SEBASTIAN BACH Says ‘A Special Bass Player’ Will Make An Appearance On His New Solo Album

Acclaimed drummer Bobby Jarzombek (HALFORD, RIOT, SEBASTIAN BACH, FATES WARNING) has finished laying down drum tracks for 12 songs on the new solo album from former SKID ROW singer Sebastian Bach. The CD is being recorded at a Los Angeles studio with producer Bob Marlette (BLACK SABBATH, ALICE COOPER), who helmed Bach’s last solo CD, 2011’s “Kicking & Screaming”. A short video message from the studio can be seen below. Says Bach: “We have a special bass player playing on this record, but we’re not allowed to say who it is yet, because he’s so important. But every one of you know who he is. And stay tuned for the announcement on who’s playing the bass in your face.” The guitars on Bach’s new album will be performed by Devin Bronson (AVRIL LAVIGNE, PINK) and Steve Stevens (BILLY IDOL). There will also be songwriting contributions from guitarist John 5 (ROB ZOMBIE, ex-MARILYN MANSON), who co-wrote the song “TunnelVision” on “Kicking & Screaming”. Making a guest appearance on the CD will be bassist Duff McKagan (DUFF MCKAGAN’S LOADED, VELVET REVOLVER, GUNS N’ ROSES). Bach previously stated about his new material: “It is going to be balls-out, kick-ass rock ‘n’ roll with tons of vocal histrionics and harmonies especially… I am going to really concentrate on harmonies and pushing my voice to the maximum you have ever heard it pushed. The riffs are crazy and cool.” Asked if he feels “Kicking & Screaming” got enough credit from the rock community and the fans, Bach told “The Classic Metal Show” in a recent interview: “Yeah. To be on the Billboard chart again is enough credit for me. I like being on the chart. It’s cool that I can put out an album that competes on the charts in this day and age. He added: “I’m not trying to remind anybody of the past; that’s the opposite of what I’m trying to do. I never was doing that. “I don’t understand the nostalgia factor of rock and roll fans at all. When SKID ROW came out in 1989, we weren’t singing songs that were 20 years old, we were singing songs that we just wrote. That’s what I’m doing today; that’s what I was doing then. So I don’t get that whole idea at all.” Bach’s brand new CD/DVD package, “ABachalypse Now”, was released in North America on March 26 via Frontiers Records. The “ABachalypse Now” Ultimate CD/DVD Edition includes never-before-seen footage from last year’s Graspop Metal Meeting festival in Dessel, Belgium, the full never-before-seen Hellfest set from France and the fully-remixed and remastered Nokia show from Los Angeles (originally broadcast on AXS TV), as well as bonus music videos. The DVD contains a running time of nearly 160 minutes. “ABachalypse Now” was made available in two configurations: the Ultimate CD/DVD Edition (2 CDs + DVD) and a standalone DVD. Asked by Italian web radio Linearock.it in a June 2012 interview what the reason is for the frequent lineup changes in his solo band, Bach said, “It’s a very easy answer. It’s all to do with finance. If you get paid a certain amount of money, you can’t pay to play… If I tell a guy in my band, ‘This is what we’re getting. We all have to split it.’ Some guys will be like, ‘Fuck that!’ And I’m like, ‘You know what?! Bye!’ [laughs] ‘Cause it’s a business. When you see me change bandmembers, it’s usually a business decision.”

SIXX Says It’s ‘Absolutely Not True’ MÖTLEY CRÜE Wanted BACH To Replace NEIL

ImageMÖTLEY CRÜE bassist Nikki Sixx has dismissed as “absolutely not true” Sebastian Bach’s claim that the former SKID ROW singer was once asked to replace Vince Neil in MÖTLEY CRÜE. Neil was fired from MÖTLEY CRÜE in 1992 due to personal differences and was replaced by John Corabi. With Corabi on vocals, MÖTLEY CRÜE released one critically acclaimed full-length CD, which ended up being a commercial failure in the wake of grunge despite a Top-Ten placing on the album chart. Asked by a fan on Twitter if he was ever considered to replace Vince in MÖTLEY CRÜE, Bach replied that he was not just “considered” but that he was actually “asked” by CRÜE if he wanted to join the band as its new lead singer. He then added that the story of how close he came to becoming a member of MÖTLEY CRÜE might be included in his upcoming autobiography, which he is currently working on and for which he recently revealed that he had “a big offer from a big book company.” When another fan pressed Bach on why the singer turned down the offer to join MÖTLEY CRÜE, Bach replied: “The short answer is that I actually thought at the time this band SKID ROW was better.” Sebastian then added, “Gee, I sure know how to pick ’em.” Speaking on a recent edition of his “Sixx Sense” radio show, Sixx addressed Bach’s comments, telling his listeners (hear audio below): “I read something online. It’s not true, and I wanna talk about it a little bit. “Sebastian Bach, who was the lead singer from SKID ROW — and I still think he should still be in SKID ROW, and I’ve talked to all of them about that many times; they just can’t along — he says that MÖTLEY CRÜE wanted him to replace Vince Neil. And I’m just gonna say right now that is absolutely not true. “At the time that Vince left MÖTLEY CRÜE in 1990… ’89… ’90.. somewhere in there… ’91… [Sebastian] was in SKID ROW and SKID ROW was on top of the world. And [Dave] Snake [Sabo], their guitar player, was one of my very best friends. So I think I would remember that. “I don’t know where Sebastian got this. I think maybe Sebastian wanted to be in MÖTLEY CRÜE and just forgot to tell us that he wanted to be in MÖTLEY CRÜE when we were looking for a singer. Which I don’t think we would have taken him anyway, just because of our friends from SKID ROW.” Asked by his “Sixx Sense” co-host Kerri Kasem if it’s possible that one of the other members of MÖTLEY CRÜE may have drunkenly told Bach at a bar somewhere that Sebastian “should be” the new lead singer of MÖTLEY CRÜE, Sixx replied: “We were all sober at the time. That was part of the problem — that Vince wasn’t sober and we all were. And that’s kind of part of what the big blowup [with Vince] was all about. “In the end, we should have worked through our differences — MÖTLEY CRÜE should have, with Vince, and been where we are today — but we didn’t. We were young, and we didn’t have managers at the time who were strong enough to say, ‘Hey, guys, this is the wrong thing to do.’ But Sebastian Bach was never part of this master plan, that’s for sure. So I want people to know that.”

SEBASTIAN BACH Says He Was ‘Asked’ To Replace VINCE NEIL In MÖTLEY CRÜE

ImageFormer SKID ROW singer Sebastian Bach says that he was asked to replace Vince Neil in MÖTLEY CRÜE but that he turned down the opportunity because he thought his situation at the time was better.

With Corabi on vocals, MÖTLEY CRÜE released one critically acclaimed full-length CD, which ended up being a commercial failure in the wake of grunge despite a Top-Ten placing on the album chart.

There’s no other guy. It’s like… John Corabi, I love ya — it’s great — but where’s Vince? I mean, that’s the way it is. Walk down the street with me and count how many times [people scream out], ‘Youth Gone Wild! SKID ROW!’ It’s like people shout out of the cars.”
