Why All Of Sebastian Bach's Friends Are Dead

"All My Friends Are Dead" is one of the more curious song titles on Sebastian Bach's forthcoming album "Give 'Em Hell" and in our recent interview with Bach, the former Skid Row frontman explained the meaning behind the track.

He explained, "The term is funny. I just saw it on a T-shirt and I just thought it was funny…but we're all getting older and it seems that everyday I lose a friend. Last week I lost a friend named Dave Brockie, better known as Oderus Urungus of Gwar. He cast me in the Gwar movie, 'Skulhedface' and I went down to Richmond, Virginia and I lived with Gwar for a couple of days and shot their movie and got to know him and he's dead. So, a lot of my friends are dead. And before that, Jeff Hanneman,…it just keeps going on down the line.

"You can also refer to a relationship that's dead. 'You're dead to me', it's actually a song title I've had, 'Dead to Me', but I just blew it because I told you. (laughs) So it can mean that to.

"But I gotta say in the middle part of that song, we go a little crazy, musically, it's like a freestyle heavy metal jam in the middle section. And I unleashed one of my favorite screams erupt out of my throat, in the middle of that song. And I love capturing the pipes on the new record cuz I ain't getting any younger. When I hear my voice like that, at the full roar, like a lion, I'm like, 'damn this is great that I'm capturing this on a record in 2014.' I'm like, cool, I can't believe that's me."
