FROM SKID ROW TO BROADWAY,
FROM THE GUTTERS OF NEW JERSEY TO SAVILE ROW,
HEREIN LIES THE TALE OF THE FIRST THIRTY YEARS OF BACH ’N’ ROLL, MOTHERTRUCKERS!!!!!!
Sebastian Bach is the epitome of a rock ’n’ roll front man. Loud, boisterous, sometimes self-destructive, and constantly creative, he was the electrifying, iconic lead singer of Skid Row the band whose platinum-selling songs “18 and Life,” “Youth Gone Wild,” and “I Remember You,” took the world by storm, and were MTV mainstays. But Bach is no ordinary rock star.
In his whip-smart, exhilarating, and brutally honest memoir, Bach tells his story of Skid Row: the parties, drugs, and international tours with Mötley Crüe, Aerosmith, Metallica, Slayer, and Guns N’ Roses, as well as the one-of-a-kind voice that carried him through Skid Row’s heyday and their eventual breakup. With typical Sebastian-esque scream and bravado, he reflects on the cost of fame, the price of creativity, and what it means to go from rock hopeful to rock star.
From his birth in the Bahamas to his teenage years in Canada to the music that rocks his life today, 18 and Life on Skid Row is the ultimate story of Sebastian Bach and his devotion to the music he loves.

"In the hedonistic new memoir 18 and Life on Skid Row, Sebastian Bach is brutally frank in his description of life on the road and exploits...Written in a funny, everyman style, 18 and Life finds Bach as one of rock's most affable frontmen." -- Rolling Stone "The soulfulness of Sebastian Bach's new memoir caught me off-guard....The book's personal stories are compelling...they're what make 18 and Life on Skid Row a captivating read." -- LA Weekly "[a] ribald and freewheeling memoir...often a delightfully trashy and salacious read. The overall impression one gets of Bach is of an outgoing and genial person...it works because of Bach's puppyish enthusiasm-for music, yes, but also for booze, for drugs, and for sex in unusual places. Rock it up!" -- AV Club "a wild ride of a memoir" -- The Houston Press "the rock book that's going to be hard to beat" -- Las Vegas Weekly "give the gift of Baz this holiday season and get the Skid Row scoop via one of rock's greatest frontmen." -- Vanyaland
