sebastian_bach-400 Former Skid Row frontman Sebastian Bach has accused his bandmates of being “allergic to cash”. Additionally, he’s branded their refusal to discuss a reunion as an insult to their loyal fans.

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.”

    I remember Skid Row coming to Syracuse for the first time at a place called..”The Lost Horizon”. I was bouncing there and They brought girlfriends, friends etc with them. A total of 22 people or close to that number where there to see this band. I laughed. Then they opened for Bon Jovi on a Friday night at The Carrier Dome & the next night played once again @ The Lost Horizon. It was total MAYHEM…had to get the Syracuse Police & Fire Depts to control the outside while we did our best to control the inside. The Lost Horizon hosted every major band from the 80’s…GnR, Bon Jovi, Motörhead, Slayer, Anthrax name the band they played there. I never witnessed anything like when Skid Row came back for their 2nd show. Amazing. Would love to see them back together again…….Joe in The Cuse

      I remember that! My first time ever to the Lost Horizon. Snuck out with friends at 15 years old to go see it. Was a show I’ll never forget.

    I appreciate people standing firm on what they believe, that being said Skid Row couldnt sell out a 300 capacity bar, yikes. Those guys must reallly hate eachother. I think one of the problems is outside of Rachel, most people dont know the other guys, its just not marketable. Just my worthless opinion.

      Pete, I totally agree. There has to be a lot of bad blood. Skid Row isn’t Skid Row with Sebastian (and I say this a someone who never really cared for them other than their 4 hits). Not marketable is an understatement. How do these guys even buy food?

    I guess not everyone’s motivated by cash…. Theirs always three sides to the story.

    Skid Row are idiots. Doc would get them on a Kiss-Leppard tour with Bach and get the ball going on exposure. Sure Gene & Paul would put their foot down on the % but it would be more than a Bach or Skid Row tour in clubs, casinos, 17 act shows in a field, etc..
