Iconic rocker Sebastian Bach will soon add author to his list of talents. His forthcoming autobiography, ’18 and Life and Skid Row,’ is set for a January 19th, 2016 release. The book will be released by Dey Street Books (formerly It Books), an imprint of HarperCollins Publishers.
Update: Bach had this to say about the book description via his official Facebook account: “Hello, there are media reports today on the Internet about my book which will be coming out in January. Yes my book is coming out in January. But the story that is circulating today is not in any way the ‘Official’ description of my book. Stay tuned for a press release on the book. What you are reading today is something I have never read, and really not descriptive of the words in the book I have written. Thank you for your time,
Available through the Harper Collins press release, the synopsis in question read: ‘In this uncensored, unfiltered memoir, the musician and former front man for Skid Row tells the story of how a choir boy became a mega-successful hair metal god, rode the wave of fame in Heavy Metal’s heyday, and came out alive on the other side when glam rock went the way of the cassette tape and the Walkman.
Sebastian Bach is an iconic rock vocalist who has sold in excess of twenty million records worldwide. Best known for his powerful high vocal range and his flowing blonde locks, he’s been a stand out member of the metal music scene since he was fourteen. From first joining Kid Wikkid, Bach has rocked out with Skid Row, Madam X, The Last Hard Men, The Frogs, and Frameshift, and with famous friends such as Aerosmith, Bon Jovi, Soundgarden, Pantera, and Guns ’N Roses.
But eventually the party bus stopped and the rock star grew up. Yet the fun didn’t end. Bach established a successful solo career as an actor, musician, and singer, appearing on numerous television shows and on Broadway. In this no-holds-barred memoir—raw, powerful, wild, funny, and reflective—he charts his unconventional childhood, first in the Bahamas and then in his rise from small-town Canada to the world’s greatest concert stages to the Great White Way and beyond.
There’s the usual sex, drugs, parties, women, hair products, and headbanging rock ‘n’ roll, but there is also a lot more. Here is a rock star who can write, tell a great story, and has kept his career moving forward despite the changing musical landscape. Through it all, this talented artist remained devoted to his craft, and to having a damn good time.’
