According to Seb Bach on Twitter, "4 out of 5" original members of Skid Row want to reunite, and Seb claims he's one of the 4.

Surely the hold out is Rob Affuso? If so, fuck him, do it anyway.

That said, personally I like Seb's solo material, and I like Skid Row with Solinger, so I don't really care. It's been years since Skid Row were here, so I'd go whichever of the two singers was there.

Bit of a turn-around for Seb though. He used to very strongly say he didn't want to do it. Maybe the $ offers have gone up.

Think Snake or Bolan would be the holdout. But who cares anyway.

4 out of 5 people don't give a shit about Skid Row.

If 4 out of 5 metal fans don't care about 'Skid Row' and 'Slave To The Grind', then they're idiots.

Both are very good albums. Especially Slave To The Grind. Bach has probably been offered a big payday if he returns and I see no reason why him coming back wouldn't be successful for the band. I'm not talking like they were back with those first two albums but there would certainly be some interest from people to see them live.

Big pay day? I doubt there are promoters lining up to to pay big for a Skid Row reunion

Bolan is the holdout, supposedly.

All 3 of Baz's Skid Row albums are excellent.

I'd like to see them reunite. It would benefit everyone, finance wise. Their current lineup just ain't cuttin' it.

Skid Row is pretty awful but I like Slave to the Grind (or at least I liked it a few years ago when I last heard it).

They are good records. But no one cares anymore. A reunion would still be playing clubs. They should have reunited 10 years ago. They waited too long.

And continue to wait, it seems.

They would do better here than in the US, I think. Here a reunion with Bach could easily play theatres and high up on festivals.

Would they really be that big in the UK? I figured they'd atleast be able to do mid sized theaters here. But yes 10 years ago would have been better.

I sort of meant Europe as a whole, rather than just the UK, but yeah, separately Skid Row and Seb play to about 1000 people in London, and in both cases what you tend to hear are people aren't interested in Seb solo but want to see him in SR, and aren't interested in SR without him. I think there's a large group who don't go to either separately but would if they reunited.

Plus, look at Seb's positioning on festivals. He's got the same slot as King Diamond and Motorhead at Sweden Rock next week, for example. Headlining the second stage.

Depends on the festival for that, he's second on the main stage at Graspop this year. But without a doubt, Skid Row with Sebastian Bach has more clout than the two separate entities combined. Honestly, I'm somewhat surprised the separate entities are still touring to anyway decent crowds, I would have thought that particular well would have dried up by now!

Clearly enough people don't just conform to the "dur, they broke up and aren't worth listening to now" paradigm and realise that both are still very, very good.
