None of that shit really matters at all. I think it’s way better than “I Remember You” and more on par with “In A Darkened Room” as one of the best songs you’ve ever recorded. That’s IT. It was a single from their third album, Subhuman Race. SB:  Especially when it’s Diamond David Lee Roth!! SB:  Thank you. The Temptations sang backup on "Super Freak" by Rick James. Skid Row is an American heavy metal band, formed in 1986 in Toms River, New Jersey. He mentions them in the song when he says, "Temptations, sing!". Actually the entire song is quite is easy to understand, what took me sometime to comprehend is the phrase "Quicksand Jesus". The song was debuted publicly at the American Music Awards and was also played at the halftime show for Super Bowl XXXV in January 2001. It generated four singles: "Youth Gone Wild", "18 and Life", "I Remember You" and “Piece of Me”, all of which were accompanied by music videos and received heavy rotation on MTV.

A monthly update on our latest interviews, stories and added songs, Writer/s: DAVID MICHAEL SABO, RACHEL BOLAN SOUTHWORTH, SEBASTIEN PHILIP BJERK. He’s not doing your interview because he’s setting up Phil Anselmo’s interviews, that’s what he does for a living now. If there are zero original members then the show(s) should be cancelled IMO. This is the last Skid Row album with singer Sebastian Bach and drummer Rob Affuso, and the last one to be released on Atlantic. That Subhuman Race album sucked. The song was written by the members of the band and produced by Chad Kroeger and Rick Parashar. On August 18, 2012, the Foo Fighters performed "These Days" at Pukkelpop, as a tribute to the people who either died or were injured there a year earlier, due to a violent thunderstorm that raged over the festival grounds. It’s just frustrating to deal with promoters and radio guys and press or whatever who are only concerned with the whole nostalgia  SKID ROW thing and the 80s and 70s and now the 90s. I don’t care if you’re Paul McCartney or Neil Young or whoever, no matter how many great songs you’ve written it doesn’t mean you aren’t capable of writing something that is NOT GOOD. If I had taken everything personally in this business believe me John I would have quit in 1991 (laughs). "Wasted Time" is a song by Skid Row. I can’t believe no one reported on it like you might have been right or honorable or at least  getting bent out of shape and defending her or your kids reputations out of love. Angel Down debuted at 190 on the Billboard charts which was very disappointing but then KICKING AND SCREAMING debuted at number 68 which was like “Ok, I can deal with that because if I keep working and take another jump like that on the next record I would be up in the top 20 which would be incredible”. They should have waited a few more years. LRI:  Man, you’re gonna inspire this slug writer to go run around the block. It’s hard for me to listen to because it’s such an emotional song. I relate it to Trapt's song "Still Frame". Solinger and Bolan never respond and seemingly never do press. It’s got this beautiful, beautiful melody over this heavy RUSH like riff. The band promoted Skid Row mainly as an opening act on worldwide tours by Bon Jovi and Aerosmith in 1989–1990. It was their third single released from their second album, Slave to the Grind. Your band back then was also a good one and you created some really good material with Jimmy Flemmion of  Milwaukee’s own…The Frogs. "Wasted Time" was the biggest hit, and it stalled at #88. (laughs). The ones that play rock music only play rock music from 20 years ago. A naturally artistic and hyperactive kid grew into a superstar with all the stage presence of Diamond Dave and a voice as sweet as Robin Zander or as powerful as Rob Halford depending on the riff he sings over.

Then to play new music on the classic channels is considered “too progressive” so the whole situation is totally fucked up. The song Quicksand Jesus is such a very deep beautiful song by Skid Row. SB:  My family and particularly my dad definitely instilled that in  me. If you tune into a channel like “Hair Nation” on Sirius they will play one of those three songs every hour on the hour, you can literally hear those songs played on radio 20 times a day but it’s the same fucking songs over and over and I just don’t understand.

LRI:  I’m not going to ask you about recording “Wasted Time” or “Big Guns”  but I want to clear up a misconception which is amazingly still reported as fact all these years later and that’s the fact that some people still say you LEFT SKID ROW. Your personality is ultimately still the same hyper kid we all know but now you’re surrounded by youth now with your kids, your girlfriend and your guitarist. Had I knew it back in 91, I would have loved that fact even more 2 of my top 5 bands of all time, wrapped together by more than just great music.. Gwen Stefani wrote "Just a Girl" as a message to her overprotective father. They are so scared to take a chance that they will just play “I Remember You” until your fuckin ears bleed. He’s great and all I know is that this is the first album I listen to around the house, on the plane, working out, basically EVERYWHERE. KICKING AND SCREAMING features your writing throughout but you’re not afraid to listen to another person’s idea if it’s a good one. Nobody else was even in the studio, it was just us three. Why dont Bach go sing for Adler's appetite. It’s fuckin cold, I didn’t wanna go outside and I would get out of shape during the winters but now that I’m out in California it’s so much easier and there’s just no excuses.

The song also charted at number 25 on the UK Singles chart, it was also the first Poison single and music video to feature lead guitarist Richie Kotzen. This is the last single Skid Row released with Sebastian Bach. He’s not writing new records and filming videos and going on big tours and stuff.
