On December 6, former SKID ROW singer Sebastian Bach was at Saint Vitus in Brooklyn, New York to read from and discuss his long-awaited autobiography, “18 And Life On Skid Row”. Sebastian was joined in conversation by music writer and The Creative Independent editor in chief Brandon Stosuy. You can now watch the question-and-answer session below.
Asked if he has gotten feedback already from any of the people that he wrote about in his book, Bach said: “I don’t see how it’s possible to get mad at something that happened thirty years ago, like I called them a name or… Like, who cares? You’ve only got so many thirty yearses. So I can’t be mad… There’s a lot of books with me in them that nobody called me about. I don’t ever recall anyone [calling me to ask], ‘Is this okay if I write this about you in my book?’ No, I never got that call. Nah. And there’s a lot of fucked up books out there with me in them.”
He continued: “I’m not even saying that I remember everything perfectly. It’s like [MÖTLEY CRÜE bassist] Nikki Sixx [and his book] ‘The Heroin Diaries’. Were you really keeping a diary when you were doing heroin? C’mon?! Really? [Motions with his right hand as if he is injecting himself with heroin] ‘Oh, this feels amazing.’ We all know it’s a metaphor, it’s an artistic license that you’re using.”
