Sebastian Bach Autobiography Cover Revealed, Release Date Announced
Earlier this year, we reported that Sebastian Bach was working on his autobiography, a book titled 18 and Life on Skid Row. At the time, the disc was targeted for a January release, but publishers HarperCollins have now revealed that the book will arrive on April 12 via their Dey Street Books imprint.
The publisher also released the autobiography cover art to Billboard, which can be seen at the bottom of this post. The book spans 288 pages in total, following Bach from his childhood in the Bahamas, California and Canada to becoming a musician and finding fame.
The HarperCollins description for the book reads as follows:
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 Top 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 Picture 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. Filled with backstage photos from his own personal collection, 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 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.
So mark it down -- April 12, 2016 -- the new Sebastian Bach autobiography 18 and Life on Skid Row is arriving, and keep up to date here with pre-order information.
