In an interview with Metal Hammer, Sebastian Bach discussed his relationship with SKID ROW members.
“The most ironic thing in the world is when Rachel [Bolan, bass] says, ‘I’ll never get the band together as long as there’s bread on my table,’ but the bread on his table came from us five being together… It hurts that we’re not together. It hurts that I can’t be involved in an anniversary celebration. It hurts that we have not been in a room together since 1996.
It’s kind of a tragedy for me, but music has a life of its own, and this album isn’t my album — it’s the whole world’s album. ‘I Remember You’ was the No. 1 prom song in the United States in 1990 [according to] USA Today. That’s a lot of slow-dancing, and a lot of memories, and a lot of whispered romance in people’s ears to that song. It’s not mine anymore…
Carrie Underwood, a huge country star, she does ‘I Remember You’. She does an incredible version. Zoe Kravitz, Lenny Kravitz‘s daughter… Adam Levine, who goes on the Internet saying, ‘Rock is dead,’ explain to me why on the last season of ‘The Voice’, the very last challenge you gave your team was ‘I Remember You’, for f*ck’s sake.
[Laughs] This music has transcended heavy metal/hard rock. It’s way bigger than that. Norah Jones was asked in Rolling Stone, ‘What are your favorite songs of all time? ‘I Remember You’ was in there, and she goes into detail saying that whenever she hears that, she gets hit with this wave of nostalgia for her youth and her childhood. This isn’t the dude in W.A.S.P.; this is Norah Jones. This music has transcended what we ever could have envisioned for it, and we’re just so excited for you all to download this file and celebrate with us. [Laughs]”
