Excellent album, although my fave track is Eighteen and Life. I don't think they ever quite recaptured the quality of this album...

From: Sleazy Guy Date: October 9, 2001 at 20:02
This album is a Sleaze Glam classic! I Remember You is with no doubt the best Skid Row song (only a stupid wouldn't say that)! By the way... it's far from be a ballad (Skid Row doesn't have any ballad)!

From: Cherry Pie Date: October 27, 2001 at 8:03
Sleazy and all!!!And what about "18and Life" and the rest of songs from this album???? This music make my feel so in love in Skid Row!!! Yeah!!! I love all the fuckin' sleaze and glam!!!!!!

From: metal_man73 Date: October 31, 2001 at 17:50
I would not call this sleaze/glam.....it is more heavy rock to me. No matter what you call it, it kicks ass!!!"Eighteen and Life" was a classic the moment they recorded it!!!

From: Ann Date: November 9, 2001 at 11:46
SEBASTIAN BACH RULES!!! He has the best voice and can sing any octive from Eighteen and Life to the ballad I remember you. That is a really great album.

From: jetboy Date: January 19, 2002 at 17:29
Some good tunes like Eighteen and life and I remember you, but the rest of this album is too heavy to be classified as ''Glam'', i agree with metal_man73.

From: César Date: February 10, 2002 at 6:04
This is heavy-hard album,no hard rock, but is very very good all the songs.

Great album. The album tracks are a little weaker, but the singles kick serious ass. Youth Gone Wild remains one of the greatest anthems of rebellion.

From: TIM Date: April 20, 2002 at 3:46
One of the best glam albums ever! My favorites are Youth Gone Wild, 18 and Life, Piece of Me, I Remember You, and the guitar solo on Tornado. There are many bands who have stolen from these guys, but never equaled or beat it.

From: Nuno(Hollywood) Date: April 24, 2002 at 13:30
Could it be better!!!!The best singer!!! The best songs!!Youth Gone Wild is a sweet memory...I really wish we have more bands like they were....SKID ROW was the best...N' Solinger can kiss my ass

From: RichieRocker Date: June 1, 2002 at 18:58
An animalistic band with crazy, songs, there is a lot of talent here, and there are so many good songs. Bach is an awesome front man, and he had guitar players who helped back him up.

WARNING!!! Anyone who likes this kind of music especally Skid Row. I suppose everyone knows that Skid Row are bring out a new album this year with Johnny Solinger on vocals(replacing Sebastian Bach) If you want to get your hands on Johnny Solingers' band before Skid Row you better do it soon!, because once the new Skid Row is released it will cost a mint. Get it now, His band is called Solinger and the album is called Chain Linked Fence.

Skid Row = all-time favorite (w.Sebastian offcourse) Does anyone have the site to Sebastian Bach???????

From: Baris Date: October 1, 2002 at 3:21
GREAT ANIMAL RECORD! One of the best melodic-metal bands, great singer and guitar work. The Skid's music has a very strong basis and quality. I know quite a lot people who became part of hard-rock audience after hearing this animal-album, a phenomenon similar to GNR or Motley Crue outbreak. For a deput this is a real eruption album and stands in the pole-position! My faves; "Can't Stand The Heartache", "18..", "I Rem.. U" and "Youth Gone Wild".

From: robert Date: October 20, 2002 at 18:33
vaya debut!! q año el 89'!!! joder q buenos eran, q buen hard rock hacian, este disco es una verdadera pasada. himnos reveldes y juveniles cargados d caña y melodia..

Just saw Skir Row In Massachusets. They kicked ass, Johnny Sollinger held his own and he can definatly sing, the new material sounded fast and intense, The new album comes out December 1,2002. get it it will be good.

From: Gar Date: February 1, 2003 at 17:30
One of the best debut albums of the 80s. Great songs, great attitude. No filler whatsoever. I think initially their record label wanted to cash in on the similarities to Guns n Roses, but this album stands on its own. Skid Row didn't need to ride on anyone's coattails.

From: jason (FA - Q) Date: February 9, 2003 at 21:10
Rachel Bolan is 39 years old today. This album is one of the best from the late '80's. It's got great vocals, guitar solo's, and over all production.

Es verdad que muchas veces se menosprecia a john por sus salidas a escena pero cuando te topas con un disco así demasiadas palabras para definirlo pero sólo una es la apropiada para este caso,EL MEJOR.

