Sebastian Bach on Skid Row Reunion: ‘We’re Trying to Put It Together’

Story by Charles Ken

Now that the guys of Guns N’ Roses have patched things up and launched a successful reunion tour, so successful that it’s taking in millions of dollars and selling out arenas for years, is ’80s rock band Skid Row next? Well, Skid Row frontman Sebastian Bach recently stopped by KTLA in Los Angeles to talk about his book and the possibility of a Skid Row reunion, and while in the past, band members have seemed content to go their separate ways, Bach gave more hope than usual for that possible reunion tour. 

When asked if the time could be right for the possibility of a Skid Row reunion, Bach said, “Well, (they) exist ’cause we’re still alive.” When continued to ask about it, the vocalist said, “That’s a rough subject for me, ’cause we’re trying to put it together, so I don’t wanna say the wrong thing.” “Trying to put it together” is much more promising than anything Bach has said before on the matter. Bach even closed the subject by saying that a reunion “could be on the horizon.”

Like Guns N’ Roses, Skid Row is a band that for years fans have always wished would reunite, but it seemed like it would never happen. It’s possible that the longstanding success of Guns N’ Roses’ Not In This Lifetime tour is twisting Skid Row’s arm to look at a reunion. The Guns N’ Roses tour brings together original band members Slash, Axl Rose and Duff McKagan, and it’s on its second year selling out major venues across North America.

Bach served as the lead singer of Skid Row until 1996. When he left the band, he went on tour, and Skid Row’s remaining members took some time off and eventually hit the road again.

Bach released his autobiography, “18 And Life On Skid Row,” last December, and the book was just released in paperback on Nov. 14.
