R.I.P. SEBASTIAN BACH’S NEW JERSEY HOME (1990-2011)
We make fun of Sebastian Bach a lot here on the site, and we’re not about to stop doing that. But it ultimately comes from a place of love (read this) and we certainly never wish anyone physical harm or damage of any kind. So it’s with heavy hearts that we say we sympathize for Baz, who lost his New Jersey home of 21 years and a whole ton of personal belongings to flooding caused by Hurricane Irene this past weekend. Comments Bach, part of a full statement you can read here:
Skid Row master tapes, video and audio, concerts, master tapes from ‘Oh Say Can You Scream’, etc. Boxes and boxes of one-of-a-kind Skid Row memorabilia, from the first tour to our last, all stuff I collected on the road that no one else had. I had a library in the basement with every single magazine that had Skid Row on the cover. This library took up a big part of the basement. All of this is lost now.
We will salvage what we can, of course. But how I wish there was a reason to do a box set or something before Hurricane Irene hit. Nobody cared. Now it’s too late.
Oof. Not to mention the damage to the house and other personal property. Our thoughts are with you, duderino, even though Black Veil Brides and Asking Alexandria are your new bands of choice.
