Former Skid Row frontman Sebastian Bach has responded to the band's claims that a classic line-up reunion would be "a waste of time," Classic Rock reports.

As the singer notes, he considers the band's refusal to reform an insult to the fans:

"I go on my Twitter feed and I read things like it's the 25th anniversary of the first Skid Row album - and Skid Row doesn't give a s--t.

"I would love to do something to celebrate it. My former bandmates are like, 'Nah, we're playing a bowling alley. We're happy.'

"I guess my band is allergic to cash. They're happy not being big. It's such an insult to the millions of people who dig our albums. It's like saying, 'We were just joking back then - happy anniversary!'"

Skid Row have been fronted by Bach's replacement, Johnny Solinger for the past 14 years. They're currently working on the second installment of their "United World Rebellion" EP series. Bach, meanwhile, is set to release a new solo album, titled "Give 'Em Hell," in April.

    Dang. I don't know what happened between the members of Skid Row, but if your band would rather play a bowling alley than play before millions for a good amount of cash...than they probably don't like you much Sebastian.

    Pretty sure that at this point Sollinger has been with the band longer than Bach was.

    I guess for the remaining members of Skid Row it ain't all about the money then. Obviously Sebastian is! I'd love to see a Skids reunion, but i understand that Sebastian would be a real pain in the ass to work with!

    i think he just wants in on the new skid material and is tired of being reminded on how big of a has-been he is(in his mind he's still cool tho, it's cool). "Nah, we're playing a bowling alley" is saying "Sorry, I'm washing my hair tonight"...face it, they don't want you "bach"...

    Personally I see it as the opposite.

    I agree. Bach may be a dick, but he's right under all the douchebaggery in his comments. It's kind of pathetic to me all the PR Skid Row is doing right now to try to be relevant again, and people just don't care. Bach was/is Skid Row, and the band would do well to at least realize and acknowledge that.

    1) Skid Row without Bach isn't Skid Row. 2) The band should only play albums from 1999 up. See how many turn up at the bowling alley when word leaks that you ain't playing "18 and life"
