CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Sebastian Bach, the fluffy haired former frontman of Skid Row, came on stage at Monday night's Camp Freddy concert and immediately called out Republican vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan for his love of rock and roll. Ryan said during his Republican National Convention speech last week that his "playlist starts with AC/DC and ends with Zeppelin."

Bach wasn't having it. "That means it stops at the letter L," Bach yelled. "I guess he doesn't like Motley Crue, I guess he doesn't like Minnie Riperton, he doesn't even have any Melissa Manchester on his [expletive] iPod."

Between songs Bach blasted Ryan again. "Do you like Led Zeppelin more than Paul Ryan?" he shouted to the mostly Democratic crowd.

Bach was the only one of the many rockers to delve into politics while performing with Camp Freddy, the jam band that played both conventions. The DNC show included performances by Franky Perez and Godsmack's Sully Erna and featured Dave Navarro, who missed the RNC show. Sugar Ray's Mark McGrath played both conventions.
