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 twenty 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, & 18 & Life, and the albums Skid Row and Slave To The Grind, which became the first ever hard rock album to debut at #1 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 The Gilmore Girls.



  • It was a real challenge to get through this one. Sebastian Bach's vocal prowess is undeniably impressive, and it's clear that he takes his music seriously. However, it's hard to ignore the fact that Bach doesn't exactly come off as a decent person.
  • This audiobook was really disappointing. This guy has a talent for ruining anything good that comes his way. Who would enjoy listening to this moron yell his way through a book? Definitely not me. It's such a shame that I wasted my hard-earned money on this. I can guarantee you that he won't be getting another penny from me.
  • There were some really authentic and unfiltered moments throughout the book. I particularly enjoyed reading about his early years and the experiences he had during his time with Skid Row, partying with fellow musicians. However, there was one strange and out-of-place story about random sexual encounters that seemed more like a bragging moment. I found it odd that he never delved into the nature of his relationship with his wife, especially considering his numerous affairs with other women. There were also some gaps in the narrative when it came to the breakup of Skid Row. It made me wonder why he had his own bus and if he had any inkling of what was happening. Another aspect that puzzled me was the intense animosity the other band members harbored towards him. Additionally, his divorce was briefly mentioned without any details about why it happened or why he felt he lost custody of his children. Overall, the book had its moments of honesty and was quite engaging. However, there were certain unanswered questions that lingered in my mind as I read or listened to it.
