Hailing from New Jersey, USA, Skid Row were formed in late
1986 by Dave The Snake Sabo (guitar) and Rachel Bolan
(bass). Sebastian Bach (b. 3 April 1968; vocals), Scotti Hill (guitar)
and Rob Affuso (drums) were soon added and the line-up was
complete. Influenced by Kiss, Bon Jovi, Sex Pistols, Ratt and
Motley Crue, the band's rise to fame has been remarkably rapid.
The break came when they were picked up by Bon Jovi's management
and offered the support slot on their US stadium tour of 1989.
Bach's wild and provocative stage antics established the band's
infamous live reputation. Signed to Atlantic Records, they
released their self-titled debut album to widespread critical
acclaim the same year. It peaked at number 6 on the Billboard
album chart and spawned two US Top 10 singles with 18 And Life
and I Remember You. SLAVE TO THE GRIND surpassed all expectations
and saw the band go from strength to strength. Their commercial
hard-rock approach had been transformed into an abrasive and
uncompromising barrage of metallic rock n roll,
delivered with punk-like arrogance.
