Biography

Sebastian Bach (born Sebastian Philip Bierk in the Bahamas on April 3, 1968) is an American vocalist that has been in several groups. Despite rumors to the contrary, his legal last name is still “Bierk” and not “Bach.” He has played in numerous unknown and short-lived bands (e.g. Herrenvolk, Madam X, V05 and Kid Wikkid), but his destiny changed when he received a demo from Skid Row in 1987. The group signed for Atlantic Records and released their self-titled debut album in 1989. Meeting with huge success, Bach served as the frontman in Skid Row until he was dismissed in 1995.

In 1996, Bach formed a rock supergroup, The Last Hard Men, with Frogs guitarist Jimmy Flemion, The Breeders lead guitarist Kelley Deal, and The Smashing Pumpkins drummer Jimmy Chamberlin. The group recorded a full-length, self-titled album for Atlantic Records, who then optioned not to release it. In 1998, it was released on Kelley Deal’s label, Nice Records, with no fanfare and a very limited pressing of 1000 CDs, which may have been sold via mail order only.

On November 28, 2001 Sebastian appeared at New York Steel, a benefit concert in response to 9/11. He appeared early in the show, left to perform on Broadway, and returned at the end when all performers gathered for a final song.

In October 2002, Sebastian was signed to perform in the national touring production of Jesus Christ Superstar and played the role of Jesus successfully in the show until April 2003, when he was fired for alleged diva-like behavior. He is currently working on a DVD version of VH1’s Forever Wild that will be released in June.
