Sebastian Bach Keeps Solo Career A Priority

Of the Oakland Press

It’s been a dozen years since Sebastian Bach left Skid Row, and despite recent reports, he said has no plans to join another band.

Rumors about Bach, 40, replacing Scott Weiland in Velvet Revolver began swirling around during the spring. But Bach says that “to be clear, they never asked me to join them.” What is true, the singer adds, is that Velvet Revolver and former Guns N’ Roses guitarist Slash did call him “out of the blue ... to talk to me about working together, but it was not Velvet Revolver.

“It was a completely different project, and I can’t tell you what it is ’cause it’s mind-blowing, but I’ve been sworn to secrecy on that. But nothing’s happening right now with me and him.”

Bach — whose acting credits include “Jeckyll & Hyde” and “The Rocky Horror Show” on stage and “The Gilmore Girls” on TV — has plenty to keep him busy until anything happens with Slash, however. He’s re-released his 2007 solo album, “Angel Down” — which features Guns N’ Roses frontman Axl Rose on three tracks — as an expanded FYE exclusive. And he’s started writing material, mostly “fistin-the-air kind of anthem songs,” with Hatebreed’s Jamie Jasta for another unspecified future project.

Also on Bach’s future docket is the CMT reality show “Gone Country 2,” during which he spent time in Nashville writing with Jermaine Jackson, *NSYNC’s Chris Kirkpatrick and actors Lorenzo Lamas and Sean Young.

Bach, who was previously part of MTV’s “Celebrity Rap Superstar” and VH1’s “SuperGroup,” is prohibited from talking about the results but says that the show will be “a lot of fun to watch — a lot of mayhem, a lot of drunk arguments, only not from me this time. It was a fun show, man.”

Sebastian Bach performs with Poison and Dokken at 6:30 p.m. Saturday (Aug. 9) at the Freedom Hill Amphitheatre, 14900 Metropolitan Parkway at Schoenherr Road, Sterling Heights. Tickets are $30.50-$132 pavilion, $20.50 lawn. Call (586) 268-5100 or visit www.freedomhill.net.
