SEBASTIAN BACH Finally Sells New Jersey Home That Was 'Deemed Uninhabitable' After Hurricane Irene

According to NJ Advance Media, former SKID ROW singer Sebastian Bach has sold the Lincroft, New Jersey home that was condemned after massive flooding from Hurricane Irene in 2011. The house that was once featured on MTV's "Cribs" went for $272,500 — about $85,000 less than what he paid more than twenty five years ago.

Bach, who has been living in Los Angeles for the past few years, tells NJ Advance Media, "To me, New Jersey is SKID ROW. That's why I moved there. That's the reason I bought a house there. New Jersey means so much to me about rock and roll. The Stone Pony, you know, Asbury Park. The beach. The boardwalk. The Count Basie Theatre, downtown Red Bank. Jay and Silent Bob's Secret Stash. Vintage Vinyl. I lived in those places for 20 years. For me, walking around Jersey is, like, haunted."

He continued: "I played Giants Stadium when I was 20 years old for 75,000 people. New Jersey is SKID ROW. We came from there. We are New Jersey. So without SKID ROW, I can't be in New Jersey."

Back in 2011, Bach's house was knocked off its foundation after a nearby reservoir overflowed, breaking the bridge next to his home and sending it into his garage. Among the items that he lost in his flooded basement were irreplaceable items such as SKID ROW master tapes, a KISS pinball machine and other band memorabilia.

"How I wish there was a reason to do a [SKID ROW] box set or something before Hurricane Irene hit," he wrote in a Facebook post at the time. "Nobody cared. Now it's too late. Don't know what you got 'till it's gone, indeed."

Bach put the house on the market in 2012, and at once point was asking as much as $669,000 for it.

Sebastian recently said that he "would love the chance" to bury the hatchet with his former bandmates in SKID ROW and reunite the group's classic lineup.

Somewhere under this water is a KISS pinball machine & 2 gargoyles from the Dynasty tour. If you see them floating past your house, they're mine. Or at least they were :(
