Sebastian Bach: “Skid Row Didn’t Want ‘I Remember You’ In Rock Of Ages”

Written by Kiel Egging on June 19, 2012

Sebastian Bach has revealed his former Skid Row bandmates stopped the band’s music being used in the movie adaption of Rock of Ages because “they don’t like money”.

According to Blabbermouth, Bach said in an interview with Cristina Massei of Sonic Shocks that producers wanted the Skid Row track I Remember You to be included in the film. However, guitarist Dave Sabo and bassist Rachel Bolan, who have co-writing credits for the song, refused their requests.

“[The producers of Rock Of Ages] wanted I Remember You [to be] in the play and the movie, but Snake and Rachel don’t like money,” Bach said.

“They have an aversion to cash. They’d rather not have cash. I don’t know why — you can interview them about that — but that is the truth of the matter. The play wanted the [song] and they didn’t want it in the movie — because money is bad.”

Bach also revealed that producers of the Broadway version of Rock of Ages were “at him for years” to play the lead role of Stacey Jaxx – following his previous appearances in Jesus Christ Superstar and Jekyll & Hide.

“I was the first person they asked to do Stacee Jaxx [Tom Cruise’s character in the Rock of Ages movie] on Broadway”, he said.

“I was the very first person they asked. They wanted me to do that for years. They wanted me to do it when it was off Broadway. And they wanted me to do it when they wanted to move on Broadway.

“But I don’t know if I want to sing other people’s music every night when I have my own music.”
