One man is stopping Skid Row reunion – and it’s not Sebastian Bach
Sebastian Bach has backtracked on his previous vehement statements that he’d never return to Skid Row – and he’s revealed only one member of the hard rock outfit’s classic lineup disagrees with him.
But he hasn’t said whether it’s bassist Rachel Bolan, guitarist Dave ‘Snake’ Sabo, guitarist Scotti Hill or drummer Rob Affuso. All but the sticksman are currently in the band.
The singer was sacked by Skid Row in 1996, going on to develop a solo career while they hired replacement Johnny Solinger. In the past both parties had firmly asserted getting back together wasn’t on the cards.
But asked again via Twitter, Bach said: “Four out of five want to do it. Believe it or not, I am one of the four who would do it.”
Earlier this year he revealed they’d never actually been asked to reform until they were approached by organisers of the UK’s Sonisphere festival – which was later cancelled.
After admitting a tweet he’d written claiming he was “getting the band back together” was an April fool, the singer told Examiner.com: “A lot of the time people say, ‘How come you aren’t together?’ and I’ve never been offered a reunion until this year. They actually printed up a postet, ‘Kiss with special guests Skid Row,’ and that was actually a real thing. But those guys did not want to do it.”
He suggests the situation has now changed. But the most recent comment from Bolan appears to hint he could be the one standing against the move.
The bassist told SC Times: “When Johnny joined the band that really gave us a kick in the ass. It was a different guy there, and everything that came out was positive. After the first tour it seemed like this was the way it’s always been. I’ll hear an old song on the radio and it just sounds so bizarre to me because I’m so used to Johnny singing it.”
