Sebastian Bach Blasts Skid Row For Not Reuniting To Celebrate Debut

Sebastian Bach, estranged from Skid Row since 1999, is apparently unhappy that a reunion with his old band isn’t in the works to recognize the 25th anniversary of their self-titled 1989 debut album.

“I would love to do something to celebrate it,” Bach tells Yahoo Music, “and my former bandmates are like, ‘Nah, we’re playing a bowling alley. We’re happy. We don’t care.'”

Both camps have long since moved on, with Johnny Solinger filling Bach’s old frontman spot for Skid Row for the last 15 years. They’ve consistently refused to appear with Bach on stage, or even to reissue expanded versions of their recordings together. Co-founding bassist Rachel Bolan, talking to Spotlight Report just this month, called reunion questions “a waste of time.”

Meanwhile, Bach is preparing his third solo project, ‘Give ‘Em Hell.’ Due on April 22, the project features Duff McKagan (Guns N’ Roses, Velvet Revolver) Steve Stevens (Billy Idol, The Cult) and John 5 (Rob Zombie, Marilyn Manson). “I don’t see how a fan could dig (Skid Row’s 1991 album) ‘Slave to the Grind,’ he says, “and not like the album I’ve just made.”

Still, Bach wonders about his ex-bandmates’ motives in not revisiting a turn-of-the-’90s period that saw Skid Row sell some seven million albums in the U.S. alone. “There’s a lot of unreleased material sitting around collecting dust,” Bach says. “The fans would love it, but I guess my band is allergic to cash. They’re happy not being big. It’s such an insult to the millions of people who dug our albums. It’s like saying, ‘We were just joking [back then]. Happy anniversary!'”
