Music-7- Skid Row 

★The voice of Sebastian Bach, just amazing

I like the voice of Sebastian Bach so much when he was a member of Skid Row. I think his voice was just amazing. I feel like his voice was kind of metallic, solid, and clear like a crystal, and also so tough. Even now I listen to his voice as if he were a permanent teenager, because his voice seems so pure and also fragile, I feel like. The color of his voice changes freely like the seven colors of a rainbow, it seems dependent on the melody. I think it’s hard for vocalists to be expressive in hard-sounding metal or rock songs, because we have to try to also make our voices hard and strong in those songs.

★“Wasted Time”- his excellent shouting in this song, I often sing this song at karaoke, too.

I think he was one of the rare vocalists who could do it naturally. Especially, in the song “Wasted Time”. I think it’s an excellent song in which the good points of his voice were displayed. He shouted a lot, but not too much. What I mean is that his shouting was not too heavy for this song, and actually he could strongly promote the delicacy of this song as a ballad. It’s amazing. 

Because I respect his voice so much, I know I talk about him too eagerly, but it is what it is. I like this song so much, I often sing this song at karaoke, too.

When it comes to memorable Skid Row songs, I list the song “Quicksand Jesus”, too.

★ I think “Monkey Business” also represents Skid Row well. It really sounds like them.

Don’t you think sometimes bands come together by chance with the “one-and-only” members for them? I mean, time has passed now and Sebastian Bach is not in Skid Row anymore, so these songs can be never played exactly same way again. Not “once in a lifetime”, but “once in a music scene”. I’m really thankful for coming into contact with them at their best moment.
