Wherever Guns N’ Roses have played thus far in 2006, former Skid Row frontman Sebastian Bach has likely been there, either opening for GN’R or joining Axl Rose onstage for the duet ‘My Michelle.’

For Bach, it’s a return engagement: Skid Row opened for GN’R on their ‘Use Your Illusion’ tour in 1991. Though Bach is grateful for the opportunities, he admits he doesn’t know quite how it happened.

“To be totally honest with you, I don’t understand why Axl is so nice to me,” Bach tells AOL Music. “I don’t know why he just waves his magic wand and points it at me and says, ‘You’re opening for me all around the world.’ To me, it’s crazy.”

Bach, who will release a new album, ‘Angel Down,’ in 2007, isn’t arguing. “I’m going with it,” he says. “It’s always been that way for me. It’s going to make a good book someday. I see all these rock ‘n’ roll books and they’re all killer, but I laugh. I go, ‘Wait ’til you f***ing read my book! My book is going to make [the Motley Crue book] ‘The Dirt’ look clean,'” he says, laughing.