From: slashh Date: March 16, 2003 at 19:13
this albu... it just rocks. the second best debut album of all time(nothin ca beat teh magic of appetite for destruction)...

From: Jimbo Date: March 16, 2003 at 21:59
This may be the best debut of any rock band. (I said MAY). But like many bands, Skid Row put most of its eggs in one basket and never recaptured this blend of heavy/pop magic that made them credible AND listenable. As for slashh's last comment about nothing beating Appetite for Destruction--actually, I find that a sledge hammer does the trick.

From: Dani Date: March 21, 2003 at 11:39
Buenísimo disco. Es una pena que en directo no fuesen tan buenos. Y también es una pena que se pasasen al rock alternativo(porque a eso suena) con "Subhuman Race".

Gran disco.Con clara tendencia comercial pero sin perder un àpice de potencia,desde la prodigiosa voz de Sebastian,hasta la contundencia de una banda absolutamente salvaje.Casi todas las canciones aquì incluìdas se tornaron clàsicos con el tiempo,en especial 18 AND LIFE, YOUTH GONE WILD y I REMEMBER YOU,sin menospreciar al resto del material que me parece impecable.Quizàs uno de los discos de fines de los 80 sin dudas.Pocas bandas se anotaron un debut tan auspicioso.8/10. carro_martin2000@yahoo.

From: steve Date: May 15, 2003 at 17:18
got this album about a year ago, kicks ass, big guns, sweet little sister, youth gone wild, 18 and life, and midnight tornado are my favorites this album fucking rocks and rolls, if you ain't got this cd whatr the hell is the matter with you!!!

From: fernando-spain Date: June 9, 2003 at 22:20
this is a pretty good album with an unbeliable song called 18&life.this cd gave an idea about how great their next cd (slave to the grind)would be,i´ve listened to it 10000000000000000000000000 times and still enjoy it,it is like a jewel for me,so when i die it´ll be for my chidren.i saw them in 1992 at alpine valley and they kicked ass.

From: Punkiz/obsesivo Date: September 24, 2003 at 8:06
El segundo mejor disco de glam-metal que he escuchado y no solo son buenas las baladas,en nenes que no teneis ni zorra,descatan big guns,macking a mess.Pura caña y youth gonna wild,un supertema.Si no lo tienes eres gilipollas.

From: diego Date: October 5, 2003 at 22:36
si k skid row tiene hinchas .aqui hay comom mierda.no me parece n muy buenos ,pero estan en algo .las baladas son lo mejor ,pero piece of me y la mitica youth gone wild son pegadizas .si les gusta el punk heavy escuchen esto.igual es una de mis banda sfavoritas.en vivo son una mierda

Really nice album from the once-masters skid row..Bach is a great frontman and he has one of the best voices ever!!A must buy..I can't say that is a classic sleaze-Glam record,but a classic rock album!!! 9,5/10

From: jack Date: March 20, 2004 at 5:12
the best 80's metal album after 'hysteria'(def leppard),'slippery when wet'(bon jovi),'the final countdown'(europe) and 'metal health'(quiet riot)in my opinion. big guns are definitely one of the coolest songs ever,iremember you is a ballad in a class of its own and youth gone wild is the best metal anthem.

From: ian Date: March 20, 2004 at 5:48
hey jack you forgot to add 'look what the cat dragged in'(poison), 'girl,girl,girl'(motley crue) and 'trash'(alice cooper)

From: poison_fan Date: March 25, 2004 at 4:43
This album has got to be the best metal album of all time with their amazing voice and super guitar riff. 'big guns' is my favourite in this album because of the chorus,especially the 'bang-bang' part. 'i remember you' is one of the best metal ballad i've heard(and believe me, i've heard lots of metal ballad before from 'bringing on the harthache' by def leppard to 'carrie' by europe to 'every rose has its thorn' by poison). the sreamin at the end of the song is awesome!RATING:10/10

From: fallen angel Date: March 28, 2004 at 20:00
definitivamente una joya del hard rock.no tanto por la parte instrumental(y en vivo son un asco),pero hay un feeling extraordinario,ke ni las mejores bandas; como white lion ,firehouse o danger danger ;pudieron igualar.su cuota de agresividad y mayor sinceridad musical defini tivamente los llevo al exito.para los ke les gusta la verdadera escencia del hard.sii te gusta el hard ,y si vives en per( y sino ,no importa de todas forma se puede tener una buena charla sobre esta musica ke nunca morira)

