Sebastian Bach calls the rockers anti-biden
Having a public figure often gives artists a platform to share their views, but that doesn’t mean it won’t happen unopposed. So when a musician, Aaron Lewis of Staind, used the concert stage to lead a “Fuck Joe Biden” chant at the president’s birthplace and then blamed the Democrats for “every fucking scar on this country.” , a rebuttal recently came from Sebastian Bach, who served as an F-bomb response right away.
“I just think for any ignorant musician who wants to blackmail his crowd, ‘Fuck Joe Biden’, okay, whoever wants to do that, I can say, ‘Fuck you and your band, and fuck the guy who came before Joe Biden, ‘ [who] I don’t need to talk about it anymore, â€Bach told Ultimate Classic Rock without directly mentioning Lewis or former President Trump.
He then defended the current president by saying: “Joe Biden is an old man who has nothing but good intentions for the country, and there is nothing not to like about him. He is doing his best for us. bring it back to normal, instead of the shitty show that took rock ‘n’ roll away from us in 2020, and our kids’ school, and everything we know about America. Joe Biden made the America even better, and it is constantly under attack for no reason. “
While Bach expressed his desire to see new leadership in the United States in the last election, he told the UCR that he was not necessarily interested in stoking the political flames. “As soon as Joe Biden was elected president, I never mentioned the other guy again,” he explained. â€œIf you look at my Twitter, I flipped the switch. I’m like ‘I’m done with this shit.’ Because that’s not who I am. I don’t want to make political headlines with my face next to them all the time. But when you knock [science deniers] with hardcore stuff like “two plus two equals four” these are fighting words for some people. If you hit ’em with shit like math, be careful, you’re going over the edge, man. “
On the contrary, Bach would prefer to use his social media to promote the need for the vaccine as the country continues to fight COVID-19 and the Delta variant. “I was stuck in my house [this summer after contracting COVID], and I had to get the hell out of my house, I was like, ‘What can I do to get out of my house?’ I was like, ‘Holy shit, I have half a million people following me here on Twitter, and that’s quite a number of people,’ “the singer said.
Bach has since been able to get back on the road, but remains vigilant in complying with COVID security protocols. â€œI actually listen to what the doctors say,â€ he explains. â€œI check the news every morning, and lately the news has been that COVID cases seem to be going down, and we might actually be taking a step forward in the fight to get back to normal. And if it continues like this, we are on tour at a great time. “
Bach is currently on the road with Kaleido’s backing on what remains of a long fall tour that ends Dec. 17 in San Diego. Check the tour stops and ticketing information here.
