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,” he responded.
When interviewer 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.”
When asked “what is wrong” with the SKID ROW guys that they won’t agree to reunite with him, Bach responded: “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.”
Earlier this year, Scott Penfold of Loaded Radio asked SKID ROW guitarist Dave “Snake” Sabo how he felt about people petitioning for a reunion with Bach.
He said: “Well, it’s been 23 years [since SKID ROW reformed], so to say that I’m over it would be an understatement. We attempted [a reunion] slightly [back in 2016]. We dipped our toes in the water and realized that it didn’t feel so good. It’s just one of those things where we still could not see eye to eye; we couldn’t even get past the point of simple texting.
“I am really, really happy where we are. I’m very proud of our past, and all due credit to everybody who’s been involved in every aspect of our career, whoever that may be, ’cause it all led to where we are now.
He continued: “I’ve been asked a thousand times: ‘What about the payday [of a reunion with Sebastian]?’ And that’s all well and good, but if that’s why I did this — if that’s why we did this; I can speak for everybody — we probably wouldn’t be doing it. I wanna be happy, and I am very, very happy. And so are the guys; everybody’s really happy.
