Sebastian Bach and Skid Row continue war of words over reunion

The war of words between Sebastian Bach and his former bandmates in Skid Row continued this past week, with Bach issuing a response to comments made by Skid Row bassist Rachel Bolan.

Yahoo Music reports Bolan was quoted in a recent interview with Spotlight Report as saying that answering questions about the possibility of working with Bach again is "a waste of time."

“I go on my Twitter feed and I read things like [Jan. 24] was the 25th anniversary of the release date of the first Skid Row album, and Skid Row doesn't give a f---,” replied Bach. “I would love to do something to celebrate it, and my former bandmates are like, 'Nah, we're playing a bowling alley. We're happy. We don't care.'"

"There's a lot of unreleased material sitting around collecting dust," he added. "The fans would love it, but I guess my band is allergic to cash. They're happy not being big. It's such an insult to the millions of people who dug our albums. It's like saying, 'We were just joking [back then]. Happy anniversary!'"

Skid Row’s 1989 self-titled debut reached No. 6 on the US Billboard 200, based on the success of singles like “Youth Gone Wild”, “18 And Life” and “I Remember You.” The record went on to sell 5 million copies in the States alone.

Meanwhile, Bach is gearing up for the release of his upcoming new album, “Give “Em Hell.”

Due April 22 in North America (March 18 in Japan and March 25 in Europe), the project will feature guest appearances by Duff McKagan, John 5 (Marilyn Manson, Rob Zombie) and Steve Stevens (Billy Idol), along with new guitarist Devin Bronson and longtime drummer Bobby Jarzombek.
