In 1987 Gary Moore, of the other band name Skid Row, sold the rights to the name for $35,000. The band signed a deal with Atlantic Records and their first self-titled album was finally released in 1989.

    At least once again they have a fabulous singer, makes me wonder about what the new material is going to be like.

    This group was amazing from 1989 to 1996. Bach is the best vocalist for them. Can't say anything against Tony and another members. Miss old times :c They were so perfect! :cc

    Solinger is out, Harnell (ex Shy, ex TNT) in. What a shame. The shows with Solinger were always full of energy, even more than the still good Solo-Shows of Bach. However i never been impressed by the bands Harnell was in. Still, i will give him a chance to convince me in Skid Row.
