Musical Career

In 1987, Dave Sabo, the guitarist of the band 'Skid Row', recommended Sebastian Bach as their new vocalist after hearing him sing in Toronto. Sebastian's exceptional vocal abilities led to his selection as the lead singer of 'Skid Row'. The band achieved significant commercial success, reaching the top of the charts and gaining a dedicated fan base. However, in 1996, Sebastian left or was fired from the band due to his scandalous behavior and his desire for 'Skid Row' to open for 'KISS' as their supporting act.

Life Beyond 'Skid Row'

After leaving 'Skid Row', Sebastian Bach formed his own band called 'The Last Hard Men'. Their self-titled album did not achieve much success and was mainly distributed through mail orders. In the early 2000s, Sebastian transitioned to Broadway, where he had a successful run in the production of 'Jekyll & Hyde'. In May 2006, he participated in the reality show 'SuperGroup' and almost got eliminated due to his drinking problem.

Throughout his career, Sebastian Bach has maintained friendships with members of iconic bands such as 'Guns N' Roses' and 'Metallica', despite the animosity between the members of those groups. He has faced controversies and criticism for his actions, such as wearing a controversial shirt on stage and dealing with his public image. Despite these challenges, Sebastian Bach remains a respected figure in the rock music industry.
