Former SKID ROW frontman Sebastian Bach conducted an interview with DUFF MCKAGAN'S LOADED — the band led by VELVET REVOLVER/ex-GUNS N' ROSES bassist Duff McKagan — on the "Black Carpet" at the third annual Revolver Golden Gods Awards, which took place this past Wednesday night (April 20) at Club Nokia in downtown Los Angeles, California. The chat, which was taped for Revolver TV, can be viewed below.Bach, who was among the early names rumored to be taking Scott Weiland's place in VELVET REVOLVER, told "The Buckethead Show" in a May 2008 interview that his close friendship with GUNS N' ROSES singer Axl Rose — who sang on three tracks on Bach's 2007 solo album, "Angel Down" — and a focus on his own music would making joining VELVET REVOLVER "awkward" at best. "I've talked to Slash [VELVET REVOLVER/ex-GUNS N' ROSES guitarist] recently," Sebastian revealed. "I think it'd be really awkward for me to join that band. Number one, my new record, 'Angel Down', I like it more than VELVET REVOLVER records. That's just being totally honest. I love GUNS N' ROSES material, but I've got my own old songs — SKID ROW — so for me, it would all depend on music. I wouldn't just join the band just to join the band. If we came up with some incredible new songs, then maybe I'd think about it, but honestly, I'm very close friends with Axl, and he sings three songs on my new record. Axl's been so nice to me — he's helped me out my whole career. In SKID ROW he helped us out, and in my solo band he brought me around the world, and then sang three songs on my new CD, which is pretty mind-blowing. I don't know… It's a cut-throat business, but Axl's been so nice to me, I don't think I would feel comfortable just joining VELVET REVOLVER and singing his songs every night. So I don't think that's gonna happen."
