Taken from 'Like Father, Love Son' by Sebastian Bach, after his Father's death in 2002 :
I was 13 or 14 at the time but the guys in what would eventually become "Kid Wikkid " were all 25 - 30 years of age. As I walked into the audition, there were 3 or 4 guys there in their mid to late 20's, so I thought there would be no chance for me. I might not have had the experience, or stamina of these older guys, I thought to myself, but this isn't a 2 hour show - it's a 3 minute audition. So when it came to my turn to sing, I thought of my dad & what he would do, & I blasted out the highest, loudest, most ferocious scream I could muster from my throat. I touched the scream…… then I caught it. And took that note straight to the goalie. Touchdown!
After the song was over , I looked around the room .
I got the gig .
Easier said than done!
There were 2 major problems which were obvious to all: #1: I lived in Peterborough, not Toronto. Problem # 2 : I was just 13 years old.
I took dad to Mother's Pizzeria (where the WOLF radio station stands today ) . "Ummmm Dad …… there is something I have to tell you . "
" Yeah Bass ?" "I'm moving to Toronto to become a rock star." "No, you're not ." "Yes, I am." "NO YOU'RE NOT . " Dad was serious.
But as the days went by, he realized I was serious too. He knew that my love for music was an exact parallel and possible result of, his love for art. Even though he was not the biggest heavy metal fan in the world, Dad decided to let me move to Toronto, to live with my Aunt Leslie & pursue my dreams. There were even 2 articles published in "Peterborough This Week" at this time about the situation between me & my dad. The first article was called "Peterborough Kid Gets Wikkid " . Underneath that was the second article, entitled "Sebastian's Heavy Metal Career Concerns Dad ".

*NOTE: 'I will Survive' is NOT a Kid Wikkid song
