Sebastian Bach

Eddie Trunk’s “Friday Night Rocks” radio show on New York’s Q104.3 FM: Sebastian Bach on why a reunion of Skid Row’s classic lineup hasn’t happened yet: “There’s one dude out of five that doesn’t wanna do it; it’s so simple. That’s what’s happening.”
 
“I will always be the singer of Skid Row, no matter what. There’s no other guy. It’s like… John Corabi (who was briefly in Mötley Crüe as Vince Neil’s replacement in the mid-90’s), I love ya — it’s great — but where’s Vince? I mean, that’s the way it is. Walk down the street with me and count how many times, ‘Youth Gone Wild! Skid Row!’ It’s like people shout out of the cars.”
 
“Dude, if a promoter comes to me with a legitimate business offer, it’s very easy for me to walk on the stage and stand behind a mic and sing my own songs that I’ve been doing for 25 years.”
 
“If one dude wants to make all the fans that put us where we are happy… I mean, we all talk about KISS all the time. KISS makes the fans the boss. I mean, I think it’s kind of crazy. It’s like you take your football and you go home and the game is over, ’cause it’s your football. It’s like, ‘Can I borrow your football? ‘Cause we’ve got a game going here.'”

Metal-Rules.com: The one thing which has been in the headlines lately is that one certain photo [of you and former SKID ROW singer Sebastian Bach]. You know what I’m talking about here?
 
Sabo: Right.
 
Metal-Rules.com: What’s the story behind that?
 
Sabo: I had flown into L.A. that day because Duff McKagan, whom I manage, was doing two shows at the Viper Room and… So I flew in and I went there and one of the guys, an assistant of ours told me, he goes, “Sebastian’s here,” and stuff like that. I’m like… I don’t mean… I mean, I hold no ill will or any bad blood or anything — everybody else can have that. I have no negativity in my life whatsoever. So at the end of the show, I was in the dressing room and it was very small at the Viper Room dressing room and I saw him standing across the stage and I… I mean, across the room, and he made a beeline over with his girlfriend, had his hand out, and I shook his hand, you know, “How you doing? How you doing?” Exchanged the pleasantries and stuff. It was all very cool and very cordial; no heavy talk, like, “Come on, dude, we got to put this band back together.” It was nothing like that, you know. It was like, “How’s your family doing?” “I’m sorry that you got divorced,” you know, and she was a lovely girl and asked me how the kids are, you know… showing pictures and everything like that, and he’s like… bunch of people shooting pictures and he’s goes, “Let’s take a picture together,” and sure enough, you know, it was, you know, that’s the one that ended up out there.
 
Metal-Rules.com: Yeah, that’s the way how gossips start…
 
Sabo: Yeah, that’s okay. I mean, other people keep talking, but it’s really, so… it’s far simpler than people are making it out to be, whereas you know we have a long history together. It was one of those things where I did not want to… I don’t know I didn’t want to sit there and be like an angry prick or anything like that. I mean, life goes on and you make the most of it and I keep all negativity away from me, so…
 
Metal-Rules.com: How did you like the comments he put out later on?
 
Sabo: What about in the future… you know what?! That’s him, you know, that’s him — you know I don’t know what to do… I… The way I look at it is, you know, I don’t know what tomorrow’s going to bring. I just… hopefully we’ll make it on the plane home, you know. I kind of look at life like that lately. It’s too short. I’d rather enjoy the moment. If something like that happens down the road, then it happens, then it’s supposed to be, and if it doesn’t, then it wasn’t supposed to be, you know?! That’s just the way… that’s life, you know. To me, it’s no… I’m not going to beat myself about the head over it and I’m not going to push for it or whatever. It’s like if little things present themselves in a way that.. that’s its conducive and everybody wants to do it, then that’s something to talk about, but right now it’s a non-issue.
 
Metal-Rules.com: He seems to be a kind of kind of guy who always says out loud what he thinks.
 
Sabo: Of course. I mean, that’s just, I guess, that’s just the way he’s always been, but, you know, going back to like us meeting again, something like that, I didn’t… again, because he was cool and he was sober and he wasn’t hyper and he was… he was nice, you know, it was a nice ten-minute… ten-, fifteen-minute conversation with him and it wasn’t any big deal, and I’m glad it wasn’t a big deal — I’m glad it was just as cordial as it was.
