Sebastian Bach Says “There’s No Reason” Why Classic Skid Row Lineup Shouldn’t Reunite

During a recent interview with Florida’s 98.7 The Gater, Sebastian Bach was asked about a hypothetical reunion with his former band Skid Row. The frontman responded by saying that “there’s no reason” why it shouldn’t happen.

Bach said the following:

“Well, there’s no reason not to — there’s none. When those guys [in SKID ROW] try to say [about me], ‘He’s difficult to work with,’ let me just say this one more time. We have not been in the same room together since the year 1996. Shut the eff up about you thinking you know what I’m like. You don’t know anything about what I’m like. And the ‘Gilmore Girls’ think I’m okay to work with; Broadway thinks I’m okay to work with; the ‘Trailer Park Boys’ think I’m okay; GUNS N’ ROSES think I’m pretty cool. We’re not getting any younger.”

He also added that he thinks a reunion “should” happen:

“For the fans. And we are absolutely running out of bands — bands that can play in sheds. The fact that we are all still alive and we are all in our 50s — some closer to 60 than others — but that, to me, is selfish that we’re not together. I can play with anyone. I do play with everyone [laughs] — except for them.”

Sebastian Bach Tests Positive For COVID-19, Says He “Feels Totally Great” Thanks To The Vaccine

Sebastian Bach (ex-Skid Row) has revealed that he has tested positive for COVID-19. The frontman has already been fully vaccinated, but some breakthrough cases like his are expected considering the vaccines are not 100% effective at stopping infection. Despite this, the shots are still effective at preventing death and severe illness.

Bach said the following in a video that was posted on his social media accounts:

“If you’re wondering why I’m by myself wearing a mask, I guess it’s time to let you guys know I have been diagnosed and have tested positive for COVID. Yes, it’s true. But I have to tell you that I feel totally great. [Laughs] I’m fully vaccinated. I was given the vaccine — the J&J [Johnson & Johnson], one shot and done — back in March. But I guess COVID wasn’t done.”

Bach then shared a list of places he visited when he was feeling “totally fine,” including various locations in Nevada, Tennessee, Arkansas, and Oklahoma. He also shared the following message along with the video:

“After doing 2 shows & going to my wife’s High School reunion, I came home & tested positive for covid. Here are the locations I could have got it in any one of these places. Thank God for the vaccine I can’t wait to get another one 💉 all symptoms are gone now not canceling shows”
