why did Skid Row split?

According to Sebastian Bach in the first episode of "SuperGroup," Doc McGhee (who is the "Supergroup" manager and also managed Skid Row back in the day) "fired" Bas from Skid Row in the mid 90s.. make of that what you will, I guess.

Apparently Bach gets ugly when he gets drunk (a situation that looks like it will surface in a future episode of Supergroup) and the rest of the band got tired of putting up with him...

 

But then, that's Bach's side of the story... I'm sure if you asked Rachel Bolan or Snake Sabo you'd get a different one

Until I heard Sebastian say Doc was the one that fired him from Skid Row I had always thought the band did it. The story I always heard was that X-mas 1996 there was an ugly phone conversation between Snake and Bas when Snake was at his mom's house. I remember Bas answering questions in Metal Edge in 1997 saying that they won't call him back. It's a shame because I think they had credibility with both Metal fans and glam fans, and they probably would be able to play much bigger places and maybe have a better record deal if Bas was in the band.

On I married S. Bach on Vh1, he said the band wrote the music for the whole next lp and just dropped it off to him to write the lyrics, he got pissed and thought the band should be together during the process of writing both music and lyrics and that was the beginning of the end. Sounds like there's more than just any one reason he was kicked out/quit.

Plain & simple...they just didn't get along. Bas has a personality that most people wouldn't be able to deal with. Once the slandering starts in the media, at a certain point you can't go back. It's just too late.

 

Very sad though because their albums are excellent!

The first 2 were great and the B Side Ourselves was ok, but Subhuman Race was a clunker ;) Even IF they were to get Bach back, I doubt that Rob Affuso would ever come back. They really did a number on him after he was let go.

I read that some japanese promoter offered the band some nice coin if the original line up got back together & did a mini tour over there, but Sabo & Co. shot that idea down. I guess they're happy making shitty Goo Goo Dolls sounding records. :2up:

I love Subhuman Race. "Beat yourself Blind", "Breakin' Down", "Into Another", "My Enemy", "Firesign", "Bonehead", "Face against my Soul", and "Elieen" are all killer songs.

Yeah it was darker than the previous two but still very very good stuff.

Bach hardly wrote any lyrics for any Skid Row album, did he? I thought he co-wrote about 2 or 3 on 'Slave to the grind' and a couple more on 'Subhuman race'... but that was about is, wasn't it? Wasn't it Bolan and Snake who did the majority of songwriting?

 

I also quite like 'Subhuman race'. IMO, by far their weakest disc because it sounds like such a HUGE step back musically... but songs like 'Breakin' down' (one of my faves ever!), 'Into another' and 'Eileen' are great. The rest, like 'My enemy' and stuff is pretty cool if in the right mood.

I must confess that I've never heard SUBHUMAN RACE. Sounds like something I should be checking out tho... I kinda lost track of Skid Row after "B-Side Ourselves." I still dust off that cassette once in a while cuz I love the cover of the Ramones' "Psycho Therapy." Any band that gives props to the Ramones gets a gold star in my book :)

Come on now Geoff. You can say you don't like it as much as the others but to say it's musically a step back is crazy. It is miles ahead of the others as far as that goes...

Bolan and Snake pretty much wrote everything. While Rob, Scotti, and Bas did have a co-write here and there, it was Rachael and Snake that came up with the killer songs.

 

I do agree that Subhuman is their weakest even though I think it's killer. The problem is the 1st two are so fucking good that Subhuman will always pale in comparison.

No way mate... sorry, but I really disagree with you there. I'm not a dashing musician myself so cannot comment on fact, but to me I was stricken by how good 'Slave to the grind' is. Heavy, melodic, awesome riffs and musical arrangements, plus that killer production. (I also love the debut too).

 

But, to me, even though I like the disc, 'Subhuman race' sounded a lot, sloppier, for want of a better word. The guitar was nowhere near as melodic, or well-played, IMO. More downtuned riffage and playing, without the "fancy" work of earlier albums. The vocals were not even on the same wavelength as the first 2 (though I still love Bach's vocie on it) and the overall sound and production was more "muffled" and definately, IMO, a HUGE step back from 'Slave to the grind'.

 

Just my opinion, of course, mate. :D

Your opinion is always welcome brother...even if you are wrong :P

 

 

I just can't understand it I guess. To me, sonically this album sound wise was way ahead of the other two. I love Slave, and I see alot of similar things but I like the heaviness of Subhuman Race. I'll take the slow, heavy riffs as opposed to the candy-like debut anyday...let the slaying begin! :)

Well, I guess I'm in agreement with Geoff on this one. While I did like 'Subhuman Race', I thought that it was their weakest album. It just didn't compare to the first two (especially 'Slave To The Grind'). I'm also with Geoff about 'Breakin' down' being one of my faves ever! I really love this song and 'Wasted Time'. Actually 'B Side Ourselves' is their worst album for me, but I didn't count this one as it was cover songs and stuff they didn't write.

