SKID ROW's RACHEL BOLAN Talks About Playing Bass On New STONE SOUR Album (Video) recently conducted an interview with SKID ROW bassist Rachel Bolan. You can now watch the chat below.

When asked what he has been up to lately, Bolan said, "We're starting work on our new album, so to speak. We're doing it a little different this time. We're doing [it in] three segments of five songs each. We have yet to come up with a title for it, but we have the concept and we have songs written. We hope to have something out — the first segment — by Christmas of this year, if all things go well with the studio [since] we all live all over the United States. We still haven't decided [where we will record the album], but we demoed at my house, which is kind of a makeshift studio in my basement. And it came out good enough to get us a record deal. So we're just doing that, and we're just gonna continue to write. And in the meantime, we're still touring quite a bit. We just got back from Sweden and did a bunch of shows in the United States. And on top of that, just out of nowhere, my phone rings one morning, and it's Corey Taylor from STONE SOUR, and he's, like, 'Would you be interested in playing bass on the new STONE SOUR record?' So, of course, I said 'Yes,' 'cause I'm a huge fan of the band and they're all really, really great guys. So I've been doing that in between the SKID ROW gigs. Actually, I'm going back up to finish up… 'Cause it's a double album. And I'm going back too finish up the last five songs. I've got 18 done and I've got five more to go."

SKID ROW's latest CD, "Revolutions Per Minute", was released on October 24, 2006 via SPV Records.

Bolan previously told about SKID ROW's forthcoming sixth album, "I think the next record, as far as what [guitarist Dave] Snake [Sabo] and I are writing, is going back to what people would expect from SKID ROW. We're looking forward to it."

SKID ROW in 2010 parted ways with drummer Dave Gara and replaced him with Atlanta native Rob Hammersmith.

Rob spent many years touring and recording with Atlanta-based rockers ROCKETS TO RUIN and has performed with GUNFIRE 76, the band featuring MURDERDOLLS frontman Wednesday 13.
