Skid Row Tickets
Formed in 1986, Skid Row is an American heavy metal band that originally comes from Toms River, a town close to the Atlantic Ocean in New Jersey. The band enjoyed commercial success with a number of their albums that came out in the late 1980s and early 1990s, including their eponymous debut, first released in 1989. The band has been on several worldwide tours, notably supporting both Aerosmith and Bon Jovi as they have travelled around the globe. Skid Row was formed by David Sabo, often known by his nickname of 'Snake', and the bassist Rachel Bolan, whose real name is James Richard Southworth. Scotti Hill was soon recruited as the band's guitarist but the lineup has changed significantly since the early days.
As of 2017, the only original members still playing regularly with Skid Row were Sabo, Bolan and Hill. Departed members include the band's first main singer, Sebastian Bach, and Rob Affuso, the group's initial drummer. In January 2017, Skid Row recruited ZP Theart as their singer, a vocalist who up to that point was probably best known for his work with DragonForce, a power metal band that was based in London. Johnny Solinger provided vocals from 1999 to 2015 and recorded several albums with the group.
Skid Row's career milestones
The group's first album reached number six in the US albums charts, also performing well in New Zealand, Australia and the UK. The band came to British shores soon after its release, playing in London as well as the Milton Keynes Bowl. A single from the LP, “Youth Gone Wild” was played extensively on MTV at the time.
In 1991, Atlantic Records released Skid Row's second studio album, Slave to the Grind. It topped the album charts in the US and got to a high of number five in the UK. The multi-platinum selling record also spawned the single “Monkey Business”, which would become one of the band's best-known tracks.
More recently, the band released Revolutions Per Minute on SPV Records. Produced by Michael Wagener, it featured Solinger on lead vocals as well as a cover version called “Strength”, originally by the Alarm. Since then, the group has chosen to release album-quality material on EPs, with the idea that each constituent part makes up an entire LP when played together. In 2014, the members of Skid Row announced that they had re-recorded their track “18 and Life”, so that it could be made available in a new format for digital download.
