Sebastian Bach wants his next solo album to be the “ultimate record” that you would expect from him
In terms of what he envisions his next solo album to sound and feel like, Bach advised: “Well, I’m actually going to try to make a career-defining album, like the ultimate record that you would expect from me. So if you like “Skid Row,” “Slave to the Grind,” “Subhuman Race,” “Angel Down,” “Kicking & Screaming,” if you like those, you’re going to like this one. I’m not going to do like a country record or a rap album, it’s going to be a rock ‘n’ roll album. And I’ve got to say I’m inspired by Judas Priest, who has always been one of my favorite bands. But their album “Firepower” is such a hit with the fans, that would be a great scenario for me. If I could come up with a record that the fans would like the way that Judas Priest did, that’s my objective.”
With the release of Skid Row‘s debut self-titled album approaching its 30th year anniversary, Bach was asked how he feels about the milestone. Bach replied: “Well, you know, you only get one 30th anniversary, so it is quite amazing. I don’t have contact with those guys, so that’s kind of a drag, but I’m not going to ignore that 30th anniversary. I plan on commemorating it if I can in some way, possibly with a live show, we’re thinking about that. I think Atlantic is thinking of re-releasing the first album, but I don’t know the details on that. But we’ll find out soon.”
