Skid Row is a band formed in 1986. The Jersey rockers were successful in the late 80’s and early 90’s having their first two albums “Skid Row” and “Slave to the Grind” certified multi-platinum. It was hit songs like “I Remember You”, “Youth Gone Wild” and “18 and Life” that did the trick. They have since sold over 20 million albums worldwide.
Skid Row’s formation during their most acclaimed period consisted of: Sebastian Bach (vocals) Rachel Bolan (bass), Dave “The Snake” Sabo (guitar), Scotti Hill (guitar) and Rob Affuso (drums). Their current line-up includes three members of that line-up, Hill, Bolan and Sabo, as well as Rob Hammersmith (drums) and Tony Harnell (vocals). One everlasting discussion among rock fans is the possible return of original vocalist Sebastian Bach to the band. To this day no serious indication towards that has been noticed from both sides.
Skid Row’s sound was more glam metal and hard rock in their early releases while shifting to heavy metal in later ones.
They have released five studio albums, three EPs and one compilation album. Studio discography:
