Sebastian Bach has shot down claims by several fans that he didn’t contribute to the songwriting on SKID ROW‘s debut album.
Bach weighed in on a Twitter discussion between SKID ROW fans in response to the announcement that the band’s current lineup will perform its second album, Slave To The Grind, in its entirety at a California concert next month. When one fan wrote that Sebastian “made SKID ROW the band they were,” another fan chimed in: “It’s hard to say a guy made a band who they were when he didn’t write anything on their biggest selling album. You get another good vocalist and you probably have the same result.”
Sebastian then responded: “Hey stupid you do realize that the songwriting credits are on the album right? Can you read?” When the same user wrote: “Fans need to move past ERAs,” Bach responded: “Fans have moved past ERAS they started back in 1996 jackass. You can either listen to #AngelDown #KickingandScreaming and #GiveEmHell,” referencing his last three solo albums, “or you can listen to Rise Of The Damnation Army United World Rebellion Chapter 2,” which was the latest post-Bach EP released by SKID ROW. “The choice of songwriters is up to you.”
Same user went on to say: “[Bach] wrote NONE of the songs on their biggest selling album which is the comment he is responding to,. I have been corrected on Slave To The Grind, I guess he can legitimately sing those 3 songs live,” to which Bach responded: “READ THE CREDITS YOU F****** IDIOT I wrote the song ‘Makin A Mess’ and every single high note on the first SKID ROW Record when I was 19 years old. You think anybody wrote the screams in ’18 And Life’ other than me? Why don’t you go listen to the guy before me sing it on YouTube and go shove that video up your a—s”.
“Hey you dumb f*ck I co-wrote five songs on Slave To The Grind if you could learn to read you would know this,” Sebastian continued. “I co-wrote five songs on Subhuman Race so shove that up your a—s too. Go listen to my solo records & the records they make without me and have a gr8 time.”
He added: “Read the credits if you want fact. The fact is u r a lifetime loser and you always will be. You have no clue what you’re talking about & can’t read liner notes. The albums they wrote without me are the ones that I do not sing on. My solo albums were written without them. Enjoy”.
