18 and Life on Skid Row
18 and Life on Skid Row | Sebastian Bach
10 posts | 10 read | 7 to read
In this uncensored, unfiltered memoir, the musician and former front man for Skid Row tells the story of how a choir boy became a mega-successful hair metal god, rode the wave of fame in Heavy Metal’s heyday, and came out alive on the other side when glam rock went the way of the cassette tape and the Walkman. Sebastian Bach is an iconic rock vocalist who has sold in excess of twenty million records worldwide. Best known for his powerful high vocal range and his flowing blonde locks, he’s been a stand out member of the metal music scene since he was fourteen. From first joining Kid Wikkid, Bach has rocked out with Skid Row, Madam X, The Last Hard Men, The Frogs, and Frameshift, and with famous friends such as Aerosmith, Bon Jovi, Soundgarden, Pantera, and Guns ’N Roses. But eventually the party bus stopped and the rock star grew up. Yet the fun didn’t end. Bach established a successful solo career as an actor, musician, and singer, appearing on numerous television shows and on Broadway. In this no-holds-barred memoir—raw, powerful, wild, funny, and reflective—he charts his unconventional childhood, first in the Bahamas and then in his rise from small-town Canada to the world’s greatest concert stages to the Great White Way and beyond. There’s the usual sex, drugs, parties, women, hair products, and headbanging rock ‘n’ roll, but there is also a lot more. Here is a rock star who can write, tell a great story, and has kept his career moving forward despite the changing musical landscape. Through it all, this talented artist remained devoted to his craft, and to having a damn good time.

As an 80s kid (well, born in '78), I liked metal music but couldn't really get into it. In the 90s (and through today), I liked nearly every kind of music, and since the 90s was my heyday, the music from then is what makes me happy. Skid Row was one of those bands that was on my radar but I only knew their hits. Reading this so-so memoir (skips all over the place, not the greatest writer) led me down many memory lanes. 👇🏽

LauraBrook It also kicked off many YouTube rabbit holes, rewatching old videos I knew and loved, and finding some new ones too, matching up band names with songs and vice versa. What surprised me most about this book is how seriously trained Sebastian is as a vocalist - major props for all of his classical training and continued hard work! Recommended for fans and the curious only. 🎸p.s. have YouTube/your CDs at hand, you'll want them! 🤘🏼🤘🏼 (edited) 2y
ErickaS_Flyleafunfurled I saw him play Jesus in "Jesus Christ Superstar" ? He was really good - I just couldnt let go of the fact that one of my former hair band loves was Jesus ? 2y
LauraBrook @ErickaS_Flyleafunfurled Wow, I wondered what he'd be like as Jesus in the show. But yeah, super weird to see him play that character. (Plus, I always thought his lips looked fake - they've been like that his whole life! 👄) 2y

8little_paws Oh God I hope there's a chapter on Gilmore Girls 3y
Krisjericho I love him! I didn't know this existed! 3y
ocdIrene @8little_paws I know. One chapter minimum! Farther down in the summary, it mentions how the book includes pictures from his personal collection, so I'm hoping for some photos from the set. 3y
ocdIrene @Krisjericho Me either! Love my sis! 431 pages that I think will fly by. 3y
