9781504697095: 18 and Life on Skid Row

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.

18 and Life on Skid Row tells the story of a boy who spent his childhood moving from Freeport, Bahamas, to California and finally to Canada and who at the age of eight discovered the gift that would change his life. Throughout his career, Sebastian Bach has sold over twenty million records both as the lead singer of Skid Row and as a solo artist. He is particularly known for the hit singles ''I Remember You,'' ''Youth Gone Wild,'' & ''18 & Life,'' and the albums ''Skid Row'' and ''Slave to the Grind,'' which became the first ever hard rock album to debut at #1 on the Billboard 200 and landed him on the cover of Rolling Stone magazine. Bach then went on to become the first rock star to grace the Broadway stage, with starring roles in Jekyll & Hyde, Jesus Christ Superstar, and The Rocky Horror Show. He also appeared for seven seasons on the hit television show The Gilmore Girls.

In his memoir, Bach recounts lurid tales of excess and debauchery as he toured the world with Bon Jovi, Aerosmith, Motley Crue, Soundgarden, Pantera, Nine Inch Nails, and Guns 'N' Roses. 18 and Life on Skid Row is the story of hitting it big at a young age, and of a band that broke up in its prime. It is the story of a man who achieved his wildest dreams only to lose his family and then his home. It is a story of perseverance; of wine, women, and song; and of a man who has made his life on the road and always will. 18 and Life on Skid Row is not your ordinary rock memoir, because Sebastian Bach is not your ordinary rock star.

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!
