Former SKID ROW frontman Sebastian Bach played his first show with Los Angeles-based guitarist Jeff George last night (Friday, September 28) at Casino Nova Scotia in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada. Fan-filmed video footage of the concert can be seen below.
George, who has previously played with ASKING ALEXANDRIA‘s lead vocalist Danny Worsnop, joined Bach‘s band as the replacement for Nick Sterling, who left the group in early August due to a contractual dispute over a live television broadcast.
Sterling played guitar, and co-wrote many of the songs, on Bach’s latest album, “Kicking & Screaming”.
Bach used several guest guitarists at some of his recent shows, including Jinxx (BLACK VEIL BRIDES) and Brent Woods (WILDSIDE, VINCE NEIL).
Asked by Italian web radio Linearock.it in a June 2012 interview what the reason is for the frequent lineup changes in his solo band, Bach said, “It’s a very easy answer. It’s all to do with finance. If you get paid a certain amount of money, you can’t pay to play… If I tell a guy in my band, ‘This is what we’re getting. We all have to split it.’ Some guys will be like, ‘Fuck that!’ And I’m like, ‘You know what?! Bye!’ [laughs] ‘Cause it’s a business. When you see me change bandmembers, it’s usually a business decision.”
