Skid Row recently parted ways with vocalist Erik Grönwall. The band has since recruited Lzzy Hale of Halestorm for live shows, but has not yet named a permanent new vocalist… though maybe a Sebastian Bach reunion is in the cards?

In a recent interview with Metal Hammer, Bach said a reunion with his former Skid Row bandmates isn’t totally out of the question. Bach points out that his live setlist and Skid Row‘s have a lot of overlap, and that he’s starting to feel bad about collecting royalties from a band he hasn’t been in for nearly 30 years.

“I can definitely see that happening considering they play the same songs I play,” said Bach. “When I get a substantial royalty check for an album I did with musicians that I haven’t been in the same room with since 1996, I feel like a piece of shit. Because we should be giving something back to the fans that have made this great life possible.”

He added: “For me, doing three albums with Skid Row, I was just getting started. I didn’t think it would be over and done with so quick.”

Sebastian Bach fronted Skid Row from 1987 to their end in 1996. Skid Row reformed in 1999 with Johnny Solinger on vocals alongside the 1996 lineup of guitarists Scotti Hill and Dave Sabo, bassist Rachel Bolan, and drummer Charlie Mills.

Skid Row issued a statement on Grönwall‘s departure last week, saying: “Today Skid Row and Erik Grönwall jointly announce that Erik will step down as the vocalist for Skid Row,” said Skid Row in a statement. “Longtime friend Lzzy Hale of Halestorm will be taking over vocal duties for the upcoming scheduled four concerts.

Erik has decided that the travel and rigors of the road is not conducive to his overall health and recovery, and wants to focus on a lifestyle that is more amenable for his well-being, healing and family.

Skid Row is proud of what they have created and accomplished with Erik over the past two years and we wish nothing but the best to him and his health. To celebrate the last two years the band will be releasing a live album that perfectly captures this moment of time in the band’s 35+ year history, to be announced soon.
