During a recent conversation with Rockin’ Metal Revival, Skid Row’s David ”Snake” Sabo opened up about ex-singer ZP Theart.
“We just came back to start playing shows again in February. And before that, we had noticed… Prior to the Christmas holidays, we had noticed that the band and ZP were starting to diverge and go in different directions. And we were hoping that by doing this record and moving forward and going to play live shows that maybe those two paths would converge.
”And unfortunately, they just grew more distant from one another. So we had a really difficult decision to make because we knew that it couldn’t go on like this, and thus we knew that we wouldn’t be making the best record possible if we didn’t make the change. So in late February, with less than a month to go before the residency with the Scorpions and a whole record to record vocals on, we decided to part ways.
“On paper, it sounds like the most ridiculous thing in the world to do at that particular point. And I think that we were just throwing caution to the wind and saying, ‘You know what? Every path is always difficult in order to reach where you wanna go; it’s never easy. So we’ll just figure it out.'”
