Video of Sebastian Bach plowing Eddie Trunk to the ground with birthday cake at Tulsa IDL Ballroom
The iconic and influential Eddie Trunk was celebrating his birthday with the Eddie Trunk’s Birthday Day Bash at a sold out IDL Ballroom show in Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA on July 24, 2021. The “Farewell to IDL Ballroom” show featured many well known performers including singers Stephen Pearcy (Ratt), Phil Lewis (L.A. Guns) and Sebastian Bach (ex-Skid Row) and an all-star backing band consisting of guitarist Brent Woods (Sebastian Bach, WildSide, ex-Vince Neil), bassist Robbie Crane (Black Star Riders, ex-Ratt) and drummer Glen Sobel (Alice Cooper).
Bach and company had a little surprise for Trunk as after showing a massive birthday cake and having the crowd sing “Happy Birthday” to the latter, the ex-Skid Row singer ended up plowing the cake into Trunk pushing him into the ground. Trunk was a good sport about it and addressed the crowd afterwards while joking that he might need to see a chiropractor.
In an interview with Ruben Mosqueda for Sleaze Roxx back in May 2016, Trunk was asked about a negative concert review in Atlanta involving his friend Sebastian Bach to which he indicated:
“I heard a little bit about that. Not that much to tell you the truth. Baz is a very emotional guy; I’m not surprised that he got caught up in that. These guys are human. So tune that all out and let it roll off their back and others react and shoot back! I do that myself at times. I go through my Twitter feed and 99.9% of them are good people who say constructive and positive things or at the very least in a nice way. Listen, it just takes one person to say something really absurd that rubs you the wrong way and you respond. That’s what they are looking for. We’ve all done it. We’ve all been there. This isn’t the first time, nor will it be the last time that Sebastian will go down that road.
There’s a side of me that really likes it when these guys fire back. I think you just have to be careful that you don’t do it so much. That is what those people are looking for — acknowledgement. I’ve never had trouble with that. I have really thick skin. You have to if you’re going to be in this industry at all. What gets me is when someone pops off about something that has no merit whatsoever. I’ll give you an example. Recently, someone posted that the reason ‘That Metal Show’ wasn’t on the air was because ‘Eddie wants too much money! Eddie’s demands are too high!’ I just laughed at that! Where does someone even come up with something like that?! It has nothing to do with me [laughs]! There’s a crew of 40 people that the show employs. It’s about the budget, the cost of producing the show — it’s not about me.
In the case of Sebastian for the most part, he really does sing fairly well. I don’t know maybe the guy had a bad night. Again, I don’t have a problem firing back. Just don’t do it all the time otherwise people will bait you.”
