Sebastian Bach Weighs in on Rolling Stone’s ‘Top 10 Metal Bands of All Time’
Former Skid Row frontman Sebastian Bach voiced his opinion with Mark Hoppus of Blink-182 on the Fuse show ‘Hoppus on Music’ regarding the ten bands Rolling Stone readers chose as the “Top 10 Metal Bands of all Time.”
Metallica took the number one spot on the list, followed by Dream Theater, and then Black Sabbath came in at number three. Iron Maiden and Slayer round out the top five, and the rest included Megadeth, Judas Priest, Led Zeppelin, Pantera and Tool.
Sebastian Bach, with his arms crossed, asked, “Is KISS on the list?” Bach, an obvious KISS enthusiast, went on to say, “So, we got a top ten heavy metal bands of all time and KISS is not on the list? Well that’s a f—cked up list.
“When you think of metal you think of fire, blood and leather and studs, Dream Theater have none of these things.” Even though Skid Row was the first heavy metal band to debut on the Billboard Charts, unfortunately for Bach, his former band did not make this list.
When Hoppus asked how fans reacted to power ballads, Bach wittily said, “Well, you gotta remember that every bad boy does have a soft side, and I’m not against crooning, I like Journey. Take me out in the back and shoot me.”
