Sebastian Bach Won't Rock Velvet Revolver's Mike

May 7, 2008 10:32 AM ET

Despite getting the thumbs up from outgoing singer Scott Weiland, Sebastian Bach will likely not take over the lead-singing vacancy in Velvet Revolver, saying it would be "really awkward." Talking to Tampa radio's "The Buckethead Show," Bach said he likes his own new album Angel Down more than the VR records, plus Bach would rather be singing "old songs" by Skid Row than Guns N' Roses. Most importantly, "I'm very close friends with Axl," Bach said. "Axl's been so nice to me, I don't think I would feel comfortable just joining Velvet Revolver and singing his songs every night. So I don't think that's gonna happen." Besides, Bach's calendar might be booked for a couple weeks after signing up to participate in the honky-tonk debacle known as Gone Country 2.

“Road to Nowhere”

Talking Heads | 1985

A cappella harmonies give way to an a fuller arrangement blending pop and electro-disco on "Road to Nowhere," but the theme remains constant: We're on an eternal journey to an undefined destination. The song vaulted back into the news a quarter century after it was a hit when Gov. Charlie Crist used it in his unsuccessful 2010 campaign for the U.S. Senate in Florida. "It's this little ditty about how there's no order and no plan and no scheme to life and death and it doesn't mean anything, but it's all right," Byrne said with a chuckle.
