A Photolog of Fame: Skid Row from Inception to Today
Skid Row is a popular American heavy metal band, which has its roots in Toms River, New Jersey. The band originally consisted of bassist Rachel Bolan, guitarists Dave Sabo and Scotti Hill, drummer Rob Affuso, and frontman Sebastian Bach. They achieved commercial success in the late 1980’s and early 1990’s, with their two albums Skid Row and Slave to the Grind, selling over 20 million albums by 1996.
Bach and Affuso left the group in 1999, with Johnny Solinger becoming frontman, and Phil Varone replacing Affuso. This proved to be a bad choice, as their next two albums Thickskin and Revolutions Per Minute didn’t quite live up to the expectations of the band’s previous albums.
After Solinger left, former TNT singer Tony Harnell replaced him, but he only lasted eight months. ZP Theart is now the vocalist of the band, and they are trying to replicate the success of Skid Row’s early years. Let’s take a look at the carousel of changes in the band, from inception to today.
