Sebastian Bach Clarifies What Prevented Skid Row Reunion

When asked about the possibility of reuniting with the original Skid Row members, the vocalist gave his response, saying:

“Well, I do think so because I really think that the main reason that that hasn’t happened is because of business. We haven’t been in the same room since 1996. That’s a fact. So I don’t have anything against anybody from 1996. I don’t even barely remember 1996 [Laughs]. So, I mean, the fact that we’re all still alive, I would say, yes, I think if we can figure out the business side of it, then there’s no reason why not to.”

Bach released a new solo single featuring Rob Affuso, the original Skid Row drummer, hinting at a mini-reunion. He noted that both his band and the current Skid Row have some original members and laughed about the effort to reunite more. He then discussed what would be needed for a full reunion of the original band members, explaining:

“I’m sure you’ve seen the Metallica documentary ‘Some Kind Of Monster’ where they have all the therapist and everybody. ‘We have to stop at 4 p.m.’ I’m sure you’ve seen that. It’s all about the band working with a therapist. Skid Row never worked with a therapist. We didn’t have anybody at all trying to help us out or be a mediator — that never happened ever.”

So, I don’t understand when I read, like, a book on Aerosmith or a book on Mötley Crüe or a book on the Red Hot Chili Peppers, all these bands have therapists that work stuff out in between the band members. I don’t understand why we never even tried anything like that. We can’t even text each other. Well, why does every other band get [a therapist], but we don’t? So that kind of pisses me off a bit.”
