During Sebastian Bach’s performance on October 31st on this year’s ”Kiss Kruise”, the singer took a lighthearted jab at his former Skid Row band members.
Bach made a thinly veiled reference to the group’s new singer Erik Grönwall before launching into the Skid Row classic song “18 And Life” during the “All Hands On Deck Super Jam”.
Bach told the audience:
“This is the song that started it all for me, like two years ago, on Swedish ”American Idol”.
This is a song… I want you to sing along the words. This is called ”18 And Life”.”
In a recent interview with The Rock N’ Roll & Coffee Show, SKID ROW vocalist Erik Grönwall talked about being accepted by the fans.
“There’s so many different types of fans. I’ve realized that… ‘Cause when we did the show in California, [some] people came up to me after the show, and they were, like, ‘Sebastian [Bach], you’ve still got it.’ [Laughs] Yeah, that happened. Then you have the fans who still think that Sebastian is in the band, and then you have the fans who know the whole story.”
“I understand the fan perspective of wanting the original lineup — I understand that — because I’m a Bon Scott guy myself.”
“But I think that people are really excited about this new album, and I feel like even the people who want the original lineup are actually starting to approve.”
“When I joined this band, I realized that it’s such a privilege to have people so interested in the band, talking about the band, discussing everything. A lot of bands would kill for that, and that’s a privilege. You have all these people talking about SKID ROW and they like that singer or they like that song or they like that era, and that’s just incredible, having people so excited about it or hating it. [Laughs]”
