Skid Row guitarist Dave ‘Snake’ Sabo has explained why talks with former frontman Sebastian Bach about a possible reunion fell apart.

The singer acrimoniously split with band in 1996, saying at one point that they were “allergic to cash” claiming Rachel Bolan and co turned down $500,000 for two reunion shows.

Bach attempted to mend his relationship with his ex bandmates last year and reported that talks about a reunion were taking place behind the scenes.

Nothing came from those meetings – and now Sabo has explained the reasons behind the decision not to pursue a reunion.

He tells Eddie Trunk (via Blabbermouth): “I think everybody was entertaining the idea – and I think we realised that whatever it was that tore us apart years ago still existed.

“We got offered a lot of money. There was a lot of stuff that's been said about what happened and tours being booked – that didn't happen. Any offers that came in came through to me and Rachel, because it's our band.

“So there was a good amount of money being offered. And then with the dialogue that went back and forth, it got ugly again.”

Sabo insists the decision to walk away from a reunion had “nothing to do with money” and adds: “It was more about control. Other people having a desire to have more control over this thing than we were willing to give. And it was not about anything other than this is our band.
