Bach not waiting any longer for Skid Row classic line-up reunion for 30th year anniversary of debut album
Former Skid Row lead vocalist Sebastian Bach was recently interviewed by Consequence of Sound. The singer spoke about the 30th year anniversary of the release of Skid Row‘s self-titled debut album and his upcoming tour where he’ll be playing that album in its entirety.
Bach had previously given an open invitation to his Skid Row classic line-up members — guitarist Dave “Snake” Sabo and Scotti Hill, bassist Rachel Bolan and drummer Rob Affuso to join him on his upcoming tour. Only Affuso has responded positively to Bach‘s invitation. Affuso left Skid Row around the same time as Bach back in 1996.
In terms of the lack of response from the three others, Bach advised Consequence of Sound as follows: “I haven’t heard back from them, would be my answer to you. I wish they could get along with my manager, Rick Sales, like everybody else does in the industry. What else can you do? I don’t know what else to do. I’m 51, and this is the 30th anniversary of the first record I ever put out in my life. Would I like to celebrate it with the other four people who put it out? Yes, I would. But I’m also not going to wait around any longer — because I don’t know how much longer I have, to be honest with you. I honestly don’t know that.”
With respect to his future plans, Bach advised: “Just new music. As I said, I’ve been working with John 5, but I’ve also been working with Orianthi — we’ve got two songs going. And Steve Stevens from Billy Idol’s band — he was on my last album, and he’s going to be on the next record. And my solo band has got material going. So, that’s going go to be my focus, but I’m also playing live all the time. And I’ve got a bunch of side projects, [like] Kings of Chaos — it’s me, Dee Snider from Twisted Sister, and Lou Gramm from Foreigner on vocals, and Gilby Clarke [formerly of Guns N’ Roses], and then Kenny Aronoff from John Cougar’s “Jack and Diane” on drums, and James Lomenzo [formerly of White Lion] on bass, Warren DeMartini from Ratt on guitar. It’s really a lot of fun — we’re playing as a supergroup for that. And then my 30th anniversary tour starts on August 29th, and right now, it ends in November.”
