Description

18 and Life on Skid Row tells the story of a boy who spent his childhood moving from Freeport, Bahamas, to California and finally to Canada and who, at the age of eight, discovered the gift that would change his life.

Throughout his career Sebastian Bach has sold over 20 million records both as the lead singer of Skid Row and as a solo artist. He is particularly known for the hit singles "I Remember You", "Youth Gone Wild", and "18 & Life" and the albums Skid Row and Slave to the Grind, which became the first ever hard rock album to debut at number one on the Billboard Top 200 and landed him on the cover of Rolling Stone magazine. Bach then went on to become the first rock star to grace the Broadway stage, with starring roles in Jekyll & Hyde, Jesus Christ Superstar, and The Rocky Horror Picture Show. He also appeared for seven seasons on the hit television show Gilmore Girls.

In his memoir Bach recounts lurid tales of excess and debauchery as he toured the world with Bon Jovi, Aerosmith, Mötley Crüe, Soundgarden, Pantera, Nine Inch Nails, and Guns N' Roses. 18 and Life on Skid Row is the story of hitting it big at a young age and of a band that broke up in its prime. It is the story of a man who achieved his wildest dreams, only to lose his family and then his home. It is a story of perseverance; of wine, women, and song; and of a man who has made his life on the road and always will. 18 and Life on Skid Row is not your ordinary rock memoir, because Sebastian Bach is not your ordinary rock star.

Everything I hoped it would be!

I thoroughly enjoyed listening to Sebastian narrate his own book. It always makes autobiographies much more interesting when the actual author reads his or her own book. Now I can't wait to buy his book!

this book will not disappoint .

this book immediately grabs your attention , the way Sebastian narrates the book kept a smile on my face the entirety of the listen as he seems so happy recounting His Glory Days and even the days he enjoys now. there are many great stories here, some that will make you laugh out loud and some that will make you misty-eyed. Amazing Stories include encounters with Metallica, Pantera, Guns N Roses, Motley Crue and many others. he has indeed had an amazing career. I highly recommend this book I wish I could forget it so I can read it again.

Made My Ride To Work Rock!!!

I have a pretty long commute to and from work, and I couldn't wait to get in the car and listen to more of this book! Sebastian Bach is a talented rock star who has lived a life that has been anything but ordinary compared to the lives of us average peeps...but he is extremely down-to-earth, relatable, and funny. When he laughs during his narration, YOU laugh right along with him. He is a fantastic narrator, and I enjoyed listening to him tell all his stories of life, the music business, and crazy behind-the-scenes moments that make rock star bios so awesome. I have listened to quite a few autobiographies lately (actors, comedians, musicians) and Sebastian's is definitely one of my favorites. Sebastian's love of music is clear in this book, and if you are a big music fan like I am, you will truly enjoy his story!

Loved How Sebastian Told His Story

What did you love best about 18 and Life on Skid Row?

How Sebastian tells his story. I've listened to a lot of bios and this one is one of a kind. You hear everything when he is telling you his story. He laughs, makes comments and sound effects.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Of course Sebastian

Which scene was your favorite?

The start and middle. I grew up listening to Skid Row and all of the bands that he was talking about. He tells the stories, the real stories.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I just wanted everyone else to hear him. Hear how he tells his story. I'm so happy I didn't read it and I listened to it.

Any additional comments?

This is a truly one of a kind book. I would recommend it to everyone. It's hard to describe the stories and storytelling but if you listen to this book you won't regret it!

Bach is kind of a dick

Struggled to finish. Bach has an amazing voice and cares about his craft. But Bach doesn't seem like a good human.

Really good in spots

A couple of very raw, genuine moments. I enjoyed the story of his youth and younger years. I also enjoyed the partying with other musicians stories while in Skid Row. A weird random sex story that’s out of the blue was odd. Almost just to brag. Never spoke about the nature of his relationship with his wife as to why/ how he hooked up with so many women with no issues. Holes in the break up of Skid Row. Why did he have his own bus? He had to know something was up. Why do the other band members hate him so much? His divorce, which if he didn’t want to talk about just don’t mention it. But he did with no details as to why things broke down or why he felt he lost his kids. The book was really good and honest in spots. But there were obvious questions that would come to mind as I read/listened and they never got resolved.

Consistently Entertaining

This was a real treat coming from a genuine fan. Lots of wild stories, glad I got to hear it, lots of audio only bonuses. Read with great character and energy by Sebastian which is why I wanted the audio not the hardcopy.

Super Biografie

Sebastian Bach erzählt über seine Beginne mit Musik, seine ersten Erinnerungen als Kind und allgemein sein gesamtes Leben von Anfang bis Ende, sehr viel persönliches und auch viel über andere Musiker, welche mit ihm Zeit verbracht haben und was diese so getan haben, was sehr interessant ist, da vieles über Andere nicht in Interviews zu hören ist, sondern wirklich nur hier. Es ist etwas durcheinander, da er manchmal Zeitsprünge beim erzählen macht, aber dennoch sehr gut erzählt und vor allem echt witzig! ich bin begeistert und nachdem ich durch mit dem Hörbuch war hat es sich etwas angefühlt als hätte ich selbst so viel erlebt. Es ist einfach eine super Biografie über einen Wahnsinns Künstler.
