Sebastian Bach Favors Solo Life, But Open to Skid Row Reunion
Sebastian Bach may still be known for his early days in Skid Row to some extent, but the singer has been a solo artist over the past decade and has had some time to reflect on both experiences.
Bach tells the Eau Claire Leader-Telegram that he prefers the solo artist route, explaining, “It’s easier … because I don’t have to have a meeting with everybody about the color of the T-shirts or what the bag tags are going to look like. If it’s my solo band, I get to make all the decisions. In Skid Row, that’s the only reason we broke up, because we’re all very headstrong. But I do the same thing I did onstage with those guys. That’s what I do. I don’t change what I do depending on who I’m playing with. I’m myself. I don’t know what else to be.”
Bach recently revealed that he was open to a Skid Row reunion if his former bandmates wanted to give it a go, but so far all reunion talk has been rebuffed. Bach stated, “We were offered some big shows that they didn’t want to do. So, all I can do is if somebody offers me something either say ‘yes’ or ‘no.’ It’s very easy for me to walk on a stage singing my own songs, so for the fans I would do that. But there’s no update.”
The singer remains busy with life on the road, but says that once there’s a break in the schedule he needs some time to take care of things at home. The musician lost his home in Hurricane Irene, and admits he’s “been living out of a suitcase” ever since. In addition, the home also housed his own personal recording studio, so not having that available will slow his progress on a new record.