From: fallen angel Date: April 6, 2004 at 21:18
no seran precisamente los mejores en vivo,pero su primer disco si ke fue muy bien producido.una banda ke manejaba parametros distintos a los demas,en estilo y acctitud.esa fusion de punk y heavy ,para los ke no somos puristas ,resulta realmente atractiva.fue justamente esa sinceridad la ke les permitio sobrevivir,sikiera por unos años mas,en la escena rockera ke, tras la llegada de nirvana y el grunge,comenzaba a descartar al heavy metal diego_firehouse@hotmail.com

From: crocks Date: June 16, 2004 at 6:55
With this one i changed my style of music to heavy rock!! This record make people love hard rock, first listening to the ballads (the best ballads are hard and heavy) , and after that all the songs.This is glam , but hard. Listen it, it deserves a lot!!!! 9.8 /10

From: Big Papa K Date: June 29, 2004 at 0:50
Good debut, but one that would have been just average if it were not for those great vocals of Sebastian Bach. The strongest tracks are the ballads "18 And Life" and "I Remember You", but this is all pretty good except for "Can't Stand The Heartache". 7/10

From: Endika Date: July 25, 2004 at 9:45
Gran disco de MR.Bach. Para mi el mejor de Skid Row aunque el Slave to the grind tambien se merece alagos. Canciones como Youth Gone Wild y la increible balada I remeber you hacen de este un gran disco. Cojetelo: 9/10

From: Metal Jay Date: July 29, 2004 at 16:52
Saw Sebastian Bach & Friends in concert awhile back. Back is still the man. He hasn't lost a step. One hell of a show. This album is among the best of it's genre.

From: K.K. Poland Date: August 15, 2004 at 9:23
I totally agree with You Cinderella, 18 and life, youth gone wild, amazing album, 10/10

From: Geoff Date: August 15, 2004 at 21:21
Nothing you can say here that everyone doesn't already know, but what we have here is hard rock perfection. No point individually speaking of the songs because they're fantastic.Just want to say that as a lover of 'Youth gone wild' and 'Big Guns' (As well as '18 a life' of course, 'I remember you' is one of my favourite ballads of all time. Monster track... and those vocals!!! 9.5/10

From: Kip Date: September 10, 2004 at 21:34
Ditto exactly what Geoff said. Those are my favorite tracks here too and I Remember You is one of my favorite songs ever. I did a top 1000 song tournament on line once, and matched up the top 1000 rock and metal songs. (The #1 seed VS the #1000 seed would kick off round 1...) And in the end I Remember You was the last song standing. It's highly regarded by many as the best power ballad of all time and I'm not gonne try and disagree.

From: gener8tr Date: September 21, 2004 at 16:10
An absolute classic debut album... A complete breath of fresh air! WHAT THE F++K happened after this one? I know they got a little "harder," and I like metal as much as anyone, but they seemed to embrace the 90's / grungy movement more than any other "hair-band" of the era. I don't get it, although a few tracks from the subsequent albums were good, they NEVER approached the appeal of this release... at least not in my humble opinion. Too bad, really!!!

From: Artie Date: September 21, 2004 at 18:52
To gener8tr: I can understand where you're coming from, but "Slave" doesn't sound like grunge at all to me. It's in fact one of my favorite albums. It pushes the upper limits of "hair-metal", and is about as heavy as hair-metal can go and still be called hair-metal. "Slave" came out before "Nevermind" did, so I don't see how it embraced the grunge explosion since mainstream '90s grunge didn't exist yet. Btw, I like Skid Row's debut album too. They really progressed after this one though.

From: Artie Date: September 21, 2004 at 18:54

Hey, Snake, y'might wanna check out what year this one was made before you give out awards for best of the '90s'! Do'h! However, nothing on this album can touch the heaviest songs from "Slave to the Grind". Not even close.

From: run2u Date: November 3, 2004 at 16:49
Voy a dar mi opinión,y sólo mi opinión:nada de recomendaciones,etc.Para mi SkidRow en esta época fue LA MEJOR BANDA(o la menos mala)dentro del hard-rock rebelde,macarra y"con pocas luces"de finales de los'80(cuyos máximos representantes fueron los gansos rosas).Rebeldía con rubios de bote(hey,sebastian!),mucho ruido y actitud furiosa-prefabricada mezclada con música predecible,repetitiva y la mayoría de veces cargada de MARKETING.Tanta promoción como pudieran tener las SpiceGirls o Ricky Martin.

