Two of rock’s most outspoken characters, Ted Nugent and Sebastian Bach, are currently engaged in a war of words. The latest exchange is over the definition of the word “weak.”

The whole thing started on Thursday (Aug. 28), when, speaking to, Nugent said the following about the former Skid Row singer. “Sebastian Bach is a great guy, I love the guy, incredibly gifted, a gentleman for the most part, but he’s weak. He’s weak. And he doesn’t understand the concept of the [body as a] Sacred Temple. He doesn’t understand accountability. He doesn’t understand – clearly – how his indulgences and his poisons ruin his life. And his relationships, and his marriage. And his musical capabilities. I love the guy and if he’s watching this, I love you, but when you’re the drunk Sebastian Bach, you’re nowhere near the Sebastian Bach that you are when you’re clean and sober. Case closed.”

On Saturday, in response, Bach tweeted, “Being a racist is f—ing weak.” This would seem to be a reference to the firestorm Nugent began earlier this year by referring to President Obama as a “subhuman mongrel,” a comment for which he later apologized.

Bach and Nugent appeared together on the 2006 VH1 reality show, ‘Supergroup.’ One episode focused heavily on whether or not Bach was drinking too much. Nugent, for his part, has long denied he is a racist, citing the many African American musicians who have influenced him throughout his career.
