The original frontman for hair metal hitmakers Skid Row, singer Sebastian Bach was born Sebastian Bierk in the Bahamas on April 3, 1968. A veteran of short-lived, little-known bands including Herrenvolk, Madame X, V05, and Kid Wikkid, he was living in Canada when in 1987 he received a demo tape from an unknown New Jersey band in search of a lead singer; the group was Skid Row, formed a year earlier by ex-Bon Jovi guitarist Dave "The Snake" Sabo. Signing to Atlantic, Skid Row issued its self-titled debut album in 1989; an opening slot on Bon Jovi's U.S. tour, combined with heavy MTV airplay of the video "Youth Gone Wild," launched the band to stardom, and the singles "18 and Life" and "I Remember You" both reached the Top Ten. Bach, with his wildman persona and photogenic looks, quickly emerged as the focus of fan and media attention.
Post Skid Row in 1995, Bach briefly formed a band with ex-Breeder Kelley Deal before going solo in 1997. The album Bring 'Em Bach Alive arrived two years later, followed by a live DVD (Forever Wild) in 2004 and Angel Down in 2007. Bach also turned his hand to musical theater; he appeared in Broadway productions of Jekyll & Hyde, The Rocky Horror Show, and Jesus Christ Superstar. After the release of his 2009 EP, Finding My Way, Bach kept busy touring, and went out on the road opening for Guns N' Roses on their Chinese Democracy tour after repairing his friendship with Axl Rose. He also showed his goofy side by voicing Prince Triton in SpongeBob SquarePants. The release of his fourth solo album, Kicking & Screaming, went ahead as planned a month later. In 2013, after the release of the live disc Abachalypse Now, Bach, then living in L.A., went back into the studio with producer Bob Marlette to record his fifth album. The resultant effort, Give 'Em Hell, featured Marilyn Manson guitarist John 5 and Guns N' Roses bassist Duff McKagan in Bach's band, and also had a cameo from guitarist Steve Stevens. The album appeared in the spring of 2014. Bach currently tours with his solo band and is preparing to work on another solo album.
