SEBASTIAN BACH Performs SKID ROW Classics With Country Duo BIG & RICH; Video Available

Ex-SKID ROW singer Sebastian Bach performed two classic songs from his former band — "Youth Gone Wild" and "I Remember You" — with American country music duo BIG & RICH on August 25 at Telus Field in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada.

Fan-filmed video footage of the "I Remember You" performance can be viewed below.

"John Rich [from BIG & RICH] asked me to come on a whole Canadian tour in January, tentatively," Bach told Noisecreep in a recent interview. "If it goes well in Edmonton, he said, 'Dude, let's take this thing across Canada — 20 gigs, BIG & RICH. You're on the bill every night, every city.' I'm like, 'You tell me when. Give me the plane ticket, and I'm there!' because I just love playing. I love playing music."

Bach told Noisecreep that he has written at least 10 songs for a country solo album, which he will probably release sometime next year.

"It takes a long time for me to feel like I can put my name on a record," Bach said. "I hate to use that word 'country' because people have a weird idea. To me, my idea of country is NEIL YOUNG 'Old Man', or ALLMAN BROTHERS, or WILLIE NELSON 'Whiskey River' and stuff like that. I like outlaw country. I like the bad-ass Waylon Jennings coke country [laughs], Leon Russell with long hair fucking partying [laughs]."

Bach was invited last year to live in a house with a cast of contestants on the CMT reality show "Gone Country 2". Sebastian was put through 'country lifestyle' challenges, but also had the opportunity to write songs.

"I won, dude," Bach said. "That's the point of the whole thing, I'm saying. I was the winner and I've done a lot of these reality shows, and this was by far my favorite reality show I ever did because the prize that I won. I got a $75,000 video."

Bach penned two songs on the show, "Jumping Off the Wagon" and "Battle With the Bottle", with solo artist Jeffrey Steele (who has written hits for MILEY CYRUS and RASCAL FLATTS) and Vicky McGehee (TOBY KEITH, TIM MCGRAW, FAITH HILL). "There are couple of other songs, but those are the two good ones," Bach told Noisecreep. "I tried to cover all the bases in country music — one song's about drinking, one song's about not drinking [laughs]."
