. No one wants to jump in too much and then send a bad note, then put it on the Internet, and people say, ‘He doesn’t sing it like a record. ‘” Well, nobody trips when they’re on the record. So, you can either freeze or sit in a chair – that’s how you put on a recording – and if you want to do that, it’s a pretty boring show. “
He went on to say, “Most artists say, ‘Singing is too hard. ‘ I’m not from that school. I’ve done four Broadway shows—I don’t shift the keys down; I can still hit all the notes. I might not hit them all quite like a record any night.” I may never be as good as I used to be… But I’m as good once as I ever was. [Laughs]”
Bach Previously defended Kiss against claims that the band used previously recorded tracks during their farewell tour. “I listened to Paul Stanley sings his ass straight” Sebastian He tweeted after witnessing KissThe concert is at the Honda Center in Anaheim, California. “I’ve seen a much more explicit use of backing tracks than I have Kiss… Kiss He added, “It’s not lip-syncing. There’s a lot of work involved in giving the greatest rock show you’ll ever see.”
In July 2020, Bach Accused hazy Frontline commander Chris Jericho using previously recorded audio tracks during live performances. Previous The grade is slippery The front man claimed at first Jericho It was “simulated to bar” in hazy Concerts in a social media post. In response, the wrestler-turned-rocker insisted he had “absolutely not copied anything” and challenged Bach to “single” with “no effects, no tuning, no bullshit,” saying “bass Great singer…but I’m better.”
In the months that followed, Bach I brought JerichoThe alleged lip-syncing on several occasions, most recently in January 2021 in an interview with Aquarian Weekly. Specifically asked about his feud with ChrisAnd Sebastian He said, “I have an open mind towards everyone. If you read Blabbermouth.com [sic] Some bands say, “We’re the future of rock ‘n’ roll and we’re the next thing after that The rolling stonesI think this is incredible! What did I miss? So, I checked out one video during which the singer mimed 100% on tape on stage at The Rockpile in Toronto. Weird, I said to myself, this isn’t next Rolling stonesSo, I watched another video of him opening up Nickelback In the arena, again, he’s doing a bar mimic. You can go see it yourself. Then someone said, “Here’s a clip of him singing live.” legit, brother. And he imitates a bar again. It’s plain madness. This is not my opinion, it is a fact. I’m not the one to start the fight. But don’t tell me what live vocals are, because I’ve never used tape. I don’t even know how to do that.”
