Former SKID ROW singer Sebastian Bach tells The Macomb Daily that he has been approached to write a memoir, which he predicts will make MÖTLEY CRÜE‘s “The Dirt: Confessions Of The World’s Most Notorious Rock Band” “look clean” if he decides to take that tack. “It seems like such an overwhelming project, so don’t hold your breath for it,” Bach says with a laugh. “It has to blow me away before I release it. I want to write it by myself; I look at Duff McKagan‘s [VELVET REVOLVER, GUNS N' ROSES] book, Dee Snider‘s [TWISTED SISTER] book, they wrote them by themselves and they’re amazing books. So I might try, but if it doesn’t put goosebumps on my arm, I won’t put it out.”
Bach told the QMI Agency last year that his memoirs would likely be a collaboration with Larry Sloman, the same man who helped pen “Scar Tissue”, the autobiography of RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS singer Anthony Kiedis.
“‘Scar Tissue’ had a lot to do with Anthony Kiedis‘s relationship with his dad, and I had a very ‘strong’ relationship with my dad,” Sebastian said. “[My dad] was a famous painter in Canada, he owned Art Space in Peterborough in the ’70s and we came from California, and we were like freaks in Peterborough. The Peterborough Examiner — all the articles about when my dad first got there, it was like, ‘The hippies are coming to town!’ I swear.”
In a December 2011 interview with Martyr Magazine, Bach was asked what fans can expect from his autobiography, “I’ve had a crazy life. It’s gonna be from Peterborough to SKID ROW to fuckin’ the Don Jail to Broadway. It’s gonna be a crazy story,” he said.