From: run2u Date: November 3, 2004 at 16:55
Utilizando esas armas subieron de golpe al podio del rock,probablemente haciendo tantas subnormalidades(no solo Skid)que abrieron las puertas a tendencias opuestas(grunge).Este 1er CD de SkidRow,sin embargo,además de un cantante formidable cuenta con canciones muy pegadizas con toque "sleazy",es uno de los mejores trabajos de su momento.No me gusta lo que representaron,pero sin duda YouthGoneWild,Big Guns,Piece of me...o el baladón I remember you hacen de él un discazo. 8/10 run2u69@hotmail.com

From: isa Date: November 10, 2004 at 15:07
para mi el mejor disco de skid row sin duda junto con el slave to the grind, puro hard rock a muerte, estoy de acuerdo con el chaval de arriba, en directo no son nada buenos y deja bastante que desear el sonido.Con los temas que mas flipo son:Eighteen And Life,Youth Gone Wild

From: El Muddley Date: November 10, 2004 at 16:31

From: Roxas Date: February 1, 2005 at 23:20
Still played to this day, just a great good feeling album. Certainly helped with those long dark nights growing up. 9/10

From: Joan Date: April 10, 2005 at 6:11
Isa, ¿pero que dices? Si por un concierto de Sebastian Bach en el 2005 vas a juzgar a una banda que ha sacado discos como este.. te equivocas. Los tiempos del gran Bach ya hace tiempo que han pasado. Eso te pasa por ver conciertos de grupos que están en el declive de su carrera. Lo siento, pero que Bach tiene una voz privilegiada es indiscutible. Eso si, lo siento por el mierdon del concierto!

From: Dave Stamos Date: May 8, 2005 at 10:55
Su sonido hardrock americano ´80 con tintes punk y ramalazos glam en temas sensacionales como "Here I am" o "Can´t stand heartache" hacen un album muy bueno, y daban un aire fresco a la escena hardrockera mundial. Su segundo disco no pierde las directivas del primero, pero se adentra en terrenos más metálicos y con el tercero confirman que este primer disco tan solo fue un buen momento.Pero para mi con el tiempo han perdido..solo me qedo con su musica q no es poco...

From: CoRuÑaRocks Date: June 7, 2005 at 6:38
Estoy de acuerdo con lo que se ha dicho por aqui en lo referente a su directo. No he estado en ningun concierto de Skid Row, pero tengo muchos videos y la verdad es q daban pena!. Esto ha desmitificado en cierto modo a esta gran banda. Gran banda de estudio, pero mala en directo (donde por otro lado realmente se demuestra la calidad, como ya se ha dicho por aquí). De todas formas reconozco que sus dos primeros discos son magnificos, con grandes baladas y canciones hard rockeras. Y aprecio mucho

De todas formas reconozco que sus dos primeros discos son magnificos, con grandes baladas y canciones hard rockeras. Y aprecio mucho

a esta banda por iniciarme en este rollo. Resumiendo : este disco un 9, a la banda en general, su trayectoria (y su horroroso directo): 6,5.

Great album! But a bit overshadowed by the perfect follow-up. But truly one of the finest debut albums of all time. 9.5/10

I have "Youth Gone Wild" tattoed on my arm and I own this CD ( and STTG)twice, cause the first one I bought is a little scratched for the times I've listened t it!!!I couldn't breath without this album.Take a Look to"Oh Say Can You Scream" :Sebastian don`t always sucked live.I don't totally dig "I Remember You" I Think it brings a wrong idea about the band, and that a lot of people just relate this song to the band makes me sick.One of the greatest albums ever! Aguante Argentina! themartin88@hot

This is the best fucking album I´ve ever heard. There is no doubt: Hard Rock = Skid Row. Sebastian has the most powerful voice in the entire world, he can reach notes that are "unreachable".

I love this record more now, than when it was released. But let's be honest people. This band is nothing now, that Bach is gone. He can't be replaced! 18 and life, Youth gone wild, and I remember you are 3 of the best songs, to come out of the whole 80's metal scene, they are that good. The 2nd record sounds nothing like this. They went heavier and it took a while to like it. But monkey business is where it's at for me on that record along with quicksand jesus. First 2 are all you need.

