Snake Sabo’s career begins in 1986 when he and bassist Rachel Bolan started a little band from New Jersey called Skid Row. A few years later they had sold millions of records and were true rock stars. Their second album Slave to the Grind won over metal heads world wide including, as you’ll hear Snake explain, the members of Slayer. After that album though metal went on life support and their sub-par record Subhuman Race didn’t help. Before the decade was over the band had split with singer Sebastian Bach. In 1999 they re-grouped with current singer Johnny Solinger. They may not be as big as they once were but they are and always will be Skid Row.

So on a hot August night at a Casino ballroom not to far from my house, myself and a couple of friends went and saw Cinderella and Sebastian Bach. Of course I weaseled my way backstage to talk to Bach. Here is the audio version of that conversation.
