Sebastian Bach may not totally get social media. The former Skid Row singer took aim at his supposed friends and fans in an interview with Miles "The Shoe" Schuman, questioning why only 4,000 of his 800,000 Facebook followers purchased his new album Give 'Em Hell.
Bach told listneners:
I have over 800,000 people that like my Facebook page, that read every word I write on my Facebook page — over 800,000 — and yesterday, it said…75,000 or 80,000 people are talking about it,” Bach tells the radio host. “I would like to thank the 5,000 out of the 800,000 that got my record, and I would like to ask the other 795,000 people, ‘Why are you on my page? Are you there to look at the pictures? Is that why you’re there? ‘Cause that’s simple. If that’s what you want, I’ll put some pictures up, or whatever.’ But I have no clue, when it says 800,000 people and 70,000 people today are talking about this, what are you talking about? What? Like, what are you talking about? [Laughs] I don’t get it. Like, what? What? What? ‘Oh, he’s got a new record out. I’ve loved him for years. I’m not gonna buy that.’ [Laughs] I don’t get it. I don’t understand. I don’t get it. I don’t know why you’re on my page. Like, for what? Why? What? [Laughs] I totally don’t get it.
Country music fans go out and buy the CD. Rappers go out and buy the CD. Justin Bieber fans go out and get the CD. I’ve got 800,000 people on my page, and 795,000 of them don’t get it. [Laughs] Thanks! Killer! Thank you! I appreciate that. Thank you, rock and rollers.
Give 'Em Hell is Bach's third solo album. It's debut this past week at number 72 was one spot better than the 73 peak of his 2011 set Kicking and Screaming. His first solo album, 2007's Angel Down, only made it to 191. During his time with Skid Row, Bach had two top ten albums, 1989's Skid Row (#6) and 1991's Slave to the Grind (#1).
