Re: Skid Row anyone?!

Best band ever.

I love 'em

Check out the second half of the solo on youth gone wild, very shreddy sound!

B-side ourselves is an EP they did and well worth checking out in my opinion.

Seb Bach = greatest frontman ever.

I'm not sure about "greatest fromtman ever" but they were pretty good. I think the first album is my favourite.

I saw them live supporting Motely Crue on the Dr Feelgood tour and they rocked !!

Didn't Seb boot off with Jon Bon over a comment he made at a backstage party along the lines of "You'd be nothing if it weren't for me"?

To each their own....

But at the same time, I went watching them when I was about 12 (23 now) at the Manchester Apollo (and again 2 years ago at the Academy)

At the end of Youth Gone Wild, he climb up on the P.A. system, which looked about 1000 foot high when I was that age, and dove off screaming "YOUTH GONE WILLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLD!!!!!!!"

Well, it's as cheesy as you like now, but at the time I swung my little blonde mullet around in awe.

The new guy was good when I saw them at the Academy, just sorta acted like Seb, but just wasn't quite the genuine article, y'know?

Re: Skid Row anyone?!

Skid Row were/are great. Snake and Scottie are great players.

The first 2 CDs are awesome....

I wasn't big on "Subhuman Race" although the song "My Enemy" is awesome.

Great songs, great muso's, great singer = great band

Its a shame they were/are labled as a stupid "Hair band"....

Re: Skid Row anyone?!

Great band! I saw them live with Johnny, too. I don't care much for the new album, but he was really good with them, live.

Yeah, a lot of really good bands got that damn hairband label, simply because they had long hair. People are so stupid...

Re: Skid Row anyone?!

Great band but as with most of these bands, their lead guitar work isn't all that great. Not that it matters... their riffs kick butt.

Well, not everyone can be Michael Schenker, but I think they have some pretty darn cool solos.
