Former SKID ROW drummer Phil Varone has responded to ex-SKID ROW singer Sebastian Bach's claim that Varone's recent decision to pose nude for an upcoming issue of Playgirl magazine is "further proof that the name 'SKID ROW' has completely lost all credibility, cool, accuracy and is now devoid of all meaning in every way."Varone, who was one of eight patients featured on the "Celebrity Rehab" spin-off series "Sex Rehab With Dr. Drew", told the New York Post, "I'm grateful and proud of my time in SKID ROW and sorry [Sebastian] feels that way." Playgirl representative Daniel Nardicio defended Varone: "This coming from a man [Bach] who preceded David Hasselhoff in 'Jekyll & Hyde' on Broadway? Now that's the epitome of uncool." Varone is featured on the cover of the winter 2010 issue of Playgirl. The publication, which includes a 20-page spread on the drummer, is due to hit newsstands on December 15. Varone joined SKID ROW in 2000 — about four years after Bach parted ways with the group.
