Guilty Pleasures – Skid Row

UPDATE:  I got some really odd comments on this post and I’m really not sure if they are real.  Check out Epic Spam or Some Guys who are Really into 80s Hair Bands.

Last week’s Guilty Pleasure was a shout-out to our school’s production of Little Shop of Horrors which I had the great honor to be a part of as music director. From all accounts, it was a rocking good time – best production in years and better than many high school shows. For my part, I didn’t fuck up. At least not too noticeably.

Let’s do some math – The song I featured last week was one of the opening ensemble numbers – “Skid Row”. The song mentions the words “Skid Row” about 20 times and it was played at least twelve times in the last week, plus about 20 other times throught all the rehearsals. Add to that the number of times I went through the song in my head and how often we listened to the CD. I’m guessing the words “Skid Row” went through my head 58,394 times in the past few months. (Hey, us MBAs know all about that math shit.)

So, put yourself in my shoes – you’re a connoisseur of bad music, who went to high school and college in the 1980s, and you hear those words over and over again. What do you think comes to mind and stays there?

Yep, it’s time for another 80s hairband Guilty Pleasure. (eil.com)

And Skid Row had all the makings of a bad 80s hair band:

  • Long frizzy hair – check
  • Black leather and/or spandex – check
  • High-pitched lead singer – check
  • Bandmember with tough-sounding nickname – check (Dave “The Snake” Sabo)
  • SAPPY-ASSED BALLAD WITH HEAVY GUITARS – CHECK!

I have to admit that lead singer Sebastian Bach is kind of cool and he’s kept pretty busy after the band’s initial fame. In addition to the obvious solo projects and reality TV shows, he also found time for critically-acclaimed lead role perfomances on Broadway – Jekyll and Hyde, Rocky Horror, and Jesus Christ Superstar. Not bad, not bad at all. My favorite project of his was the role of Gil, the guitarist for Lane’s band in one of my all-time favorite shows – Gilmore Girls.

Oh God. I can’t believe I just admitted that. Time to quit while I’m behind…

    Did you know Skid Row Lead singer Sebastian Bach did infact have a delightful first wife called Nymphaea Kymille,Bach married her the same hour they met in 1986,he intended to have the record company pay for a wedding party after a few months,yet his bride made Sebastian withold the information of their marriage from the public,fearing female fans would not buy as many records for Skid Row sales.The hidden bride also allowed her heavy metal vocal screams on Skid Rows second debut Slave to the Grind.Atlantic records boss Armhet Ertegan was fond of Kymille and took several photographs of her,also he gave her a Moet et Chandon 1986 vintage champagne within a vintage Alphonse Mucha tin to commemorate Sebastian and Nymphaea kymille,as this was the exact year they married.

    Yes sireee,that Bach dudes some muthafucker,lot of musicians close to Bach verify unless told to conceal.I heared Bach and Nymphaea kymille were like seperated and she was there not only when he was knifed hence his stomach wounds but also when he tried to commit suicide over her,and then she actually stiched up the wrists herself for him.Whoa!surely those two have gotta be Texas chain saw afficionardos.Now Bach likes eating baked salmon in resteraunts just cos her murdered mom,Bachs former mom in law used to coôk this with mange tout,even when they say they lost their fortune,though now we heared it was hidden.We know Bach and Pizza,Burger King,and Pepsi was him.We also heared Bach and Kymilles favourite shows were Rossanne Barr ,Dallas,Dynasty.Now what do you think,its agréed that Bach and Nymphaea Kymille were from the Stix,straight outta Rob Zombie films.ACE HIGH on marujana.

    That aint all Bach and Nymphaea kymille,yes she was cute sort of ballerina hôoker style,anyway they were fucking straight out of Texas Chain Saw,once this secret legal wife was there when Bach got stabbed about ten times hence his stomach scar,all this was hidden from the fans,then even more bizzare Bach slits his wrists over an argument with her leaving or not loving him enough or something and before the paramedics are called she sews up both wrists and he places a cloth which Bach calls his birdcage cloth over his head.The two of them both like The Rossanne Barr show,Dallas,Dynasty and before Bach copied Nymphaeas murdered moms baked salmon dished,Bach was well known for his daily diet of burger kings or mcdonalds.Bach said they were known as the odd couple as he fought about 6 fights over her and she would often just vanish,mostly as Sandra alais Maria had started to take over her New Jersey lincroft home.

    The RIKKI LAKE SHOW /Legalise Pot had Sebastian Bach on the show.Sandra alias Maria appeared but little known fact was Bachs real wife Nymphaea kymille had spent the entire day with Bach and his manager Doc Mcgée.Bach wanted Kymille to go on the show,finally after méting Rikki Lake she agréed and signed the contracts for the show.
    Bach sent Kymille out for stiletto boots,and insisted she have her hair dyed from auburn,this is when the two start arguing in full view of the shows hair and makeup team.Bach then hit her after she mentioned to the hairdresser she liked a certain musician who was Bachs friend.Finally phone calls to the other Maria and she did the show instead no doubt also collecting the salary for the signed show contract. Kymille walked out after Bach was violent and the show had a replacment known as Maria.
    FACT.

    In that show of Ricki Lake Sebastian sait that he has a SON OF 6 YERS OLD., and Son Paris was born in 1989. So the show should be from 1995..is that correct?

    So I can’t get it !!!!.

    Was Sebastian still in contact with Lavina Nymphaea at that time ?..even after married Maria in 1992?..and Maria knew that?

    And what happened with Bret Micheals?..Is he the musician whom Lavina liked?
    When did they start dating and secretly and illegally married?.

    And when did she secretly and illegally married Steven Tyler ?

    Also rumours out there that she has a son with Joe Perry…is it true?

    I have told Lavina and someone also told Bas about this site.It is true,they never actually divorced,Bach cited hér with Abandonment and Adultery then hé went crazy after Steven Tyler tried to marry hér,who was jelous of Joë Perry because of 2kids.Solution Aerosmith style was to forcibly seperate Sébastian from lavina,by finding another few girls lavina knew to prétend to be hér and bribe,force/blackmail Sébastian to go along with this.Bach was too afraid not to but his heart belongs to lavina,who ironically hé claims to love évén more.Bach wanted lavina to be filmed in Bachapocalypse dvd,but we heared she was unable to attend-personally.

    Sebastian Bach has never yet divorced incredibly beautiful Nymphaea Lavina, who was a monarch Beta/black widow sex-slave.Worth an absolute Fortune,yet doesn’t want to control the money that the musicians forced Bach and Berenyi to lift using Extremely Harsh techniques.Seperating,rapes.
