Skid Row

Skid Row is an American heavy metal band, formed in 1986 in Toms River, New Jersey. They were very successful in the late 1980s and early 1990s, with their first two albums certified multi-platinum. During this period, the band consisted of Sebastian Bach (vocals), Dave "The Snake" Sabo (guitar), Scotti Hill (guitar), Rachel Bolan (bass) and Rob Affuso (drums). As of 2010, the band consists of Sabo, Hill, Bolan, Johnny Solinger (vocals), and Rob Hammersmith (drums). The band has sold 20 million albums worldwide.

To date, Skid Row has released five full-length albums, 3 EPs, a compilation album, and a live album. They became popular with their first two albums, Skid Row and Slave to the Grind. Their 1995 follow-up, Subhuman Race was also critically acclaimed. Skid Row's first two albums with Solinger, Thickskin and Revolutions Per Minute, came out in 2003 and 2006 respectively. In 2014, Skid Row headlined the largest show of their career at the Polish Woodstock. Attendance was over 500,000.


Skid Row were formed in 1986 by Sabo and Bolan in New Jersey. They released their self-titled debut, Slave To The Grind and Subhuman Race before this lineup collapsed, mainly due to Bach's antics and bad attitude - an example being the "Bottle Incident" where Bach was arrested and tried after jumping into the crowd at a Massachusetts show (where Skid Row were opening for Aerosmith) and attacked a fan he claimed had thrown a bottle at him, and injured other punters in the process. He is also infamous for wearing a T-shirt with the anti-gay slogan "AIDS KILLS FAGS DEAD" in a photo shoot, which he joked about then apologized for. The band went its separate ways in 1995, and all members except Sebastian briefly played in a band called Ozone Monday.
In the late 1990s, Skid Row reformed with a new singer (Johnny Solinger) and a new drummer (Phil Varone), and have toured every summer since and released a new album in 2003. Bach went on to do some solo stuff, and was also in a production of Jesus Christ Superstar.