One of the best hair metal bands has recorded one of the best hair metal record-thats that one.Slave to the grind is great too, but its much heavier than this one.My fav. on that disc is "youth gone wild"-sure you must go wild when you are listening to this one."18 and life" is very good ballad(my sister loves that song) but for me much better is "i remember you".I also recomend first three one from that record. Too bad bach left the band.what is worse than changing the style-they did that-shame

Great Hard Rock, 17 años han pasado y aun en este momento estoy escuchando mi cinta uno de los discos que mas amo cuando era un adolescente solitario y rebelde este album era como mi novia Dios que recuerdos de lejos el mejor de la banda y uno de los mejores de toda la vida Youth Gone Wild & Eighteen And Life siempre seran los cortes mas grandes de este estupendo trabajo pero todos los demas temas cumplen un disco Inolvidable e Imprescindible 9.5/10

From: juan carlos Date: July 15, 2007 at 12:30
Muy buen inicio de los Skids, no podía empezar mejor el disco: "Big Guns" es un clásico ya del HardRock con pelotas! junto a "Youth Gone Wild"(Sonó muchas veces acá en Perú, clasicazo). "I Remember You"(Un shock por estas tierras) tremenda PowerBallad mi favorita junto a "Eighteen And Life". 9/10

If only they carried on with this formula for the next album and after that! Every song on this album is very well produced it's almost faultless. I actually wasn't expecting much with this but it's just so good!

From: GlamSlam Date: August 11, 2009 at 6:03
Best Hard Rock album ever.

From: lancer2430 Date: April 27, 2010 at 0:59
Among my top 20 album ever. The production is faultless. All songs is well written. Never get tired of playing this album. Make my mind go back to when I stil in Junior high with a bunch of my friend get together every weekend to do jam session and just go nuts. I give it 10/10.

From: CC Date: August 7, 2010 at 16:11
I remember buying this on cassette around the time it came out, and I had never even heard anything by the band. I'd just bought a new Walkman and wanted something to try it out, so I decided to take a punt on this album. 21 years later, I sit here listening to the album on my PC ... oh how times change. One thing that hasnt changed though is how fucking good this album is. From start to finish this album just kicks arse. While they got gradually heavier on subsequent releases, they never bettered the mix of commercial rock with heavy metal that they created on this masterpiece. Bachs vocals are the focal point with good reason, as he was probably one of the strongest of his era, but the band was as tight as a ducks arse, and neither has been as strong without the other. Having a debut like this has got to be hard to top (just ask Guns N Roses), but what a legacy it leaves. Every single song on here could have been a potential hit single, thats how good it was.

From: Doug Date: August 9, 2010 at 16:47
"CC" you are spot on, brotha! Every song on this album is great.

From: edwithmj Date: December 29, 2011 at 18:48
Time to expand on my previous comment: The album starts off explosively with Big Guns, moves onto some very catchy and humourous vocals with Sweet Little Sister and then comes onto the super commercial and catchy Can't Stand The Heartache which is the best off the disc I think. Piece of Me isn't as good but still better than other bands' filler. 18 and Life is a great ballad, Rattlesnake Shake and Youth Gone Wild are two other lessers but hard rockers anyway. Here I Am is the other monster of this disc. Superb, lyrics, vocals and rhythm on this one. Makin' A Mess is another hard rocker and I Remember You is the softer of the two ballads and pulled off wonderfully by Bach's vocals. The album ends with the average Midnight which while still OK leaves me wanting something better. This is Skid Row's best effort by far. The subsequent efforts got too heavy and less commercial. This is the formula they should've kept. This has to be heard to be believed.

I love Guns n Roses, but they are not the only band to have an AWESOME debut cd. Skid Rows debut is just as good as GnR's. Big Guns, Can't Stand the Heartache, Sweet Little Sister, Here I Am, Piece Of Me, Makin' A Mess, and I won't even mention the hits, One of my favorites along with the Firehouse debut!

