BIG MOUTH BLEW IT
Sebastian Bach admits Skid Row reunion talks have halted, apologizes; “I’m sorry!
LOS ANGELES, California — Just when it sounded like there might be that Skid Row reunion that the fans have been screaming about for years…it now seems as if though it’s on hold again.
This coming directly from the horses mouth.
Sebastian Bach (the horse) who quite possibly is the guy who wants the reunion more than any of the other original members, now says the ‘reunion talks’ have halted and he apologizes for it.
Metal Sludge has a few sources close to the situation and word on the street is that Bach’s recent “There’s 5 guys in Skid Row, everyone else is a fu??ing hack” comment was alleged to be the latest deal breaker.
Bach has never been one to mince words and clearly lacks the ability to use much of a filter when he speaks.
Last month’s outburst on stage at a New York area show just might have been the latetst straw that broke the camel’s back (again).
The Skid Row band have been through their fair share of singers in the last calendar year. And many in the industry assumed that this revolving door of frontmen was going to lead to Bach sliding back in for the much anticipated reunion.
A source claims that Bach’s comment that he belted out when he invited original drummer Ron Affusso on stage last month was alleged to be the latest deal breaker for such a reunion.
Metal Sludge reported on this incident in our Sebastian Bach article titled DIARRHEA MOUTH back on November 27th 2016.
Now Bach has recently told Vanyaland the following about the rumoured reunion: “All I can say is in recent days, when I said before that the managers [of Bach and Skid Row] “are talking,” I have to say now that the managers “were talking” [laughs]. I’m sorry! I’m sorry! Wah, wah, wah, wah, wah. It’s kind of actually… I don’t know really why, but it’s taken a turn in the other direction unfortunately.”
Sounds like Bach knows he screwed up and is quoted as saying; “I’m sorry! I’m sorry!”
Clearly motor mouth has motored himself into apologizing again, but we’re not sure for what. And we’re guessing Bach himself knows he blew it, that or he’s gonna play dumb.
Within 24 hours of his “everyone else is a fu??ing hack” tirade on stage, some fan filmed video hit youtube.
And just as fast, Get Off My Bach Productions, Inc. filed a copyright claim to the clips and they were removed.
One can only guess who GOMBPI is. (screen caps of the banned videos are seen below)
A portion of Bach’s interview on Vanyaland is pasted below.
I’ve interviewed people that I’m a huge fan of, and sometimes — and it’s extremely rare — they pull an attitude or act like a dick, I mean, maybe they are having a bad day, but it taints my opinion of them a little bit. You talk in the book about how bummed you were that Paul Stanley didn’t stick around when he came to see Jekyll & Hyde and in fact left mid-performance. Did that do anything to dim your love of Kiss?
SEBASTIAN BACH: No… I won’t let anyone take my love of Kiss away from me, not even — anybody — at all [laughs]. I flipped a switch in my head when I was a little kid… I love that, it’s my favorite kind of thing, I collect it. I was just sad because I’m the biggest fan and I just wanted to tell him how much I respected him and looked up to him and all that. But I really think this book, at the end of the day, one of the things about it, it’s like a love letter to Kiss. I was really inspired when I saw the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Tom Morello’s speech where he inducted Kiss and the way that speech hit me, I was like, electrified and in tears like when I was a kid because he really captured the excitement of that feeling. I said, “Oh my God… I have got to fucking write down and put into words my side of that,” because I was a freak [laughs]. And I know I did, because every time I read that, it’s always emotional and very hard for me to read — there’s a bunch of parts of the book that are like that — that’s how I knew I was done the book.
SEBASTIAN BACH: Well, Ted can say whatever he wants in life; he has no filter on what he says. He’s not the only one like that — I could say what I want to say. The only blow-back I’ve gotten is from Eddie Trunk [laughs].
This book’s release has been really high profile, and of course it’s got people talking about the topic of a Skid Row reunion. My question about that, which I haven’t seen asked, is, obviously there is some resentment or anger from certain members preventing it from happening. Would it matter to you if the reunion did happen, but it wasn’t based out of burying the hatchet, but because various managers were able to work it out? I mean, the fans win either way, but personally, would you rather you be on great terms rather than five separate dressing rooms?
SEBASTIAN BACH: I can’t answer that. All I can say is in recent days, when I said before that the managers [of Bach and Skid Row] “are talking,” I have to say now that the managers “were talking” [laughs]. I’m sorry! I’m sorry! Wah, wah, wah, wah, wah. It’s kind of actually… I don’t know really why, but it’s taken a turn in the other direction unfortunately. You can bust the bad news to everybody. I’m really so busy, that it’s beyond comprehension. I would love to do that, but if it doesn’t happen, I’ve got a lot of other things on my plate to tackle. So whatever happens, happens, but it’s not even up to me whatsoever at all — it has nothing to do with me — it’s just me [laughs].
There’s already talk about a second book. Now, some things in the book were left out, for instance you being considered as a replacement singer for both Mötley Crüe and Van Halen. And I know it’s way too early to have even thought about it, but do you think there’s a second book in you?
SEBASTIAN BACH: I know for a fact there’s a second book in me. I could’ve kept going on this one, I could’ve made this one longer, but they cut me off because it’s already pretty fucking long [laughs]. I like to write — I really like it, and I enjoy it. I enjoy making stuff, but the next thing I make will be a record, a vinyl record.That’s the next thing that I’m gonna make. But after that, yes, I’ll do a book, because they want me to and I enjoy it.
