Skid Row singer Sebastian Bach and Judas Priest singer Rob Halford go way back. Far enough that Bach that walked out of a Zoom interview on the Sex, Drugs, & Rock n' Roll Show after a homophobic joke from comedian Big Jay Oakerson.

“His exercise is probably something gay he doesn’t wanna tell ya,” Oakerson said to a horrified Bach. “You gotta gargle jizz, but I dunno how to tell you that, Sebastian.”

“Dude, could you not wreck this interview? Seriously, Rob Halford is a friend of mine so spare the comments," Bach groaned. "Maybe you should skip those kinds of comments.”

While the show hosts attempted to salvage the interview, Bach simply clicked out of it. Watch the moment below.

When Halford was a guest on the same show, they asked him about the situation with Bach. The Judas Priest singer responded with a fantastic story about his relationship with the Skid Row howler.

"Let me say three things: I did a Zoom with Sebastian the other day and it was typical Sebastian, he couldn't get the Zoom to work and he had that thing where you put your face right up against the camera and you're looking up his nostril, and he's screaming at his wife and he's screaming at his kids, and it's complete and utter pandemonium, and we're trying to make it connect, and it did connect. We had a great conversation. He's a terrific guy, he's so much fun,” Halford chuckled. "The second thing is, I don't gargle, I swallow. And the third thing is, I've always wanted to be roasted at a comic roast, so if you guys, at some point, after this pandemic is over, if you can put me in that roast chair, I would love that." Watch it below.

Here's to Bach for being a good friend, and to Halford for being a good sport. Cheers!
