So, we already know that Sebastian Bach has ruled out any warm fuzzy reunions with his old bandmates in Skid Row, but what about the Brendan ‘Brush’ Shiels incarnation of Skid Row? In case you’re not familiar with Shiels, he’s the founding member of the 70’s Irish blues-rock band of the same moniker -- the band that guitarist Gary Moore got his start with?
Sebastian Bach will be warming up the stage for Guns N’ Roses three more times this year. He’ll join the band at their show in Phoenix, Ariz. as well as a two night run at The Joint at Hard Rock Hotel in Las Vegas. Bach also announced a handful of dates in New York City with Steve Stevens to kick off the new year.
The third annual Revolver Golden Gods Awards took place in downtown Los Angeles last April, but the magazine has only now released behind-the-scenes footage from the rehearsals for the big show. Former Skid Row throat Sebastian Bach performed his ex-band's classic anthem 'Youth Gone Wild' with those irreverent British blokes in Asking Alexandria at the event, and these clips show the singer and the band feeling each other out before the actual performance.
It’s another solid week for new rock releases on the Billboard 200 albums chart. ‘Chickenfoot III’, the latest from super group Chickenfoot debuted at No. 9 selling 42,000 copies. Their previously released self-titled album in 2009 rocked the charts at No. 4 with 52,000 units sold so the ‘Foot has some catching up to do. But with the combined star force of Sammy Hagar, Michael Anthony, Joe Satriani and Chad Smith, this release has some staying power.
Sebastian Bach is a survivor. Neither a recent divorce from his wife of 18 years; nor losing his New Jersey home to Hurricane Irene; nor being pursued by an angry deity on the cover of his latest solo album can deter the former Skid Row frontman from finding a way to persevere and turn his pain into kick-ass rock 'n' roll.
