Skid Row, Ted Nugent To Open For Kiss

It looks like Skid Row is back… sans Sebastian Bach.

The glammy metal outfit, with Texan singer John (Johnny) Solinger at the mic, will be opening for Kiss when the legendary band tours this spring. The outing scheduled to start March 14, and the band will indeed be billed under the name Skid Row.

After Skid Row parted less than amicably with Bach in 1997 (see “Bach Skids to a Halt” ), the remaining members, guitarists Dave Snake Sabo and Scotti Hill, bassist Rachel Bolan, and drummer Rob Affuso, formed a new group in mid-’98 called Ozone Monday with singer Shawn McCabe (see “Skid Row Just Another Ozone Monday” ). Affuso was eventually replaced by Charlie Mills.

McCabe recently quit to return to his former group, Mars Needs Women, and the remaining members opted to disband. When they met Johnny Solinger, who formerly fronted his own band, Solinger, in Texas,
they decided to reform Skid Row, with Mills remaining on drums.

The Kiss tour is shaping up to include three acts; also on the bill will be Ted Nugent, according to the bowhunting rocker’s official Web site.
