SKID ROW’s RACHEL BOLAN On ‘Slave To The Grind’: ‘Our Female Audience Decreased By About 45 Percent.’

In an interview with Billboard Skid Row‘s bassist Rachel Bolan and vocalist Sebastian Bach talked about the creation process of the sophomore album “Slave to the Grind” and the repercussion. Read it here:

“Our female audience decreased by about 45 percent. It was mainly dudes, because the album was so much heavier too, so it alienated a lot of women.”

He also talked to The Aquarian in 2015:

“I think a lot of people expected us to become formulaic with the way we approached the first record and we had no interest in doing that,” he said. “And I’m so proud of all of us for being on the same page with that. I’m not saying that it would have been easy from the creative standpoint to sort of go along the lines of the first record, because it had some pretty big songs as far as radio goes, but we were in a different mindset. We had gone from barely leaving the state of New Jersey to seeing the world that very few people are privileged with.”
