Skid Row bassist Rachel Bolan tells Times-Standard.com that he and guitarist Dave "Snake" Sabo have been writing some music and gearing up to hit the studio again for the band's sixth album. "I think the next record, as far as what Snake and I are writing, is going back to what people would expect from Skid Row," Bolan said. "We're looking forward to it." Skid Row last year parted ways with drummer Dave Gara and has replaced him with Atlanta native Rob Hammersmith. Rob spent many years touring and recording with Atlanta-based rockers Rockets To Ruin and has performed with Gunfire 76, the band featuring Murderdolls frontman Wednesday 13. Thanks for the report to Blabbermouth.net.

Baz wrote almost none of the music in Skid Row. That said I do feel they miss him, he has the most powerful voice I have ever heard.
    Listen to I Remember You Two. You will hate them instantly.

    if a lion and an elephant were locked in a cage and made to fight, who do you think would win? I'd say the elephant, they have long memories man, they dont forget anything

    This. Or even their original album was awesome. I'm not even excited for anything by Skid Row anymore.

    My band just played with Skid Row and I thought they had a pretty solid set Bachless and all.

    Saw them back when Pantera opened for them. Amazing show. They were touring Slave and Vulgar was a few days away from being released. One of the more memorable concerts I ever went to. From that night's 'Cemetary Gates': "I must reverse my life, and drink beer with the Snaaaake" and later, just before the solo... "Cemetary.....Snake!" Baz stopped & restarted 'Wasted Time' because one of the guitarists was fixing something. "They came to hear it played right!" (or something like that). Even though none of the Skid Row boys have died yet, like Pantera, it will never again be what it once was. I'm happy to say that I was there.

    Its not Skid Row, they need a new name or something. I mean I wouldnt expect them to stop making music but they cant pretend they are Skid Row without the SB man.

    Do you guys still don't understand that Sebastian doesn't want to? Current SR is crap. Dave is gone, Rob is gone, Baz is gone, it's just Scotti and Rachel. It's not Skid Row anymore, and it isn't going to be EVER.

    No Bach, no dice. It's not like we'll get another Slave to the Grind, anyway.

    i think it's pretty obvious that skid row is done with - look at some the crap they put out in the last couple years. i don't even think bach could save this band.

    This all started when Bach had the real fame and they didn't. He was the one on the front of magazines and they weren't. They're jealous SOBs, so I lost respect for these guys a long time ago.

    No. Don't care. You guys wrote one good song called "Ghost" with your new singer, and now a few instrumentalist are gone, and most of all you don't have Sebastian, your music sucks, and Skid Row is a has-been band. Get over it.

    RIGHT?! That's what I've been saying! I hate the new Skid Row, and pretty much everybody else does. I don't think theres a single good song on Thickskin or RPM. Even Sebastian says theyve destroyed the Skid Row name!
