FROM SKID ROW TO BROADWAY,
FROM THE GUTTERS OF NEW JERSEY TO SAVILE ROW,
HEREIN LIES THE TALE OF THE FIRST THIRTY YEARS OF BACH ’N’ ROLL, MOTHERTRUCKERS!!!!!!
Sebastian Bach is the epitome of a rock ’n’ roll front man. Loud, boisterous, sometimes self-destructive, and constantly creative, he was the electrifying, iconic lead singer of Skid Row—the band whose platinum-selling songs “18 and Life,” “Youth Gone Wild,” and “I Remember You,” took the world by storm, and were MTV mainstays. But Bach is no ordinary rock star.
In his whip-smart, exhilarating, and brutally honest memoir, Bach tells his story of Skid Row: the parties, drugs, and international tours with Mötley Crüe, Aerosmith, Metallica, Slayer, and Guns N’ Roses, as well as the one-of-a-kind voice that carried him through Skid Row’s heyday and their eventual breakup. With typical Sebastian-esque scream and bravado, he reflects on the cost of fame, the price of creativity, and what it means to go from rock hopeful to rock star.
From his birth in the Bahamas to his teenage years in Canada to the music that rocks his life today, 18 and Life on Skid Row is the ultimate story of Sebastian Bach and his devotion to the music he loves.
