Eric Blair of “The Blairing Out With Eric Blair Show” conducted an interview with former SKID ROW singer Sebastian Bach at a massive gathering on December 14 at the Key Club in Hollywood, California to help celebrate the life and music of “Dimebag” Darrell Abbott (PANTERA, DAMAGEPLAN) as part of this year’s Dimebash. You can now watch the chat below.
All proceeds from the concert went to Wendy Dio‘s charity Stand Up And Shout, which raises money for cancer research; her husband, Ronnie James Dio, died of stomach cancer in May 2010.
Bach will play three “special concerts” in New York City at the end of January with BILLY IDOL guitarist Steve Stevens. The shows will take place on January 27, January 28 and January 29 at at The Iridium and will see Bach and Stevens “doing two sets a night,” including “some special unexpected songs.” Sebastian says, “I have always wanted to play with Steve, so I am really looking forward to it.”
In other news, Bach and his solo band will open for GUNS N’ ROSES on December 27 at Comerica Theatre in Phoenix, Arizona and on December 30 and December 31 at The Joint at the Hard Rock Hotel in Las Vegas, Nevada. Bach states, “[The Phoenix show] will be great because it’s our guitar player Nick Sterling‘s hometown and we are playing on his dad Jim‘s 50th birthday! So it will be a fun-filled three days, for sure!”
Bach‘s “TunnelVision” video can be seen below. The clip is one of three videos that the singer filmed on June 28 in Hollywood, California with director Devin DeHaven of Fortress Entertainment (PAPA ROACH, WHITESNAKE, METHOD MAN, TALIB KWELI).
“TunnelVision” comes off Bach‘s new album, “Kicking Screaming”, which sold 6,600 copies in the United States in its first week of release to land at position No. 73 on The Billboard 200 chart. The singer’s previous CD, “Angel Down”, opened with 6,400 units back in November 2007 to debut at No. 190.
