Australia — Just in time for his tour down under singer Sebastian Bach is doing a slew of press.
In a recent interview with Music Injection Bach talks about today’s world news, Facebook headlines and how it affects him.
In a nutshell the ex-Skid Row frontman is angry, mad and furious.
All the words he uses to describe his feelings.
“Well since Donald Trump became president Facebook became not fun for me. Every headline sucks, everything sucks and I get to the point where I can’t take it!” says Bach.
Bach who turns 50 on his next birthday, touches on the world’s current news climate in general. No pun intended, as he even says:“Climate change makes me angry.”
Bach has been criss-crossing the globe singing songs and playing rock star since he was a teen. With the vast majority of those early and most successful years being with his former group Skid Row.
The New Jersey based multi-platinum rockers gave Bach his walking papers in 1996 and he’s been rocking solo ever since.
One thing appears to be clear, Bach is still as angry as the night he chucked a glass bottle (video below) into an innocent teenage fan’s face back in 1989. But this time it seems he’s furious over Facebook.

Which is a great attitude to have. I really do like that what I have read about you today, all your quotes and thoughts are positive. Is it hard to maintain positivity in a world that is filled with hate, terrorism, bigotry, racism, the list could go on and on and on?
Well, the Internet, as when we invented the internet, we are not sure how we’re going to be affected by that technology until we actually live with it. in the last year or so I have discovered that one of the greatest feelings that I can feel is that I can wake up and turn my phone off! I didn’t do that since these phones are being invented. It is almost like the same feeling that you get when you go to the record store and you are digging for albums. Turning your phone off and not refreshing the latest shittiest news headline or commenting or say this about this person. Turning it off is a glorious feeling! I think that celebrities are off the Internet now like Axel Rose, the biggest selling musician has no social media whatsoever, nothing! The Internet is a very negative, it is pretty much all negative there is very little positive stuff on there. You ask is it hard to maintain positivity and the answer is yes definitely!
I have been staying off Facebook a little bit and just using the messenger because people being negative all the time gets annoying.
Well since Donald Trump became president Facebook became not fun for me. Every headline sucks, everything sucks and I get to the point where I can’t take it!
Our Satire comedy groups make a whole lot of fun of Donald Trump but the sad reality is that it is true.
All of that news constantly day after day, week after week, it gets me down and it gets me in a bad mood and I don’t know about everybody else but when I read about nuclear war I find it hard to get on with my day. I thought we got rid of that nuclear war conversation in the 70’s! It gets very sad and angry at the same time. Climate change makes me angry, it makes me mad that people denied that when the world is fucked it makes me furious!!!!
