SEBASTIAN BACH AND BAND tickets went on sale while I was in Europe covering a couple of the summer festivals and seeing the sights. I had given someone in Sydney the responsibility of buying my ticket as this was one show I had no intentions of missing and although Selina’s is a decent sized venue, it’s still sells out regularly. I was a little surprised at the announcement. I didn’t know of anything recently done by Sebastian Bach except Supergroup being shown on pay TV here, but surely that wasn’t the reason for the tour? His new album doesn’t come out until next year.

Skid Row literally exploded onto the scene when they went from the local clubs right into a major arena tour with Bon Jovi. With the help of the hits 18 and Life, I Remember You and the anthem Youth Gone Wild, Skid Row, made up of bassist Rachel Bolan, guitarists Dave “Snake” Sabo and Scotti Hill, drummer Rob Affuso and singer Sebastian “Bas” Bach, ruled the MTV airwaves and went on to sell more than 12 million albums worldwide. After internal problems within caused the band to part ways, the new millennium has seen Skid Row reunite for the KISS Farewell Tour. But they have added new parts to the puzzle including new vocalist Johnny Solinger and drummer Charlie Mills. I had the chance to speak to Dave who filled me in the tour and new vibe they now have.

Interview With Sebastian Bach
With 22 million albums sold world wide, Sebastian Bach is not the most humble of metal gods. However, he was a very funny guy to talk with and the rumors are true – this guy is always on eleven! for anyone who thinks that a singer like Sebastian Bach has no place in a metal webzine like “Metal Rules!!” then I feel sorry for you because Sebastian has one of the best voices in metal. Put a song like “Slave To The Grind” up against any glam band it it totally obliterates it. This style of music is continued on Bach’s new CD “Bring ‘Em Bach Alive” which features 5 new tracks (one written with and recorded with Wolf Hoffman of Accept fame) and 11 live tracks of some of Skid Row’s best material. I got the honor of chatting with Baz on a Sunday afternoon in early December. What follows is a discussion about his new band and CD, his departure from Skid Row along with a loads of other stuff. Bach is BACK – read on and enjoy!
