Out of the gutters of 1980s ROCK ’n’ ROLL, Skid Row was born

Sebastian Bach is the epitome of a front man. Loud, boisterous, self-destructive, and creatively awash, he was the glam-haired and electrifying singer of Skid Row, which took the world by storm with their platinum-selling songs “18 and Life,” “Youth Gone Wild,” and “I Remember You,” and were strongly instrumental in uniting the vestiges of glam metal with the onslaught of ’90s grunge.

In his restless, exhilarating memoir, Bach dishes on everything Skid Row: the parties, drugs, and international tours with Mötley Crüe, Aerosmith, KISS, and Guns N’ Roses, as well as the creative juices that carried him through Skid Row’s heyday and kept him successful after they broke up. With typical Sebastian-esque scream and bravado, 18 and Life on Skid Row reflects on the cost of fame, the price of creativity, and what it means to go from rock hopeful to rock star—with the attitude to match!

From his birth in the Bahamas to his teenage years in Canada to the formation of Skid Row and headlining tours for thousands of ravenous fans, this is the ultimate story of Skid Row and the genius behind the music.

 Let the rock begin.

From the Back Cover:

Sebastian Bach is the epitome of a front man. Loud, boisterous, handsome, incredibly talented, he was the electrifying singer of Skid Row, which took the world by storm with their platinum-selling songs “18 and Life,” “Youth Gone Wild,” and “I Remember You,” and were MTV mainstays, touring the world with their peers in the heady days when hard rock ruled radio and adorned the cover of rock magazines. In his exhilarating, whip-smart, and brutally honest memoir, Bach tells his story of Skid Row: the parties, drugs, and international tours with Mötley Crüe, Aerosmith, Bon Jovi, Pantera, Metallica, Slayer, Guns N’ Roses, as well as the singular voice that carried him through Skid Row’s heyday and kept him successful after they broke up. With typical Sebastian-esque scream and bravado, 18 and Life on Skid Row reflects on the cost of fame, the price of creativity, and what it means to go from rock hopeful to rock star—with the attitude to match!
