Original Skid Row lead vocalist Sebastian Bach has expressed some choice words for his former band mates.
In recent news, Skid Row bassist Rachel Bolan commented during an interview that working with original lead vocalist Sebastian Bach would be a “waste of time.” Now Bach is responding to these comments, while expressing frustration that the group refused to reunite in light of the recent 25th Anniversary of their debut self-titled studio album.
“I go on my Twitter feed and I read things like [January 24] was the 25th anniversary of the release date of the first Skid Row album, and Skid Row doesn’t give a fuck,” Bach told Yahoo! Music. “I would love to do something to celebrate it, and my former bandmates are like, ‘Nah, we’re playing a bowling alley. We’re happy. We don’t care.'”
Bach continued to say that there is plenty of classic Skid Row material awaiting to be released. “There’s a lot of unreleased material sitting around collecting dust. The fans would love [to see it being released], but I guess my band is allergic to cash. They’re happy not being big. It’s such an insult to the millions of people who dug our albums. It’s like saying, ‘We were just joking [back then]. Happy anniversary!'”
In June 2012, Sebastian Bach posted a letter on his Facebook page addressing the possibility of an original Skid Row reunion, saying “For the fans, I would be willing to put my ego aside and do something that would be special for the people who put us where we are today.
“I do not personally want it myself. But it’s not always about ‘what I want.’ If the fans really want to see us together, I would do it for the fans. Sometimes you can do things for people other than yourself.”
Sebastian Bach is currently preparing to release his forthcoming solo album ‘Give ‘Em Hell‘ this April via Frontiers Records.