From: Doghouse Reilly Date: December 31, 2011 at 13:55
Before Bach joined the band, Skid Row were supposed to be the next Bon Jovi, but by the time this album got recorded, they had become more like the East Coast's answer to Guns n' Roses. The songs are aggressive and in-your-face, and, just as importantly, the bad attitude felt REAL, not an act or gimmick like a lot of bands at the time, who never missed an opportunity to remind us they were "bad boys" (or boyz, if you prefer), even as they primped and pouted and generally looked ridiculous and came off as not particularly menacing. Skid Row, with a handful of others, actually gave you the imrpression that they actually WOULD kick your ass. Skid Row, L.A. Guns, Junkyard, early Crue, early GnR--don't bump into those guys in a crowded bar, watch your step. White Lion, Poison, Pretty Boy Floyd, Warrant, or anybody else, feel free, spill your drink all over 'em, nothin's gonna happen.

From: Doghouse Reilly Date: December 31, 2011 at 13:59
Okay, so, the album. It has a bit of a glossy '80's production sound still, and a couple more commercial, less-edgy tunes like "Can't Stand The Heartache" (even the band were over this one by the time the record came out, and dropped it from the setlist as soon as possible), but overall, a great listen throughout, even if, like me, you prefer the mind-blowing followup Slave To The Grind. Favorite tracks are "Big Guns," "Sweet Little Sister," "18 And Life," the often-overlooked "Here I Am," and of course, the ultimate fist-pumper "Youth Gone Wild." I'm surprised that wasn't the album title, actually, it would've been perfect.

no need to say much , SKID ROW s debut is one of the best hard rock releases of all time!!sound ,songs,attitude,youth , this one has it all and it becomes a classic !!simply 100/100 for one of the releases of my life!

From: Ydol eM Date: November 23, 2014 at 16:30
Atlantic hit the target with this album. "Sweet" rebels played hard n'heavy with occasional sleaze fragrance and top-class ballads. Followers of GNR mixed with Pretty Maids (without keyboards of course) and Dangerous Toys. Btw. one of the most impressive front cover ever(IMO). 85/100.

From: Doghouse Reilly Date: November 24, 2014 at 10:00
I love Chuck Klosterman's assessment of this band, from his book Fargo rock City. Paraphrasing, but pretty close: "Skid Row weren't a band for kids who spent $11 on hairspray and $80 on leather pants and still got a CD player for Christmas. they were for the kids who stole beer and got in trouble with the police."

hello doghouse.i m not a very big fan of this band but tomorrow i will see them in concert at transbordeur in lyon.they will play in guest of saxon.hope a great concert.

From: Doghouse Reilly Date: November 24, 2014 at 22:47
Have fun, dude. I've only seen them one time myself, in 2000, opening for Kiss, and honestly, they weren't that great, but I've heard they've gotten better with Johnny SOllinger as time goes on. These guys were my Favorite Band (upper-case letters on purpose) back in the early '90's, and as noted, Slave To The Grind is one of my desert-island discs.

From: 123charpenay Date: November 26, 2014 at 7:53
hi doghouse.it s the first time i ve seen a hard u s band in concert.skid row unfortunately plays only 45 minutes.2 or 3 songs were not really at my taste.(not enough melodic).but the rest waouh!!!!top class hard u s with super choruses who hooked you immediatly.very very great performance!

From: rick kerch vzla Date: October 19, 2015 at 18:18
Solid debut of a hard & edgy Hard Rock act but sold as well as a "pretty boy band" and somehow it killed the music which was good...tracks 5,6 & 10 were huge hits...tracks 1,2,7 & 11 are also good cuts...so in general lines this Record is quite appealing and good...87/100

From: Doghouse Reilly Date: May 13, 2021 at 16:02
I'm such a big fan of Slave To The Grind that I tend to forget how much I loved this first album as well, and just how much fun it is. To me, this type of music is made for summertime, being young, and driving around, so I usually have those kinds of mental images when I listen to it—not memories, because I was too young for that in 1989; more like the memories I want to have had. And Skid Row's debut is perfect for that kind of scenario. On this album, they were so good at straddling the line between being hard enough for the metal crowd, yet with enough huge hooks to appeal to a much wider audience without pandering. This record is dated by that wet, '80's production, and a few songs that sound like they belonged in 1986 like "Can't Stand The Heartache," but there's still that hard edge that only came post-GNR. My older sister claimed to love Skid Row, but what she really loved were the three big singles and, more importantly, Sebastian. She never asked to borrow the tape, and even t

... even then, I sensed she was only pretending to like the other songs that I made her listen to. When "Monkey Business" came out, she bailed in a hurry. She cried when the news broke that Baz had a three-year-old son.
