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.
In his memoir, Bach recounts lurid tales of excess and debauchery as he toured the world with Bon Jovi, Aerosmith, Motley Crue, Soundgarden, Pantera, Nine Inch Nails and Guns N’ Roses. Filled with backstage photos from his own personal collection, 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 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.

A great read; read it in a day! Very well written autobiography in that Sebastian Bach tells the reader about his life in a very candid way; admitting to any wrongdoing in his life without excuses that many other celebrities seem to do in theirs. Funny in some parts, depressing in others, an honest look at the rock industry in the 80s/ early 90s.
I really enjoyed this book. The writing flowed well and I like that he shared his growing up and lifetime love of music, the influence of his parents, as well as the "tell some" of the raunchy touring stories. I couldn't put it down and ended up reading it all in one night. He was everything he seems, Rock Star, funny, reflective and his zest for life comes through. It left me wanting more. Definitely worth the read.
