i was telling a buddy about my 50+ collection of Skid Row & Sebastian Bach cds. i gathered them up and took a quick picture to share. (i included a second shot in case anyone wanted to see closer, click it to zoom in )
this is just most the cds. i didnt grab the vinyl, cassettes, etc. although, that “Maple Metal” cassette features Sebastian’s pre-Skids band Kid Wikkid. I had him sign that when he was doing ‘Jekyll & Hyde’ on Broadway….great fucking memories. He was always the nicest dude.
it was fun growing up in a time when you had to hunt this stuff down at record shows, through pen pals, trades, random record stores on vacation… maybe only about 5% of my collection came from using the internet. someday i’ll catalog all this.
Skid Row are still my all-time favorite band and “Slave To The Grind” my #1 album, but i don’t collect anymore. I dont even bother with the bullshit version of “Skid Row” (who i call FAKE SKID ROW) anymore. Sebastian Bach however, I still have complete faith in and buy anything & everything he sings on. GREATEST VOICE OF ALL TIME.
