Sebastian Bach and Skid Row reunion requests by fans are always a hot topic.
During an appearance on a recent episode of the “I Am All In With Scott Patterson” podcast, former SKID ROW singer Sebastian Bach was asked if there has been any talk of a reunion of the band’s classic lineup.
“There was texting and a little talking. But there needs to be more talking.”
When interviewer Scott Patterson pointed out that some of the other 1980s rock bands have been able to play stadiums in recent years, Bach concurred, saying:
“Absolutely. POISON and Joan Jett, MÖTLEY CRÜE, DEF LEPPARD… Yeah.”
Asked “what is wrong” with the SKID ROW guys that they won’t agree to reunite with Bach, Sebastian said:
“Well, I have a manager named Rick Sales, and he protects my interests. So they’ve gotta deal with the business side of things, and they would rather maybe not deal with that, as far as I can tell — just not deal with that. But there’s always a number. I mean, we’re all still alive.”
Sebastian Bach spoke about his plans for the next solo album. When asked, Bach said (via Blabbermouth)
“I have a new record label and we’re putting out a new record very soon. I’m not supposed to talk about that, but I’m always working on new songs and new music.”
When asked why it’s taking such a long time, Bach responded:
“Basically, I kind of had to take this year off a little bit, because I — I’m not supposed to say this stuff — I’ve been working on music since two SKID ROW singers ago. [Laughs] I’ve been working on music since before the pandemic, so I have amassed a lot of music. And the thing about putting out music in 2022 is that you have to figure out a way to cut through the clutter because everybody and their cousin puts out an album or has a YouTube page.
“A long time ago, there used to be record companies that you had to be good to get signed. Not just anybody could put out records; it was a privilege, and you had to work for it. But with the advent of Pro Tools and technology, you can be a wrestler and then just wake up the next day and go, ‘I’m gonna be a rocker.’ … And then you just walk in there and waffle out some half-a*s take and then fix it up on a laptop. So with there being no gatekeepers, you’ve got to have a plan. And if noticed, albums that are big now, have such a long setup time. An artist will put out three or four songs, or three or four videos even before the album comes out. So it’s this big plan. And there’s also the vinyl backlog. You have to get in line to produce vinyl right now because vinyl is so hot — everybody collects it — that you have to have six months of lead time even to get into the vinyl pressing plants.
