In the last interview given to British The Telegraph. SKID ROW: bass player Rachel Bolan and guitarist Dave “Snake” Szabo asked the writer Ian Winwood whether Yan was in the “company of wealth”. Agreed WynwoodBoth answered with the word “yes” without hesitation. millionaires Yan was surprised. “Yes,” they said. And what about multi-millionaires? “Yes,” was the reply Bolameanwhile Sabo said: “Almost.”
Rachel “There’s a very popular American DJ, who shall remain nameless, who talked down about us on his show, saying we all live in tents. And I’m like, well, then I have two very nice tents. “
Bola has previously addressed people’s misconceptions SKID ROW:‘s financial situation in an interview with Fistful Of Metal magazine last July. When asked if it’s still viable to make a living as a musician these days. Rachel “People have this misconception that everyone in the band is broke and we’re not. We had some huge songs that I think they forgot about and we sold about 23 million records. [laughs], so we’re not broke by any means. I heard a woman say, “Oh, they live in tents,” and I’m like, “okay.” I have a couple of tents, one in Jersey and one in Atlantic City, and they’re good tents, you know.
“We’ve never had to go back to day jobs, the albums keep selling and we’re making good money along the way,” he explained. “It’s another misconception that we play for peanuts, it’s a lot of peanuts. [Laughs] Don’t trip on the shells.”
Still in 2015 Sebastian Bach told Rodney Holder of Australia Music Business Facts only three of the members SKID ROW:‘s classic lineup was part of the band’s record deal Atlantic: Bach, Bola and: Sabo. “And so, those arrangements are made before entering the studio,” said the singer. “You have entertainment lawyers talking to each other about what’s going on, then you sign everything, then you go do it. And the funny thing is that I was not in the room. Rachel Bolan in [more than] 20 years, but we are still in business together. We have the same accountant and I get statements and get… It’s so weird because we’re practically close, still and forever, but I don’t even have any relationship with the guy. So it’s very weird and weird.”
When asked if he was financially “doing well” as a member SKID ROW:, Sebastian “We all did well. When you sell 20 million records, everybody does well. I mean, we’ve sold so many albums and videos, singles… But, you know, we’ve signed a publishing deal. [Jon] Bon Jovi‘s company, which gave him an oversized cut on the first album. And when it happened, none of us realized it, really, and we were very bitter when we found out. But our next record went to #1 Billboard chart so quit your whining. [Laughs] It’s like looking back… He took us on tour… No one thought we’d make it. There were a million groups. We could be BANG TANGO! or TIGERTAILZ: or… We could be… There are a billion groups. We could be BABYLON AD … Anyway, so the fact that we were one of the bands that did it was like a needle in a haystack. So for Bon Jovi to put us on the road in front of his crowd every night, so we managed. So he deserved to be paid for it. He could have taken any other group. So we did all those deals again after the first album “Slave To The Grind” and: “Subhuman Race” and best album. We did it all again.”
What about him as a businessman or not? Bach told Music Business Facts“Definitely, I am the president Check out My Bach Productions, and I am the leader of my group. I have a crew, I have a guitar tech, a drum tech, a sound guy, a tour manager, a monitoring person, band members… So yeah, I’m a businessman. It depends on what interview I’m doing, you know, how I’ll answer it, like I said before. But of course I… Here’s something I have to tell you. I sign my checks. If this is a business article about business, here’s something I’ll tell you. be the person who signs your checks. And that took me years to figure out. I had, in SKID ROW:, accountants that sometimes I didn’t even really know would handle all the money and sign my checks for me. And you know what? It’s not cool. I would say one of the biggest feelings I have is being the guy who signs my checks for my company; no one else has that power and people have tried to get it. And I’m like, “No, I’m the guy who signs the checks.” Sebastian Bach. And so that would be a piece of advice that I would say would be good to keep.”
Bach faced SKID ROW: until 1996, when he was fired. Instead of throwing in the towel, the remaining members took a break and briefly continued playing in a band called; OZONE MONDAY. 1999 SKID ROW: reformed and, after some shuffling over the years, presented a line-up consisting of Bolaguitarists Sabo and: Scotty Hill:next to the drummer Rob Hammersmith and a singer Johnny Solinger.
