About Skid Row
Rock band Skid Row was formed
in 1986 by bassist Rachel Bolan, guitarist Dave Sabo, guitarist Scotti Hill, drummer Rob Affuso, and lead singer Sebastian
Bach. After playing the nightclub circuit, Bon Jovi, who was friends with Dave Sabo, helped the band get signed with Atlantic
Records. They were soon signed and hit the studio to begin working on their debut album. Their self-titled debut album was
a phenomenal success, launching them to immediate stardom and fame. Bolstered by hit singles like "18 and Life," "Youth Gone
Wild," and "I Remember You," the album went five times platinum. Trailing on their successful debut, Skid Row returned to
the studio and began working on their next album, "Slave to the Grind," which was released in 1991. The album entered the
charts at the number 1 position, and was enormously successful. "Slave to the Grind" produced the hits "Monkey Business,"
"Slave to the Grind," "Wasted Time," and "In a Darkened Room." Skid Row's next album, "Subhuman Race," followed in 1995. It
charted in the top 40 and eventually went gold. The album produced a few singles, including "Into Another," "Breakin' Down,"
and "My Enemy."
Now this iconic rock band from the 90s is back on tour and you don't want to miss them when they come
