Former SKID ROW singer Sebastian Bach has posted the following message on his official web site:
"I am in the process of converting my whole analog audio and video collection into digital. I have literally hundreds, if not thousands, master copies of concerts, studio sessions, interviews etc. both on audio and video. When we were touring with SKID ROW from 1988-1995 I tried to make sure the soundman at the board recorded the show every night, and I have board mixes and pro-shot video of hundreds of SKID ROW shows on cassette, DAT, and video. Most of these are the only copies of these concerts that exist in the whole world. If I don't transfer all this stuff to digital format now, it could degrade in quality over time, so that is exactly what I am doing. I will give you all a taste of these never-before-heard tapes and videos as I tranfer them into digital format! These will be posted on the MySpace page. First up: Check out 'Rattlesnake Shake' live in Houston, Texas January 29, 1989. Straight off the front of house mixing board. This was the third arena show I ever did in my life and the first one I did without my eyes closed!"
As previously reported, Bach will enter the studio on May 7 to begin recording his long-awaited second solo album, tentatively titled "Angel Down", for a September 2006 release through Spitfire Records. "We are recording the CD in Los Angeles and are putting together tour plans right now beginning with [an appearance at the Rock In Kavarna festival in] Bulgaria [on July 15]," Bach writes on his web site.
