Skid Row’s Former Singer Sebastian Bach Discusses A Possible Skid Row Movie
Skid Row’s former singer Sebastian Bach was recently interviewed by Loudwire where has asked about his thoughts on a possible Skid Row movie. See the exchange below!
It seems like recently the big thing has been the rock ‘n’ roll movies, such as Bohemian Rhapsody, Rocketman and The Dirt. If there were to ever come a time where the band were to agree to do a movie on Skid Row, would you be interested?
I don’t know, really. it doesn’t top my list of things that are interesting. My book 18 and Life on Skid Row was a very big seller, it was one of the top-selling books for the music department, if I recall, for the year. So it’s not an unreasonable question when there’s a book that sells that many copies, whether this book would become a movie.
But I remember this TV show on HBO called Vinyl that came out a couple of years ago, and I was so desperate to like this show because I love vinyl. I loved all the bands that were in there, but then I watched it and they had like Robert Plant yelling at roadies saying, “Get down over here!” Like, who ever thought Robert Plant was bossy and mean and yelling at people?
And I just thought to myself, you know what? If you’re gonna get an actor from the year 2019 acting like Robert Plant or one of these rockstars, it’s like, just don’t man. Don’t even bother [laughs]. It’s not even the same, I only have a limited interest in some actor from now pretending to be one of my favorite rockstars because it’s just like ok, that’s nice.
I don’t really care, I’d rather see one of my favorite rockstars act in a movie, that’s more interesting to me. I don’t really care about somebody pretending to be somebody that’s actually cool. I mean it’s okay, but it’s not at the top of my list of things that are interesting. I think it’s cooler when a rock star takes a chance and acts.
