TV Rock Live conducted an interview with former SKID ROW singer Sebastian Bach on June 28 at Le Forum in Vauréal, France. You can now watch the chat below. A couple of excerpts follow (transcribed by BLABBERMOUTH.NET).
On his new album, "Give 'Em Hell":
Bach: "The sound of it, and my voice, I can't believe it. I don't understand how… I've been playing rock and roll for, like, 25, 27 years, and it sounds the same, my voice, on the record. There are [other] singers that can [also] do that. Steven Tyler, Ozzy Osbourne…
"Some people think, 'Oh, Ozzy, he's not a great singer.' I say, bullshit. I think Ozzy is an amazing singer, because I feel what is in his crazy ficking mind. Like, he sounds, you know… crazy."
On his need to be totally into the music that he is performing:
Bach: "If I don't believe in the words and the song, I can't sing it… If I don't believe a hundred percent, I can't do it. It doesn't work. Like, in the beginning of SKID ROW, when I was a very young boy, I can remember being in a rehearsal, and we were working on a song that I didn't like, right?! But I said [to myself], 'Oh, don't be a jerk. Give it a shot. Be a good guy. Be nice. Try to be part of the team.' So then I walk up to the mic, and my mouth just shuts. And everybody's, like, 'C'mon, dude.' And I'm, like, 'I'm sorry. I can't do it. I'm sorry.' [Laughs] I didn't get into a rock band to sing music that I don't like."
On his all-or-nothing attitude:
Bach: "Part of my personality is that I'm either all or nothing. Like, I either totally love something or… I just said that in my last question… it's either all of nothing. And I love [my fiancée] Minnie [Gupta]; I really love her. And she tells me sometimes that I love her so much that I push her away. She, like, 'You suffocate me. You're like an avalanche.' She uses that word as a verb to me. She's, like, 'You're avalanching me.' [Laughs] And I was, like, 'I just love you. I don't know what to say.'"
