MYRIAD OF REASONS … Dave ‘Snake’ Sabo on Sebastian Bach: “I’ve got no desire to go back with my ex-wife”



Dave ‘Snake’ Sabo on Sebastian Bach: “I’ve got no desire to go back with my ex-wife”


Blabbermouth — SKID ROW guitarist Dave “Snake” Sabo has once again shot down the possibility of a reunion with Sebastian Bach, saying that “it’s not going to happen.”

Skid_Row_2015_1Bach fronted SKID ROW until 1996, when he was fired. Instead of throwing in the towel, the remaining members took a hiatus and went on to play briefly in a band called OZONE MONDAY.

In 1999, SKID ROW reformed and, after a bit of shuffling over the years, featured a lineup consisting of original bassist Rachel Bolan and guitarists Sabo and Scotti Hill, alongside drummer Rob Hammersmith and singer Johnny Solinger.

SKID ROW fired Solinger over the phone in April 2015, a few hours before announcing ex-TNTvocalist Tony Harnell as his replacement. Eight months later, Harnell exited the band and was replaced by South African-born, British-based singer ZP Theart, who previously fronted DRAGONFORCETANK and I AM I.

During a brand new interview with Tigman of the Albany, New York radio station Q103Sabosaid that it was “frustrating” to be constantly asked about a reunion with Bach when it’s been “over 20 years already” since the singer was dismissed from SKID ROW.

“People get married and people get divorced,” he said. “Some people — very few — but some people end up going back with their ex-wives. I’ve got no desire to go back with my ex-wife. I’m very happy with my current relationship.

“Look, I understand it — I do,” he continued. “And from a fan perspective, I get it. For me personally, for a myriad of reasons that are private, this is where I wanna be… this is where we all wanna be right here, right now.

“I don’t do this for money; money was never the issue with us. And so, yeah, if it was for a moneygrab, whatever — someone else could do it. Not that I’m allergic to money, I’m really, really happy where I’m at. And it’s no disrespect to anybody — I wish everybody all the best. But for right now in my life, this works best for all of us.

“People are wanting what once was — I do understand it; of course I do. But it’s not going to happen. And we’ve been saying that for a pretty long time.”
