Commented Bach: "For me to be the singer in Gene Simmons' first-EVER side project is amazing to me! Dreams come true, indeed.

See you soon Central and South America!! We are gonna rock the best of KISS, DEEP PURPLE, GUNS N' ROSES, SKID ROW and DEF LEPPARD! See you soon on tour!!!"

Would be cool if Duff, Matt and Gilby shared the stage for the GNR songs.

That looks cool.

Funny that they had to fill in Sebastian Bach's list with other people's hits so his one didn't seem lonely.  :lol:

Well, technically He has two hits on his set. :wink:  Youth Gone Wild came before I Remember You.

I wasn't really counting I Remember You.

Seriously though, this'd be really cool. Baz aside, I'd definitely check this out.

I don't remember "I Don't Remember You"  :lol:  I just know 18 and Life, and Youth Gone Wild.   Oh well, looks like Baz will finally get his dream of playing with VR lol maybe it will be an audition of sorts?

18 And Life is the only Skid Row song I ever liked. It'd be worth it just for the epic jams.

Quit being a Baz Hater! :lol:  He was really good  LIVE when he was younger. I know for a fact, they blew Bon Jovi off the stage when they toured together. :wink:  For the most part, the line-up is not interesting at all  IMAO.

Yes in '89. Very memorable. I saw Skid Row twice after that and their performance was not that great. :-(  Similar to what I  have experienced with Slipknot,  Slayer, Motley Crue, Megadeth, Metallica and so on and so forth. :lol:

Alot can happen in 21 years. :lol:  I just can't believe that he's still around.  :-\

Skid Row were probably badass back in the day.  I saw Sebastian open for GNR in 2006.  I got there halfway through their set, but it was still alright.   He gets into it, and I'm sure there are worse out there.  He IS high energy lol

"Rock N' Roll Allstars are saddened to annouce the cancellation of our performance at Metal Open Air Festival in Sao Luis, Brazil.
 
We regret not being able to attend. We are in South America and are ready to rock, but the circumstances are beyond our control: We were informed before flying to Brazil today that many other artists have pulled out of the event, as well as local security. We are very concerned for the safety of the fans and artists whom are already at the festival.

We are receiving confirmed reports from other bands and friends on the ground that the event is dangerous and a disaster. Please be safe, and we look forward to rocking for you in the future.
 
Rock on,
 
Rock N' Roll Allstars"
