Sebastian Bach, the former Skid Row singer, doesn’t really understand how facebook pages work! He has 800,000 fans/likes on his page, and can’t understand why he didn’t sell 800,000 copies of his last album (‘Give ‘Em Hell’).
There’s one thing being upset that all his ‘fans’ didn’t buy his album, but it’s another thing ranting about it in an interview for his fans to hear!
Below you can read what he said in his interview with Miles “The Shoe” Schuman, where he can’t understand why he only sold 5,000 copies of his album:
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. 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.
As you can see, he is very upset, but clearly because he has no idea how facebook pages work, or what facebook’s ‘talking about this’ means, and then goes on to blame his fans for ‘killing’ the genre.
So I urge you, please don’t go publicly slamming your fans cos you don’t understand facebook and you blame them because no one wants your album! Sebastian, you need to have a little social media education!
