Talking about Skid Row, I am still remember when we didn't give a damn about their performance as the opening band for Bon Jovi New Jersey tour in Reunion Arena, Dallas Texas in 1989. At that time, we just didn't know about this band at all. So you just imagine, with Snake Sabo, Scottie Hill and Sebastian Bach on stage and yet you did not bother to watch them. We were so eager to watch Bon Jovi at the time. So what we did were just lepaking at watched texas chicks during Skid Row performance. And few months later Skid Row debut album Youth Gone Wild exploded on the chart with the song likes Youth Gone Wild, 18 and Life and I Remember You. The video clips of Youth Gone Wild, and the other two songs mentioned were played on MTV over and over again. Man, what a regret. For me the guitar solo by Scottie Hill in I Remember You is among the best of all time. I did know how did he manage to get that kind of sound...just haunting and mesmerizing. Sebastian Bach's vocal was so high and awesome. Slave to the Grind is another strong album by them. Its really demonstrated song writing talent from Snake Sabo and good combination with SB. Wasted Time, In The Darkened Room, Monkey Business are among the wicked songs written in the album.
Understand, they paid the late Gary Moore about $50,000 to own the right to use the name Skid Row.
Come to think of it, it was really funny and felt really stupid at the same time. Hehe.
Wasted Time - Skid Row.

It was just strolling around at the famous guitar street in london @Danmark Street , Tottenham Court Road but somehow was stunned with this Jackson Warrior WRXMG Black Guitar and got involved hehe. This guitar reminds me of Stryper and Dave Munstaine.
