Rob Rush, the evening host on Long Island, New York's 94.3 The Shark radio station, recently conducted an interview with former SKID ROW singer Sebastian Bach. You can now listen to the chat using the audio player below. A couple of excerpts follow (transcribed by BLABBERMOUTH.NET).On his long-awaited autobiography, "18 And Life On Skid Row", which will now arrive on December 6 via Dey Street Books (formerly It Books), an imprint of HarperCollins Publishers: Bach: "I've been working on it for about four years, so it's been a very big, overwhelming project. And it's quite crazy. And it's a very long book with lots and lots of pictures. So I think you'll dig it." On being asked about the reunion of SKID ROW's classic lineup: Bach: "I get asked that all the time, and I totally understand, because all five guys from the first SKID ROW record are alive, so, obviously, if you've been listening to that record for decades, which millions of people have, they would be, like, 'Hey, why don't these five dudes get back together?' It's very obvious. So, yeah, I get asked that a lot." On what the music scene was like back in 1991: Bach: "Well, it was a more creative scene, because there was this whole thing where you'd put out a new record and you'd go to the radio station and they'd play the new record and you do an interview about it. Then you go to the next town and you do it again. That whole thing doesn't exist anymore. So it's really about playing live all the time, and that's what it is. And there's good things and bad things about it. You know, the music of a band like SKID ROW or MÖTLEY CRÜE or BON JOVI will always be reintroduced to younger fans, so we're always gonna be playing gigs somewhere. The thing is, for me, when I started out, that's not really why I [got in it]. I got in it to make albums and make songs and put them out and be proud of my album and all that stuff, and that kind of thing is, at this point in time, not so prevalent as live touring is. But everything is like up and down in showbiz and rock and roll. If you could have told me ten years ago that in 2016 I would be a rabid vinyl collector, I would have looked at you like you were nuts. I'd be, like, 'Are you crazy? Vinyl? What are you, nuts?' But things come and go. I mean, if vinyl can come back, so can making records. It's kind of like the same thing." Bach's last solo album, "Give 'Em Hell", was released on April 22, 2014 via Frontiers Records. Interview (audio):
