SKID ROW bassist Rachel Bolan and guitarist Dave “Snake” Sabo were interviewed by Paul Anthony of Planet Rock at this past weekend’s Download festival at Donington Park in Leicestershire, England. You can now watch the chat below.
Speaking about the current state of rock music, Sabo said: “It’s so funny, because rock has been dead and deceased so many times, according to many of the naysayers, and yet, for some reason, [Download festival] still exists, [Planet Rockstock festival] still exists, we still exist. Go figure. I love proving people wrong.”
SKID ROW‘s final chapter of the “United World Rebellion” trilogy will tentatively be released later this year. The disc was recorded at a Nashville, Tennessee studio with producer Michael Wagener, who also helmed the group’s 1989 self-titled debut and 1991’s “Slave To The Grind”.
SKID ROW‘s new disc will mark its first release with South African-born, British-based vocalist ZP Theart (DRAGONFORCE, TANK, I AM I), who joined the band in 2016 following the departure of Tony Harnell (TNT, STARBREAKER).
This past January, Rhino released a 30th-anniversary remastered digital reissue of SKID ROW‘s quintuple-platinum 1989 debut album, which featured the hits “Youth Gone Wild”, “18 & Life” and “I Remember You”. The reissue also includes “Forever”, a b-side recorded during the sessions for the album that previously appeared on the 1998 greatest-hits compilation “40 Seasons: The Best Of Skid Row”, and a 10-track live performance recorded on April 26, 1989 at the Marquee in Westminster, California.
