Sebastian Bach and Skid Row Managers in Talks About Reunion
Late last year, singer Tony Harnell abruptly left Skid Row, leaving the door open for the possibility that the band would finally be rejoined by former frontman Sebastian Bach. While the chatter was effectively silenced when the band instead recruited former DragonForce and current Tank singer ZP Theart, it looks like there’s still a crack in that door that would find Bach back up front with the Skid Row.
The singer was a guest on Eddie Trunk‘s Trunk Nation show on SiriusXM and the DJ inquired if there’s an update on the possibility of a Skid Row reunion. Bach was sparse on details, but didn’t rule this out when he stated, “All I can say is that [my manager] Rick [Sales] is talking to [Skid Row’s early manager] Doc [McGhee].”
“That’s all I can say. That is what is happening and I don’t have anything else to tell you,” he continued, injecting his usual bit of humor stating, “All I can tell you is we’re not getting any younger, folks. [Laughs] Let’s put the hair band back together while we’ve got hair. [Laughs]”
When we interviewed Bach, he told us, “I have no animosity towards anybody in Skid Row and the fact that all five of us are still alive in this world is a pretty amazing feat. I would like to hear the five guys who made those records play live together again, yes I would. Because I’m a fan too, I’m a huge Skid Row fan.”
After Harnell quit Skid Row, Bach tweeted that he would “love to bury a 20 year hatchet,” acknowledging he has said “some super sh–ty things to them,” also adding, “I would like to apologize for shooting my mouth off.”
While ZP Theart has been fronting Skid Row since February of this year, the band has yet to make him an official member. The reunion with Bach very much remains possible, though guitarist Dave ‘Snake’ Sabo said that “no one is comfortable” with the idea of bringing back their classic singer prior to Harnell’s departure.
