You can now check out a trailer for the upcoming Reelz documentary “Skid Row: Breaking The Band“, featuring Sebastian Bach below.
The Show premieres on Sunday, June 26 at 10 p.m. ET / 7:00 p.m. PT on Reelz.
In “Skid Row: Breaking The Band“, original members and co-founders Rachel Bolan (bass) and Dave “Snake” Sabo (guitar) along with former singer Sebastian Bach and manager Doc McGhee, give a first-hand account of how SKID ROW burst on to the scene in the late 1980s, setting the charts ablaze and bringing MTV metal to the masses. They also give their own take on the volatile and unpredictable Bach, who in his own words recounts the wildest moments in the band’s turbulent ride and what became the final straw that broke the back of SKID ROW.
“Breaking The Band” is produced by Potato, part of ITV Studios.
In a recent interview with Scott Penfold of Loaded Radio, Sabo was asked how he feels about people still calling for a reunion with Bach. He said (as transcribed by BLABBERMOUTH.NET): “Well, it’s been 23 years [since SKID ROW reformed], so to say that I’m over it would be an understatement. We attempted [a reunion] slightly [back in 2016]. We dipped our toes in the water and realized that it didn’t feel so good. It’s just one of those things where we still could not see eye to eye; we couldn’t even get past the point of simple texting.
“I am really, really happy where we are,” Snake continued. “I’m very proud of our past, and all due credit to everybody who’s been involved in every aspect of our career, whoever that may be, ’cause it all led to where we are now.
“I’ve been asked a thousand times: ‘What about the payday [of a reunion with Sebastian]?’ And that’s all well and good, but if that’s why I did this — if that’s why we did this; I can speak for everybody — we probably wouldn’t be doing it,” Sabo explained. “I wanna be happy, and I am very, very happy. And so are the guys; everybody’s really happy.
“The music climate is what it is, and we’re a classic rock band, and I’m proud of that. And we’re still able to make music. I mean, Jeez — I live a very, very blessed life, man,” Snake added. “I have nothing but gratitude and humility for what we have achieved and for what we’re able to continue to do. So while there may be people out there who are flashing dollar signs with a lot of zeroes, I still have to be happy doing it, and I am. And that’s what’s most important. I need to be happy being in a band with the people I’m in a band with. A lot of other bands can go out and they don’t see each other till they’re on stage and travel on separate buses and all that stuff, and that’s all well and good, but I don’t wanna live my life like that. I don’t wanna be up onstage and kind of living a lie; it just doesn’t feel good. So, while I’m thankful for people’s interest and whatnot, I’m even more thankful that we still get to play music for a living under our terms.”
