SEBASTIAN BACH SAYS HIS FORMER SKID ROW BANDMATES ARE “ALLERGIC TO CASH”
Both parties are regularly asked about the chances of getting back together, but bassist Rachel Bolan recently attempted to end the speculation by calling it “a waste of time”
Now Bach has responded to his comment, telling Yahoo Music, “I go on my Twitter feed and I read things like it’s the 25th anniversary of the first Skid Row album and Skid Row doesn’t give a shit. I would love to do something to celebrate it. My former bandmates are like, ‘Nah, we’re playing a bowling alley. We’re happy.’”
The singer says there’s “a lot of unreleased material” in the band archives which he’s sure fans would love to hear.
“I guess my band is allergic to cash,” he continues. “They’re happy not being big. It’s such an insult to the millions of people who dig our albums. It’s like saying: ‘We were just joking back then. Happy anniversary!’”
Skid Row, fronted by Johnny Solinger for the past 14 years, released the first in their United World Rebellion EP series in 2013, and are currently working on the second instalment.
Meanwhile, Bach releases his new solo album, Give ‘Em Hell on April 22nd. He describes it as giving the fans “more of what they want and what they expect”, adding: “I don’t see how a fan could dig Slave To The Grind and not like the album I’ve just made.”
Touching on his notoriously frank media comments, the Bach says: “I can’t help it. I don’t censor what I say and I always end up in trouble, but I don’t fucking care.”
