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.”

    Skid Row was allergic to Sebastian Bach’s massive ego, and thus are a happier band without him.

      Roland – “thus are a happier band without him”

      If you’re basing that on the fact that one member, Bolan, has expressed the fact that playing with Bach would be a waste of time, they’re not a happier BAND, just one guy with a grudge holding his bandmates back. HUGE difference. Bach and Snake have talked and were even pictured together a couple years back, and I’m betting Snake and Hill would be down to play with Bach for a few shows to celebrate the 25th.

    Sebastian Bach is releasing his 3rd solo album now. The first two were pretty good, I like them. There was also Abachalypse Now which is a live2 cd/dvd.
    The point is he’s working and making music. The original Skid Row have done one album which I admit I haven’t heard. They came through my city a couple years ago and played a very small club.
    They also have to get the original drummer Rob A. back in the band if they’re going to do a full reunion.
    But Sebastian is a huge part of Skid Row as the front man.

    I’ve always had the impression that the current Skid Row lineup is content being employed as rock musicians and not so much as rock stars, the latter obviously bringing more “cash.” Many bands of yesteryear are in the former category. They had their rock star moments and today just enjoy playing music, providing for their families….like the rest of us. Do I think Skid’s with Sebastian in it would generate a better buzz for them (and cash), yes. And I would go see them and at the bigger venue they would be at.

    the original drummer Rob would do a reunion if Sebastian was involved.
