About this deal

Ronnie from Cincinnati, OhDont know how long these post have been up but it is now 11-17-07 and I remember when I first heard this song, I was sitting in the local state little shop of horros if you know what I mean. This cat who was up on A range for a manslaughter bit use to play this song on his guitar and was actually very good, he taught me how to play this song and thats how I got into guitar...who says you cant learn anything in prison.. In April 2015, Skid Row released a new version of the song with then-lead vocalist Tony Harnell. [4] [5] [6] Theme [ edit ] Catlin, Roger (December 2, 1999). "Bach: Put A Cork On Bottle Incident".

So where does this get interesting? Bach interacts with 1970s acts like Kiss and Aerosmith - and they had survived 1970s partying to come out on the other side with strict sobriety edicts. Bach blissfully walks in with drugs or alcohol and is summarily told to take off. Especially poignant was a scene in which Gene Simmons of Kiss (Bach's idol) expresses his disgust at Bach's drug fueled antics. Similarly, behind the scenes of life with Bon Jovi, with whom his band was intimately bound, are also worth the read. Vignettes of other bands including Guns N Roses, Pantera, etc. are interspersed throughout.

That tour, the New Jersey Syndicate tour, was huge, and earned Skid Row an instant fanbase. It got bumpy for the band though; their second album, Slave To The Grind, wasn't released until 1991, and it was hitless, with a harder edge and less pop appeal (it did go to #1 and sell over 2 million). They never again came close to the success of their first album.

Louis from Ky@Tayla Jade, this is far from that. Dave Sabo wrote the lyrics to this about his brother who was basically his father figure from 2-7 (father was not really part of his life since the age of 2), his brother went off to vietnam when he was 7 and returned at 9. He was never the same. The lyrics didnt exactly pan out so he came up with a similar story that folks could relate to, 18 and life. Thats a fact. He told his story about this in his interview. you can find it on youtube as a matter of fact. Jeffries, Neil (December 8, 2021). "Skid Row's Atlantic years: from wild youth to burst bubbles". Louder Sound. Willie from Scottsdale, AzJust to echo what's already been suggested, "18 and life to go" is somewhat metaphorical. The kid was 18 years old when he shot his friend. So on one level, he will spend a considerable amount of time in prison, dependent on good behavior, etc. . He also has the rest of his natural life to contemplate the thing he did to his friend. Sebastion did give us a few musician tidbits: Vocal training, recording, lyric writing, getting a good preformance. Stuff like that is priceless. Too bad you gotta sort through the bloated ego's to get to it. It's a fun read. Both the best and worst thing I can say about it is that it reads like someone telling you a bunch of really cool anecdotes. The downside is that as a result a lot of the fine detail gets left out. And as a hardcore Skid Row fan I want DETAIL.

The very first line of this book made me think…wow Sebastian Bach can write…and that thought soon ended as I kept listening to his story…If you're looking for a super well written autobiography than…this isn't the one for you. What you will get with this audiobook is Sebastian Bach getting up close and personal about his life. Sometimes his thoughts seem a bit jumbled and it even seems like he contradicts himself, maybe that’s the drugs confusing him…I don't know??? I feel this truly benefitted from Sebastian's narration, because I don't think anybody else could have told it better than him. They just couldn't have gotten the crazy right. His accent for Lars Ulrich is super hilarious. Overall, this book is highly entertaining, despite the confusion. This was told in a conversational and candid style, occasionally breaking the fourth wall by prefacing a sentence with "Dear reader" and sometimes apologizing for his behavior and justifying why he acted a certain way, which was a little jarring. He did seem to piss off a lot of people, and quite frankly, his abominable actions would piss me off, too. What I found most interesting were his friendships and working relationships with bands of the 80s such as Aerosmith, Bon Jovi, Guns 'n Roses, Motley Crue, and more, but unfortunately his drug use and occasional violent episodes caused a few riffs with various band members. Eventually he makes his way to the Broadway stage starring in Jekyll and Hyde and Jesus Christ, Superstar and included a little of the behind-the-scenes information. I'll be looking for old videos and Broadway performances on YouTube.

It's telling that the book opens with the famous incident of getting a bottle thrown at his head on stage. What there is no mention of is the politically and racially charged rant he was in the midst of when said bottle was thrown. So he kind of avoids taking much responsibility for stuff, apart from the odd fight he gets into. Bowar, Chad (April 15, 2015). "Skid Row Re-Record '18 and Life' With New Songer Tony Harnell".

Grönwall joined SKID ROW as the replacement for ZP Theart, who had been in the group for more than six years. Resty Mervin Ponio from Marikina City, PhilippinesFor me, 18 and life means that kids beyond 18 y.o wastes their life, sometimes killing their friends.

Kris from Wichita, Kswell aaron it isn't technically manslaughter. If it's ruled as "accidental" then it becomes a new ball game. but who cares this is a place to talk about songs on criminal law. if i wanna talk about court i'll go to Harvard Madhatter from HellSlave to the Grind isn't a hitless album. One big hit, iirc, is Monkey Business. Aaron from Orefield, PaYes just to let you know luke, the penalty for first degree manslaughter is 25 to life not 18...the kid was 18 when he shot his friend, thats why he's 18 and has life to go Maxx from Stonigton, Ctit got it's name because the kid who shot his friend was 18 and got a life sentenceRyan, Gavin (2011). Australia's Music Charts 1988–2010 (PDFed.). Mt Martha, Victoria, Australia: Moonlight Publishing. p.255. Bolan told Meltdown of Detroit's WRIF radio station about Grönwall's addition to SKID ROW: "Just the way he does things and his work ethic is one I've never seen other than the four of us that are already in the band. He just doesn't stop until he gets things absolutely right. Whether it's his version, what he thinks is right, or what we think is right, he works hard — he works hard. And you can see why he had the success he did overseas because he's a really, really hard-working singer that takes care of his instrument and that takes pride in his craft." Dave Sabo was part of Bon Jovi's original lineup and was childhood friends with Jon Bon Jovi. In 1984, Richie Sambora ended up taking his place in the band, which soon took off. Sabo formed Skid Row with Rachel Bolan in 1986; a year later they added the brash young Canadian singer Sebastian Bach, who was 20 years old when the Skid Row album was released in 1988. Jon Bon Jovi helped the band get a record deal; they shared the same manager, and Skid Row inked a publishing deal with the company owned by Jon and Richie, who now had a profit motive for seeing them succeed. For his yelling and gruff exterior and partying and fighting, he's a very sensitive (he mentions crying many times) and thoughtful person. I hesitate to say he's misunderstood, but he's deeper than people give him credit for.
