    Head-bangers and "party on doooood!" fans will love this memoir of heavy metal band, Skid Row. It's also interesting for readers who can't resist a good tell-all memoir that totally embraces the "sex, drugs, and rock and roll" lifestyle.This was told in a conversational and candid style, occasionall...

    More reviews (and no fluff) on the blog http://surrealtalvi.wordpress.com/ 18 and Life On Skid Row is not a deep book - there are no Keith Richards musings on life or rich observations on the artist as a rock star. Rather, what we have is a series of vignette remembrances told from the simple persp...

    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.So he skims over so much that I would lo...

    I have an inexplicable fondness for the 80's music scene. Bizarre, glitzy, in-your-face, sometimes vaudeville, and unabashedly unironic.As such, I am definitely a fan of Sebastian Bach. This book is exactly what you'd expect: a fun memoir from one of the glam metal scene's most colorful and larger-t...

    I guess it'd have been a much better book with the help of a ghostwriter. This is 100% Bazz's work anyway. Hence the three stars. It's genuine, alright....

    I was always a fan of the band Skid Row (with and without Bach as the singer), and this book is a great book about the life and travels of singer Sebastian Bach. The book talks about his time before the band singing in church choir, until he decided to become a singer after discovering the band Kiss...

    I was never a die hard heavy metal band fan. That being said, I was in love with Sebastian Bach, his voice and his looks, and when he was at the top, I was only something like 9-13 years old or so, maybe he was my first celebrity crush? Axl Rose too! I loved the two of them. Ballads were my thing, m...

    I really enjoyed Bach's story through about page 250ish when he was writing about his childhood and musical beginnings and the recklessness of youth. But from there nothing seems to evolve until maybe the very end. The rough writing got more difficult to read and odd structure and story changes bega...