I thank you for the offer bro, but Wes is gonna take care of it for me. He and I are in the midst of a trade anyway so he's going to throw that one in for me.

Here's a random Skid Row related news item that I pinched off of Blabbermouth... so I guess the rumors of a Skid Row reunion are false at least for now...

 

SEBASTIAN BACH: I Am Not Playing Any Concerts With SKID ROW' - May 28, 2006

 

Former SKID ROW frontman Sebastian Bach has posted the following message on his official web site:

I AM NOT PLAYING ANY CONCERTS WITH SKID ROW.

I AM NOT PLAYING THE STARLAND BALLROOM WITH SKID ROW.

I AM NOT PLAYING THAT CLUB IN INDIANA WITH SKID ROW THAT HAS AN AD IN THE NEWSPAPER NEXT TO MY PICTURE THAT SAYS 'PAY $50 FOR A VIP TICKET TO MEET THE BAND!!!'

 

"Not only that but ...

 

SNAKE SABO IS NOT IN SKID ROW.

ROB AFFUSO IS NOT IN SKID ROW.

 

"If you go to see 'SKID ROW' in 2006, you are in fact going to see only two out of the original five members of the band."

I knew Snake was having some problems but I didn't know he wasn't in the band. Maybe he's just not touring right now. How can he not be in the band because it was his band.

Maybe the "reason" :anon: they split up was the old, classic & for the most part oft used reason/excuse/explanation of "artistic differences" :blink: which tends to get used with most bands/members when they need a break from each other (like a vacation wouldn't do the trick? :crazy: , hell, some bands take years off/away from each other and/or in between recording sessions, tours or P.R. stuff), but it may have been the boozin', the broa...(no offense to the any/all ladies :) ) er, ladies :tits:;) & then you have the record exec's wanting/waiting for the next "hit" single or record, lol, cd, well, whatever. :doh: Oh, & then there's that little thing named druuuuuggs' involvement for :crazy::hammer::screwy::yikes: all the ingredients of a split up, not to mention probably lack of ideas for new material, in some cases. :whistle: Thas IMO, of course I could be wrong! :drink::bananamac:

    • Ok. I can understand your thinking regarding one`s favorite bands. In my case it was  Bon Jovi. First album I ever bought was Slippery, liked NEw Jersey even better. Saw them live few times, but after 1995 only some good songs on each album but still bought albums,  since Richie left I cant stand their latest albums or even live. So from that scenario I see that I am not just following my favorite bands regardles what they put out.     But in Tesla case I do stlll enjoy their releases, even those post 2010. A admit that Shock had some filler but also some of their best songs post 2000 like The Mission.   I do miss the heavier  element that Tommy brought. songs like  Dont de-rock me, Action talks.
    • Blondie on the right of the second shot is PERFECTION! 
    • In rough order.....   Dangerous Toys – Pissed Michael Sweet – Michael Sweet Motley Crue – Motley Crue Great White – Sail Away Gun – Swagger LA Guns – Vicious Circle Jackyl – Push Comes To Shove Cinderella – Still Climbing Electric Boys – Freewheelin’ Enuff Z Nuff - Seven Gilby Clarke – Pawnshop Guitars Juno Roxas – Far From Here Kiss – Kiss My Ass Alice Cooper – The Last Temptation Manic Eden – Manic Eden Big Bang Babies – Black Market Tuff – Fist First Freak Of Nature – Gathering Of The Freaks Sass Jordan – Rats Trixter – Undercovers The Heavy’s – Metal Marathon
    • Another one from this year that hasn't had much fanfare. These guys are always great value.  Very, very solid, Killer Hard Rock!!! I get a Robert Mason "vibe" with the vocals, which is always a good thing.                
    • Link to first single on its own:       I like it.
    • From the Frontiers Facebook page: Frontiers Music Srl is pleased to announce the signing of Enemy Eyes, a new melodic metal band fronted by vocalist Johnny Gioeli (Hardline, AXEL RUDI PELL OFFICIAL SITE, Crush 40). Johnny is currently putting the finishing touches on Enemy Eyes' debut album, which will be released this fall. In the meantime, the band is pleased to present their debut single, 'Here We Are' for your listening pleasure. Stream it on your preferred digital music service HERE: https://orcd.co/enemyeyes or jump straight to YouTube to listen HERE: https://youtu.be/jV_4j6d25R8 Of note, this will be Gioeli's 100th official release as a recording artist after decades of multi-platinum, gold, and critically acclaimed albums. A true landmark recording in his discography and also the beginning of a new chapter. Johnny Gioeli first came to prominence with Hardline, a melodic hard rock band that he formed with his brother Joey and which famously featured Journey guitarist Neal Schon on the band's debut album, "Double Eclipse".
