SEBASTIAN BACH WANTS YOU TO KNOW HE’S NOT HUNG UP ON THE PAST
Here’s an interesting little piece that Noisecreep ran last week:
“For some reason, Skid Row fans or my fans are so hung up on these three or four tunes that I did a billion years ago,” says Bach, on the phone from the airport, while on his way to a gig tonight (Aug. 25) in front of 20,000 people at Telus Field in Edmonton, Alberta — where he will join country music duo Big and Rich onstage.
“I don’t get it. I completely don’t understand it because when I made it in rock, I said, ‘This is f—ing great. Now I can make music the rest of my life.’ Some people just wanna make the same record over and over again for the rest of their life, and that’s just not me. That’s totally not me.”
And here’s the performance Bach gave with Big and Rich that very night:
Look, Baz: your entire career is dependent upon people being hung up on the past. I know. You know it. Everyone knows it. It’s fine. A lot of dudes from your era are in the same boat. We won’t judge. Make your money, feed your family, whatever. Just don’t pretend you’re on the cutting edge, m’kay? Good.
Glad we had this little talk. Now I’m gonna go blast Slave to the Grind.
