Ronnie Radke & Sebastian Bach

Falling In Reverse Frontman Ronnie Radke & Sebastian Bach Go To War Over Bands Using Backing Tracks, Members Of All That Remains, Stray From The Path, Etc. Weigh In


The decision for Falling In Reverse to cancel their appearance at this past September’s ‘WIIL ROCK Fest‘ over several missing laptops has set the stage for an ongoing public feud among different generations or rock musicians.

The Ronnie Radke-led Falling In Reverse backed out of their their set at that festival after being unable to locate the laptops they use for backing tracks at their concerts. In a video statement apologizing for the cancellation issued at the time, Radke in-part stated, “…As a band in 2022, you need your laptops. It’s like driving a car without an engine.”

This led to SiriusXM host to discuss the matter on social media, offering:

“This is astonishing .. First I heard about this I thought it was a joke to wind me up. How much longer are fans, promoters , media, just going to accept the epidemic of live rock shows… not really being live? Paying your hard earned money to see a band play ‘live’ that’s not truly live?! And there are countless bands in 2022 that hone their craft and play live! Tons! New and old !! Including the one that subbed for them in their slot, Jackyl . No laptop needed there! This is just unreal. But at least I give them credit for being honest. Wow. I am closer than ever to launching my own band. And I can’t sing or play a note .. simply amazing.”

In your face. Can’t wait to meet you in person. Name the time and the place and I will introduce you to rock and roll in person man”.”
