Sebastian Bach Talks New Guns N Roses Songs

Metal Edge magazine recently conducted an interview with former SKID ROW frontman Sebastian Bach. An excerpt from the chat follows:

Metal Edge: Do you ever get [Axl Rose] on the phone and say, "Will you just put your fuckin record out already?"

Bach: I said that to him once, and it was one of the only times he bristled at me. He goes, "Oh, everybody, Sebastian's got a great fucking idea. Hey! I should put out a record! Thanks, man what would I do without you dude... that's awesome." I was like, "OK, I get it. Ill never say that again." See, the thing that nobody gets, that I get, is that he has like four albums done. I've heard it. So get ready! All you people who don't think he's gonna put out a record are sadly mistaken. He just takes his time. It's his album. Axl does what he wants to do, that's the way it is. And just 'cause you havent heard it doesn't mean it's not done."

Metal Edge: Well, I've heard the six tracks that were leaked, and they're amazing.

Bach: But those aren't the final versions. He laughed about those. Those aren't the record. Those are some other version of whatever. One of my favorite songs — I asked Axl if I could mention the song titles and he said "Fine" — and one of my favorite songs is this song called "The General", which is so… it's by far the heaviest metal tune I think ive ever heard Axl do, this slow, grinding riff with these high, peircing vocals, screaming vocals. I was like, "When is this coming out?" And he said "2012" I was like, "Dude, you're killin' me!" He goes, "Well, this comes out on the third record. It relates to this song, it's a trilogy, this goes with this lyrically." He's got it all figured out, he's just different than other people. He does things on his own time, in his own way, but you know...the world's not prepared for what I've heard from this guy. It's got the grandness and the epic-ness of "November Rain" but with the snarl, the attitude of "Appetite". Because the album that I've heard, a lot of the drumming is by Brain, who plays so heavy and mean. It's a really...grand is the word for it, but its still got that attitude. There's some great music comin' your way.

there's really no way for axl to regain his spot in music (if he ever really had one) unless his "4 albums" are the most epic thing ever.

Ridiculous. I know exactly what's going on. This is all part of Axl's sinister part to take over the world.
JUST GO WITH ME ON THIS.
He releases a string of albums ending with the 2012 one. At that point, Axl will be so popular, he'll announce he's running for president and subsequently win. That's when he declares war on the world and they all bow to him for eternity. It all makes perfect sense now...

I really, REALLY want to believe Bach here - I'm really, REALLY hoping what he says is true.

But I doubt it.

Well, maybe the big problem is how to make all that a commercial success?! You know that CDs won't sell much, so what? He can keep recording for a lifetime spending fewer bucks than to promote the damn thing while the business guys figure out how to make money out of the material. In the end of the day it's easier to him and the band play this game.

It'll sell off curiosity alone.So the fact that he has not released makes less and less since every year.

Bach has been the source of nearly every thread relating to "Chinese Democracy" for over a year and every time I read one of his quotes I laugh, he is clearly in love with Axl. Also he needs to stop perpetuating the rumour that is this album, stop featuring in s**t reality tv programmes and focus on his own tattered career. I'll check out his new album "Angel Down" later this month.

I'd rather hear Slash, Duff and whoever else they want for the rest of the band with Bach. That guy has just about the coolest, most unique voice in all music. He should have been the singer for VR, not that hack "no one knows what hell my lyrics mean" Weiland. Oh and fu ck Axl too.
