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.”

    We are talking/arguing about Skid Row/Sebastian Bach…really? Sounds like they are being made out to be something monumental. They were/ and will be but a “minor blip” in the history of hard rock. I guess it ‘s all subjective in what you like, but come on…Skid Row? I know Eddie put them in his book. But you have to remmeber it’s “his essential”. I like Ed, but he is a fan boy and gets enamoured with some of these guys/guests that he is friends with. Sorry but no way are these guys essential. B level at best.

    Like it was mentioned earlier, if Bach was/is a great as he perceives himself to be in his mind, he would have been working more. Broadway great, thats all fine. You can scream and hit all the high notes you want , thats not the only thing that makes you great singer. Just like Malmsteen, you can play fast/appregios and burn the neck up and thats nice, but there is more to it. You can be talented as much as you want, but if you cant get along personality wise, forget. At this sage of the game ,people dont want to deal with it. Check your ego.

    People have to realize, for the most part the glory days of hard rock/metal are done. I hate to say it, but is has been for quite awhile. I will enjoy the music like i always have but , to think it’s going to rise out of the grave and dominate like it did you are wrong. So for Bach to think he is going to milk a supposed cash cow like Skid Row, he is delusional. Maybe it has a had a little resurgance, but nothing dominating. It seems to have a stronger following in Europe and other countries. If you want to make cash, maybe take it overseas and milk it like JLT. That will pay the bills.

      I personally think that Sebastian’s singing talents are much more than just screaming and hitting high notes, but to each their own.

      Also, I was never arguing about the legitimacy of Skid Row with or without Bach, I just felt that his singing talent was being somewhat minimized, that’s all.
