SKID ROW guitarist Dave "Snake" Sabo has ruled out the possibility of the group ever getting back together with former singer Sebastian Bach for a new album and reunion tour. "I will chose to maintain our integrity and happiness over any dollar amount anytime," he said in a new interview posted at SkidRow.net. "And believe me, we have been offered a lot of money to put the original band back together, and we flat-out [said 'No'], it wasn't even a question. Just flat-out said 'No'. What's like happiness? I am the happiest I have ever been playing music these days. Just as happy as I was when I first picked up the guitar. And that says a lot. And I won't trade that for any dollar amount. I just will not, because I know how unhappy I was for a long period of time. Meaning, such a turmoil that occurred within this band that really drove friendships right into the ground. I mean, [SKID ROW bassist] Rachel [Bolan] and [guitarist] Scotti [Hill] are my best friends in the world, and we wouldn't even want to see each other because of so much cancerous, toxic stuff going on around us [during the Bach years]. It drove us away from each other . . . It was really sad man, you know. It was really, really sad because I was so proud of what we had created, and so disappointed that I couldn't hold it together. . . Ever since [singer Johnny Solinger and drummer Phil Varone] joined the band, we haven't had one argument in this band. And I swear to you on my life that it's the truth. And we get along so well. I mean, we hang out together all the time. We're together all the time. We go out to dinner with each other, we're planning vacations together. I mean, that has never ever occurred in this band before." Read more.
