Q: I went into graphic detail with Snake (Sabo, guitar) about a lot of the stuff we talked with Sebastian (Bach) about and since I love both of you, I’ll spare you most of that. I do have to ask one thing though because I was kind of perplexed by something that came up from him recently in regards to your band. He made a lot of headlines a month or so ago when he said that he knew for a fact that there was only one person who was against a Skid Row reunion. I knew from Snake telling me point blank that it was he who was dead set against it but I was also kind of confused because just a few months earlier Sebastian himself was telling me he wasn’t interested and was more than happy with his solo career. How difficult does it make things for the band when Bas floats things like that out on Twitter or whatever?
A: "You know John, I’ve never said anything bad publicly about the guy because I don’t care, it’s my band to sing in now and has been for thirteen years. First of all, when he comes out and says stuff like that it’s all crap. It is, just like “four out of five dentists approve” is crap. He’s been wanting back in the band since I joined but there’s not much he can say about it and not much I care to say about it. His statement that four out of the five guys are wanting a reunion with him was just his way of getting a little attention and we don’t really care either way about it because it’s not going to happen. I’m not saying that to be bad to the dude because I’ve never been that kind of guy to slag him or anything he does. In fact, I totally understand the old Skid Row fans that abandoned us when I joined, that’s fine, I get it. I totally love the fans that stayed on and enjoyed me with the band, of course (laughs) and I totally love the old Skid Row fans that have come back into the fold. I just appreciate all of the fans, old and new, because they’re all Skid Row fans. It’s all about the songs and the creativity and I love that about this band and their fans because they get it."
