singer Sebastian Bach
says that he "doesn't see what the hold-up is" with his former bandmates' reluctance to reunite with him on vocals.Bach
, who was previously not interested in a reunion and was focusing on his solo career, has since had a change of heart. However, not all the members of SKID ROW
seem on board with Bach
rejoining the group. Sebastian
told VH1 Radio Network
's Dave Basner
he doesn't understand why that is.
"It would be very simple," the singer said. "It's like a no-brainer. I mean I make my living still singing those songs along with my solo material and so it's very easy for me to walk up to the microphone and sing my own songs that I've been singing for 25 years. So I don't see what the hold-up is. You'd have to ask them." Bach
in July posted a letter
on his Facebook
page in which he said he was open to reuniting 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 tweet by Bach
about a possible SKID ROW
reunion was an attempt to "get attention."Sebastian
in 2011 tweeted that he wanted his fans to stop asking him about a possible reunion with his former bandmates after SKID ROW
bassist Rachel Bolan
made it clear that the group has "never looked back" following Sebastian
's dismissal from the band in 1996.
Speaking to SCTimes.com
stated about Sebastian
's departure from SKID ROW
, "We thought we were disbanded and that we'd never do it again. Then we kept getting emails and the management office was getting lots of letters about people wanting to see SKID ROW
on stage and we really started to miss it. We knew if we got back together, we were going to do things different."
He added, "When Johnny
joined the band [in 1999], that really gave us a kick in the ass. It was a different guy there and everything that came out of that guy was positive."
On the topic of the persistent rumors of a reunion with Sebastian
said, "Actually, there were never any talks. Ever. That was all just total rumor. We got rid of him in the '90s and never looked back. . . After the first tour [with Solinger
on vocals], it seemed like this is the way it's always been. It's so weird, I'll hear an old song on the radio and it just sounds so bizarre to me because I'm so used to Johnny
