Audio Book Summary

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.

    Yes! So I have been listening to books by musicians and actors/actresses for a while now. I have a second great narrator! Sebastian does an excellent read! I have found all I have listened to interesting and fun, but when you have a fun, upbeat, funny, energetic and entertaining narrator, holy shit!, hang on!!! I will mention my other best narrator, not to take away from this, but to suggest another great narrator to listen to. Sammy Hagar is a upbeat and energetic Listen too!

    This book is hilarious, Sebastian is the ultimate "Man Child" of Rock 'n Roll. I got the Audiobook as it was recommended, and it is the best way to experience this book. Read by the man himself, you quickly pick up on his sense of humor and love for heavy metal. Seb has a wee bit of an ego, but what rock star doesn't, the problem is his ego gets him into a lot of trouble. If you are a feminist, don't get this book :) If you are offended easily, don't get this book. If you hate toilet humor, don't get this book. If you can't stand heavy metal, don't get this book. I loved it!

    It was a good book but just too long. If he just cut out half the stories about getting sh!t faced it would have been better. Funny thing is that I'm sure he already cut out most of them but it was still too many. Sebastian did a really good job narrating the book and I especially enjoyed the audio bonuses!
