Bach doesn’t need Bolan as his friend

Sebastian Bach 2014Sebastian Bach has said in an interview that he and Skid Row bassist Rachel Bolan could make great new music together at any time, but that he doesn’t need Bolan to be his friend.

Whenever the subject of a reunion has been raised, Bach’s former bandmates have consistently said that they have no desire to write and record again with the singer, refuting any rumours that have been circulating. Bach himself has implied that only one person is preventing the reunion of Skid Row’s classic lineup, with speculation suggesting that person is Bolan.

Bach speaks to RockRevolt saying: “Rachel Bolan doesn’t like me – but I would work with him any time, because the result of that dynamic is really good music.

“Nothing good comes easy. When I read interviews with my old band and they say, ‘We get along great with our new singer – we have barbecues and drink tequila together,’ You know what? I don’t give a fuck about barbecues.

“You don’t hear Mick Jagger saying he loves working with Keith Richards and that they have barbecues together. You hear Mick saying that he hates working with Richards.

“I don’t think you have to be best friends with everybody to work with them.”

Skid Row have been fronted by new singer Johnny Solinger for 14 years.

Meanwhile, Bach is set to release his new solo album, Give ‘Em Hell, on 21st April, and will play a series of dates in the UK to support it. Confirmed appearances are as follows:

5th July: Sonisphere Festival
7th July: Manchester Academy
8th July: Wolverhampton Civic
9th July: London O2 Academy, Islington
