Sebastian Bach told Billboard.com in a recent interview that he was approached to write a memoir, which he predicted could "make the dirt look clean."
The Billboard.com writer, Gary Graff, took Sebastian's comment to mean that the singer's autobiography would top MÖTLEY CRÜE's "The Dirt: Confessions Of The World's Most Notorious Rock Band", something Bach now insists he never said or even implied.
In a new post on his Facebook page, Bach writes, "Why does the press always put words in my mouth? You would think I would know better by now.
"Someone asked me about my book and my answer was exactly this: 'I could make the dirt look clean if I wanted to.' Now every single thing I read about my book says, 'Sebastian says his book will surpass Mötley Crüe's 'The Dirt'. Only thing is... I never said that. I don't even know what kind of book it will be yet.
"My book has nothing to do with Mötley Crüe! I love the Crüe, but I have not decided if I want my book to be full-on burrito-fucking madness, or something different.
"I have never used the words 'Mötley Crüe' when talking about my book, until this very post.
"Thank you, I feel much better."
