Sebastian Bach har inga problem med att återförenas med sina forna bandkamrater. Men från Skid Row är intresset svalt. – De ger fansen motsatsen till vad de vill ha, säger Bach.
I en intervju med Full Throttle Rock diskuterade Sebastian Bach nyligen om varför en återförening med Skid Row inte blir av. Ett utdrag ur intervjun följer nedan:
Full Throttle Rock: The subject of a reunion with SKID ROW at some point has been talked about to death, but from my perspective, listening to your last three albums, it appears quite clear to me that you don’t need it. You seem very happy in Bachland.
Bach: Yeah, well, I mean making records and going on tour to me are so different, they are such a different thing. Making albums, in my world, is a creative personal experience where you look inside yourself and your feelings and your thoughts and you express your innermost secrets and emotions in a song. But you are just by yourself with a producer, and so it is a very insular process, which is amazing, because then when it comes out, the whole world gets to investigate, you know, how you are feeling. So it is a very cool thing, really, you can put it in your phone and listen on your headphones and you are really inside my head, like the song “Inside My Head”, I am inside your fucking head when you are listening to this. [laughs] But touring, to me, is more of a physical test of just physically surviving it, with all the travelling and the physical part of being in shape and on stage for an hour and a half or two hours and travelling all night. So when you talk about a reunion with SKID ROW, you know, doing an album or doing a tour are two different things, and I do not know, it is very easy for me to step on stage and sing a SKID ROW song, so there is no reason why we cannot do that together, there is none. You would have to ask them why they would not want to. When I sing, “We are the youth gone wild,” it does not make a difference to me who is playing the bass that day. Whoever wants to play the bass, go ahead. [laughs] I do not do anything different. If they want me to sing it, I will sing it. If they do not, what can I do? You would have to ask them. It is just insanity to me to not give the people what they want. I mean, if the people want something, you and me are both KISS fans, KISS lets the audience be the boss, SKID ROW does not understand that concept whatsoever. They do not, in anyway, acknowledge what the audience wants. [laughs] They will give the audience the exact opposite of what the audience actually wants. I do not understand. But what can I do?
