During a conversation with Sleaze Roxx, Skid Row’s Rachel Bolan talked about the band’s financial situation, commenting on the rumors that the ”band is broke”.
Here’s what the bassist said:
“People have this misconception that everyone in the band is broke, and we’re not. We had some massive songs, which I guess they forgot about, and we sold nearly twenty-three million records.
”So we’re not broke by any means. I heard some woman say, ‘Oh, they live in tents, and I’m like ‘Okay I’ve got a couple of tents, one in Jersey and one down in Atlantic City, and they’re nice tents, y’know?’
”We never had to go back to day jobs, the albums keep selling, and we make good money on the road. That’s another misconception that we play for peanuts; it’s a lot of peanuts. Don’t slip on the f*cking shells!”
