In a brand new interview with MLive, former SKID ROW singer Sebastian Bach said that he does not plan to slow down anytime soon.
"I think rock and roll needs me, as I need rock and roll," he said. "I still have a lot of good years in me. I think what I do is a dying art. I'm talking about getting on a stage and really singing. Not lip syncing, and really fronting the band."
Bach recently told The Portland Mercury that part of his success can be attributed to the fact that he doesn't "take this too seriously." He added: "When I got into rock 'n' roll, I never thought I would make it, because I thought that only gods could be rock stars, like AC/DC and VAN HALEN. And so I do everything kind of with a smile, like, 'I can't believe this is happening.' And I think people feel that, that I'm a real fan of rock 'n' roll. It's not a business to me... it's an adventure."
Bach went on to say: "Heavy metal/hard rock is something I feel in my blood, and it makes me move around, and fuckin' jump — it gets me fired up! I think it goes back to when I was a little kid. Me and my friends, our favorite thing to do was to get tennis rackets and put on whatever's popular at the time — BOSTON, CHEAP TRICK, of course, KISS — and we would do jumps off the bed and fucking do all these rock moves. And that's what I do for a living! [Laughs] I still play a mean tennis racket."
Bach is continuing to tour in support of his latest solo album, "Give 'Em Hell", which sold around 4,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 72 on The Billboard 200 chart.
"Give 'Em Hell" was released on April 22, 2014 via Frontiers Records.
As previously reported, Dey Street Books (formerly It Books), an imprint of HarperCollins Publishers, has set a January 19, 2016 release date for Bach's much-anticipated autobiography, "18 And Life On Skid Row".
