SKID ROW guitarist Scotti Hill has spoken out on the group's decision to split with longtime manager Doc McGhee prior to the release of the group's recently-completed album, "ThickSkin". In an interview posted at the group's official web site (, Hill explained the decision by saying that "[bassist] Rachel [Bolan], [guitarist] Snake and I had been with Doc since the beginning. We signed with him in 1988 and we had a great run together. But in the last few years we began to feel that Doc's vision and our vision of the band were very different things. We didn't feel that the ideas coming out of his office represented what we were about anymore. So we had to make a tough decision. It was a hard thing for us to do but I think it was best for the band. There were no hard feelings and he has offered to help us out with anything we may need in the future. He is a class act and a true legend in the music business. I'm proud to call him a friend."

SKID ROW are currently shopping "ThickSkin" for a label deal following their split with longtime home Atlantic Records. A spring release is expected.
