Sebastian Bach Got Covid-19 Despite Vaccination


Former Skid Row singer Sebastian Bach has announced that he’s contracted Covid-19 despite being vaccinated.

Bach reports feeling “completely fine” despite a recent positive test following a series of fly-in live performances. So-called “breakthrough infections” have been attracting media attention lately although they remain rare. The three vaccines available in the U.S. remain tremendously effective against preventing severe disease, hospitalization and death even though the new Delta variant of the coronavirus has proved more capable of infecting vaccinated people (97% of hospitalizations consist of unvaccinated people).

Bach posted a video message on social media on Friday, August 6, explaining (in part):

“If you’re wondering why I’m by myself wearing a mask, I guess it’s time to let you guys know I have been diagnosed and have tested positive for Covid. Yes, it’s true. But I have to tell you that I feel totally great. [Laughs] I’m fully vaccinated. I was given the vaccine — the J&J [Johnson & Johnson], one shot and done — back in March. But I guess Covid wasn’t done.”

Bach then went on to list the places he’d been on a run with his band where he suspects he may have become infected, including airports in Las Vegas, NV, Dallas, TX, Fort Smith, AK, Tulsa, OK, Nashville, TN, Smyrna, TN, Beaver Dam, KY, Owensboro, KY, the various airplanes he rode on between those places, and the shows themselves.

Bach is scheduled to tour North America this fall for a 30th anniversary celebration of Skid Row’s Slave to the Grind. Dates:
