Before performing the track, Bach said the following:
“You know, there’s been a lot of guys who’ve said they’re in the band Skid Row, and 99 percent of them are full of fucking shit. There’s five guys in the band Skid Row; everybody else is a fucking hack. This is the drummer from Skid Row, Rob Affuso. My name is Sebastian fucking Bach; I’m the singer on the fucking albums.”

Sebastian Bach has announced a special “evening with tour” which will feature him playing an acoustic set, followed by full electric show each night. Bach said the following:
“‘An Evening with Sebastian Bach’? No, that doesn’t mean we’re going to end up in the back of a police car. It means that for selected shows on the upcoming tour, we want to do something brand new. Let’s bring the music back to its purest form. We have been touring a lot in the last few years so it’s time to do something different. You’re going to get two sets for the price of one. We’re going to open up the show with some stripped-down tunes, reset the stage, and then come back with the ‘Big Guns.'”

In other news, Bach’s book “18 and Life on Skid Row” is now set to be released on June 28.
It has been revealed that Sebastian Bach’s autobiography 18 And Life On Skid Row on April 12. You can see the cover art, and a description of the book below.
HarperCollins offered the following description of the book:
18 And Life on Skid Row tells the story of a boy who spent his childhood moving from Freeport, Bahamas to California and finally to Canada and who at the age of eight discovered the gift that would change his life. Throughout his career, Sebastian Bach has sold over twenty million records both as the lead singer of Skid Row and as a solo artist. He is particularly known for the hit singles I Remember You, Youth Gone Wild, & 18 & Life, and the albums Skid Row and Slave To The Grind, which became the first ever hard rock album to debut at #1 on the Billboard Top 200 and landed him on the cover of Rolling Stone magazine. Bach then went on to become the first rock star to grace the Broadway stage, with starring roles in Jekyll & Hyde, Jesus Christ Superstar and The Rocky Horror Picture Show. He also appeared for seven seasons on the hit television show The Gilmore Girls.
In his memoir, Bach recounts lurid tales of excess and debauchery as he toured the world with Bon Jovi, Aerosmith, Motley Crue, Soundgarden, Pantera, Nine Inch Nails and Guns N’ Roses. Filled with backstage photos from his own personal collection, 18 And Life on Skid Row is the story of hitting it big at a young age, and of a band that broke up in its prime. It is the story of a man who achieved his wildest dreams, only to lose his family, and then his home. It is a story of perseverance, of wine, women and song and a man who has made his life on the road and always will. 18 And Life On Skid Row is not your ordinary rock memoir, because Sebastian Bach is not your ordinary rock star.
