On October 23, Moose and Plain Ken of “The Monkey Business Show” podcast conducted an interview with SKID ROW guitarist Scotti Hill.
Asked about the rumors of a SKID ROW reunion with singer Sebastian Bach — which gained new momentum with the release of a photo of Bach and SKID ROW guitarist Dave “Snake” Sabo taken on October 15 at a West Hollywood nightclub — Hill said, “Any reunion rumors usually [start] at a six-month cycle.”
He continued, “Hey, man, I thought those guys looked adorable together; they would have made a cute couple. They ran into each other and took a picture together, and I would have done the same thing. I mean, I spoke to Sebastian earlier this year; there was just no way to take a picture of it. And we talked about something non-band-related. It was cool catching up, and I’m sure it was cool for those guys, too. So it wasn’t any surprise to me, and I also wasn’t surprised about the hype over it and everybody going crazy about the future and all that stuff.”
He added, “Hey, man, the future is we’re going in to record some new SKID ROW in November next month, man. With [current SKID ROW singer] Johnny Solinger, of course. So I don’t have a scoop for you, man. Sorry! [laughs]”
Bach in July posted a letter on his Facebook page in which he said he was willing to reunite with SKID ROW. “For the fans, I would be willing to put my ego aside and do something that would be special for the people who put us where we are today,” he wrote. “I do not personally want it myself. But it’s not always about ‘what I want.’ If the fans really want to see us together, I would do it for the fans. Sometimes you can do things for people other than yourself.”
Bach said he wanted to write the letter in response to current SKID ROW singer Johnny Solinger‘s interview in which Johnny said a recent tweet by Bach about a possible SKID ROW reunion was an attempt to “get attention.”
Bach‘s most recent solo album, “Kicking Screaming”, 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.
SKID ROW‘s last full-length effort, “Revolutions Per Minute”, came out on October 24, 2006 via SPV Records.
In addition to playing guitar in SKID ROW, Sabo works as DOWN‘s manager at McGhee Entertainment.
