SEBASTIAN BACH On His Friendship With AXL ROSE: 'It's Basically A Text Relationship'

On August 24, former SKID ROW singer Sebastian Bach was interviewed by Foster of the Raleigh-Durham, North Carolina radio station 96 Rock. Bach talked about kicking off the five-concert series in downtown Raleigh dubbed Bud Light CityFest on September 10; his friendship with GUNS N' ROSES frontman Axl Rose; and the summer of rock that was 1991. You can now listen to the chat using the audio player below.

When asked about his relationship with Axl Rose, Bach who recently moved to Los Angeles, the city the GUNS N' ROSES singer has called home since 1982 said, "[Axl] likes to text. He loves texting. It's basically a text relationship. We see each other quite a bit, but he's always firing up the texts. He was gonna sing on [the upcoming Bach CD] 'Kicking & Screaming'. He goes, 'Hey, Baz, what's the last day I can sing on your record?' And I gave him a date, and that day came and went. [Laughs] So maybe we'll get him on the next one. Who knows?!"

Bach's first solo album since 1999, "Angel Down" which came out in 2007 featured a guest appearance by Axl Rose on three cuts, including a blistering version of AEROSMITH's "Back In The Saddle".

Interview (audio):

Bach's new album, "Kicking & Screaming", will be released on September 27 via Frontiers Records. The CD was produced by Bob Marlette (BLACK SABBATH, SHINEDOWN, ATREYU, FILTER) and features young virtuosic guitarist Nick Sterling and drum pro Bobby Jarzombek (HALFORD, RIOT, ICED EARTH). The follow-up to 2007's "Angel Down" was mastered at Precision Mastering in Los Angeles with Tom Baker.

Bach stated about his new solo material, "This CD will follow along the lines of 'Skid Row', 'Slave To The Grind', 'Subhuman Race' and 'Angel Down'. If you like rockin' guitar riffs, high-energy songs and performances, deadly drums of doom, and ear-shattering screams, we got your rock right here!" He also described the songs as "heavy, interesting, classic sounding, modern sounding, completely rock 'n' roll just how we like it!"
